Nickelodeon’s Takotown: Fright Express Takes Families on a Frightfully Good Halloween Ride Aboard the Fright Express

We had a spooktacular and unforgettable Halloween experience last Oct. 31, 2016, courtesy of Nickelodeon Takotown event held at SM Megamall. My little family trooped to the Megatrade Hall with Keisha sporting a Maleficent costume.

nickelodeon-takotown-1Nickelodeon Takotown: Fright Express is a one-of-a-kind Halloween experience where over 4,000 Nick fans were treated to an afternoon packed with frightfully-fun tricks and treats, surprises and activities, with the highlight being the Spook Station’s Terror Tour.

nickelodeon-takotown-3This event invite was a breather for my family most especially to my little girl because we had been too busy and somehow exhausted with her 7th birthday party last October 23. Hence, we weren’t able to join any Trick-or-Treat activity, even in our own village. That’s why we’re more than grateful to be part of this one. This was the perfect Halloween activity for kids and the kids-at-heart since Nickelodeon turned a usually scary event to an epic celebration.

At the opening of Takotown, attendees were treated to an exclusive screening of Nickelodeon’s newest shows—School of Rock and Regal Academy. Live-action show School of Rock, based on a group of overachieving prep school students who band together and learn how to rock it out, was a hit. Regal Academy showed a hilarious and an exciting new take on some of the best-loved fairy tales, which focused on the adventures of Rose Cinderella, the newest student at Regal Academy.

The Terror Tour took us to an exciting and interactive travel experience. With four special train stops, kids departed for a journey to the Haunted Mansion, where they saw old, creepy-looking picture frames that had real-life costume characters do the scaring.

Along the Cemetery area, passengers weaved through cobwebs and encountered white ladies and ghosts, with skeletons all over the place, while floating coffins swarmed one of the train stops. Filled with spooky trees and a strange abandoned cabin, the Scary Jungle stop left guests screaming and asking for more.
