International WaterSky Spectacular which is showcasing the “Eye-On-Malaysia” giant ferris wheel at the Titiwangsa Lake here has added another attraction to boost tourism in this city.

The new attraction — “Theatre of The Waters”– has the world’s biggest and most powerful water screens which feature facets of enchanting Malaysia in a kaleidoscope of amazing images and colourful lighting.

This mesmerising tapestry of images, staged simultaneously at four locations around the Titiwangsa Lake shoreline, showcase the people, places and achievements of Malaysia in a new format that combines laser projection, pyrotechnics and on-water ski performances.

Each of the four screens of water is a massive 40 metres wide and 15 metres high and is artistically enhanced with colour laser beams and high powered projectors.

“Theatre of the Waters is a world-first for Malaysia,” said the executive director of the event organiser MST AD Suria Sdn Bhd, Widyanty Yusope, to reporters before a media preview of the water screens here Friday night.

The theatre, which will be launched by Federal Territories Minister Datuk Zulhasnan Rafique Saturday night, will be on show nightly from 9pm along with a programme called the “Dance of Lasers”.

MST AD Suria’s event director Peter Sheppard said that different images of places and faces of Malaysia would be displayed each night.

“We are also planning for a special display in August in conjunction with Malaysia’s 50th Independence Day, of which I cannot disclose at the moment,” said Peter.

Sheppard also told reporters that the “Art of Fireworks” show would be held from 9pm Friday to Sunday and will end Feb 25 while the Wet & Wild Ski Show, which is held from 9pm Wednesday to Sunday, will have its last show on April 7.

The business director of the company, Jamilah Itam, said that to date 750,000 people had visited the Eye On Malaysia and “the numbers would increase to one million this weekend” with the launching of the Theatre of Waters.
