Any idea when will the outdoor theme park be opened ?

They just say end of the year but when exactly ?
The theme park already delayed for a few years.

Even if they give a completion date. They will fark it up for sure.

So dont bother.

And regarding the void, it's opened already but the programme change periodically is it ? They put on their website that the star wars one will be open on 6/12/19

How is the Genting Premium Outlet ? Got things to buy ? Is it walking distance from rws genting ?

Haven't been there for a few years.

Only Uncle Lim knows

I am not really sure but it appears to be the case. Besides Star Wars, I remember seeing other like Ralph, Ghostbusters etc. So maybe you get to choose which one you want to play when you buy the tickets. Or maybe they have a schedule or something (just like the cinema)

It may be worth a visit if you have things to buy but frankly, even the perpetual sale price seems a little over-inflated. Besides shopping, there are also many eating outlets. So I will say you may want to visit it at least once.

To go there, you will need to take the Awana Skyway.

You can try to use the standard/deluxe room check in hack. A standard/deluxe room cost RM 60/70 which is less than a 4 hr daily room.

You can buy 1 for a day before you are to arrive. Close to your date of travel, you can call Genting to inform you are going to be late (IMPT - if you don't call ahead, they will CANCEL your room).

When you arrive at 4 am to 5 am, you then have a place to crash until noon. Assuming you register when you arrive and there was no major event the day bf, you should get your room by 2 pm to 3 pm.
I do something similar but a little different when I take the nite coach.

Instead of booking for the previous nite, I will book the room for the current nite when I arrive. Eg. arrive early morning 28 Aug, I will book the FWH room for 28 Aug.

So when I arrive at Genting ard 3am or so, I will go over to Maxim to pre-register. Then I will go to the casino and play a bit until breakfast. Then do an early check-in and rest in FWH till around noon.

Then walked over to Maxim to check in.

Has anyone done an early check in at FWH, Resort Hotel or TPH recently?

I was just looking at the Genting website and noticed something new. Not sure when they implemented this or if they have started charging.

Early check-in fee

Check-in time................Surcharge (per room)
6am – 9am......................RM20
9am – 12nn.....................RM10
12nn – 3pm.....................RM5
Source: First World Hotel
Resort Hotel
Theme Park Hotel

They must have realised that charging RM5 for check in at 6am is too low. I don't mind paying RM20 if I can get a room at 6am but I doubt it comes with any guarantee.

its getting crowded these days up the mount.
guess what? the cheena n indra make up the most. but i believe sporeans come in no small numbers too! let alone their own locals!

so getting rooms will not be easy henceforth.
i used to be crockford entitled every mth but no longer.
at most i get grand or maxims. still not too bad but after u get a taste there, it somehow became the new standard but i have to upgrade higher which must be crazy!

i only want to enjoy when & where i can and not trapped. i wld rather maintain the local one where less then 20mins i can be seated at a slot machine and get to sleep at hardrock.

btw, anyone here 'sell rooms'? easy? no complications?
i was advised by counter staff not to..but i really got too many.

I was told by one of my Malaysian friends it was delayed due to Fox takeover by Disney. Apparently, they are looking to change certain layout and themes of the park.

The new comp system is heavily based on your play during the last visit. Their new app gives detailed breakdowns of how much GP you earned for your trip. This makes it easy to keep a log to track how much GP you need to clock in order for you to get the room that you want.

Once you have established the cutoff point, it is a simple matter of making sure you hit the required number of points. For me, I usually do the bare minimum to get a superior deluxe.

Ad hoc evidence suggests that they apply some kind of discount on the points you earn if you buy the casino package. If you want to play the bare minimum to get free rooms, you might therefore want to skip the package and use GP to redeem casino food. Also there has been some suggestion that the system metric uses the amount of GP you clock per day. To avoid messing up your metrics, you might therefore want to start playing only after the casino day starts at 4 am if you arrive early in the morning. On the day going back, you might want to avoid any last minute morning play.

If you are traveling with a companion, you can do a de-facto late check out. One of you stays in the room while the other auto check out by dropping off the FWH key. You can then go back and use the room until housekeeping comes along. The same hack also works if you are on a late bus / flight back to Sg.

This is risky. Housekeeping might come quite fast.

I usually make sure I am back in room before 11am. And leave the room only at 1pm. Only can do this at FWH. Resort Hotel they keep coming to knock on door.

Your method is ok but why drop the key ?

Last week I did a pre-registration at 9 plus in the morning and got informed via sms that my room was ready at 5.36pm. It was on a weekday and previous day was full house as well.
5.36pm? :O thatís like way past the standard check-in time, did you made any special requests?

Thought you requested for KL view

BTW, what is with non corner floor and what's wrong with it?

Once you drop key, it is considered you check out. They normally only send pple to knock door if the system register you are still in the room. I haven't done a test to see which way you can stay longer.
