View this post on Instagram

Ni review saya tentang Rumah hantu @hauntumy . Mungkin ramai dah tahu yang di @thelinckl ada 1 rumah hantu iaitu Hauntu. Konsepnya berbeza dengan tipikal rumah hantu kat funfair atau themepark. Instead of jumpscare atau hantu yang melompat jerit-jerit kat korang tu, di hauntu mereka lebih pada psychology. Buat korang terasa seperti berada dalam movie seram. Menariknya sebab ada jalan cerita dan pelbagai ending yang berbeza bergamtung pada decision yang anda buat semasa dalam cerita tu. Siap ada plot twist lagi! 😅 . Paling salute ialah pelakon-pelakon di hauntu ni memang sangat talented and menjiwai watak buatkan kita rasa nak datang lagi tengok lakonan mereka. . Kepada anda yang nak rasai kelainan untuk aktiviti bersama kawan-kawan or family boleh datang. Cuma nasihat saya pada mereka yang jenis tak penakut tapi nak join juga masuk bersama kawan-kawan anda, you just play along je dengan whatever happen inside insyaAllah you will enjoy it! Eventho you tak takut, just think that you pay for it so you better enjoy rather than spoiling you own experience. Team kami sangat enjoy sebab masing-masing ada karakter yang menghiburkan 😂 . tag sesiapa yang korang nak ajak ke rumah hantu ni. 👍🏻 . #KualaLumpur4All #GayaTravel #VisitKL #AboutKL #VisitMalaysia2020 #vm2020
