Macau's Cotai Strip Resorts are welcoming some new non-gaming elements this summer. The world-famous cartoon studio DreamWorks Animation has reached a licensing agreement with Sands China to bring its cast of animated characters to Sands Cotai Central.
From July 1st, the resorts will present a series of performances, parades, dining experiences, meet-and-greets and photo shoots highlighting characters such as Po from Kung Fu Panda; Shrek, Fiona and Puss in Boots from Shrek; Alex the Lion, King Julien and the Penguins from Madagascar and Toothless and Hiccup from How to Train Your Dragon.
According to the licensing deal, events, shows and offers such as room packages will be available throughout Cotai Strip Resorts, being the Conrad, Sheraton and Holiday Inn on the properties of Sands Cotai Central, as well as the Venetian Macau.
In addition, it was disclosed that there will be a DreamWorks-themed Ice World and a 3D light and sound show towards the end of this year.
During question time a representative from Sands China said the project is the first phase of the alliance and they had “options” to expand in the future.
Yoshi Maruyama, the Global Head of Location-Based Entertainment for DreamWorks Animation revealed that this is a “long-term” partnership and there is no limit on which characters DreamWorks could bring to Cotai as their relationship grows.
