From now till Nov. 3, 2020, you can have a frighteningly fun Halloween with friends and family at Universal Studios Singapore and S.E.A. Aquarium.
Universal Studios Singapore brings “Halloween Fun For Everyone”, featuring characters dressed in spooky costumes like Illumination’s Minion Monsters and Sesame Street friends, that you can meet and take photos with.
Both S.E.A. Aquarium and Universal Studios Singapore will also offer a trick-or-treat adventure with free candy, and a costume contest with attractive prizes to be won.
Here’s what you can look out for:
Trail of Treats
At Universal Studios Singapore, visitors can follow a trick-or-treat trail around the park where they will meet Minion Monsters and a whole host of other Halloween characters.
The Candy Ambassadors will be stationed near meet-and-greet characters to give out treats such as free candy, gummies, chocolate and more.
Some of the ones we collected were Potato Crisps, Mentos and Ribena Pastilles.
Here are some characters you can meet and take photos with:
- DreamWorks Animation’s cast of characters from the Madagascar films
- Gru and his family from Illumination's Despicable Me
- Sesame Street friends
- Dracula, Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein
- Minion Monsters featuring FrankenBob, Mummy Stuart and Dracula Kevin

Be entertained by Gru’s cheeky girls from Despicable Me, with their adorable Halloween-themed hat, hair tie and spooky Halloween-themed headphones.
Sesame Street friends
Next, meet Sesame Street friends Elmo and Ernie, who is dressed as an adorable orange pumpkin
Dracula and Bride of Frankenstein
If you’re brave enough, come face-to-face with Dracula and the Bride of Frankenstein (who probably won’t be needing special costumes this Halloween).
Minion Monsters Tricky Treats
The Minion Monsters, featuring FrankenBob, Mummy Stuart and Dracula Kelvin, will make a grand entrance with Candy Ambassadors and a massive float brimming with treats.
Don’t forget to take photos with the adorable Minion Monsters when they get up on stage.
Once you’re done, go on a space mission with Elmo and Super Grover 2.0 on the Sesame Street Spaghetti Space Chase or hop on board the junior roller coaster, Enchanted Airways.
If you’re looking for even more adrenaline rush, go on a 3D battle with OPTIMUS PRIME and the AUTOBOTS on TRANSFORMERS The Ride: The Ultimate 3D Battle, or get your heart pumping on the Battlestar Galactica: HUMAN vs. CYLON™.
Deep BOO Sea at S.E.A. Aquarium
S.E.A. Aquarium will also offer its own trick-or-treat event, SEAA of Treats, where you can collect treats from Candy Ambassadors at designated photo points.
They will each be stationed beside a backdrop featuring illustrations of creepy marine creatures like the anglerfish.
Spooky marine animals
At S.E.A. Aquarium, the Deep BOO Sea event will also give you an opportunity to get up close with the spookiest-looking marine animals like the wolf-eel:
The wolf-eel is known for its massive appetite, strong jaws, and broad molars, which it crushes its prey with.
You can also learn more about the vampire fish, known for its fang-like teeth that protrude from its lower jaw.
The teeth can grow up to 5cm in length and are so long that they have holes in their upper jaws for the teeth to sit in.
Hunt for the Lost Pearls & win prizes
As you learn more about these marine creatures, keep your eyes peeled and hunt for the Lost Pearls which are hidden within five habitats in the aquarium.
Here is one of them:
Find all five of the lost pearls, solve the riddle and take a photo of them all to redeem a prize at the Guest Services counters, while stocks last.
New Rainforest, Intertidal and Coral Reef Habitats
S.E.A. Aquarium will also offer a refreshed exhibit featuring poison arrow frogs and coral fragments, which will give kids a fun up-close experience with a new discovery pool.
Visitors will also get to learn about the rainforest, intertidal and shallow waters as part of this new immersive experience.
The new Rainforest habitat is home to the poison arrow frog, a beautiful but deadly amphibian.
At the Intertidal habitat, guests will come close to animals such as the epaulette shark, which is named after the two large black spots behind their pectoral fins, which resemble the epaulettes.
Here, visitors will also get to see the knobbly sea star, a native sea star found in Singapore waters.
Visitors will conclude their journey at a never-been-seen habitat showcasing coral fragments where they get to learn how the aquarium carries out its coral propagation programme by mimicking one of their natural reproduction methods.
The new zone will also include an activity corner featuring a wall with an aquarium-themed art piece.
For the first time, both S.E.A. Aquarium and Universal Studios Singapore will be offering a costume contest where the most creatively dressed adults and children will win weekly prizes.
All you have to do is post a photo of yourself on Instagram in a costume taken at Universal Studios Singapore, S.E.A. Aquarium and Resorts World Sentosa :

One adult and child will also be selected each day at Universal Studios Singapore and be given prizes on the spot.
