Frontgrid Ltd. is proud to announce that ParadropVR will soon be available to visitors at Resorts World Genting, in Malaysia’s Genting Highlands, in a first for the country. The immersive attraction will be coming to the 400,000 square foot indoor entertainment space, in the Genting Highlands Resort.

ParadropVR is a unique and innovative attraction, which lets guests enjoy a realistic paragliding experience. Resorts World Genting is home to Sky VR, which showcases the newest and most exciting VR experiences from around the globe. It features five cutting-edge VR attractions, including physical rides.

ParadropVR has been picked up by a wide range of brands and attractions around the globe, including Merlin Entertainments, King Power, Emaar Entertainments and iFLY. This latest location, Resorts World Genting, is estimated to attract more than 7,000 visitors per day, once it is open for business.

The ParadropVR installation will be branded SkyGlider VR. This is in keeping with the existing branding at the park.

To be chosen as one of the world’s top immersive experiences is a real honour and reflects the confidence leading entertainment brands have in our product.”
