RM100 million virtual reality theme park to open at Empire City, Malaysia

US VR Global Inc. is reported to be set to open one of the world’s largest virtual reality theme parks in Damansara, Malaysia.

Located at Empire City, Damansara Shopping Mall, the 170,000 square-foot Hero Central Park will have a total build cost of around RM100 million, reports FMT News.

Speaking at a press conference, CEO Mark Olivier Francq told reporters that the project would be a launchpad for his company to the emerging markets, especially in Asean, India and China.

He added that US VR Global Inc. was intending to build 20 further parks around Asia within the next three to five years.

Hero Central Park will be constructed in two phases, the first of which will cost RM70 million.

At the conference, Francq was keen to highlight the benefits of VR in terms of time-scales and value for money. He said the park could be up and running within six months as opposed to the years required to build a conventional park. He also added that the low ticket price when compared with conventional theme parks would make it appealing to all segments.
