Resorts World Genting unveils lands and rides at SkyWorlds attraction

Resorts World Genting unveils lands and rides at SkyWorlds attraction
August 20, 2021

Resorts World Genting has unveiled the themed worlds, rides and attractions that are set to open at its new Genting SkyWorlds theme park in Malaysia.

The Genting SkyWorlds theme park at Resorts World Genting (RWG) in Malaysia’s highland will boast nine themed lands inspired by original intellectual properties as well as 20th Century Studios brands.

These include Ice Age, Rio, Epic, Robots, Night at the Museum, Independence Day and Planet of the Apes.

The opening date for the much-delayed theme park is still uncertain, with some media reports suggesting it will be in December this year.

However, as Greg Pearn, Head of Theme Parks and Experiences at RWG, explains “right now, our priority is ensuring we play our part in safeguarding the health and safety of our employees and guests, even if that means delaying the opening for a short while.

“Myself and the team are confident the good times aren’t too far away and we can look up to brighter days when we open the gates to our incredible theme park and present the unique, fun and amazing adventures Genting SkyWorlds has to offer.

“What we have created is extraordinary and definitely going to be worth the wait!”

The visitor experience begins at Studio Plaza, inspired by Hollywood’s ‘Golden Age’, while other attractions/themed lands include:

Eagle Mountain a Californian desert themed land and home to the world’s first dual-powered coaster bike ride, Mad Ramp Peak  Full Throttle Racing.

Central Park, the largest land at Genting SkyWorlds, features major rides including Night at the Museum: Midnight Mayhem, a 3D interactive ride, ESD Global Defender, an aerospace fighter ride, and Independence Day: Defiance.

The ‘Santa Teresa’ neighbourhood at Rio, which includes the double-decker Blue Sky Carousel, Rio Carnaval Chaos teacup ride, and Samba Gliders.

Ice Age features the Ice Age: Expedition Thin Ice ride, the Scrat on Acorn Adventure rollercoaster, Sid’s Rock N Slide log ride and the Mammoth Fun Zone.

Epic is a whimsical world featuring the Epic Voyage to Moonhaven boat ride and the Epic Hummingbird Flyers.

Robots Rivet Town features Bigweld’s Zeppelins offering panoramic views and a capsule ride called Rivet Town Roller.
