To celebrate the Caped Crusader’s 80th birthday, DC is bringing Southeast Asia’s first ever Batman anniversary event to Resorts World Genting which will take place from today onwards until 10th July 2019 at Resorts World Genting’s SkyAvenue mall.
Fans of the Dark Knight can expect an array of Batman-themed activities and exhibitions spreading throughout the mall including meet-and-greet sessions, live shows, and also photo opportunities with the life-size statue of Batman and Batmobile! (How cool is that?)
“As Asia’s leading integrated resort, we are proud to host this internationally recognised franchise from DC Comics whilst simultaneously celebrating the character which has played a prominent role in mainstream culture.”
“I am confident that families visiting will have a fantastic time as they interact with the numerous activities and exhibitions spread throughout the mall,” says Kevin Tann, Vice President of Entertainment & Events, Resorts World Genting.
Here are a list of exciting things you can find at Batman 80 Years Anniversary at SkyAvenue:
- Watch the world’s first Batman SkySymphony show at Level 1, SkyAvenue, which will be an extravaganza that stimulates audio and visual senses as 1,001 winch balls transform into the various versions of the Bat-Emblem. Simultaneously, the massive 360° LED screens that surround the area will feature graphics from different eras throughout the 80 years of the Dark Knight’s history.
- Fans can take photos with the life-size statue of Batman, 1:1 replica of Statues of the Batmobile from the 1989 Tim Burton-directed film and the Batmobile from “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” in 2016, at Level 1 of SkyAvenue.
- A section of the event, located at SkyAtrium, is devoted to panel displays of Batman’s key milestones, illustrating the development and history of Batman from 1939 to 2019.
- For visitors who love to snap photos, there will be a special trick-art wall at the SkyAtrium.
- Children can participate in a mini Batmobile racing track.

- Batman’s ‘chibi’ replica of statues including The Joker and Poison Ivy and others will be displayed at Level 3 of SkyAvenue. Here, fans will see the typically austere Batman depicted in a new light.
