Designer Jeremy Railton joined with EDC, Technifex and Koolfog to create one of the most unique casino lobby features located in Macau. The Galaxy Casino Lobby Show born from the proverbial fire (or, rather, water) features a 50 foot in diameter ring of water that rises as cascades of fog billow out to enhance the light show that glide through the layers of the water fall. As the ring descends, a simulated 2000 pound diamond is revealed.

Mini shows and features that incorporate the glamour of fog have transformed leisure time in China. “Wow” has come to weave itself into the walls and floors of the Galaxy Casino while a series of amazing features, along with Galaxy’s Lobby Show, all have been chosen to stand out against the surge of luxury casino destinations popping up all over China. Macau has become the newest casino Mecca, turning over $38 billion in 2013. After many years of gambling prohibition, 2008 to 2012 marked growth rates of 29% a year. Far outshining our own Las Vegas, Macau is still on projection for even more revenue growth from the casino industry by 2015.
As more casino and destiny locations move from the States to other parts of the world, architects and designers are taking advantage of technologists who were once exclusively integrated into themed environments, like amusement parks and rides. Special effects, like fog and smoke features, add a layer of enhancement that begs for a new kind of engagement while the experience of luxury takes an upgrade.
