    The theme park started driving sales in the Travel Malaysia Fair 2017 being held in Singapore. However, some agents are still doubtful on the park's opening date in June.

    MAPs will generate interest at the travel fair by offering freebies and having The Smurfs cartoon characters, Papa Smurf and Smurfette, greet visitors.
    The launch of the attraction had been plagued by numerous delays. It was supposed to open in 1H2016 but was delayed to early 2017. And after months of silence surrounding the project, local publicity kicked off with a media site inspection on April 21. In Malaysia, some agents remain uncertain about the attraction's opening dates and saleability.

    I found the source of those photos but still can't find the date mentioned anywhere. These were posted on 29th March and there is a lot of conversation on the thread about "issues" and "delays" but the translation is terrible. If anyone can make sense of it then let us know.

    Looking at their replies on Facebook, there is no mention of park opening in Q2 lately.

    Back in Feb and early March, the Facebook admin was very gungho to announce that the MAPS management has announced that the park is going to open by end Q2. But now they have grown quiet.

    I dont think they can open by then as there seem to be no open recruitment lately for their park crews and staffs. The last invite was back in Nov 2016. Prior to this, they had one recruitment drive in March 2016 and at that time they were saying they would open in July 2016.

    So if we go by the Nov 2016 recruitment drive, they may have thought the park would open in March 2017. They have missed it again and so far no recruitment drive. Giving a 4 months buffer for recruitment until the park opens, now it's already 1st week of April, that would make the next possible opening date in August 2017 provided they start recruiting within this month.

    These images are from December 2016 but they give the best images I have seen so far of the site on a big scale. It looks more impressive than I was expecting but about as complete as I could hope....

    MAPS to open in Q2 of this year according to Perak State Development Corp.

    The much awaited Movie Animation Park Studios (MAPS) in Bandar Meru Raya, the first in Asia, will finally opened its doors in the second quarter of this year. Perak State Development Corporation (PSDC) chief executive Datuk Aminudduin Md Desa said the project is in the final stages of completion and ready for operation.
    It was supposed to kick-start in October last year but was postponed to a later date.
