Travel Report: Studio City Macau.

Studio City Hotel and Casino Macau

February 2018. In the unlikely event I go back to Macau and stay at one of the monster hotels, my hard-earned money would definitely go to Studio City. This is Macau’s cinema themed complex, a palatial 1,600-room structure with a figure of 8 Ferris wheel called The Golden Reel built into the façade.  

Giant dinosaur Studio City Hotel and Casino Macau

February 2018. A Jurassic Park theme dominates the main lobby, with over twenty life-size replica beasts; a Velociraptor Hatchery and a helicopter simulator ride over Isla Nublar.

Warner Brothers Fun Zone Studio City Hotel and Casino Macau

February 2018. The 32.000 sq. foot Warner Brothers Fun Zone is mainly aimed at keeping the kids busy while mum and dad slink off for a movie. Among the many character themed zones, there’s a Tom & Jerry Picnic Playground and a giant assault course featuring the likes of Daffy Duck, Coyote and Roadrunner. Beep, beep etc. 

Batman Dark Flight Studio City Hotel and Casino Macau

February 2018. With limited time that day, Wonderboy and I wasted no time in grabbing tickets for Batman: Dark Flight, a 4D multi-sensory simulator that leads you through an explosive adventure chasing The Joker, Bane and Two Face through the streets and airways of Gotham City. Highly recommended!

The Golden Reel Figure 8 Ferris Wheel Studio City Hotel and Casino Macau

February 2018. You can’t leave without jumping on The Golden Reel Ferris wheel! The slow-moving figure 8 is comprised of seventeen cabins, each holding up to ten people. The views across Macau’s Cotai Island are amazing, a skyline of skyscrapers such as The Parisian in one direction, nothing but undeveloped wetland in the other. A joint Ride & Fly ticket for The Golden Reel and Batman: Dark Flight costs 200MOP (£18 €20 $25).

Like these? Then why not leaf through my many other reports from across China.

I’ve also written a short story series called Challenged in China.

I’ve been living, working and traveling all over the world since 2001, so why not check out my huge library of travel reports from over 30 countries.
