New attraction is part of $409mn redevelopment project of Dubai Festival City
Dubai Festival City, an Al-Futtaim Group’s urban retail destination, will be opening a new multimedia show within the Festival Bay this month.
The immersive show, which will bring together elements such as light, water and fire to dramatic effect, will rival waterfront shows in global destinations such as Las Vegas and Singapore, the company said.
Al-Futtaim Group Real Estate and Laservision, producers of the Marina Bay Sands show in Singapore, have worked together to create the show which will also use giant aqua screens, 30 fountains and surround sound.
It will produce the world’s largest permanent projection surface on the InterContinental Dubai Festival City, five times bigger than the world’s largest IMAX screen.
Steven Cleaver, Director Shopping Centres, Al-Futtaim Group Real Estate, said: “Dubai is one of the top global destinations for tourists and we are bringing something to Festival City that will become one of the most exciting attractions ever launched.”
He added: “This project has been three years in the making and what we have developed is truly an awesome spectacle that residents of Dubai and visitors from all over the world will want to come and see.”
The show is part of a $409 million (AED1.5 billion) redevelopment project of Dubai Festival City.For all the latest travel news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
