Movie Animation Park Studios MAPS 

Movie Animation Park Studios or MAPS Ipoh is a new addition to Malaysia’s growing list of theme parks. It is said to be Asia’s first animation theme park and is located in Ipoh, Perak. It features Malaysian animated characters like BoBoiBoy as well as international characters such as Casper the Friendly Ghost, The Croods, Megamind, the Smurfs and Mr. Peabody & Sherman.

The park soft-opened in June 2017. One of the park’s 6 themed zones, the Dream Zone, is still undergoing testing and is not yet open to the public. Expected completion is late 2017.

 2019 Ticket Prices

The standard admission charges were initially set too high. Perhaps the owners were in a hurry to recoup the RM 520 million which they have reportedly invested to build the park.

Prices have since been significantly reduced and the following online day passes are available:

  • Adult RM 70 (ages 13 - 59)
  • Child RM 70 (ages 4 - 12)
  • Senior RM 70 (ages 60 and above)
  • Evening Pass (5pm - 10pm) RM 35

Various promo rates are offered and you can see all the current ticket prices and buy online tickets on the MAPS official website.

Opening Hours

Monday - Friday: 10 am - 6 pm (except Wednesday). 

Saturday, Sunday, Public Holiday & School Holiday: 10 am to 10 pm.
