Having been to many events and launching over the years, I have to take my hat off to the people at Resorts World for organizing such a simple and straightforward event launching. 

There was no protocol and time wasting. The event was to be launched at 12 noon, and it all went smoothly like clockwork, and by 12.05 PM, the guests were already in the store.

How to go to 20th Century Fox World Studio Store in Genting Malaysia?

Generally, there are two main ways to get to Resorts World Genting. By road via car or bus, or by the new and modern cable car system called Awana Skyway

If you take the Awana Skyway, it will lead you directly into the 4th floor of SkyAvenue Genting. From there, you need to take the escalator down two levels to 20th Century Fox World Studio Store.

Well, the big question still remains - When is the 20th Century Fox World Theme Park opening? As I spoke briefly to Brian Machamer, the senior vice-president of RWG Theme Parks, he clearly stated that there is no official announcement. 

Brian also claimed that in the international standards, a world class theme park takes around 4-5 years to complete.

The news came out in 2013 about the new theme park in Genting, and the time line is in-accordance with the standards.

The good news is that the new Genting theme park will see its doors open by end of 2018 or early 2019, if everything goes according to plan. For further reading, I created an interesting list of 10 facts about 20th Century Fox World Theme Park

For anyone who is visiting Resorts World Genting, you still have the opportunity to visit the 20th Century Fox World Studio Store at SkyAvenue, which opened on 21st April 2018. And while you are here, do take the opportunity to look around as you never know what you may end up getting.
