That’s how long Resorts World Manila will be celebrating its anniversary and that’s how long you will be thrilled. Be ready for a mix of exciting events and surprises prepared for the foodies, concertgoers, movie fans, bookworms, shopaholics, photo hobbyists, jetsetters, toy enthusiasts, gamers, sportsmen and everyone to enjoy!
Three months of thrills kicked off on August 2 with the remarkable performances of the Queen and King of Soul, Jaya and Janno Gibbs. Top concert artists in the country will also headline the free Thrillapalooza shows at the Newport Mall Plaza in the coming weeks with Erik Santos and True Faith on August 16, Wally and Jose on August 23 and Markki Stroem and Princess Velasco on August 30.
The extravaganza of great music will extend to September and October with your favorite bands and celebrities including The Dawn, Side A, Parokya Ni Edgar, Yeng Constantino, Jennylyn Mercado, Mark Bautista, Rachel Ann Go, Paulo Avelino, Enrique Gil, Aljur Abrenica and Kim Chiu.
While waiting for the concerts to begin, guests can have their photos taken at the Say Thrill Photo Booth. This is not your regular photo booth as we’re using a Van De Graaff generator for a truly hair-raising photo experience. Share your photos on Twitter and Instagram tagging Resorts World Manila for a chance to win awesome prizes when picked as the Photo of the Week. The picture-taking continues when you play Celebrity Dunk Tank with your favorite celebrities and FHM models at the Newport Mall Plaza.
For those in love with our ultra-posh seats at Manila’s only 24-hour weekend movie house, we’re giving everyone a 40 percent discount on your movie tickets at the Newport Cinemas. Get the limited passes for the PhP125 Movie Blowout now available at iGrab.ph!
If you prefer reading books over movies, a Book-A-Thon is scheduled on August 16. Famous authors will be dropping by Resorts World Manila for mini workshops, book signing sessions, a book fair, and meet-and-greet events.
Foodies, on the other hand, can catch our pastry masters from Café Maxims as they collaborate with ace photographer Raymond Isaac at the Chocolate Festival. This will be followed by a delightful chocolate sale at the Newport Mall, which offers big discounts on exquisite chocolate products.
Jetsetters can avail great deals at the Ready Set Travel event from September 20-22. The expo rounds up the best airline, hotel, resort, travel, fashion, and luggage deals all in one location.
While in anticipation for your actual travels, be transported to Germany for an Oktoberfest celebration unlike any other! This absolutely fun fair will be complete with German dishes, beers priced affordably at PhP20, and the highly anticipated billiards, darts, and beer pong competitions. Winners get the chance to win up to PhP1 million per event!
For the whole family, a Halloween Mystic Carnival with fortune telling booths, toy displays for kids of all ages, and an exclusive preview of the TV cult hit The Walking Dead’s Season 4 will open in time for the Halloween. A Trick or Thrill event with acrobats, buskers, party favors, candies, face painting will complete the family’s thrilling adventure on October 27.
