On top of Legoland Malaysia (pictured) and Puteri Harbour Family Theme Park, Iskandar Malaysia is looking to accommodate up to six international theme parks in the next three years, said Iskandar Regional Development Authority (IRDA). 

“We are currently in talks with several international theme park companies and we will be making the announcement at the appropriate time,” noted Datuk Ismail Ibrahim, Chief Executive of IRDA.

“We are not in the position to reveal the names yet as they are still under discussions.”

Come May, the launch of Pinewood Studios in Medini will further boost the region’s attractiveness to international investors, especially those from the creative industry.

“Pinewood Iskandar Malaysia Studios will provide full-fledged facilities and support services for film production.”

“Apart from the development infrastructure, IRDA and Pinewood Iskandar are jointly conducting training for film production professionals to meet the requirements of the studio’s clients,” added Datuk Ismail who spoke to Bernama.
