Dragon Centre is a nine-storey shopping centre in the Sham Shui Po area of Kowloon, Hong Kong. It was the largest in West Kowloon until the Elements opened above the Kowloon MTR station.

History

Located beside the historic Sham Shui Po Police Station, the centre was built on part of the site of the former Sham Shui Po Camp, a prisoner-of-war camp for Commonwealth forces captured during the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong, which was also used to house Vietnamese refugees in the late 1970s and 1980s.

Features

The leading tenant is Sincere, a department store. Sunlight shines from the skylight through to the first floor.[2] A bus terminus is located on the ground floor.[3]

The ninth floor features Sky Fantasia (奇趣天地), a children's entertainment centre,[5] and an indoor roller coaster, the Sky Train (天龍過山車).[6] This hangs from the roof and was the second indoor roller coaster in Hong Kong (the first was located in the Wonderful World of Whimsy in Cityplaza), but it has been closed since the mid-2000s.[7] The eighth floor features an ice skating rink, the Sky Rink (飛龍冰上樂園),[5] and a food court.

The Dragon Centre won the Hong Kong Institute of Architects 1994 Certificate of Merit Award.[8][9]
