The park will also feature five different European villages, all at varying elevations. Starting with the Iberian village at the bottom, visitor will then find the British, Balkan and Nordic villages as they ascend before finding the Alpine village at the very top.
Founder of Sim Leisure Group and ESCAPE Theme Parks - Sim Choo Khen said "The conception of these five themed villages leveraged on our expertise in designing and building themed facades across multiple theme parks around the world, including Europe. These themed villages will also feature accommodation and rental offerings, in addition to hosting traditional European pastimes and activities, which will complement the 'fun factor' of ESCAPE's signature Gravityplay and Adventureplay attractions."
