What makes this experience even more special is the collaboration with local cultural organisations and traditional arts experts, including Pusaka, who ensured authenticity and a deep appreciation for Malaysia's traditional legacy. In fact, Pusaka even contributed costume accessories crafted by one of its artisan communities in Kelantan.

Hauntu made its debut in 2018 at The LINC KL, offering a haunted house experience set in a decaying old hotel dating back to the colonial era of the 1950s.
