UPDATE: This article was updated with revised dates for the event.

The newest harbourfront space in Hong Kong will open in Wan Chai next month with a maze-themed event. Called ‘A-Maze-ing Harbourfront’, the event will run from March 15-until mid-July, and feature five mazes that the public can enter for free.

Visitors who enter the Time Maze can embark on a journey from the present to the past through tunnels of shadow and light. Then there’s the seemingly endless space in the Infinite Mirror Maze, as well as Lost in the Woods — a paradise hidden within Hong Kong’s unique construction scaffolding and nature. The Light Box Maze is a Rubik’s Cube-inspired installation that emits ever-changing light patterns, while the Air Maze has inflatable installations designed especially for children.

The 10-day event brings together elements of creative art, entertainment, Instagrammable spots and adventure within each of the mazes, which were designed by a diverse group of cross-disciplinary artists and creative professionals. The immersive experience is one of the many ways in which the Hong Kong government hopes to provide new harbourside experiences for residents and visitors to the city, along with monthly fireworks and drone shows.

Earlier this month, it was revealed that the new harbourfront space in Wan Chai would feature Italian artist Angelo Bonello’s renowned ‘Run Beyond’ light art show for a month. There will also be other events taking place along Victoria Harbour over the next few weeks, most notably Art@Harbour 2024, which will have hundreds of luminous light installations at both the Central and Tsim Sha Tsui sides of the harbour.
