Paramount Pictures plans to build the largest theme park in Southeast Asia.
The amusement park will be built in Taman Kerti Bali Semesta, Pekutatan Jembrana, Bali.
The project development plan for the Paramount Theme Park, a joint venture with Indonesian company PT Kios Ria Kreasi, received full support from the Chairman of the People’s Consultative Assembly (MPR RI) Mr. Bambang Soesatyo.
According to Soesatyo, the Paramount Theme Park will further strengthen Bali’s position as a center for recreation and entertainment for the world’s citizens.
“At the same time, improving Bali’s economy, especially after the Covid-19 pandemic,” said Soesatyo.
Soesatyo stated that the location of the amusement park is also very strategic, considering that it is located within the development area of the 95-kilometer Gilimanuk-Mengwi Toll Road.
The toll road also connects the Gilimanuk Harbor to the city of Denpasar and the Badung, Gianyar, and Tabanan regencies.
The soft-launch of the project is targeted for 2025.
It is hoped that Paramount Theme Park can attract 5 million tourists each year and make Bali more charming in the eyes of global tourists.
Paramount Pictures is a subsidiary of Viacom CBS, a mass media and entertainment conglomerate and owner of the largest TV market share in the United States as well as the owner of Nickelodeon.
Paramount Pictures is well-known as a producer of international films such as Mission Impossible, Top Gun, Star Trek, and the Godfather.
According to Soesatyo, Paramount Pictures’ investment shows that Indonesia is very friendly to investors.
This also shows that there are many investment opportunities available for investors, especially in the tourism sector.
“Not only Bali, Indonesia also still has many other favorite tourist destinations such as Lombok, Belitung, Lake Toba and Labuan Bajo,” stated Soesatyo.
