All aboard! The 9pm, 5 November 2019 Train To Busan from Resorts World Genting is about to depart. Stopping at all stations, including the zombie-infected Seoul Station, the over-run Daejeon station platform and the toxic Chemical Cargo Train en-route to Busan. Have a pleasant trip. It is a journey that you’ll never forget.

Lead by Roger Ong, Assistant Vice President of Entertainment & Events from Resorts World Genting together with Jzune Wong, Business Development Manager from AirAsia and Jed Mok, Chief Executive Officer of VividThree, together they gave a spectacular launch of the multimillion-ringgit production horror house.

“We have spared no expense in recreating and replicating the world of the blockbuster film Train To Busan.  It is truly a unique set- up and we hope our guests will love the experience. This Horror House is part of our drive to continue innovating and consistently introducing new and unique experiences found nowhere else in the world but at Resorts World Genting. The Train to Busan railway office is now open. I have my ticket, and I hope you do too. Please come aboard and let Resorts World Genting take you on a thrilling ride,” said Roger Ong, Assistant Vice President of Entertainment & Events from Resorts World Genting.

According to Jed Mok, Chief Executive Offer of VividThree, “We asked ourselves: what we would do if we were one of those ordinary, everyday Koreans that somehow got caught up in a zombie apocalypse? What would have happened if we made a different choice in those scenarios, compared to what was done by the movie’s characters. It was really fun to brainstorm over what could be done and how we could expand the universe. But it was also a huge challenge, as working with a successful IP like Train to Busan is a daunting task, not least because there are so many fans around the world that love the movie. I believe we have done a great job and come experience it yourself!”

Based on the blockbuster 2016 South Korean zombie apocalypse movie Train To Busan, Resorts World Genting unleashes a railway line of horror for two months that will offer a unique blend of horrific thrills and scary fun to fans of the movie and fans of horror in general. With a global box office gross exceeding US$93 million, Train To Busan is one of the highest-grossing Korean films ever. In Malaysia, it has grossed over RM21 million and still ranks as the top Korean film of all time in the market. So, local and global audiences will be familiar with the story of a father and daughter attempting to survive among a zombie outbreak – which has been described as ‘a thrillingly unique and pure entertaining take on the zombie genre’ with ‘plenty of social commentary… and skillfully staged action.’

All those elements, which made Train To Busan a runaway cinematic success, have been carefully transitioned into a unique, one-of-a-kind hyper reality experience at the Train To Busan Horror House experience. Developed collaboratively between Resorts World Genting and virtual reality specialists Vividthree, the Horror House blends practical effects, intricate sets, as well as cutting-edge visual and virtual technology to fully immerse guests into a familiar world where the stakes are high and terror is always just around the corner.

The Train To Busan Horror House will be open from Friday to Sunday between 1 November to 1 December 2019, and daily from 2 December 2019 to 1 January 2020. Tickets are priced at RM90 for regular admission (RM80 for Genting Rewards Club members).
