There are two kinds of people when it comes to horror experiences: the ones who love it and the ones who hate it. If you’re one who finds joy in eerie, thrilling and heart-thumping experiences that fill your body with an adrenaline rush, consider a visit to Hauntu for a unique immersive horror adventure.
Located on the second floor of The LINC KL, Hauntu offers Malaysians a chance to immerse themselves in an engaging thriller experience different from the conventional haunted house.
Pronounced “haunt-you”, the theatre performance-cum-haunted house is a blend of live theatre, role play and storytelling where guests take on the roles of characters in a story, interact with other characters performed by real actors and make decisions that will affect the outcome of the experience.
Upon arrival at Hauntu, guests will be checked in to the Colle Eastern Hotel — a fictitious building constructed in the architectural style of British colonial buildings of Old Malaya. Guests will be given a character to take on within the storylines in the infamous hotel containing a dark mystery while working together with other teammates throughout the whole adventure.
While the creators of Hauntu are also the team behind the global escape room franchise Breakout, the whole experience is unlike the adventure game where guests need to solve puzzles in order to escape. Instead, Hauntu requires participants to interact with the cast of six to 10 actors who are integral to the theatrical story with the objective of committing a fictional crime or completing a mission. Guests can expect the actors to perform their characters in full costume including bellboys, witches and chambermaids to ensure each guest has an authentic and eerie experience.
As Team FEMALE braved our hearts to experience the horror, we were really impressed with the interactive storyline that challenged us to think on our feet as well as the superb acting skills by the actors that made the whole experience feel so surreal. And without a doubt, we definitely let out a few loud screams in fear as we frantically tried to carry out our mission.
The mysterious and paranormal sightings revolving around Colle Eastern Hotel interconnects throughout three different storylines in which one story will be revealed to the public each month over the span of three months. Therefore, guests will still be able to have the complete experience regardless of which story they begin their Hauntu experience with.
