Cambodia Embarks on a USD 60 Million Theme Park With A Housing Development Project

In an effort to make their housing development project more attractive, the company behind Borey Peng Houth decided to put down another $60 million to create an international-standard amusement park along National Road 1.

Okhna Thai Mengly, CEO of the Peng Houth Group, said this week that the amusement park will cover 8 hectares and will also have a conference hall and wedding halls. The design will be inspired by European theme parks and will feature big trees and a walkway along the river. They plan to build three bridges connecting both sides of the river.

Thai Mengly went on to say that the project will be done creatively with an eye toward winning two international awards. The company is seeking to get the 5-star best park design award and the Cambodia Best Park Development award from the International Property Awards, which is based in England.

The Overseas Cambodia Investment Corporation (OCIC) is building a $2-million theme park in Phnom Penh's Chroy Changvar that will feature animatronic dinosaurs

The park, the first dinosaur-themed attraction in the Kingdom, will cover 5 hectares of land in Chroy Changvar Satellite City and is expected to open its doors to visitors in early 2019.

"The park will cost about $2 million, not including the price of the land," Mr Sarin said, adding that the stars of the show will be realistic animatronic dinosaurs that will inhabit a variety of settings, including mountains, rivers and pastures.

The project will make Chroy Changvar more popular with visitors, Mr Sarin pointed out, adding that the area already saw the construction of Ly Yong Phat’s Phnom Penh Safari World in the satellite city known as Techo Morakot.
