After a string of delays, Carnival Magic, Phuket’s newest USD$ 190 million theme park, finally soft-opens today with much fanfare to a crowd of thousands. “Interest in the theme park has been immense and thousands of tickets have been pre-sold”, reported Kittikorn Kewkacha, creator & CEO of Carnival Magic.
Visitors on the first day of business were foreign tourists, with Thais and local residents making up about 20%, according to Carnival Magic internal survey.
Carnival Magic is the world’s first Thai carnival theme park. The park has a number of attractions inspired by Thai culture and festivals including a 2,200 theater housing an indoor parade, and an illumination park that broke many world records.
“We plan to launch a world-wide promotional campaign covering most of Asia, Australia, North America and Europe once the pandemic is over. But for the time being, our focus will be Thai nationals and visitors from Southeast Asian countries”, Mr. Kittikorn said.
