New Theme Parks in Malaysia

Malaysia New Theme Parks
There are quite a number of new theme parks in Malaysia that are being developed or even opening, and this seems to be the biggest tourism trend in the country.

Recently in the last few years, a number of theme parks have already opened around the country and a very fast pace, which is now making Malaysia the theme park capital of Southeast Asia.

We came out with a list of Theme Parks in Malaysia which comes with relevant information and is suitable for those traveling with kids or family travel in and around Malaysia.

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.

Thanks for the comments. Yes, with our super humid weather, water parks seem to be the popular ones.

But overall, it's great to know that so many parks are opening in the next few years.

I'm really looking forward to exploring Jurassic Park Melaka when it opens. Our family has already been to Phuket FantaSea Thai cultural theme park, our first visit to Asia based theme park. The children loved the elephants, the show was amazing with lots of special effects. The place is suitable for families with many facilities to suit the family needs. And children below 100cm go free. Don't miss it if you happen to be in Phuket!

Thanks Mark, there are also a number of others opening in 2015/2017. I too look forward to these parks and wonder how they are going to compete with each other.

Also, I removed postings here with links-backs, just so you know.
