    Fun fact: Andromeda Base retains about 90% of the original theming. AvP related IP was either destroyed, modified or covered over. Right where this video is taken, the oculus remains behind the tunnel, almost as it was intended, but where was this?

    “The outlook for DAL in Malaysia isn't as rosy.

    Originally scheduled to open in 2016, 20th Century Fox World was held up after Disney announced its $71.3 billion purchase of the film and television assets held by 21st Century Fox in December 2017. Even though the park was already deep into development by the time of the takeover, Disney wanted to pull its intellectual property but eventually settled with the operator, gaming giant Genting. The park's name was changed to Genting SkyWorlds and it eventually opened in February 2022 without a number of its attractions, including the two SFX Coasters. It wasn't for want of trying.

    The first of the rides is themed to the Aliens vs Predators (AVP) action movie and DAL committed to building the coaster system for a lump sum of $34 million. Recent filings by DAL reveal that it has already spent $26.4 million on the ride and "has only been paid $24,000,000." The filings add that "AVP Malaysia is not operational and would take a significant further expenditure of funds to be completed...The $10,000,000 of funds remaining to be paid by Genting on the contract would not cover those costs which are estimated to be $16,000,000. Because of the complexity of the ride system, and the design changes that would be required to make it operational, there is a risk that the client could cancel the contract and demand that the ride components installed to date be removed from the facility.

    The outlook is brighter for the second SFX Coaster at SkyWorlds which is based on the Sons of Anarchy (SOA) series about a father who balances parenting with his involvement in a motorcycle gang. DAL committed to building the coaster system for $24 million and according to the filings "the client has paid $23,000,000." They add that "SOA Malaysia is about 95% complete with a punch-list of work to get it operational and it is estimated that such work could cost an additional $1,500,000." That sounds pretty close to the budget but it's actually far from it as DAL has already spent $30.7 million on building the attraction.


    It brings the average price of these three coasters to $34.3 million with AVP being the most expensive at $42.4 million. It is worth stressing that these sums just relate to the mechanisms underlying the attractions as DAL's contracts tend to be for the ride systems only. The park operator then hires other suppliers to provide the theming and audio visual equipment.“

    Freedom Shop @ Eagle Mountain, photos were taken on (Sunday) 19th March 2023. It appears the gift exiting Mad Ramp Peak - Full Throttle Racing is nowhere near ready yet:




    On a side note, I managed to spot the "Genting" building on Independence Day: Defiance during my recent ride:

    It seems they were testing "Mad Ramp Peak - Full Throttle Racing" during my visit yesterday (3rd Feb 2023):





    On a side note, the entire park needs some major TLC - most of the facades and show buildings look mossy and dirty. One major example over at the SFX show building:

    First look at Genting SkyWorlds first ever street parade named the "Christmas Parade" specially made for Genting Winter Wonderland Specials. It's available daily at 5:15 pm and between 1.12.2022 - 1.1.2023.

    Also, I find it a bit odd that they are using characters from Genting’s Highland Heroes that were advertised for Skytropolis Indoor Theme Park - instead of SkyWorld's existing licensed IP from Ice Age, Rio, Epic etc for the "Christmas Parade". Any idea why?

    Starting at 0:13 you can hear the hissing noises due to the hydraulics coming from the animatronics. I'm slightly disappointed with how the ride turned out - the hydraulic noises definitely made the experience feels cheap/tacky in my personal opinion for a ride tied to a huge IP.

    Budget cut maybe?...

    Nevertheless, still amazed at how smooth the ride vehicle by Oceaneering though
