Spooky and non-spooky things to do in Klang Valley this October

Alexa, play the “Ultimate Halloween” playlist on Spotify because — BOO! — we’re ready for Halloween! If you are looking for ways to have a spooktacular time this Halloween, we have conjured up Kuala Lumpur’s best ghoulish events to get you in the spirit of the season. Or, if you’re not big on the Halloween scene or just prefer to not scream your head off, check out events below the scare-o-meter.


For people who love all things creepy

Nights of Fright

In October, the nights will be long and full of terror at Sunway Lagoon’s Nights of Fright. As night falls, the theme park opens its doors for its seventh edition Halloween event, equipped with heart-stopping scares and horrors to scare you silly. Here’s a sneak peek — some of Hollywood’s most famous horror killers are set loose in Slasher Street!

Date: 4 October – 3 November 2019

Venue: Sunway Lagoon



The creepy-looking house in Hauntu (pronounced “Haunt You”) looks like it’s straight out of a James Wan’s movie, but it also hides a dark mystery. Hauntu features an immersive horror experience, the first of its kind in Malaysia. It’s like watching a horror flick, except you’re part of the movie. 

If you’re one of those sickos — *cough* like us — who enjoys being scared, Hauntu is definitely an experience you don’t wanna miss. Especially on Halloween.

Date: Opens all year round

Venue: The LINC KL
