KUALA LUMPUR (Sept 30): Pulau Langkawi will soon see a new attraction with the opening of the Perdana Quay Eco Marine Park -- Asia’s first interactive seawater theme park, operated by Explicit Eco Marine Sdn Bhd.
With construction beginning in 2017, the privately-funded Perdana Quay Eco Marine Park will be the first phase of a proposed six-phase development project over a 10-year period which will include a hotel resort, retail outlets and more.
The 10-acre theme park will be located in Pantai Kok and scheduled to open around March 2021.
“The theme park is located just 15 minutes from the Langkawi International Airport and other tourist attractions and landmarks such as the Langkawi Cable Car and Telaga Harbour,” said Explicit Eco Marine Sdn Bhd group managing director Kelvin Foo Chian Wei at a media preview here today.
He added that the construction is about 80%-90% done and it is expected to be completed by end of the year.
Meanwhile, according to Foo, the construction cost of Perdana Quay Eco Marine Park is expected to be over RM50 million upon completion.
“We are extra vigilant of launching the theme park in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. We will also factor in the status of the outbreak with regards to the actual opening date.
“Nevertheless, the management will comply with proper SOPs and crowd control measures should we open by March next year,” said Foo, adding that entry passes are expected to be priced from RM85 for children and RM98 for adults.
Visitors will be able to interact directly with a host of diverse marine species in seawater pools. Other attractions and amenities include a 15,000 sq ft duty-free shopping centre, artificial beach, infinity pool, touch pool, snorkelling pool, retail shops, seafood restaurants and more.
