A theme or amusement park should be part of any trip aboard as it is out-of-the-ordinary entertainment where family and friends can share many care-free moments together.
Malaysia is in the lead with theme parks in Asia, and will soon be launching another ten. We’ve taken a peek at them and think you should start booking your flight to Malaysia!
1# 20th Century Fox World Genting, Pahang
The world’s sole movie-inspired theme park will give you rib-tickling fun side-by-side beloved characters from legendary 20th Century Fox movies and cartoons such as ‘Ice Age’, ‘Life of Pi’, ‘Alien vs. Predator’ and ‘Night at the Museum’. You’ll feel like you’re in one gigantic movie theatre.
2# Upin and Ipin Theme Park, Sepang
Upin and Ipin, those lovable cartoon animations from Disney Channel Asia, are the main theme at this theme park with its more Malaysia-influenced setting.
3# Ubisoft Theme Park, Kuala Lumpur
If you love video games, this is where you belong. The video games giant Ubisoft is creating a RPG-simulation theme park which you navigate through as one of the famous characters in their video games, such as Assassin’s Creed and Tom Clancy’s The Division.
4# Movie Animation Park Studio (MAPS), Ipoh
You’ll spend all day at Asia’s first animation theme park, which will offer over 40 lively attractions divided into six zones: Animation Square, DreamWorks, Smurf, Stunt Legends, Boboiboy and Megamind.
