The COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent Movement Control Order (MCO) implementation have a major impact on so many industries throughout the country including tourism. Some are able to withstand the tide but for others such as the Angry Birds Activity Park Johor Bahru, things didn’t bode too well for them.
Located at Komtar JBCC which is just across the road from Johor Bahru’s main transportation hub JB Sentral, the Angry Birds Activity Park originally opened in October 2014. Said to be the first Angry Birds theme park in Southeast Asia, it was a joint venture between a subsidiary of Johor Corporation, Damansara Assets together with the creators of Angry Birds, Rovio Entertainment.
The 26,000 square feet indoor activity park is mainly designed for children and given its name, all of the attractions within it were inspired by the acclaimed game franchise. Naturally, the park also contains a gift shop that sells official Angry Birds merchandises.
As per the announcement on its Facebook page, the Angry Birds Activity Park Johor Bahru will be closing its doors on 5 April 2021. Since Johor is still being categorised as a Conditional MCO zone, there may be not enough time for Angry Birds fans from outside the state to make their final visit to the park.
Nevertheless, those who are able to make the journey to Komtar JBCC can take advantage of the lowered admission fee for the park which is now listed as RM 35 for kids and RM 25 for adults while a family of five can pick up the family ticket for RM 140.
