MBS cancels final drone show on 18 Feb due to mechanical issues, apologises for inconvenience

MBS cancels drone show on 18 Feb, no replacement show added

Those planning to watch the final Chinese New Year (CNY) drone show by the Marina Bay Sands (MBS) should note that it has been cancelled.

MBS said that the cancellation of the last show on Sunday (18 Feb) was due to “mechanical issues”.

The integrated resort (IR) also apologised for any inconvenience the cancellation caused.

MBS cancels drone show in the interest of safety

In a statement sent to MS News on Saturday (17 Feb), an MBS spokesperson said the cancellation of the final drone show was due to “mechanical issues with the drones during the scheduled pre-show tests”.

“The safety of the team and members of the public is our priority,” the spokesperson added.

MBS will not be adding more shows to replace the one it cancelled.

Display was supposed to take place across 6 nights

This means the drone show on Friday (16 Feb) was effectively the fifth and final one.

The display titled ‘The Legend of the Dragon Gate’, was initially due to take place across six nights starting from 6 Feb.

One of the highlights was when the fleet of 1,500 drones converged to form majestic dragon silhouettes.

MBS first cancelled the 6 Feb show due to ‘unforeseen circumstances’ and replaced it by adding a show on 12 Feb instead.

After three shows, the show on Saturday (17 Feb) was rescheduled to Thursday (15 Feb) and the start time pushed back to 9pm from 8pm.

On MBS’ Facebook page, some people who were planning to come down for the show on 18 Feb expressed disappointment at the cancellation.
