STU­DIO CITY

To fully ex­pe­ri­ence all that Ma­cao has to of­fer, one must jour­ney to its high­est point in or­der to view the full­ness the city has to of­fer and nowhere is it bet­ter for you to be able to view the en­tirety of Ma­cao than from the top of the

Golden Reel Ride lo­cated at Stu­dio City, the world’s first fig­ure eight-fer­ris wheel which rises some 130 me­tres into the air.

Atop the ride, the en­tire world of Ma­cao ap­pears un­hin­dered from its spa­cious 17 steam­punk-themed cab­ins ac­com­mo­dat­ing up to 10 peo­ple each. The ride is said to be in­spired by a Hol­ly­wood-style tale of two flam­ing as­ter­oids ca­reer­ing through the build­ing’s main façade. On days with a clear view, guests atop the ride can ex­pe­ri­ence some spec­tac­u­lar views of the Co­tai strip, the city and the bay area. Other eye-catch­ing sights atop the ride in­clude the lux­u­ri­ous swim­ming pools of the Co­tai Ho­tels, Stu­dio City’s spa­ciously de­signed gar­dens and the gi­gan­tic an­gel-like stat­ues in front of Stu­dio City.

As far as at­trac­tions in Stu­dio City goes, to miss the spec­tac­u­lar ride of the heart­pump­ing, adren­a­line in­duc­ing, Bat­man: Arkham City in­spired Dark Flight at­trac­tion is pos­si­bly akin to miss­ing the lottery it­self. One can­not stress how ut­terly amaz­ing this fan­tasy 4D sim­u­la­tion ride is. Fans of the Arkham City series should cer­tainly not miss this im­mer­sive ex­pe­ri­ence which plunges au­di­ences into Bat­man’s world and re­veals the most in­no­va­tive projects Wayne En­ter­prises is cur­rently em­barked on. The 4D flight sim­u­la­tion ride will also fea­ture the lat­est flight sim­u­la­tion tech­nolo­gies and un­matched vis­ual graphics which will pro­vide au­di­ences the im­pres­sion that they are fight­ing along­side the Caped Cru­sader in Wayne En­ter­prise’s lat­est fly­ing pro­to­type, the Bat Plane. No hero saga is com­plete with­out its list of vil­lains which in this case in­cludes The Joker, Bane, Har­vey Quinn, Poi­son Ivy and Two Face as the Caped Cru­sader races through the city of Gotham along­side the Bat Plane in at­tempts to pre­vent fur­ther chaos in Gotham. Au­di­ences can ex­pect a va­ri­ety of mul­ti­sen­sory spe­cial ef­fects as the Bat Plane jour­neys through hid­den sew­ers, the sky­line of Gotham city, and spe­cial at­tacks from the men­tioned vil­lains. In ad­di­tion to these two at­trac­tions, Stu­dio City also of­fers two other at­trac­tions which in­clude The House of Magic and the Warner Bros. Fun Zone. Tick­ets to these at­trac­tions can be found at www.stu­dioc­ity-ma­cao.com

CO­TAI SANDS THEATRE

Men­tion the “Jour­ney to the West” and ev­ery true-blooded Chi­nese would tell you that it is per­haps the great­est tale of an­cient Chi­nese mythol­ogy and the tie up be­tween Co­tai Sands Theatre and Hua Yang Group in bring­ing this mag­nif­i­cent mas­ter­piece to life is cer­tainly noth­ing short of epic.

Util­is­ing the most ad­vanced 3D ef­fects, LED screen pro­jec­tions, video map­ping and full sur­round sound, the epic tale of the Mon­key King is brought to life through cre­ative light­ing ef­fects, grace­ful chore­og­ra­phy, sonorous mu­sic and spec­tac­u­lar colour­ful cos­tumes.

Based on the orig­i­nal works of the “Jour­ney to the West” epic and fur­ther min­gled with other dra­matic ele­ments, the Mon­key King tale brings au­di­ences across a myr­iad of lo­ca­tions, switch­ing in be­tween the hu­man and the fairy world, de­monic do­mains, the un­der­wa­ter lair of the Sea King and the heav­enly king­dom of the Jade Em­peror and Bud­dha.

Au­di­ences fa­mil­iar with the Chi­nese epic will be de­lighted to find fa­mil­iar char­ac­ters such as Xuan Zang, Zhu Ba­jie and Sha Wu­jing em­bark­ing on the epic jour­ney west to re­trieve the sa­cred scrip­tures of the Bud­dha.

TOP AND BE­LOW Bat­man from the Arkham City fran­chise makes a killer ap­pear­ance.
