The Galleria on Al Maryah Island Abu Dhabi Launches Family Easter Activities

Abu Dhabi, UAE, March 2017: The Galleria on Al Maryah Island in Abu Dhabi, the luxury shopping and dining destination in the capital, announces the launch of its fun-filled Easter activities for the little ones to enjoy this festive season.  On Friday 14th and Saturday 15th of April, The Galleria will unveil a host of enchanting Easter activities, set to the memorable theme of Willy Wonka and his great chocolate factory. Children will have the chance to enter the chocolate factory with an Oompa Loompa treasure hunt across the shopping centre and find their lucky Golden Tickets as well as an array of arts and crafts.


“Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory” Treasure Hunt

Willy Wonka is coming to town and he is embarking on an Easter hunt at The Galleria with his Oompa Loompa friends. During the Easter weekend, children will be led by one of Wonka’s candy girls to sign up to the Willy Wonka Chocolate Factory, where they will embark on a magical treasure hunt, through the shopping centre. The Wonka candy girls will distribute Willy Wonka treasure hunt bags to registered children, ready to be filled with an array of goodies throughout their journey in participating retailers, as well as the children’s very own Golden Ticket!


To complete the treasure hunt, each child will have to solve the clue of the Golden Ticket to reach the next golden clue, excitingly working their way through the retailers of The Galleria on Al Maryah Island. Enchanting pit stops along the way include an Oompa Loompa workshop, where guests of The Galleria can help them sort the good eggs from the bad eggs. Children will be invited to play a pass the balloon game, encouraging team building and help the Oompa Loompa disclose the next clue. From the Oompa Loompa good egg pit stop, the children will continue on their Easter egg hunt through The Galleria, to the famous Wonka invention room, where the children will watch the Oompa Loompas invent the latest ‘Fizz Whizz’ drink, which will make an unexpected explosion, leaving The Galleria’s mini visitors in Wonka awe.


After the incredible experiments of the invention room, the children will be led to the final pit stop where Mr Willy Wonka will be waiting for them on his giant chair and will disclose the final riddle. Once their journey is complete, children are rewarded with their grand prize from the Oompa Loompas, during a dance show, where Willy Wonka and all his friends will perform together, teaching and encouraging the children to dance alongside them.


The Willy Wonka Chocolate Easter Treasure Hunt will be available on the 14th and 15th April in three times a day, 14:00-15:00, 16:00-17:00 and, 19:00-20:00.
