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-essential lights at home for an hour to conserve energy. The night’s celebration went beyond merely turning lights off for a memorable night of entertainment and togetherness.
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.”
As starters, the blackout event kicked off o a high note with life-sized board games of 4-D Twister and Giant 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 8:30 pm 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.
