~Blackout Fest turns theme park’s Surf Beach into a special outdoor festival in the dark~
Sunway City, 24 March 2018 – Sunway Lagoon’s Surf Beach welcomed guests for its first Earth Hour Blackout Fest – in conjunction with the Earth Hour global initiative by encouraging guests to switch off all non-essentials lights at home for an hour to conserve energy. The night’s celebrations went beyond merely turning lights off for a memorable night of entertainment and togetherness.
As starters, the blackout event kicked off on a high note with life-sized board games of Twister and Jenga, water activities such as the FlowRider and inflatables games namely the “Dome Bouncy House” and “Gladiator Challenge”.
When it comes to food, guests were spoiled for choice with various food outlets ranging from Cubes Pizza, Starbucks, Nathan’s Famous, Burger King and more. Besides that, guests can also expect to savour Malaysians’ favourites such as “char keoy teow”, “roti canai”, “roti john”, fresh coconut water, “teh tarik”, and more.
After devouring the scrumptious food, the Earth Hour initiation commences at 8:30pm when all the lights were turned off and the giant block letters spelled “Earth Hour” were lit. The hour of darkness lit up beautifully in the dark, and the Surf Beach echoed with serenades of live music performances by talented local artists, The Impatient Sisters, V5 and RazQa.
Guests were further entertained through the blazingly captivating Thumbuakar Fire Performance and the night concluded with Sunway Lagoon’s original choreographed production, the Tale of Mount Berapi.
Sean Choo, General Manager of Sunway Lagoon commented, “Earth Hour is not just about conserving energy, but to disconnect from gadgets and reconnect with people. We have our local artists on board to this event for an extra special night, aside from the fun and interactive activities to get public outdoors with their family and friends. Apart from the day park’s attractions offered, this shows that we are still one of the best avenues for the Best Day Ever!”
