Ubisoft to Open Malaysian Theme Park

Publishers Ubisoft have announced their plans to open a theme park based on their franchises in 2020.

The next-generation, indoor park is set to be 10,000 square metres in size and will open in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Rides and attractions will be based on popular Ubisoft franchises such as Assassin’s Creed and the Rayman spin-off Rabbids.

Jean de Rivières, senior vice president of Ubisoft Motion Pictures said: “Ubisoft’s intention for this park is to immerse people in reactive worlds where they can interact with each other and become the heroes of their own life-sized game”.

The publishers are teaming up with Malaysian theme-park developers RSG, who will own and operate the park, with Ubisoft in charge of creative decisions.

“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 Rivières.

In 2013, Ubisoft launched a dark ride based on the game Raving Rabbids: Travel in Time in French theme park Futuroscope called La Machine à Voyager dans le Temps (The Time Machine).

The ride won the “Outstanding Achievement Award” at the Themed Entertainment Association’s general assembly in 2015.

Ubisoft have fallen out with fans in the past over ‘unfinished’ releases, such as Assassin’s Creed Unity and The Crew, and this news has sparked a number of interesting reactions on Twitter.
