The recreated scenes and sets featured include The Abbey of St. Carta from The Nun, The Warren Artifact Room from Annabelle, and The Perron’s House from The Conjuring, amongst other scenes.
The Conjuring Universe Tour is produced by Warner Bros. Discovery Global Themed Entertainment, Sunny SideUp, and Incubase Studio, in partnership with AM PM (HK) and Ace Media Network.

What to expect
Vulcan Post was invited to a preview launch of The Conjuring Universe Tour on August 25. At the venue, located right next to MAJUHOME Concept on Level 1 of The Curve Shopping Mall, we witnessed the ribbon-cutting ceremony, though the event will only be officially open to the public on August 26.
The interactive journey encompasses 20 zones altogether, and pictures and videos are allowed only up to a certain point (before zone 15). For those unfamiliar with the films, not to worry, as the waiting area actually shows trailers of past films to get you up to speed.
A complete walk-through of the tour takes about 45 minutes to an hour. Groups will be led by a tour guide. Making use of technology, fog machines, animatronics, mirrors, and projectors, the tour was truly quite immersive and could be scary at times.
I personally have not watched any of the films, but still found the experience to be very intriguing. The use of clever props and rooms created a captivating journey overall, blending all elements of the three movie series (The Conjuring, The Nun, and Annabelle) into one cohesive storyline.
In our group of 12, there were a few who jolted and screamed at turns, present company included.
At the end of the walk-through, there’ll be a photo zone, then a line-up of The Conjuring Universe-related merchandise, exclusively released for this experience.
We had a great time at the new horror experience, so be sure to stay tuned for a more in-depth review of our walk-through of The Conjuring Universe Tour.
