Studio City is a hotel and casino resort in Macau. It is Asia‘s first leisure resort to integrate television and film production facilities, retail, gaming and hotels. It is jointly developed by U.S. investment firms Silver Point Capital LP and Oaktree Capital Management LLC and a Hong Kong entertainment company, eSun Holdings Ltd. In June 2011, Melco Entertainment took over a 60% share of the property developer. Studio City Macau held its grand opening on 27 October 2015.
Set against a backdrop of Art Deco-inspired architecture, this magnificent cinema-themed resort encompasses a labyrinth of pleasures: a glamorous two-tower hotel, electrifying entertainment venues for world-class performances, a global range of dining options, spectacular gaming areas and a wonderland of luxury shopping, all designed to bring your wildest imagination to life.
Studio City Macau features an Art Deco design inspired by two asteroids shooting through a Gotham City building. The resort was designed by Goddard Group, a Los Angeles-based entertainment design firm also responsible for the design of Cotai’s Galaxy Macau Resort.
The resort’s two hotel towers (The Star Tower and the Celebrity Tower) are connected by the Golden Reel, the world’s first figure-8 ferris wheel. Boarding at the hotel’s 23rd floor, the wheel features 17 cabins holding up to 10 passengers each. The design was developed by the Goddard Group, and the hardware was manufactured by Liechtenstein’s Intamin Amusement Rides. The 15-minute ride will take guests to a height of 130 meters. Another attraction is Batman Dark Flight, a flying theater attraction.
Studio City is home to a unique food court called Cosmos Food Station, on which guest can look out upon space through giant portal windows. The resort also features a 40,000 square foot children’s playground called the Warner Brothers Fun Zone.
