Ocean Park Hong Kong is bringing back its Chill All Night series, which will allow visitors to enter the park every Saturday in June for free to watch sound and light shows, as well as live performances, as part of the Happy Hong Kong campaign. The event will take place from 6.30pm-9pm on June 3, 10, 17 and 24.
The highlights of Chill All Night include two multimedia shows that will run for a total of 20 minutes. The first, Soul of the Ocean, comprises original music, projection mapping, and special effects to depict the summoning of Animo, an ancient spirit that dwells within the heart of Aqua City Lagoon. Next up is Visions of Hong Kong, a presentation of impressionist landscapes that feature the city’s lush natural beauty, architectural wonders, and multi-cultural diversity using lights and fountain displays.
All the park’s daytime rides and exhibits will be closed during this weekly event. Visitors can dine at three of the park’s restaurants – Neptune’s Restaurant, Ginger Grill, and Lakeside Chill – as well as watch a variety of live performances and play at the various game corners set up for the evening.
Visitors can attend Chill All Night without making an online reservation, but entry will be granted on a first-come-first-served basis due to the park’s capacity limits. The live performances will begin at 6.30pm, and the multimedia shows will run from 7.45pm-8.05pm and 8.30pm-8.50pm.
Ocean Park introduced Chill All Night in November 2022, and is reviving the event for Happy Hong Kong, a campaign to give SAR residents the chance to experience new recreational activities. So far, there have been two Gourmet Marketplaces at Wan Chai and Sha Tin, and a Cinema Day when movie tickets at theatres across the city were priced at HK$30.
Other planned events include a third Gourmet Marketplace on June 3 and 4 at Kwun Tong, the Harbour Chill Carnival at Wan Chai Promenade during weekends in July to August, and the 2023 Olympic Day and Asian Games Fun Run on June 18.
