New Theme Parks in Malaysia

Malaysia New Theme Parks

New Theme Parks in Malaysia that are being developed or up and coming seem to be the tourism trend in the country. Recently in the last few years, a number of theme parks have opened around the country and a very fast pace. There is also a list of Theme Parks in Malaysia which we covered earlier this year for those traveling with kids or family travel in Malaysia. 

In June this year, I was browsing through some articles and found out that there are even more theme parks opening in 2013 and 2014 and with this, Malaysia would be well known as a Theme Park country. With the announcement of Visit Malaysia Year 2014, those parks that open by next year will hopefully see good profits with huge numbers of tourist coming in.

Update November 2015 - The all new 20th Century Fox World Genting Theme Park is set to open in late 2016 or early 2017. Plus there are a number of other new theme parks being developed which are not in this list as I will be updating it once I get more information.

There are a lot of speculation and concerns about the actual opening dates at the moment but some of the parks are currently being constructed. However, you should expect delays in some of the parks opening dates as they can be delayed. We at Malaysia Asia will do our best to keep you updated on any progress and changes if there are any. You are also free to leave a comment if you hear any news about this. 

With these new massive projects, you can be sure that at any state in Malaysia, you will be able to visit at least one themed park. Tourism has been the main attraction for the country and therefore with the current good economy ongoing, we should also see many more unique hotels and resorts being built alongside these new theme parks in Malaysia.
