Sunway Lagoon, Resorts World Genting and Legoland Malaysia are three of the most visited theme parks in the country. The list just doesn’t end there – Twentieth Century Fox has announced to open the brand’s first ever theme park in 2016. It would be a part of the popular Resorts World Genting located an hour away from the country’s capital, Kuala Lumpur.
Named the “Twentieth Century Fox World,” the 25-acre theme park will feature a full-fledged immersive entertainment experience to all visitors of all ages. Highlights of the park includes FOX’s most powerful and recognized film brands such as Ice Age, Rio, Planet of the Apes and Night at the Museum. With the drastic growing demand of theme parks with a movie-fantasy appeal along with Universal Studios and Disney, this theme park by FOX studios has been a long time coming.
