Official opening ceremonies were held on June 12 for the family entertainment destination at City of Dreams Manila. Attending were Mr. Lawrence Ho, co-chairman and CEO of Melco Crown Entertainment and DreamWorks Animation Chief Executive Officer Mr. Jeffrey Katzenberg.
The cutting edge 5,000 sq. meter creative play-center has enjoyed more visits than originally anticipated when the facility first launched with a soft opening in March.
DreamPlay features twelve original attractions including learning Kung Fu with Po, the Kung Fu Panda; exploring Shrek’s swamp with the big green ogre himself; testing dragons for flight alongside Hiccup and Toothless; embarking on seafaring adventures with the Penguins of Madagascar. Each franchise area represents a different type of interactive learning, with Kung Fu Panda teaching physical activity and agility; Madagascar involving physics, buoyancy and trajectories; Shrek teaching food preparation and cooking skills at ‘Cooking with Gingy’; and ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ exploring the principles of flight and aerodynamics.
The ‘DreamPlay by DreamWorks’ play-center is open every day from 10am to 10pm, and is situated on Level 2, Shops at the Boulevard retail arcade in City of Dreams Manila.
