Movie Animation Park Studios (GPS: 4.66475, 101.08402), also known as MAPS, is a theme park in the newly developed township of Bandar Meru Raya in of Ipoh, Perak. It is proclaimed to be the first animation theme park in Asia. Built at a cost of RM520million, theme park opened to the public on 26 June, 2017. It is a joing venture between Perak Corporation Berhad and the Sanderson Group, and features animations from DreamWorks Animation and The Smurfs.

Maps is open daily from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm Mondays to Fridays, and until 10:00 pm on Saturdays, Sundays, public holidays and school holidays. I see that there is a bus stop in front of the theme park, but at the time I went, I don't believe there is a regular bus service to that bus stop. The nearest bus station is the Amanjaya Bus Terminal. If you arrive there, you may have to call an Uber or Grab to take you to the entrance of MAPS.

Visit to Movie Animation Park Studios

I passed by the Movie Animation Park Studios on 9 March, 2018, stopped the car and just have a look from the outside. I didn't have time to go in, as that will consume more time than I have on hand. I got there at around 9:55am, just 5 minutes from the opening time, but saw that there were hardly any visitors, if at all. Maybe I was too early, as the morning was still very hot. Maybe business will pick up later in the day.
