Get seriously spooked out this October.
This hospital walk has all the makings to give you the creeps right before Halloween. There’s a night walk happening at the Old Changi Hospital on October 17, which is the most popular haunted spot in all of Singapore. [Featured Image: The Paranormal Guide].
This Halloween special event already has 500 people expressing interest already, so it looks like spooky season is already capturing the nation! ExplorerSG, who are running the event, might have just struck gold with this concept.
As creepy spots go, Old Changi hospital ticks all the boxes. It was built in 1935, and held 50,000 prisoners of war during the Japanese Occupation. There are even rumours that Japanese Secret Police used a torture chamber at Old Changi to gain information from the prisoners. Since 1997, the spot has been abandoned and reports of paranormal activity have been attributed to its name.
The tour takes visitors through the main and back entrances on a spooky walk. Unfortunately, the public are not allowed inside the hospital as it remains a restricted access site. Organisers have warned the tour is not for the faint-hearted and should be attended with caution. Sign us up. Once we can get past the 500-name strong waiting list, that is.
While this may be full for now, those interested should still register interest on the meet-up page. We can all hope that similar events could be happening in the future. If more spaces free up, catch us shaking with fear at the back of the line!
You can register your interest in the event at the Old Changi Hospital walk meetup page.
