Datuk Seth Yap, executive director of M101’s parent company Meridian Bhd, had this to say:
“By signing the agreement, we will be partnering with Hasbro to develop the world’s first Hasbro-themed water theme park, which is to be an iconic branded attraction that will be an essential anchor at the heart of the MTC master plan. The water park will be 20 acres in size, offering a wide range of branded new rides that are not available in other parks of the world.
We will try to keep the theme park within a budget of less than U$20 million instead of a few hundred million. But it will be a very unique theme park that offers an enjoyable Hasbro brand experience to the visitors.”
This Hasbro-themed water park is part of the first phase of development in the MTC (including an adventure park and weekend market), which is projected to kick off in late 2019, giving them plenty of time to finish the water park by the target opening year of 2022.
