After nearly three years since it began construction, Asia’s first animation theme park, the Movie Animation Park Studios (MAPS) finally opened to the public on June 26 where it welcomed over 40,000 guests during its first week.
The highly-anticipated park was experienced by many animation fans who travelled from faraway places just to enjoy MAPS’s unique attractions such as the world’s first Home of BoBoiBoy’s 4D adventure, South East Asia’s first bike and car stunt show and Asia’s first Smurfs Theatre. Several rides such as Hyperspin, Asteroid Attack, Space X-Plorer and Bumper Blast were among the few rides opened to the public.
Their first week opening also received VIP guests including Menteri Besar Perak, Dato’ Seri DiRaja Dr Zambry Abd Kadir who thanked the public for its continuous support, “Whilst some parts of MAPS is still undergoing technical rehearsals, it has admitted almost 20,000 guests within five days of its opening; I can only thank everyone for their strong support,” said Zambry during his visit.
With only the Dreamzone section currently undergoing minor rehearsal, the public can already visit the park and enjoy over 40 attractions in six themed zones. For the latest price on MAPS tickets, readers can visit www.mapsperak.com.
