From fine dining in the life-sized British Stream Train to shopping at the Christmas-themed booths, you will definitely fill your day with a super fun time! Here are 6 things you can expect at 1 Utama this time of year;
1. 30-feet British Steam Train with Onboard Dining Carriage
This year, 1 Utama Shopping Mall has stepped up its game by bringing in a life-sized 30-foot British Steam Train locomotive. Located in the middle of town, it is so true-to-life that it even features billowing smoke and stimulated puffing sounds. Children and adults alike can enjoy this remarkable decor that seems too good to be true!
What’s more, is that shoppers can even enter the train and snap Instagram-worthy photos. What’s inside is a glamorous dining carriage where you can sit and chill with your loved ones, while enjoying the panoramic views of the mountains.
2. Diorama Showcase
After a tour of the train and its magnificent carriage, stop by the diorama booth next to the train. You’ll be surprised to see a stunning 3D diorama showcase painstakingly created by renowned local visual artist Eddie Putera Noordin!
If you’ve never seen his works before, this is the time to do so. The visual artist has expertly and beautifully captured scenes of the mall’s cosy Swiss Alps town and train set miniatures with his fine craftsmanship – which is absolutely magical!
3. Choo-Choo Train Ride
Children and families will be delighted to know that 1 Utama has also brought out another fun activity for you to do. There is a smaller version of the Steam Train, but this time it actually moves around!
