State Tourism, Culture, Arts and Heritage Committee chairman Danny Law Heng Kiang said that a local firm had submitted the proposal to build the family theme park on a two-hectare site located near Auto-City in Juru.

"The proposal seems quite acceptable but we will still need to vet it through the state Economic Planning Unit, the Environmental Department and local council before making a decision," he said.

"It would be a medium-scale theme park situated next to the Prai river and it would have fun rides, outdoor activities, a hawker centre and a water-theme park.

"There is a possibility that the park will be expanded to four hectares if things go well," he added.
