Grand Opening of Marina Bay Sands

Last night (17 Feb 2011), Marina Bay Sands just had their Grand Opening celebration to celebrate the opening of the destination’s key lifestyle and entertainment attractions including the world’s first ArtScience Museum, the premiere of Wonder Full Light and Water Spectacular, seven celebrity chef restaurants, and the upcoming opening of the much-anticipated Broadway musical, The Lion King.

The Prime Minister of Singapore, Mr. Lee Hsien Loong had also joined the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Las Vegas Sands Corp., Mr. Sheldon G. Adelson, at the Grand Opening ceremony which was scheduled to take place at the entrance of ArtScience Museum at Marina Bay Sands at the auspicious hour of 3.18pm.

Even though the event is strictly for invited guests only, members of the public were still able to join in the celebrations and witness the event from the Helix Bridge along Bayfront Avenue.

At 8.08pm, everyone basked in the glory of Wonder Full, when Marina Bay Sands’ nightly groundbreaking laser, light, water spectacular makes its debut with a repeat performance at 9:30pm.

With the lastest multimedia technology and special effects, this water spectacular will transform the waterfront every weekend with performances at the following timing:

Fri & Sat: 8:00pm, 9:30pm & 11pm

Sun: 8:00pm & 9:30pm

Starting 10 March, Marina Bay Sands will begin to run the shows on a nightly basis with two performances from Sunday to Thursday and three times on Friday and Saturday.
