Theme park Ocean Park Hong Kong packs all the ghouls, spirits, and out of this world fun for its Halloween Fest 2018.
This year’s Ocean Park Halloween celebration sees the launch of 13 unique experiences at 11 haunted attractions, including attractions using advanced technology.
One of the highlights is the park’s collaboration with the School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong, which presents Hong Kong’s first haunted attraction with a 360-degree projection and 3D mapping alternate dimension, X-Dimension presented by Yahoo! Hong Kong.
X-Dimension is composed of two sections: the projection zone, where guests put on 3D glasses, before being drawn into a visually-shocking vortex of technology, in which Leap Motion technology precisely tracks hand movements allowing the projection scene to “interact” with them in all directions.
Other advanced technologies include virtual and augmented reality technologies that create more realistic and interesting experiences for guests of all ages, for example, Devil Seeker’s Tale presented by vivo.
Devil Seeker’s Tale combines rich elements from Chinese ghost stories with supernatural exorcism. Guests will pick up a bow equipped with a smartphone device, and through the use of AR technology, will be able to see devils pop up on their device’s screen and shoot them down. They can even compete with their friends to become the best exorcist.
In addition to these technologically advanced attractions, Sanrio characters Hello Kitty, Kuromi, Pompompurin, Little Twin Stars, Cinnamoroll, gudetama, and Bad Badtz-Maru dress up in the “HELLO-ween” costume for the first time to host the magnificent “HELLO-ween” party at Ocean Park.
Ocean Park Halloween Fest 2018 is happening today until Oct. 31, from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. For more details on Ocean Park Halloween Fest 2018, visit www.oceanpark.com.hk.
