LOS ANGELES – An international collaboration between Paramount Pictures and the Indonesian company, PT Kios Ria Kreasi (Kios), has now been officially announced through the signing of an agreement to build an international theme park for families in Bali, Indonesia. The 57 Ha theme park, which will be one of the largest theme parks in Southeast Asia, will carry a lush tropical atmosphere and will be filled with wondrous adventures for all ages. The park will bring a new experience of natural beauty that meets Paramount’s cinematic worlds, infused with Indonesia’s culture and hospitality.
The agreement celebration was carried out by Paramount Global’s Executive Vice President of Themed Entertainment and Experiences, Ty Granaroli, with the Managing Director of Kios, Ade Sulistioputra. It was attended by Kios’ Business Development Director, Adinda Kuntadi, Paramount Global’s Senior Vice President of Themed Entertainment, Marie Marks, along with other representatives from Paramount’s Consumer Products and Experiences group, and joined virtually by Indonesian officials including the Minister of Tourism & Creative Economy of Indonesia, Sandiaga Salahuddin Uno, the Governor of Bali, I Wayan Koster, The Regent of Jembrana Regency, I Nengah Tamba, the Ambassador of the Republic of Indonesia to the United States of America, Rosan Roeslani, and Managing Director of Perumda Kerta Bali Saguna, Nyoman Kami Artana, on Monday evening, July 25, 2022, at Paramount Pictures Studio, in Los Angeles, California, in the United States.
Ade Sulistioputra said that this integrated theme park will become an attractive tourist destination and can educate the global community about the beautiful natural landscape of Indonesia with Paramount’s cinematic entertainment. He added that, based on a study conducted by EY Parthenon, the theme park is projected to attract more than 5 million visitors in its first year. "Paramount is a global brand that captures the imagination of everyone from children to adults. We all have exciting memories of Paramount films with a legacy of excellence that has lasted 110 years. We will tap into Paramount Picture’s library of over 1,000 films and use brands and characters that will appeal to people of all ages, while other attractions may draw on Nickelodeon’s characters such as SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora the Explorer, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” Ade explained.
In addition to park rides, the park will have two thematic hotels; Paramount Grand Resort, and the Nickelodeon Resort, which will present themes and characters from the Nickelodeon universe. These two hotels will have direct park access to the theme park by using digital tickets. An area of the park called “Land of Legends” will honor some of Indonesia’s incredible culture, myths, and legends, featuring the first Indonesian-inspired ride in an international theme park.
Paramount’s Ty Granaroli, enthusiastically welcomed the collaboration between his creative team and Kios, as they work together to create a unique blend of theme park and resort. "We believe that the beauty of Bali, combined with integrated resort hotels and a Paramount theme park will create a magnificent entertainment project that all of Indonesia can be proud of. A park like this can have a significant, long-term impact on tourism, including domestic and international visitors.”
