Based on the blockbuster 2016 South Korean zombie apocalypse movie Train To Busan, Resorts World Genting unleashes a railway line of horror for two months that will offer a unique blend of horrific thrills and scary fun to fans of the movie and fans of horror in general.
Developed collaboratively between Resorts World Genting and virtual reality specialists Vividthree, the Horror House blends practical effects, intricate sets, as well as cutting-edge visual and virtual technology to fully immerse guests into a familiar world where the stakes are high and terror is always just around the corner.
All those elements, which made Train To Busan a runaway cinematic success, have been carefully transitioned into a unique, one-of-a-kind hyper reality experience at the Train To Busan Horror House experience.
The experience will consist of several areas, each with its own set of interactive activities. Following the plot of the movie – where the father and daughter meet in Seoul for a trip to Busan – the first part of the Horror House is themed around Seoul Station.
The second part of the Horror House takes place on the actual Train To Busan. This is where the actual spook begins for thrill seekers.
Just as the movie’s characters had to battle their way to the front car of train in hopes of surviving the journey to Busan (where a quarantine zone has been established), the Horror House tasks guests with a challenge: to make it from Train Platform and Passenger Train Carriage, through the Chemical Cargo Train and CDC Lab, to safety. The alternative will be falling as one of the infected and returning to haunt those brave enough to continue their adventure. Get to sanctuary, or fall trying.
You will find yourselves trapped in an apocalyptic version of the gigantic train station, fending off zombies and traps as they battle through environments such as the Long Corridor, the Toilet, the Supermarket, the Café and the Mirror Maze to reach their goal: the train that will take them away from this hellish nightmare.
Scary supermarket scene in Train to Busan Horror House. Definitely a nightmare material for even the most hardcore shopaholic.
The Mirror Maze is one of the confusing and challenging part of Train to Busan, I kid you not.
At the two Base Camps, those who have survived the ordeal of the train can take up arms against the horde of zombies in various Virtual Reality and other interactive activities.
These include strapping on body armour and wielding guns to defend the quarantine areas from invading zombies. Just like the finale of the movie – or fighting against time to develop a cure from the ravaging virus.
If all this adrenaline-packed action sounds tiring and sapping, then fret not. There is a payoff for everyone at the end of it: the Seoul Retail Street.
The Seoul Retail Street brings the best of Korean cuisine and K-pop culture as a reward for all those that have survived the horror of the Train To Busan.
The Train To Busan Horror House experience departs for adventure at the Skytropolis Indoor Theme Park from 31 October 2019.
