Incanto – behind the stage

Incanto, Festive Grand Theatre

I’ve been invited to a backstage tour at Festive Grand Theatre, the current home of Incanto. Together with other bloggers, we had a special look behind the scenes. We didn’t uncover any secrets to the stage illusions (of course not!) but we had encounters with some of the cast and crew, followed by a treat of the show itself.

Incanto has been showing since last November at Festive Grand Theatre, Resorts World at Sentosa. You can find my original full review here.

Marine Life Park – dolphins from the air


Marine Life Park opened to the public last Thursday, 22nd November 2012. While there is no further construction taking place at the park, the from the air series will continue as we take an extended look at Marine Life Park’s Adventure Cove Waterpark in operation.

The opening of the world’s largest Oceanarium was blemished with the unfortunate passing of Wen Wen, an Indo-Pacific Bottlenose dolphin. This dolphin died en route to Singapore. A candlelight vigil and memorial service will be held for the dolphin on 2nd Dec 2012. The remaining 24 dolphins (from the original group of 27) are now at the Dolphin Island section of Marine Life Park, acclimatizing to their new home.

The loss of another captive dolphin has stirred up the angry nest of animal activists, causing Resorts World at Sentosa (RWS) Facebook Fan page and local news websites to be flooded with comments, urging for the release of the remaining 24 dolphins in captivity.

Note: My blog entries on Marine Life Park are here to provide coverage and share content that other sites do not offer. These entries are produced for documentation purposes and as personal reviews and trip reports of Marine Life Park. I do not get paid by RWS. While I enjoy taking photos and blogging about attractions, my entries are not direct endorsements for Marine Life Park. I am not oblivious to the issue of dolphin hunting and dolphins in captivity, having viewed campaigns and research findings by activist groups as well as the responses by the Marine Life Park.

Edit 29/11/2012: Please do not jump to conclusions on the overall enclosure size for the dolphins, or the living conditions in the enclosure, because these details cannot (and SHOULD NOT) be inferred solely from the photos in this entry.

Incanto Logo © Resorts World Sentosa

Mere months after the end of Voyage de la Vie‘s record run, Resorts World Sentosa announced a new show to grace the Festive Grand theatre. Billed as a theatrical magic spectacular, Incanto is truly a spectacle – 90 minutes packed with heart-stopping action, and bewildering illusions.

Marine Life Park: S.E.A. Aquarium – sneak peek

Viewing a Shipwreck

I’ve provided a lot of aerial photography updates on Marine Life Park, with my Marine Life Park – from the air series. As only the Adventure Cove Waterpark is built above ground, there isn’t much coverage on the S.E.A Aquarium. However, there were interesting changes recently. Here’s a sneak peek at S.E.A Aquarium, the world’s largest oceaniarium.

S.E.A. Aquarium (Southeast Asia Aquarium) is home to over 800 species of marine animals. It promises the world’s largest window to the ocean and is also the world’s largest aquarium. Exhibits at S.E.A. Aquarium will bring guests on a discovery tour of marine life and environments, from Southeast Asia to African subcontinent, possibly more. There will be a mix of different viewing windows, from the usual glass walls, to a mega glass wall, aquarium tunnels and overhead viewing panels, as well as some smaller open tanks with interactive exhibits.

In this entry, we’ll look at:

– Location and Entrance of S.E.A. Aquarium
– Layout of S.E.A. Aquarium
– Complete list of exhibits at S.E.A. Aquarium
– Photos of some Exhibits!

Marine Life Park – from the air 7

Marine Life Park overview, October 2012
Resorts World Sentosa announced last week that the Marine Life Park is at its final phase of construction and will be open in time for the Resort’s Grand Opening on December 7th. As previously revealed in earlier from the air updates, Marine Life Park is separated into two zones: S.E.A Aquarium and Adventure Cove Waterpark. Another signature attraction at the park, Dolphin Island, will be ready next year.

I’m delighted to share these photos of the Marine Life Park from the air. The park certainly looks complete, with major repair works done and contractors putting on the final touches on the park’s various elements.
