Be honest, you were wondering what it would be like to experience Netflix’s “Squid Game” (오징어 게임) for yourself, right? Ok, the risk of dying is unappealing but other than that, the idea of immersing yourself in such a colourful but deadly world is rather alluring.
Well, thankfully “Squid Game” doesn’t exist in real life, but you can experience a small taste of it in Sunway Pyramid! In fact, they’re hosting a few ‘games’ of their own, but these games are low risk, high reward.
Remember the giant doll from the first game “Red Light, Green Light”? Well, she’ll be awaiting you in the Atrium on the lower ground floor. Don’t forget to freeze when she has her eyes on you! There will also be dolls at the entrance of Sunway Pyramid. With so many eyes around, do remember to observe the usual standard operating procedures (SOPs).
Of course, the doll will have ‘help’. There will be a bunch of familiar red/pink-clad officers around the area. Don’t be afraid to approach them however, especially those at the LG1 Pyramid Atrium. Speaking to them rewards you with a certain card— yes, we’re referring to the invitation card. Take care not to lose it! You may not be able to get into the game with it (as it isn’t real) but there is something else you can do with it.
That invitation card grants the players access to the game in the show. In Sunway Pyramid, it grants you access to exclusive privileges in certain stores! For instance, you’ll get a complimentary Squid Game Corndog at MyungRang with it. Flashing the invitation card at selected participating stores like Kyochon, Mr. Dakgalbi and innisfree will earn you more discounts and promos.
Finally, you can also win a Netflix Gift Code! This contest is only available from 15th October to 24th October, so hustle over to Sunway Pyramid as soon as you can because to win it, you’ll need a little help. Oh, don’t worry, it’s not that difficult. Just muster up some courage to snap a pic with the “Squid Game” doll and post it online! There will only be 50 winners so be sure to visit the doll soon. Here are the full instructions:
Sunway Pyramid’s “Squid Game” pop-up will stay from 13th to 31st October. Maybe instead of binge-watching (or re-watching) “Squid Game” on-screen, get off your couches and pay a visit to the mall instead! After all, season 2 won’t be coming anytime soon although there are already some season 2 theories floating around.
