Among the heroes celebrating Easter with guests at the 10-day superhero events were Spider Man, Wonder Woman, Bat Man, Cat Woman in addition to Browning's Iron Man. From exciting treasure hunts and races, to delectable galas and thrilling shows, Reethi Rah entertained the guests with team-building, action-packed activities which culminated on Easter Sunday.

The key performance was, however, the sight of Browning jetting across the lagoon.
