Indoor Playground at Orchard transforms into house of horror this halloween

Orchard Central’s new indoor playground, X-SCAP8, is celebrating Halloween this year with 3 key fright zones.

Located on the 7th floor of Orchard Central, thrill seekers can look forward to these horrific activities..

Slasher House Obstacle Course

This Obstacle course is the centre stage for X-SCAP8’s first-ever Halloween Xtravaganza. Guests needs to maneuver around the house of gore to escape from the Obstacle course.

The Legend of the Red Apple

According to the urban legend, those who can peel a red apple in front of a mirror at midnight can see the image of their “future spouse”. However, if they fail, they will be haunted by the unwanted spirit.

In this challenge, guests enter a pitch-dark room, illuminated with nothing but the light from a candle. They then have to peel a red apple without breaking the skin with the help of a mirror.

Brave souls willing to complete the task will be handsomely rewarded with goodies.

Spook Magic Show

This is a spooky magic show in a dark haunted theatre. With only 7 thrill-seekers at a time, the show is an intimate experience that “questions your sanity and bravery”.

And many more..

Singapore Ranks 3rd In Asia For Internet Affordability, 15th Globally For Connection Quality

According to the latest Digital Quality of Life Index by Netherlands-based VPN service company Surfshark, Singapore is ranked 3rd in Asia for Internet affordability, after Japan and Korea.

The study examines 117 countries and indexes each country according to five pillars that impact the population’s overall digital quality of life. The five pillars include internet affordability, internet quality, e-infrastructure, e-security, and e-government.

Singapore’s rank was 4th last year. The significant drop in ranking is due to a lower score in the e-security pillar. However, the other pillars such as internet affordability, internet quality and e-government saw improvements.

Here’s a breakdown of our results:
