(Hong Kong, 25 August 2010) Maleficent, the Mistress of All Evil, is furious that she has never been invited to Disney’s Haunted Halloween. She is planning to unleash her darkest power and throw the hottest and most unexpected Halloween party ever. From Thursdays through Sundays from 16 September to 31 October, as well as during Golden Week, Maleficent will enchant Guests with new frightful fun scattered across the whole park. She has even set Sleeping Beauty’s Castle aflame, where the brand new “Nightmare in the Sky” Pyrotechnics Show will be staged during Disney’s Haunted Halloween.
Main Street U.S.A will be transformed into an eerie “Main Street U.S.A. – Ghost Town” where spirits wander and haunt during their Ghostly Gathering. Adventureland has become even more treacherous as the fog-filled Tribal Burial Ground is taken over by zombies, while Tomorrowland is heating up with an Inferno Dance Party. To see and be seen, Guests can treat themselves with a Halloween makeover at the all new Boo-tique.
“Hong Kong Disneyland will soon be starting its5th anniversary celebration. Starting in September 2010, we will be filling a whole year with new surprises and experiences. We will bring a new and unexpected Disney’s Haunted Halloween to Guests this year. “Nightmare In The Sky” is the first time the Park has redesigned the pyrotechnics show for a seasonal program, in which lighting, music, high-definition digital projection and pyrotechnic coalesce perfectly,” said Frederick Chan, Director of Marketing, Hong Kong Business, Hong Kong Disneyland Resort.
