Resorts World Genting announces plans for first international Twentieth Century Fox theme park

Resorts World Genting and Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products have announced a licensing partnership to develop the first international Twentieth Century Fox theme park.

Planned to open in 2016 at the existing Resorts World Genting, Malaysia, the park will give visitors the chance to experience some of Fox’s most powerful film brands including Ice Age, Rio, Alien and Night at the Museum.

The park will cover more than 25 acres of land and is to feature more than 25 attractions including thrill, water and media-based rides as well as rides for children. The rides’ themes will centre around Fox’s properties covering action, adventure, animation, family and sci-fi genres.

Resorts World Genting will invest more than RM 400m (US$124m, £81m) to develop the park, creating new jobs in the process.

“For the first time, audiences will soon be transported into the worlds of their favourite Twentieth Century Fox properties,” said Jeffrey Godsick, president of Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products. “Brought to life by our partner Resorts World Genting, this theme park marks the launch of our global location-based entertainment strategy.”

The original Genting Theme Park opened in 1978 and has recorded more than 20 million visitors annually in the last two years and remains a major tourist destination in Malaysia. Resorts World Genting offers six hotels including one of the world’s largest, the First World Hotel.

Given that the Twentieth Century Fox theme park plans to target both adults and families, the Resort predicts strong growth in domestic, neighbouring and international visitor numbers.

The Genting Outdoor Theme Park will be closed from September 1st 2013 to allow for construction of the new Twentieth Century Fox theme park.
