Genting Theme Park will be replaced by Twentieth Century Fox Theme Park

Darling, Ethan and I all have Genting’s Annual Passport but Darling’s and mine expired some time ago. We wanted to renew it but were not allowed. We were quite pissed then as Ethan’s passport is still valid and without ours, we have to fork out a large sum of money to enter the Theme Park together. I brought the matter up to the management and was told that the Theme Park will be closed sometime soon hence the no renewal of annual passport ruling.

Ethan’s Annual Passport is still valid until today but then I got to know that Genting Theme Park will be replaced by world’s FIRST Twentieth Century Fox Theme Park!

Twentieth Century Fox Studio Theme Park, Genting.

My first reaction was “Yeah man!” Imagine Ice Age, Rio, Alien vs Predator, Night at the Museum and Titanic in the new Fox Theme Park! There will also be a special attraction called ‘Dream Parade’, which features a one-of-a-kind animatronics parade based on all characters and titles represented at the theme park.

But then reality sunk in. Our favourite weekend ‘playground’ will be closed cum 1 September 2013 and the new theme park will only be reopen in 2016. That is 3 years of emptiness for Ethan and I :( What are we supposed to do during those 3 years? :'(

Ethan told me he’ll definitely be missing the Antique car and Bumper car rides but I assured him that the new theme park will be much more awesome (I hope)! He practically grew up in Genting and now… we will be ‘homeless’ for the next 3 years >_<

We are already planning a trip up there very soon before the 1 September for one final tour of Ethan’s beloved playground before they are being demolished to make way for Twentieth Century Fox Theme Park!

    OMG! So long! The one thing I don’t like about Genting is the bumper car because they don’t allow me in unless I beg them. T_______T

    I’m talking about the adult bumper car la. Min height 153. I’m 150. But actually can reach the accelerator and break. Don’t know what sort of stupid rule is that (I think I find it stupid cos they don’t allow me in! D:)

    [Reply]

    We have no reason to go Genting already when it closes for upgrading. I bet the indoor theme park will be extremely crowded then.

    It’s sad that the outdoor theme park will be closed for 3 years for revamp to be carried out but I guess it’s time for a facelift =)

    Why not we organize a trip to enjoy the outdoor theme park?
