Christmasland in New Taipei City has become famous worldwide during recent years with being the “largest 3D projective mapping in Taiwan”, and this year, it is using the corridor structure of City Hall on the second floor for the first time to install as many as 900 LED touch-controlled light tubes, closely connecting City Hall and the Christmas Tree with Citizen Plaza as the center, creating a 360° gigantic circular screen. Hsu-Chih Cheng, the Best Sound Effects nominee for the Golden Horse Awards is further invited to design the audio for this year’s main light show, introducing the most astonishing new 6-minute projective mapping experience.

The story for this year’s 3D projective mapping show is unveiled with video games, where Santa Bear and the Square-Headed Bear Family enter the Cosmic Galaxy from a different dimension for an adventure, where magical planets with hidden dangers are the obstacles, and the bears ride on the spaceship to pass through interstellar space and conquer obstacles, avoiding fierce attacks from the demon king in the end to arrive at the colorful and magnificent Christmas Santa Planet! The exquisite animation special effects allow the public on-site to enjoy a realistically fantastic space journey, attracting many travelers to stop here in astonishment to take photos and videos with their mobile phones! (The main light show will be performed on every hour and half hour between 17:30 pm to 22:00 pm every day after the activation of Christmasland on November 16th.)
