Classic Scenes Throughout the Mall — Pixar Ball and Lamp’s First Appearance in Hong Kong
Harbour City takes customers on an eventful movie journey of Pixar through mesmerizing photo spots featuring 12 of Pixar’s animations across the mall, such as Toy Story 4‘s Woody and Buzz Lightyear, over 4 meters and 3 meters high respectively, ready to soar “to infinity and beyond.”

Entering the main entrance from Ocean Terminal Forecourt, customers will discover a 3.4 meters high Pixar logo and a 7 meters high Pixar Fest arch in layering design. It is painted in the iconic red, yellow and blue colors from the Pixar Ball, with images of Pixar’s characters. The iconic Pixar Ball and Lamp installation, 5.2 meters in height, matching the size as that in its headquarters in California, will make its first appearance in Hong Kong at the observatory deck, “Ocean Terminal Deck”, against the 270-degree panorama of Victoria Harbour as the backdrop.

5 Movie-Scene Checkpoints — Incorporated with AR Photo Check-Ins
Apart from taking pictures on-site with the movie characters’ statues, customers can also capture the hidden characters through augmented reality (AR) at five checkpoints. These are made possible by the free Harbour City mobile app, “Harbour Cityzen”. By enabling the “AR Fun” camera on the app, and scanning the movie logos to trigger the characters to show up, customers can take pictures with them just as you are in the movies.

(Game Site: http://event.harbourcity.com.hk) What’s more, Harbour City creates two kids’ activities inspired by the movie scenes from Inside Out and Cars 3. Kids can share how they feel at the checkpoint of Inside Out by picking the respective character’s sticker and putting it on the wall. They can also join the Remote Control “Cars” Lightning McQueen Turbo Racer test drive, where they can get on the McQueen toy cars for photos and be the new legendary racer on track.

Stamp Station Hotspots x Event Exclusive Premiums
