20th Century Fox World is an upcoming movie inspired theme park currently under construction in Genting Highlands (Resorts World Genting), Malaysia. The park will become the first 20th Century Fox theme park in the world upon its expected completion and opening in 2017.

History[edit]

The previous name of 20th Century Fox World is the Genting Outdoor Theme Park.

Development history[edit]

20th Century Fox World was first announced on 26 July 2013.[1][2]

Park design[edit]

The park will be 25 acres in size and will feature roughly 25 thrill rides and attractions based on films and franchises like Rio, Ice Age, Life of Pi, Night at the Museum, Planet of the Apes, Alien vs. Predator and Titanic.[1][2][3]

Competition[edit]

Another Malaysian movie-based park, the upcoming MAPS Perak (Movie Animation Park Studio of Perak) will not pose any major competition to 20th Century Fox World due to the convenience and strategic location of Genting Highlands.
