Resorts World Genting expects 300,000 annual Indian visitors by 2020 after redevelopment

As part of the Genting Integrated Tourism Plan, Malaysia-based Resorts World Genting has invested RM 10.38 billion for redeveloping the integrated resort to create more innovative attractions, refurbished hotels and activities for the travellers. Moving towards the completion of the construction, the renewed mountaintop destination will open its indoor theme park - SkyTropolis in February 2018. On the other hand, the outdoor theme park which was closed in 2013 is scheduled to open its doors again in 2018 with the world’s first Twentieth Century Fox World theme park and is due to be operational in late 2018.

Ajay Sharma, Country Manager - India, Resorts World Genting, said before the closure of the theme park the resort welcomes over 250,000 visitors staying overnight from India. With the arrival of all newest attractions beginning 2018, the package will include a three-night stay from the current two nights. Speaking to TravelBiz Monitor, Sharma said, “As we are expecting to push the number of overall visitors to 30 million by 2020, and India being among our top 4 markets in terms of foreign arrivals, we are expecting around 300,000 visitors from India as staying guest.” The percentage of Indian visitors is expected to gradually increase after the opening of the Twentieth Century Fox World theme park.

The revamped resort will offer additional hotels, new-concept lifestyle mall, new cable car system with glass floor - SkyCasino, and debut of Burger & Lobster as part of the unveiling of SkyAvenue. The much anticipated Twentieth Century Fox World Theme Park will boast 25 rides and attractions, based on top-grosser Hollywood movies such as Rio, Ice Age, Alien Vs Predator and many more.
