A new tourist attraction called Melaka Horror House (Rumah Seram Melaka), scheduled to be completed in May, is expected to attract 300,000 visitors every year and contribute to the state’s revenue.
Melaka Chief Minister Datuk Seri Sulaiman Md Ali said the project, with an investment of about RM21 million, developed in the compound of the Taming Sari Tower will present visitors with genres of horror, mystery, and dark fantasy based on folklore that have occurred in the state.
“The horror theme was chosen as a new tourism product in Melaka because we want to diversify recreational places for tourists. Among the attractions, we already have included a zoo and Dinosaur World but we do not have any horror-themed attractions yet.
“Therefore, for visitors who want something different, for example, to test their courage, they can choose Melaka Horror House as a tourist destination,” he said.
According to Sulaiman, although the attraction has the concept of a haunted house, visitors will be able to gain knowledge of historical stories such as the legend of Hang Tuah and that of Princess Hang Li Po in a more interactive form.
