Head of Business Operations and Strategies Genting Malaysia Berhad Lee Thiam Kit in a statement said the company is ready to reveal our theme park to the world, starting with a soft opening on 8 February 2022.
“Built with an investment of over USD$800 million, this game-changing new themed attraction will put Malaysia and Pahang on the world tourism map. This theme park will contribute to the tourism sector and the economy with the creation of over a thousand jobs,” he said.
After purchasing tickets online, guests are encouraged to download the Genting SkyWorlds Theme Park mobile app, which is available for free on Google Play, Apple App Store and Huawei AppGallery.
Not only is the app a comprehensive guide to Genting SkyWorlds with real-time information, but it also enables guests to navigate and experience the park virtually prior to arrival, giving a head-start on what to do, where to go and how to get there.
Among other features, guests will be able to check wait times for rides, attractions and shows; receive promotional offers and discount vouchers; discover dining, shopping, games, and our advanced Photo+ service.
On his part, Vice President, Head – Theme Park Operations, Resorts World Genting Greg Pearn said that the first for a Southeast Asia region, the app is also integrated with the park’s Virtual Queue (VQ) technology, an intelligent feature that will reduce long waits in physical lines, giving guests more freedom to do what they want and at a time they choose.
“Genting SkyWorlds VQ also allows guests to create boarding groups for multiple ticket holders, view recommended itineraries based on personal preferences, and receive real-time alerts for attraction reservations, availability, and must-see entertainment,” he said.
“During the soft opening period, Genting SkyWorlds will be offering a 20% discount on ticket prices whilst some attractions undergo the final commissioning process and remain unavailable to guests. Opening a theme park during the pandemic has been a challenge, and whilst every effort has been made to ensure our full offerings are available, a small selection of attractions requires a little more time to be completed, something the team is working hard to achieve,” he added.
Built across 26 acres at an elevation of 6,000 feet above sea level, Genting SkyWorlds Theme Park will take guests on a sky-high adventure through nine movies and adventure inspired ‘worlds’, incorporating original Intellectual Properties (IPs), as well as movie-themed fun and excitement across its world-class rides and attractions. Genting SkyWorlds has also released a behind-the-scenes video with an overview of the theme park.
