After all that drama, we can be relieved and excited to know that Genting Highlands is undergoing construction nonetheless!
Just last year, we saw Genting Malaysia Bhd suing Disney and Fox for more than RM4.2 billion after they backed out at the last minute in the middle of the 20th Century fox Theme Park’s construction. Following that, many Malaysians (and neighbours alike) were saddened by the fact that we may never get to experience the most anticipated theme park to date in Malaysia.
In other words, our childhood dreams have been crushed!
However, it looks like our woes have been heard because Genting is planning to open its theme park in January 2020 without the involvement of a third party. Yas, this means they will still continue with the park’s construction!
It has been said that the construction of Resorts World Genting outdoor theme park, which was currently stalled, could be completed by end-2020 or 2021.
According to Genting’s chairman and CEO Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay, the theme park is still part of their plan and everything that’s needed to open it are “all in place”, reported The Edge Markets.
One more thing! Rumour has it that several big names like Universal and Six Flags are interested in picking up the construction project of the theme park but Genting has yet to confirm that information.
Check out the current progress as of late!

As of now, no further details about the park was revealed but its plans to open in January 2019 still remains. Keep your eyes peeled for further updates on the park!
We are definitely excited that the theme park’s construction will continue to be completed as we look forward to experiencing its amenities in the near future. What are some of the features you expect to see in this theme park?
