Showcased at The Bubble, a dome-shaped theatre and one of the iconic landmarks featured at Macau’s “City of Dreams” entertainment resort, the Dragon’s Treasure is a 10-minute visual extravaganza that tells the story of the mystical Dragon Pearl and its mysterious powers.
Visitors embark into an oval shaped room where they stand for the 10-minute show (no need to sit down for such a short show anyways, really!) to witness this fascinating visual extravaganza. The journey takes visitors on a magical journey set in a fictional land situated beneath the City of Dreams resort. So, the first thing that visitors see is the landmark buildings that make up the City of Dreams. From here on the visual effects take the visitors to a fictional kingdom that is full of various weird and wonderful characters and beings.
The show commences with a Chinese astrological circle that features all the animals in the Chinese zodiac calendar. Since the year 2011 is the year of the Rabbit, so a large beautiful Rabbit emerges from the calendar and goes around the room greetings everyone.
Some parts of the show seem very realistic, such as when the visual effect of the sea, complete with swimming sharks and fish, are shown. You’ll easily be fooled into thinking that you were standing in an underwater aquarium. All in all there are the sensory adventure to each of the respective aquatic kingdoms of ice, tropics, volcanic and solar entities.
As visitors are taken on this 360-degree visual voyage, it’s almost like watching a 3-D video game but on a larger scale. For computer game addicts, or those who expect this to be something like a PC game on a large scale, the Dragon’s Treasure may seem a bit of a disappointment because the only non fun part of the whole experience is that you (i.e. the visitor) do not get to touch or control any part of the show.
Nevertheless it is exciting, adventurous and very pleasing to the eye if you want to treat yourself or your loved ones to something unique and artistic. It’s the kind of stuff that children or young adults would love to have plastered onto their bedroom ceiling to gaze at every time they go to sleep.
The show is concluded with around a million visualised golden coins dropping from the ceiling to give the visitors a golden coin shower, which is a symbol of giving a blessing for good luck, fortune and prosperity in the coming year.
The Dragon’s Treasure was designed and produced by Falcon’s Treehouse LLC who have used a combination of high definition video content, an amazing set for their background music and over 29,000 theatrical LED lights to create a stirring multi-media extravaganza.

If you are an investor or a trend watcher then you may find this website useful as investing has a lot to do with personal observations and finding the ideal trend or next big thing. The average human on the street frequently knows far more about the state of the economy than politicians, university professors, subject matter experts, and financial analysts who seldom travel, or if they do so, only from one hotel to another hotel! The pulse and vibrancy of an economy is nowhere more visible than on a country's streets.
