Ten Drum Culture Village (十鼓文創園區) occupies approximately 7.5 hectares, and contains 22 old warehouses built during the Japanese Colonial Period. In 2005 it was repurposed by the Ten Drum Band, as an idea to revitalize the unused space. Through careful planning, new life has been given to the century-old sugar factory that had been left unused. Its miraculous rebirth incorporates the Ten Drum Band's innovative Taiwanese drumming music to give you Asia’s first drumming themed international art village. At night, Ten Drum Culture Village becomes a dream-like floodlit sugar factory. Huge gears become a stage for nighttime performances and a massive steel molasses vat is used as a rest stop and coffee shop. The site also has a five-story high extreme slide, and Chimei Museum’s Paradise Path passes overhead. The most recent addition, a 7-story free-fall ride, also attracts thrill-seeking tourists.
