This year the Carnival is going above and beyond to bring you fresh experiences along with popular favourites. Exciting new rides will be making their debut in Hong Kong, from a Ghost Train that takes riders through spooky scenes, to Inversion, an electrifying ride that spins daring participants 360 degrees in circles, backwards and forwards. Fans of the Starflyer will be happy to hear the popular ride is back after a two-year absence, giving thrillseekers an amazing bird’s eye view of the harbourfront.

In between the entertaining atmosphere of thrill rides and amusement, there’ll be plenty of chances for sampling scrumptious carnival treats. Favourites like cotton candy and popcorn always delight, and the AIA Carnival offers local delicacies like curry fish balls for a modern twist.

Circus, culinary masters and so much more
