'Ascending' c/o Melbourne Star
But coupled with it's LED lightshow, OFFERING ONE CHILD THE CHANCE TO BE INVOLVED, and this iconic attraction's something not to be missed! Yes, these school holidays (June 22 - July 12) Melbourne Star will be giving one soon-to-be-very-popular youngster (4-15yo's) an opportunity to design an LED lightshow spectacular for gobsmacked onlookers to admire.
How it Works:
Young Melbourne Star riders collect their colouring-in template from the Star Shop. Using it, they actualize their inner Michelangelo. That's right, they design their own LED light pattern. Their masterpiece, submitted to Melbourne Star's Junior LED Lightshow Creator competition. The winner, to have their pattern dazzle the Melbourne City skyline.
'Lit Up' c/o Melbourne Star
The winner of the competition will be invited to flick the lightswitch, and thus become Melbourne Star's first Junior LED Lightshow Creator. On the evening of Friday August 28th, they'll not only commence their own lightshow, but share it with 9 friends from their own viewing-cabin. Not to mention, procure a first-class view of the Docklands fireworks in the process.
And to commemorate: receive their original blueprint, alongside a photo of their dazzling creation. Framed and ready, to hang or honour on the mantelpiece.
