We spent an exciting afternoon at the newly opened ABS-CBN Studio Experience at the fourth level of TriNoma. Studio XP, which is divided into three parts—Reality, Fantasy and Retail Studios, offers so much fun for Kapamilya fans. It’s like stepping into your favorite TV world.
Here are our favorite things to do there:
Enjoy the country’s first 4D films at the Kapamilya Theater—there’s ASAP 4D which brings you a heightened ASAP musical spectacle and the theater game Misyon: “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.”
Enter the Pinoy Big Brother House and then, using your skills to complete tasks with your housemates, try to get out of it.
Work at the It’s Showtime Director’s Booth and see if you can survive all five segments.
Belt out a song of your choice at The Voice Open Mic and see which of the judges turn for you.
That’s Lyca Gairanod, champion of the first The Voice Kids. She sang John Legend’s “All of Me” and yes, she got a four-chair turn.
Sit on the iconic The Voice judges’ chair.
If you get lucky, video chat with your favorite celebrities—yes, live.
