A new indoor theme park – said to be the largest in Malaysia – has opened within the upcoming Capital City shopping and entertainment hub in Johor Bahru.

The park concept features three main zones, including Music Planet, which developer Capital World believes is the first in Asia to combine an indoor circus with theatrical and musical performance spaces.

In addition, Movie Planet will feature 10 main attractions, with themes including Dinosaur World, Hollywood Stars, Haunted House and Pink Valentine. Visitors will also get a sense of being in the featured movies through augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) technology.

Also utilising AR and VR technology is Cartoon Planet, which aims to bring “classic cartoon characters” to life through its child-friendly attractions.

Upon completion later in the year, the Capital City integrated project is expected to also feature a shopping mall, the 315-room Hilton Garden Inn, 630 units of hotel-style serviced suites and 690 units of serviced apartments.
