DreamPlay, one of the most exciting entertainment centers in Manila, celebrates its first year anniversary with a repertoire of new attractions, a selection of exclusive activities, and a rousing dance competition. The DreamWorks-inspired interactive play space in City Of Dreams Manila, DreamPlay lets children experience their wildest dreams, whether it’s becoming a kung fu master or soaring through the skies with dragons. City of Dreams Manila Property President Geoff Andres is very proud of DreamPlay as it is the only one of its kind in the world. One of the rewarding aspects of his job, he says, is seeing the faces of children light up as they go through DreamPlay’s different attractions. “They play. They smile. They are engaged. It’s the same with adults. You can see that their imaginations are unlocked, too.”

In conjunction with DreamPlay’s first year anniversary, there will be activities and new attractions:

New attractions

* Watch the 4D theatrical special “Megamind: The Button of Doom” at the Dream Theater. * Enjoy a new lesson at the interactive Kung Fu Fighting dojo. * Create your own movie module with the Penguins of Madagascar at the Dream Studio. * Join a new competition at “Whatever Floats Your Boat.”
