A Sons of Anarchy themed coaster in Malaysia.......okay haha. I never would have imagined that to be an IP that resonates with an international audience but hey I'm all for a dueling motorcycle coaster!

Any word on the manufacturer? If it's a motorbike coaster like the theme would suggest it looks like either a Zamperla or an Intamin.

Still weird to see this so much happening with this park! I honestly think the brands they're getting are far more valuable than the park they're going into, so I'll be curious to see if the quality meets the standards of the Fox IPs and for how long.

Nice to see another one of these seemingly never ending projects getting closer to completion.

So with the aquisition of Fox by Disney this week this is technically now a Disney park. (although obviously not really)
A strange side effect of that massive deal.

I'm assuming it won't actually have any tangible affect on the park itself but its interesting to note Disney probably now own it (or at least the licences anyway, depending how the deal for the original licenses/ownership is structured).

If they actually own any part, I'd bet they dump it and re-work a licensing-only deal.

A Disney park that can be even emptier than HK Disneyland? Magical.

Do they own it though? They didn't buy all of Fox, just the movie studios. Everything else is still owned by Newscorp.

^They are purchasing the entertainment elements of the company, save for a few sports broadcasting segments, so everything Fox licensed for this park would be under the Disney domain when the deal is done. I'd imagine they'll let this park run pretty loosely though because the deal was set up long before the Disney purchase, much like was done for IMG Worlds of Adventure with the Marvel section.
