    Hong Kong Disneyland to transform into an all-new "Dark World" during its Haunted Halloween



    Hong Kong Disneyland Press Release
    8/25/2007

    The door that leads into an all-new and different Halloween season will soon open as Hong Kong Disneyland dares all guests to take a walk on the dark side. This year, the Haunted Halloween at Hong Kong Disneyland will be edgier, eerier and more exciting than ever before.

    From September 25 until the end of October, over 10 mysterious attractions and entertainment offerings filled with ghostly encounters, will appear during the Haunted Halloween at Hong Kong Disneyland. The creepy surprises will begin on Main Street U.S.A. with the Main Street Haunted Hotel. Space Mountain will soon be possessed and be known as Space Mountain – Ghost Galaxy. The pumpkin king, Jack Skellington, will gather his friends from the dark side to showcase UV "transformational" antics right in front of guests in the all-new nightly Glow in the Park Halloween Parade.

    "We invite everyone to come and witness how Hong Kong Disneyland is being transformed into a Dark World this Halloween season," said Jill Estorino, Senior Vice President, Marketing of Hong Kong Disneyland Resort. "In response to guest feedback, we designed this year's Halloween celebration so young adults will have a frightfully good time. The chills and thrills will never end!"

    Guests can enjoy the Halloween entertainment with regular admission. The Park will extend its hours of operation on Fridays and Saturdays, as well as on October 31, to 11pm. Available only during the Haunted Halloween at Hong Kong Disneyland, a special evening ticket for weekend goers will be launched. Priced at only HK$198 (for all ages) guests will have even more flexibility to enjoy the Park from 6:30pm to 11pm (available on Fridays or Saturdays and October 31 only).

    Here are the frightfully good times that guests can expect:

    The Main Street Haunted Hotel

    A secret passage has been discovered on Main Street U.S.A., which will bring curious guests to the once famous Main Street Haunted Hotel. The Hotel has seen tragedy after tragedy; numerous guests including a honeymooning couple have disappeared within its walls. It is believed that these tragedies are connected with the bizarre experiments that the one time owner Jack Maxwell carried out, along with his wife, Victoria. Brave guests can attempt to not get lost in this timeless space. While guests appreciate the luxurious decor and fine details that gave this hotel world renown more than a hundred years ago, they should beware of the hair raising haunts and living ghosts around every corner!

    Heed the hidden secret passages, strewn throughout or guests may never be able to make their way out…

    Glow in the Park Halloween Parade

    This spooky new seven-float sensation glows in the dark, as over 100 Cast Members including eight never-before-seen characters rock their way through the Park every evening in an attempt to transform Main Street U.S.A. into Dark World central! Jack Skellington, together with his creepy Pumpkin Men, will lead the procession and guest will have the opportunity to behold the horror of Dr. Finkelstein's Lab! Scream with the Disney Villains and gasp at the daring Red Devils with their spine-chilling acrobatics. Guests should pay special attention so as not to miss the spooktacular transformation that will take place whenever the mysterious UV lighting effects strikes the parade; even guests will be transformed as part of the "glowing" antics! Don't be surprised if these wicked and spooky characters try to recruit guests to become part of their dark world.

    Space Mountain – Ghost Galaxy

    They say no one can heard screams in the cold depths of space, this Halloween the screaming will never end at Space Mountain – Ghost Galaxy. Space Mountain has been reinvented in a new and creepy way that will make hearts race and skin crawl like never before. Get lost in the terror of a frightening new soundtrack and the hair-raising visual effects, with scary apparitions and ghoulish monstrosities around every treacherous bend.

    The Haunted Tree in the Sleeping Beauty Courtyard

    If guests are lucky enough to escape the eeriness elsewhere in the Park, there is still no refuge at the Sleeping Beauty Courtyard, which will be overtaken by The horrific Haunted Tree with its sinister branches. It's worth a closer if one is daring enough! It will be terrifying location to snap a few pictures and there may be some unexpected surprises in the photo…

    "Everyone, including families and children will discover all the surprises and fun that our Haunted Halloween has to offer," added Jill Estorino.

    The haunted offerings will never end as the decor and music throughout the Park go through a complete transformation. Step into a spooky scene in Adventureland to take a picture with the wickedest of the wicked, including:

    Cruella De Vil (101 Dalmatians), Jafar (Aladdin), Captain Hook (Peter Pan) and the Grim Gatekeepers.

    Meet favorite Characters as they carry out frights and delights. Join Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Pluto, Chip & Dale, Donald and Daisy for a picture in their spooky Halloween costumes. Halloween treats will be available on weekends; and over 100 themed F&B and 130 Halloween merchandises items will be in restaurants and stores. Guests of all ages can take part in the Halloween fun, so stay tuned for more details! Guests staying at the two themed hotels can also take advantage of the special

    Thanks Jason. My wife has a business trip to China during that time. She wants me to go with her ... I'd love to check this out at HKD, but not sure I will be able to go.
