New Warner Bros. Studio Park Coming to Macau This Summer
More theme park entertainment is coming to the world's largest casino market, as Melco Crown Entertainment today announced the development
of a Warner Bros.-themed 30,000-square-foot family entertainment center for its upcoming $3.2-billion Studio City Resort.
The Goddard Group has been providing creative work on the project, which will include a "Batman Dark Flight" motion simulator ride and a world's-first double Ferris wheel, which will be built into the facade of the resort's two hotel towers, at a height of 130 meters [427 feet]. The center also will include character meet and greets and other attractions based on Warner Bros. and DC Comics characters.
Here's a promotional video for the resort, released today and featuring Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert De Niro, and Martin Scorsese:
The Macau Studio City Resort is scheduled to open on the Cotai Strip this summer.
That video was really cool. After watching it, I had to think again if they really build a park there, or if it was just a gag to promote a movie. Seems cool. Also a Batman ride, even if it's only a motion sim sounds fun.
It is definitely stunning. Looks very much like the Wizard of Oz's Emerald City without the green tint. This is competition for Hong Kong Disneyland. Maybe that's why HKDL is adding another hotel resort. Unlike Las Vegas, people don't do casino hopping. This is not due to policy, but because the resorts are so BIG that no resort hopping is needed to take it all in. Each resort is self contained and not walking distance from each other. When I stayed at the Macau Venetian, in comparison to the Las Vegas Venetian, the resort is twice as large and the shopping area is equally twice as large. However, as a tourist, I did visit the historical section for a one day excursion.
