The ‘Legend’

Like we previously mentioned, Hysteria is a plot-driven experience. As it goes, the haunted house is owned by a family who has mysteriously lost their children in the middle of the night.

Some of the residents you'll meet in this experience include Sykomaniak, Maddy Butler, and Fifi Sue.

The experience involves the guests entering a haunted house which is packed to the brim with shocks and surprises. Each dimly lit room and dark corridor is hiding something scary that'll petrify you and make you scream like a 5-year old!
