Imagine at Dubai Festival City sets new world record

DUBAI, May 7, 2017

Dubai Festival City welcomed thousands of visitors to Festival Bay on May 4 as part of the launch of its second record-breaking Imagine show – A Child’s Dream.

At the event, Guinness World Records officials confirmed that Imagine has the largest permanent projection mapping in the world, after achieving the largest water screen projection in the world at its launch in December.

More than 5,000 people were treated to an array of entertainment, including star performer Lynn Al Hayek winner of The Voice Kids Arabia 2016, who made her UAE debut, as well as prize-giveaways hosted by Kris Fade and the Virgin Radio Street Team. The pinnacle of the evening was a jaw-dropping display of fireworks to celebrate the new show, which takes spectators on a wonderful journey through the vibrant imagination of a young child.

During the event, Dubai Festival City gave kids and adults alike the chance to have their dreams come true. Crowds queued up at the Imagine ‘Dream Station’ to sketch their dreams which were projected on the InterContinental Dubai Festival City using special digital technology. The Dream Station will be open to all every day from 6pm onwards until May 17.

According to Steven Cleaver - director, Shopping Centres Dubai, Al-Futtaim Group Real Estate: “To be a double Guinness World Record holder is something we are truly proud and are privileged to be able to share it with our thousands of visitors. Dubai Festival City is a place for celebration, so we cannot wait to share another spectacular addition of the daily Imagine attraction to our guests over the coming weeks and months. Festival City has become a hub for entertainment, dining and leisure, so we expect visitors to come and visit us again, to enjoy the IMAGINE shows in a world class environment.”

Dubai Festival City’s global attraction Imagine is available to watch for free every day throughout the year, with the shows ‘A Child’s Dream’ and ‘Stardancer’ commencing after sunset at Festival Bay. - TradeArabia News Service
