Movie Animation Park Studio Ipoh (Permanently Closed)
Updated: Feb 24
Update: Permanently Closed since 2020
Ipoh is known for food and the hills, not so much on theme parks (except perhaps the Sunway Lost World of Tambun) . Not until recently, when Movie Animation Park Studios (MAPS) had their soft launch on 26th June 2017, now Ipoh can boast that it has 2 theme parks and Ipoh as a tour destination, can be very favourable for family with kids.
MAPS is situated slightly outskirt of Ipoh, It is about 20 minutes drive from Ipoh city centre and it is actually right next to Aman Jaya Bus Terminal (The central bus station of Ipoh ) . The whole theme park cost RM520 million (S$168 million) and construction started 3 years ago in 2014;
Since this is a soft launch where not all facilities are operational, the prices are promotional now and you can refer to their official website for more info.
It is the first animation-centred theme park in not just Malaysia, but also throughout Asia. The size of the theme park is 8 hectares , slightly less than half the size of Universal Studio Singapore.
