Train to Busan Horror House
Train to Busan comes to life in Genting Highlands as Resorts World Genting collaborated with virtual reality specialists, Vividthree, to launch a railway line of horror based on the 2016 blockbuster South Korean movie, Train to Busan.
With zombies at every turn in Seoul, make your way to Seoul Station and board the Train to Busan for a journey you’ll never forget. As you venture deeper, it is a battle to get yourself to safety in Busan as you try to not get bitten and infected by zombies.
If you make it to the safe zone, be sure to take part in interactive activities in which you get to strap on a body armour and wield guns to protect your fellow mankind. Experience a Virtual Reality game where you get to fight more zombies - they are not as scary as the horror house zombies.
