Resorts World Genting’s (RWG) movie-inspired theme park Genting Skyworlds is due to start welcoming guests for the first time in the second quarter of 2021.

The theme park will feature nine movie and adventure inspired worlds for visitors to immerse themselves in, including Robots Rivet Town, Liberty Lane, Eagle Mountain, Central Park, Ice Age, Epic, Rio, Studio Plaza, and Andromeda Base.

According to Lee Thiam Kit, head of business operations and strategy at RWG, the group is committed to opening the theme park in 2021, despite the ongoing challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Since its conception, RWG has invested RM3.2 billion (US$800 million) into Genting SkyWorlds, which it believes will become a valuable part of the Malaysian economy and its tourism industry.

“We’re committed to this park and we will see to it that it opens, barring unforeseen circumstances,” said Lee Thiam Kit.

“Going forward, when we open, there will be jobs created and the park will add economic activity directly and indirectly as well as a boost to tourism in Malaysian and Pahang,” he added.
