MELAKA, Sept 10 (Bernama) -- Melaka Alive, a tourism attraction that features the glorious history of Melaka through theatre performance incorporating high technology, will introduce its latest product, Pirate Adventure 5D, at a cost of about RM1.3 million.
Melaka Alive chairman, Mohd Nizar Mohd Najib said the five-dimension theatre show would be staged at The Pirate Adventure within the Bandar Hilir Historical Complex grounds.
He said the Pirate Adventure 5D, located in the UNESCO World Heritage Site, here, was aimed at providing an extraordinary experience to visitors through the combination of theatre elements, travel and sophisticated special effects.
"Visitors can view directly the life of the pirates during Melaka's glorious days of yore through this theatre production.
"We are constantly improving our tourism products from time to time, besides introducing new ones, and so far we have spent RM20 million on the Melaka Alive project," he told reporters, here, Thursday.
Earlier, he attended the launching of the 'Pirate Adventure 5D Melaka Alive' theatre production in Bandar Hilir, here, by Chief Minister Datuk Seri Idris Haron. Mohd Nizar said this latest product was expected to draw more tourists to Melaka Alive and simultaneously to the state.
Idris, meanwhile, said the theatre presentation would be a new icon for Melaka's tourism sector.
"I believe Melaka Alive will contribute to increasing tourist arrivals in Melaka while the state government will assist in publicising this tourism product, as it not only has an entertainment element but educational and historical elements too," he said.
The Pirate Adventure 5D operates from 10am to 7pm, Monday to Thursday, and from 10am to 9.30pm from Friday to Sunday. Tickets to the show are priced at RM15 to RM25.
