Penang Govt mulling over RM30m theme park proposal

The state is studying the possibility of allowing a RM30mil theme park similar to the Genting Highlands Theme Park complete with fun rides and a water park to be set up in Seberang Prai.

State Tourism, Culture, Arts and Heritage Committee chairman Danny Law Heng Kiang said that a local firm had submitted the proposal to build the family theme park on a 2ha site located near Auto-City in Juru here.

“The proposal seems quite acceptable but we will still need to vet it through the state Economic Planning Unit, the Environmental Department and local council before making a decision,” he said after visiting the Auto-City carnival yesterday.

“It would be a medium-scale theme park situated next to the Prai river and it would have fun rides, outdoor activities, a hawker centre and a water-theme park.

“There is a possibility that the park will be expanded to 4ha if things go well,” he said, adding that the proposed site belonged to a local firm.
