Halloween Fest 2017 at Ocean Park, Hong Kong – the largest Halloween event in the region – will feature 11 haunted attractions and 12 experiences.
The headline attractions will include a new attraction filmed to the SAW franchise – SAW presented by Blue Girl Beer. In Buried Alive presented by Yahoo!, guests will experience a simulated burial where they will be buried alive alone.
For the first time in the event’s 40 years, there will also be two family friendly attractions. Whiskers & Friends Halloween Party and Spooky Candy Factory, will be open to guests every day from 5 to 31 October.
Vivian Lee, Executive Director of Business Development and Education of Ocean Park, said, “As we celebrate our 40th anniversary, this year’s Halloween Fest is our largest ever, offering a unique style of thrills and chills never seen before. Now in its 17th year, this year’s show-stopping event is set to test the limits of our guests’ fear, surprising them with a full range of terror and fun, including recreated experiences from SAW, one of the top grossing horror film franchises; an eerie experience of being buried alive; haunting stories of old Hong Kong; and encounters with different types of phobias.”
“We introduced the all-day-and-night format for Halloween to elevate its appeal among family guests a few years ago. To immerse our guests in more Halloween fun, we will extend the operating hours of two family-targeted Halloween attractions from Halloween days to non-Halloween days. Guests can now enjoy Halloween fun every day from 5 to 31 October.”
Eva Au Yeung, Events & Entertainment Director of Ocean Park, said, “SAW is one of the best thrillers of all time. With the franchise making its long-awaited comeback this October, we are thrilled to partner with Lionsgate to build this movie-themed attraction. Guests will face their deepest fears as they endure intense experiences and survive terrifying contraptions, with the movie’s iconic tag line ‘Do you want to play a game?’ echoing in their minds.”
The headlining spooky show this year will be Hell’s Grand Finale. It will feature a series of eye-popping shows and breath-taking performances. Scare Zone – Alley of the Dead, will also return to bring surprise scares to guests.
