The Release Lantern is a consumable light source sold by the Party Girl for 1 each during a Lantern Night. They resemble the lanterns seen in the background of this event.

When used, it releases a lantern that will float up into the air, and then disappear after 16 seconds.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Sky lanterns (天灯) are small hot air balloons made of paper, with a source of fire affixed at the bottom. In Asia and elsewhere around the world, sky lanterns have been traditionally made for centuries, to be launched for play or as part of long-established festivities.
  • The Release Lantern resembles the Lanterns in the movie Tangled. This is supported by the fact that the Lantern Night event was first teased as being "straight out of Tangled".[1]
