What happens when two asteroids crash into a Gotham City tower? According to Melco Crown Entertainment Limited – the developer of Macau’s soon-to-be-opened Studio City casino complex – you get the world’s first figure-8 Ferris wheel.
Here’s what it looks like so far:
It’s called the Golden Reel and hangs 130m high in Cotai in Macau. If you love Ferris wheels, Batman or anything new then visiting Studio City while in Macau is likely to be on your bucket list.
The Golden Reel is one of the attractions at the US$3.2billion Studio City complex opening later this year.
The new integrated leisure destination resort looks promising and is the next on the list of Las Vegas-style entertainment resorts to open in Macau.
The Ritz Carlton opened in May 2015; Galaxy Macau has a funky tube wave pool in the sky and Sands Cotai Central is a sprawling mega-development that is home to Conrad Macao, Holiday Inn Macao Cotai Central, Sheraton Macao, The Venetian and Four Seasons Macao.
Studio City brings more than a dash of Hollywood glam to Macau, with its Batman Dark Flight motion ride, a family entertainment centre and Fun Zone packed with characters from Warner Bros, DC Comics, Hanna-Barbera Productions and Looney-Tunes.
Other attractions include magic shows at The House of Magic, a cool Ibiza-style nightclub called Pacha Macau, a 5,000-seat entertainment centre for live concerts and a host of events.
