ASIA’S FIRST ANIMATION THEME PARK OPENING SOON

Fantasy Forest

Movie Animation Park Studios (MAPS), Asia’s first animation theme park located in Ipoh, Perak is at the tail end of its development, with 96 percent completed.

In an exclusive session, MAPS Board of Director, Mr. Ramelle Ramli notes that the Park is estimated to be ready by 26 June 2017.

“MAPS is highly anticipated and we acknowledge that there have been shortcomings to the development. I assure the public that it is a result of the decision to enhance the Park, increasing the entertainment value upon opening. This was announced to the public last year by the Perbadanan Kemajuan Negeri Perak (PKNP),” explained Ramelle.

The Home of BoBoiBoy

MAPS which houses both international and homegrown Intellectual Properties (IPs) including DreamWorks characters, The Smurfs and The Home of BoBoiBoy will have more than 40 attractions in six themed zones.

Gearing up for excitement, visitors will be able to enjoy the experience of additional attractions include the HyperSpin, Asteroid Attack, The Adventurous Cartoon Factory, The Smurfs (Live Attraction, Party Land and The Smurfs Club House), WormHole Technologies, International Cultural Celebration, Selfie Boardwalk, Photo-Op.

Addressing current pass holders, Ramelle thanks them for their patience and understanding. Those who have purchased the tickets earlier can be assured that validity will commence upon the opening and is applicable for the 12 months after for Annual and Perak Passes. For Single Day Passes, it is valid for three months after opening.

Upon opening, MAPS is estimated to attract 1 million visitors to the theme park. With the anticipated visitor volume, the theme park will act as a catalyst for the State’s tourism industry and economy. Currently, MAPS employs approximately 500 employees, of which 73 percent of its human resources are local Perakians.

“Our recruitment focuses on Perakians, although we do have staff from other states. Our intentions are not only in providing employment to the locals but also to groom the talents’ skill sets of an international standard theme park,” said Ramelle.

MAPS is also currently on an active campaign to boost the tourism industry of Perak. Plans in the pipeline include strong presence in regional travel fairs, trade exhibitions and sales missions.

The theme park will also engage its audience in an interactive marketing campaign for both Above and Below the Line strategy which includes media outlets such as radio, television broadcast and attractive billboards. Merchandises will also soon be available for purchase on MAPS social media channels including Facebook and Instagram.
