THE Movie Animation Park Studios (MAPS) in Meru Raya, Ipoh will open before the middle of the year.
Perak Development Corporation (PKNP) chief executive officer Datuk Aminuddin Md Desa said MAPS was currently in its final stage of completion.
“MAPS will undergo a thorough testing and a safety trial run to ensure it achieves international safety standard.
“The theme park has about 40 attractions in six themed zones with numerous unique and fun rides,” he said in a statement.
Aminuddin was responding to Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abd Kadir’s directive that the people needed an update on the theme park project.
After chairing the executive council meeting earlier this month, Dr Zambry said the public deserved to know the progress of the highly anticipated theme park and that the people had taken their grouses to social media, questioning the park’s opening date and credibility.
Aminuddin said PKNP embarked on the project as a catalyst for further growth of the state’s tourism industry.
“We will ensure this project will be successful to achieve the desired objectives,” he said, adding that the annual pass would be valid for a year from the opening date.
