The pandemic continues to delay the opening of Genting SkyWorlds, as Malaysia remains under a lockdown. However, the park just released a summary of the themed lands and attractions that it has been introducing through its social media over the past months.
The park, which is part of the Resorts World Genting complex, also released a new teaser video. The fact that struck me is that Genting SkyWorlds really will feel like it is located in the sky. Built atop a mountain at 6,000 feet elevation, Genting SkyWorlds will be one of the highest theme parks in the world. Having lived in Denver (5,280 feet elevation), I can promise you that walking around all day at altitude is no joke for anyone not used to the thin air. Time to start training!
As for what the park will have to offer, its entry area will be Studio Plaza, the first of nine themed lands in the park. The other lands and their attractions will be:
Robots Rivet Town
"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," Head of Theme Parks & Experiences at Resorts World Genting Greg Pearn said. "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!"

/\ I'm assuming this park is like Universal Studios Singapore where its basically a big wienie to lure people into the casino where the real $ is made.

Meh...Looks like a lot of the copycat Asian theme parks not owned or backed by Disney/Universal. Could Mad Ramp Peak look any more like Radiator Springs Racers (they even admit it's inspired by the California landscape)?
I wish these guys luck, because success here will spur expansion and further theme park investment elsewhere around the world. However, given all the delays, IP issues, and overall problems with this concept, I don't expect this to last very long. The statements in the video from Mr. Holloway, Mr. Kit, and Mr. Pearn are almost identical to what the creative team behind Hard Rock Park said, and we all know how that story ended.
