A launch event was held on 27th Mar 2014, at Wheeler's Yard located at 28 Lorong Ampas, where we had a night of extreme thrill and fun!

We were first greeted by a brutally bloody scene, a mocked up crime scene.

It looked so real that one of the uncle working nearby came asking what had happened and I really do not know whether to laugh.

Then there were "Policemen" & "Policewomen" who will interrogate everyone in the crime scene and do a truth detection scan check.

And individuals are required to take a picture for the entry pass.
Then we finally gain entry to the party where we are welcomed by by eerie Skeleton!

Attendees are challenged to go through a 4-stage test to be qualified for a lucky draw and first stage is taking the Brain Hemorrhage Shot and it is pretty easy task as the shot is pretty sweet and easy for intake.
Came second stage is Chocolate Crispy Creeps where you can dip these fried cocoon into the chocolate fondue before digesting.

Then came the Multiple Stab Wounds where we stood beneath a transparent case with knives inserted at both sides.
And the final stage is where one is challenged to pick up the earth warms in bare hands and...

having a SNAKE wrapped between you!!!

Finally the programme started!  We are welcomed by a series of Parkour performance and most of us are captivated by their stunts!

 Parkour Performance was pretty amazing for all!
Sonya Davison and Stephanie Carington took on the role of the host and they invited the attendees to came up on stage to try out the challenges!
