Mini Beasts is back by popular demand at Robina Town Centre after its dazzling debut in 2020, bringing with it the much-loved giant insect quartet, and dropping a brand-new entertainment series that will provide the perfect post-lockdown antidote for families needing a healthy dose of fun.
Coming in at a colossal four metres in size, the glittering creatures are brought to life through cutting-edge technology; bejewelled in thousands of tiny lights, colourful textiles and special effects to create a captivating spectacle and contactless experience throughout the centre for shoppers to admire and engage with.
The insect invasion comprises a shimmering Australian Swallowtail Butterfly hand-crafted with over 2,800 lights; a Neon Cuckoo Bee that buzzes when activated by laser-powered sensors; a humming Cicada; and larger-than-life Australian Jumping Spider, each individually designed with customised light and sound technology.
Families can follow the interactive trail to discover the brilliantly-coloured quartet in key locations around Robina Town Centre, using special QR codes to not only track down the throng of flying beasts, but also collect a Mini Beast show bag once the journey is complete and go in the draw to win a $500 centre gift card.
For parents wishing for something a little more ‘hands on’ for the kids post-lockdown, a fresh new Mini Beasts activity program is also landing at the Centre from 21st September, coinciding with the launch of the spring school holidays.
From Build-A-Bot Workshops to a not-to-be-missed ‘Animal Encounters’ show hosted by Wild Rangers, and a Bug Wind Chime Decorating Workshop, entomologists of all ages are in for a real treat next month.
