HONG KONG, Aug. 26 (Xinhua) -- Hong Kong Disneyland has planned a new attraction featuring the alien invasion theme for this year's Haunted Halloween events that are expected to run from Sept. 18 to Oct. 31, the park said Wednesday.

"The (Alien Intelligence) Agency reported that a gigantic spaceship has landed inside Hong Kong Disneyland with signs of alien life detected onboard," it said in a press release announcing the added attraction for the upcoming Halloween.

Some other attractions, such as the Main Street Haunted Hotel and the Demon Jungle, will also come back to the theme park to be part of the Halloween events.

Together with the Glow in the Park Halloween Parade and the Space Mountain -- Ghost Galaxy, they are expected to bring scary and spooky sensation back to the park around Halloween.

Disney villains including pumpkin men, gatekeepers and pirates will also appear at the Scary Photo Fun locations and Mickey will also put on spooky Halloween costumes.

The Haunted Halloween offers will be starting one week earlier this year, with special evening tickets available at 228 HK dollars (29 U.S. dollars), said Frederick Chan, director of marketing for the park's Hong Kong business.

Hong Kong Disneyland is one of the five Disneyland theme parks worldwide. It was inaugurated in 2005 and has since staged Haunted Halloween events for three years.
