In the heat of exciting movie theme parks opening around the world, one mammoth opening is about to happen across the border from us.

Movie Animation Park Studios (MAPS) is an exclusively cartoon-themed amusement park that will soon be opening in Ipoh, Perak, Malaysia, and will feature rides modelled after animations like Megamind, The Croods and Mr Peabody and Sherman.

90s kids will get a kick out of two particular attractions: Casper‘s Birthday Blast and the Smurftastic Live Show. The film animation-themed rides will be located in a section called the “Dream Zone”.

There will also be a “Blast Off Zone”, a “dining and retail experience designed for space enthusiasts”, and a “Fantasy Forest Zone” where visitors can have “enchanted adventures”. It is not confirmed if these other zones will eventually adopt the theme of other famous animations.

There is currently no updated opening date, although the park is expected to be open sometime this year.
