After a very long delay, the long-awaited Genting Skyworlds finally opened its doors to the public on 8 February, 2022.
With an investment of over USD $800 million, Genting SkyWorlds takes guests on an adventure like no other.
Built across 26 acres at an elevation of 6,000 feet above sea level, the theme park includes nine unique movie and adventure-inspired worlds with 26 rides and attractions — Studio Plaza, Eagle Mountain, Liberty Lane, Andromeda Base, Rio, Epic, Ice Age, Robots Rivet Town and Central Park.
Here’s what we know so far about the opening of Genting Skyworlds:
Some attractions are currently undergoing the final commissioning process during the soft opening and remain unavailable to the guests.
Plus, the opening is in accordance with current SOPs and with enhanced health and safety measures. According to the website, Genting SkyWorlds is operating at a reduced capacity, so guests are advised to purchase tickets online in advance of their visit.
Additionally, certain rides, attractions, entertainment, restaurants, or other offerings may be unavailable, modified or are operating at reduced capacity. Guests are also advised to use their bank cards or e-wallets for contactless payments, practice social distancing at all times, and always wear a face mask.
“Opening a theme park during the pandemic has been a challenge, and whilst every effort has been made to ensure our full offerings are available, a small selection of attractions require a little more time to be complete, something the team is working hard to achieve,” said Greg Pearn, Vice President, Head – Theme Park Operations, Resorts World Genting.
To commemorate the soft opening, Genting SkyWorlds is also offering a 20% discount on its published rates to book from 8 February to 31 March, 2022. Tickets are priced at RM151 or SGD 45 for adults (OP: RM189 or SGD 57) and RM128 or SGD 38 (OP: RM161 or SGD 48) for children and senior citizens, while toddlers enter for free.
Guests are also encouraged to download the Genting SkyWorlds Theme Park mobile app to treat it as a comprehensive guide with real-time information. Not only that, guests will be able to check wait times for rides, attractions and shows along with exciting promotional offers. Before visiting, guests can virtually navigate the park, giving them a head start to plan out their day.
The mobile app is also integrated with Southeast Asia’s first Virtual Queue (VQ) technology to diminish the long wait in physical lines, giving guests the freedom to do what they want at a preferred time with ease. Thanks to the VQ, guests can create boarding groups for multiple ticket holders, view recommended itineraries based on personal preferences and receive real-time alerts for attraction reservations and availability.
A complimentary Virtual Queue (VQ) and Photo+ access will be available during the soft opening period, where guests can download and share unlimited digital photo content.
