Many may still have fond memories of Resorts World Genting’s mascots comprising of Tabby, Allie, Joe, Callie, Benny and Geno. They were introduced more than 25 years ago. Last year, they were given a fresh new look and were introduced through the SkySymphony show, Jungle Jam. The five-minute show features a dance performance onscreen that is reflected through the 1,001 winch balls that make up different multicolored shapes. Figurines of these characters were also unveiled at the Theme Park Hotel lobby and at the Skytropolis Indoor Theme Park which features whimsical and playful décor.
Coming alive this school holidays the mascots, now affectionately called the Genting’s Highland Heroes will give you and your family a fantastic treat from 25 May to 30 June 2019 at the Skytropolis Indoor Theme Park and special events at the Pavilion titled the Genting’s Highland Heroes Adventurous Holiday.
“Resorts World Genting’s theme parks have been the go-to family destination for decades and our mascots played a huge part in putting a smile on visitors’ faces whenever they came up for a visit. The mascots were given a fresh new look and we have also added the latest addition Benny the Entertainer s sun bear and Callie the Dragon to the group. They will be this generation’s lovable characters that have many stories to tell and share with our audience. All the content that we are building for the Genting’s Highland Heroes will relate to day to day life and we want them to be role models for the children,’ says Sanjay Nadarajah, Vice President of Theme Park.
Step into the Pavilion that is transformed into a luminous jungle lit up with fluorescent colours and work your way through the different stations. Walk under the canopy and be amazed by the ‘modern’ rainforest with bioluminescent qualities of purple, blue, pink and green and its mysterious flora and fauna that hang from above.
Take photos with all six lovable characters, four of which will be familiar characters with a brand new look at the themed gallery. Meet the amazingly smart Allie the Elephant who loves dancing to the rhythms of the Rain Forest; Tabby the Tiger whose courage and strength makes him a protective friend who will never let you down; Joe the Orang Utan with a natural curiosity finds joy in sharing his knowledge and discoveries and Geno the Dinosaur who is more like a faithful and playful dog. Two new characters have been introduced including Benny the Entertainer, the friendly leader of the pack who is a master of magic tricks, singing and dancing as well as Callie the Dragon a small yet incredibly powerful creature who holds great and mighty powers but stays loyal to her friends above all.
