Paramount Pictures Will Be Opening Southeast Asia’s Largest Theme Park In Bali
Even with the ongoing pandemic, it doesn’t seem to hinder Paramount Pictures from signing a deal with Indonesian company, PT Kios Ria Kreasi to work on building the largest theme park in Southeast Asia. It looks like the theme park will be located in Jembrana, Bali.
However, you might want to hold on to your money before thinking of visiting the theme park, as the soft launch is said to be slated for 2025. “The development of Paramount theme park will strengthen Bali’s position as a recreational and entertainment hub for world citizens,” said People’s Consultative Assembly (MPR) Speaker, Bambang Soesatyo. “It will also improve Bali’s economy, especially after the COVID-19 pandemic.”
Apprently, the targeted location of the theme park, the Gilimanuk-Mengwi toll road development area is strategic, as it stretched 95km, connecting the Gilimanuk port to the cities of Denpasar, Badung, Gianyar, and Tabanan. Despite the news being covered by all sorts of media, Paramount Pictures has yet to confirm anything.
However, Bali officials confirmed that the Paramount theme park will come to fruition. “Their presence in investing shows that Indonesia is very friendly to investors. It also shows that there are still many investment opportunities that investors can work on, especially in the tourism sector,” Bambang explained.
