Johor, 2 December 2016 – Thomas Town, Puteri Harbour, in collaboration with Mattel Southeast Asia, presents the final Thomas & Friends™ “Mini & Mighty” Malaysia Tour 2016 in Johor! Up until 7 January, the Tour will welcome all visitors to Thomas Town, bringing spectacular entertainment to fans and enhancing every visitor’s experience at Thomas Town, Puteri Harbour.
Launched in April, the nationwide Tour made its way from Petaling Jaya to Malacca and Penang before arriving at Thomas Town, Puteri Harbour where it will stay for an extended period of seven weeks! With its special exhibition of metre-high Thomas & Friends MINIS Engines, the Tour brings young fans face-to-face with their favourite engine and makes the Thomas Town, Puteri Harbour experience come alive!
“It’s been an exciting year for us at Thomas Town, Puteri Harbour – it’s the first time we have embarked on such an ambitious roadshow with the 70 MINIS Engines which were exclusively produced for the Tour by our partner, Mattel Southeast Asia,” said Fahruddin Najumudeen, General Manager of Thomas Town, Puteri Harbour. “Having touched so many fans of all ages during the Tour, holding the exhibition at Thomas Town itself will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for visitors.”
The exhibition of 70 Thomas & Friends MINIS engines brings added excitement for fans –based on the popular Thomas & Friends television series, among the 70 MINIS are core characters such as Thomas, Percy, James, and Gordon. In addition, it also features surprising MINIS engines themes including Dino, Heroes, Spooky, Racers, Neon, Robo, Chillin’ and Metallic.
Special treats scheduled during this final stop of the Tour include the Sodor Island Maze Challenge and Thomas Town Trivia Game where families can enjoy even before they enter the theme park. On top of that, young visitors can experience the Thomas Bouncy Castle with purchases of two or more theme park passes or a minimum RM200 combined spend at any retail outlets or hotels in Puteri Harbour.
Together, these activities complement the wide selection of Thomas & Friends merchandise available so that young fans can purchase a memento to add to their collection of their beloved tank engines.
Once inside, visitors get to enjoy Story Telling Sessions, the Thomas Town Track Challenge and the recently-launched performance ‘Sodor Surprise’ where kids get to ‘help’ Driver Sam plan a surprise party for Thomas, with plenty of sing-a-long fun!
“The Mini & Mighty Malaysia Tour pays tribute to one of the most popular and well-loved collections around the world, and bringing the MINIS to Thomas Town to end the Tour closes the loop in a very meaningful way,” said Fong Jia-Li, Marketing Manager for Infant and Preschool Category of Mattel Southeast Asia. “For years now, the lovable characters have been teaching and entertaining children, enabling them to learn while they play – this is a role which is very close to our hearts and it’s a privilege for Mattel to be part of this endeavour.”
