If you’re into horror experience, then a take a step back into time in Hauntu.
Hauntu (pronounced haunt-you or Hantu if you like) is not your average haunted house. This attraction, which recently opened in The LINC KL, is a combination of theatre performance, role play and storytelling.
So what can visitors expect? You’ll be interacting with real actors, exploring intricate mazes and figuring out interconnected storylines. The backdrop revolves around a 1950s Colle Eastern Hotel (spanning 7,000 sq ft). You and your group of friends (the more, the merrier) will set out on a journey in unraveling the mysteries of Hauntu.
Don’t worry, it’s not rocket science ;)
Hauntu is brought to you by the team behind the global escape room franchise Breakout. “Unlike Breakout, where the aim for guests is to escape and solve puzzles – at Hauntu, the guests take on character roles within the story of the month with the objective of committing a fictional crime or completing a mission”, explained Johnny Ong, co-founder of Breakout and Hauntu.
Consists of 6-10 theatrical actors taking on bellboys, witches, chambermaids, and other charatcers, the 45-minute experience will require you to use your senses – see, hear, touch, smell and feel. Oh, and if you’re easily spooked, be prepared to scream a bit.
“The Thief” is the 1st of 3 interconnected storylines. In the case of “The Thief”, “The notorious Harimao Gang have just planned an intricate gold heist at the Colle Eastern Hotel and you’re the newest member. As the heist goes underway in the dead of the night, it descends into a nightmarish journey of unexplainable events and severe consequences for each member of the gang – including YOU“.
“Each story stands on its own but when you’ve played all 3, you will see the link. It’s like watching ‘Star Wars’, it’s fine for you to watch any episode, but without watching the first or second, you can jump straight to the third episode without missing anything”, co-founder Ka Wai was quoted as saying.
