Everything is already there in Genting Highlands in terms of infrastructure (hotels, theme park); this sounds like a complete refurb.

I remember this was announced back in 2014 or 15, and we were in Singapore at the end of 2015 into 2016 and was hoping to get up to KL.  First Born got Dengue and got stuck in hospital for a week which put paid to any ideas about seeing if this was going anywhere.

Glad to see this is still happening. I'm a tiny bit disappointed it's looking like a traditional attraction - mostly because I hate rollercoasters and stuff - was hoping it'd be some sort of interactive thing.

Agreed, really hope it's not just traditional coasters and other such thrill rides with logos stamped on. They really should have some kind of dark ride with animatronic characters.

Looks like the Fox World Store is already open at RWG, you can see some Alien and Predator merchandise, other than the NECA toys, I can't say I've seen those items anywhere else.

Definitely going to snag me an AVPR shot glass should I ever make my way out there.

Seen here at 0:31

Not surprising News.

Theme parks based on intellectual property and corporate strategy is high risk, low yield exercises. Get the balance right and you'd be raking in Millions per day (as Disney's heyday attested). Get the mix wrong and you can bankrupt the parent company and devalue the brand (as Paramount land attested).

Look at the YouTuber who did the "Defunctland" video series (who started by reviewing retro, commercially successful rides), but then went onto post mortems of failed expansions and lost millions- or theme park park closures.

As much as I love Xenomorphs and Predators- I wouldn't bank on a million dollar theme park.

An ALIEN- WAR like they had at the Trocadero London in the early 90s is more suited.

An Alien part of a theme park would be so fun!
Would be so cool to recreate the Nostromo that you can walk around.

I would give my left nut for a an Alien and Predator themed park. Especially since here in FL the alien is gone and so is The Great Movie ride...  :(

I live about 20 miles away from it.  Never even knew it existed before now.
