Galaxy Macau gears up for a smurtastic summer

The summer season at Galaxy Macau™ got off to a Smurfin’ great start with the launch of the elaborate “The Smurfs 2 Summer Village” at the resort’s East Square. Inspired by the upcoming movie, The Smurfs 2, the Summer Village is the perfect place for families to escape the heat for some cool blue fun and merriment from 13 July to 11 August.

Every day between noon and 9pm, the world of the Smurfs erupts into action with engaging live performances and themed parades with mascot appearances that transport family members into a real-life Smurfs kingdom. The festive decorations and colorful Mushroom Houses also provide a delightful backdrop for photos. Those who email their favorite shots (in jpeg format smaller than 2MB) to eastsquare@galaxyentertainment.com before 11 August will be entered in the  ‘Smurfy Snap Shot’ photo contest for a chance to win fabulous prizes, including a complimentary night’s stay at Galaxy Hotel™ and lots of UA Galaxy Cinemas movie tickets available.

For kids and kids at heart who want to get involved, a host of Smurf-themed booths will keep fans of all ages entertained – whether they’re playing a game against evil wizard Gargamel’s “Naughties”, doing fun DIY activities, getting creative in the arts and crafts section, or going wild with tattoos and face painting. Game and activity coupons are redeemable for Galaxy Privilege Club members, resort hotel guests, retail and restaurant patrons who spend MOP200 or more at Galaxy Macau, or with the purchase of two movie tickets at UA Galaxy Cinemas. Coupons are limited on a first come, first served basis.

All the Smurf-tastic action reaches a glittering peak on 28 July when the film’s voice over celebrities Sugar Club hit the red carpet for the Gala Premiere of the 3D extravaganza The Smurfs 2 (3D) at UA Galaxy Cinemas. The film opens to the public on August 1 at UA Galaxy Cinemas, so everyone will have the opportunity to catch this can’t-miss summer smash in the opulent surroundings of Macau’s most cutting-edge cineplex.

“Galaxy Macau’s ‘World Class, Asian Heart’ approach extends to every age group, so we’re delighted to be able to create this wonderful ‘The Smurfs 2 Summer Village’ for our valued guests of all ages,” said Ms Janette Kendall, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Galaxy Macau, at the launch ceremony. “‘The Smurfs’ has universal appeal, and ‘The Smurfs 2 Summer Village’ promises to bring the excitement of the new movie to life for our guests and the local community at East Square. With its luxurious, state-of-the-art facilities, there’s no better place than UA Galaxy Cinemas to enjoy a totally immersive 3D experience when The Smurfs 2 (3D) opens here in August.”
