Two attractions at Resorts World Sentosa (RWS, 圣淘沙名胜世界) will welcome visitors for the final time on Sunday, 1 March 2020 as they make way for the major RWS 2.0 expansion and transformation. The Crane Dance (仙鹤芭蕾) and the Maritime Experiential Museum (海事博物馆) will be closed from Monday, 2 March 2020 for the redevelopment of the waterfront promenade and the expansion of the S.E.A. Aquarium respectively.
Specially created for RWS by international show maestro and four-time Emmy Award winner Jeremy Railton, the Crane Dance premiered on Christmas Day, 25 December 2010 and tells a magical and touching story about a pair of mechanical cranes and how their love for each other transforms them from inanimate forms into real birds. At 10 storeys high, the Crane Dance is one of the world’s largest dancing animatronics show extravaganza and a visually-stunning waterfront performance at RWS, featuring digital art, LED displays, astounding light and water effects, pyrotechnics as well as an original score that beautifully narrates the crane’s graceful courtship ritual.
Opened on 15 October 2011, The Maritime Experiential Museum is Singapore’s first and only museum dedicated to the exploration of the Maritime Silk Route. Through engaging exhibits, shipwreck artefacts, life-sized ship replicas, and a wide range of educational programmes across 15 immersive galleries, the attraction takes guests back to one of the greatest eras in history, where the tales of sea adventurers and the growth of sea trade between Asia and the Middle East are told. Guests get to experience fleeing pirate invaders aboard a burning ship, and face the wrath of the sea amidst a treacherous storm before sinking into the depths of the ocean through a multi-sensory simulation known as Shipwreck at Typhoon Theatre.
