If you want to pakour like in Assassin’s Creed, rave like Rabbids or just dance like … Just Dance in real life, your chance in coming soon – Ubisoft is developing a “next-generation” theme park in Kuala Lumpur.
In a project led by Ubisoft Motion Pictures, the company is partnering with RSG, co-owner and co-developer of Movie Animation Park Studios (MAPS).
“Together we are creating a place where every guest is a player, every ride is a playground, every visit is a game,” said Jean de Rivières, senior vice president, Ubisoft Motion Pictures. “In RSG, we’ve found a partner with a successful track record in working with international brands, a shared ambition to design the family destination of the future, and a wealth of expertise in theme park development.” said Jean de Rivières.
Ubisoft Motion Pictures launched the award-winning Rabbids Dark Ride at French park Futuroscope in 2013.
The planned 10,000 square meter development will be located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, and will feature rides, attractions and shows inspired by some of Ubisoft’s franchises, such as Assassin’s Creed, Just Dance and Rabbids. The park will open in 2020, said Ubisoft.
“RSG is committed to redefining family fun, and video games have taken an increasingly central role in entertainment for all ages,” said Ramelle Ramli, Chairman, RSG. “Partnering with Ubisoft means we’ll work with their creative teams to develop the first of what we believe will be a revolutionary new theme park experience. We are confident that this partnership agreement highly benefits both parties and consolidates our presence in the global family entertainment market.”
