Genting SkyWorlds opening to drive stronger visitation at RWG: Analysts

Genting Skyworlds

The opening of the new outdoor theme park Genting SkyWorlds at Resorts World Genting is expected to bring “higher than expected” visitor arrivals to the property as early as November, according to analysts at RHB Research, reported by The Star.

“We understand that the theme park is ready to commence operations anytime soon and believe it could happen in November, which will be timely to capture the pent-up demand post reopening in the run-up to the year-end holidays,” said the analysts in a report.

The firm said that following a recent visit to the property, it was encouraged by the crowd. 

The firm noted that all tables on the first floor of SkyCasino were open with around 3-7 people per table, and that there was a long line for the SkyCasino guest service counter as many were applying for new memberships due to pent up demand. 

They also witnessed decent footfall at the SkyAvenue mall. Though the numbers have not yet reached pre-pandemic levels with some facilities still closed.

After closing on June 1, 2021 to help fight the spread of Covid-19, Resorts World Genting reopened months later on a limited basis on Sept. 30. As Malaysia’s vaccination rates continue to climb, more visitors are expected to be able to visit the entertainment hot spot.
