SkySymphony and Snoopy make for a rockin’ Christmas at SkyAvenue
Time Square at SkyAvenue recently saw the launch of the Christmas edition of SkySymphony jaw-dropping winch performances as well as the much-awaited appearance of Snoopy, Charlie Brown, Santa Claus and friends.
In his opening statement during the launch, Roger Ong, Assistant Vice President of Promotions and Entertainment at Resorts World Genting said, “The Spectacular Genting SkySymphony Christmas Show themed ‘Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree’ is yet another world-class entertainment feature that the resort has introduced to add excitement to the holidaymaker’s stay.
“The Christmas show at SkySymphony provides a glimpse of how the resort is run with vim and vigour, and how it is capable of breaking boundaries to come up with new ideas and concepts.”
Christmas carollers then stole the limelight, along with 13 Snoopy figurines prominently positioned on the stage. The four-storey high LED screen burst into a spectrum of colours, showing visitors a wonderful Christmas tale involving Santa and his many friends on the North Pole.
As the story ends with Santa’s gifts being placed under the Christmas tree, a 20-foot, real-life pine emerges from beneath the stage, delighting those present. Santa Claus, Snoopy, Charlie Brown, reindeer and elves thereafter took the stage as the Christmas carollers belted out traditional songs coupled with dance engaging dance routines.
The SkySymphony show is a full-blown audio, visual and motion graphics presentation that involves 1,001 winch balls suspended from a four-storey-high ceiling. It is Asia’s largest permanent winch installation, and its first multimedia winch attraction.
The Genting Spectacular SkySymphony Christmas Show takes place at a two-hour interval between 10am and 12am until 31 December 2017. Also to be experienced are three other stories – namely The Forest, Urban Symphony and The Goddess – which are shown every hour after each Christmas show.
Visitors are encouraged to seek out the 52 Snoopy figurines at SkyAvenue in order to take group photos and selfies, and there’s also the Snoopy & Charlie Brown with Friends Meet and Greet session where kids can adults alike can get up close and personal with the Charles Schulz creations. If that isn’t enough Snoopy for you, get acquainted with the larger-than-life six-metre-tall inflatable Snoopy on the premises!
