IIB President and Chief Executive Officer Datuk Syed Mohamed Syed Ibrahim said the park’s investors will make an announcement in three to six months.

“The third theme park is oriented towards young adults and children,” he told reporters at the Raffles American School groundbreaking at Educity, Nusajaya here today, without disclosing the park’s location, construction cost or investors.
On Dec 27 last year, Bernama reported from Jakarta that Indonesian theme park developer PT Pembangunan Jaya Ancol was planning to expand to Iskandar Malaysia.
According to its director Winarto, the company had been invited by the Malaysian government to open a theme park in Iskandar Malaysia and was scouting a suitable location.
The project would be in collaboration with the local authority with Khazanah Nasional as the intermediary, Winarto said, adding the park would be on a 50 ha. piece of land with construction expected to begin in 2013.
The RM750 million Legoland Malaysia, which opened on Sept 15, 2012, has attracted 250,000 visitors, and targets one million visitors in its first year of operations.
The RM110 million Puteri Harbour opened to the public in December last year and has attracted 55,000 visitors.
