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.
“Therefore, for visitors who want something different, for example, to test their courage, they can choose Melaka Horror House as a tourist destination,” he told reporters after witnessing the signing ceremony of the new tourism product agreement between Melaka Taming Sari Berhad and RBA Risk Advisors Sdn Bhd at the Seri Negeri Complex here today.
At the event, Melaka Taming Sari was represented by its board members Abdullah Ali and Mohd Salleh Jusman, while RBA Risk Advisors was represented by its board members Zamberi Abdullah and Tee Lai Aun.
Also at the signing ceremony was State Tourism, Heritage and Culture Committee chairman Datuk Muhammad Jailani Khamis, who is also chairman of Melaka Taming Sari.
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.
