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.
Not really. It was probably delayed becos Genting sued Fox and Disney for pulling out of an agreement over the theme park.

Recently, they reached a settlement with Disney and Fox over the lawsuit.

I dun think the layout would change much but the use of Fox characters wiil probably be modified. But they have agreed on the licensing of some Fox characters so we will still see them at the theme park.

I dun think it will be called Fox World though.

I did an 6 am early checkin recently, cant rem how much i paid for early checkin.

The fee has been inplemented for at least quite a while ( > 1 yr ). Now, choosing window view, which level, bed also charge a 5rm fee.
If possible, can you check if you still have the receipt or something?

Yes, the early check in flat RM5 surcharge has been implemented for quite some time now.

But this tiered surcharge is something new.

When I was there in early Jul, it was still RM5 flat. I only noticed the tiered surcharge today when I was checking Genting website.

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.

Hmmm what is the bare minimum for Superior Deluxe?
Care to share more information?

Assuming 3D2N, 80 pts and more will confirm get you another 3D2N stay.

50 to 80 pts is not confirm will get 3D2N. They might give you just 1N superior deluxe. You will confirm get deluxe.

I don't have any experience with less than 50 points.

For the avoidance of doubt, you are only talking points from gaming right?

Yes. The room comp program is run by the casino side. The GP/TP you earn for retail spend is only useful for getting upgraded card status (i.e. to reach the 300 TP to upgrade from silver to gold).

Also they have implemented new rules for room awards. Previously you could get Maxims rooms on a silver card. Now you need a gold card before you are eligible for a Maxims room comp.

The best you can get on a silver card is the World Club room at FWH. I didn't bother to map the points for a World Club room as they are super popular. Hence even if you clock the nec points to get the comp, chances are you won't get a chance to use it unless you book very early.

ya it will be renamed and btw if you look down as you view from inside the awana cable ride, you will probably realised that genting on their end also didnt stick to their 10ha commitment for the theme park as claimed by fox.

I consider myself lucky, I manage to get Maxim comp room for weekdays. Silver card holder. 0 TP currently.

Thought you requested for KL view

BTW, what is with non corner floor and what's wrong with it?
I got KL view usually without any request. Actually I prefer the carpark view more. People usually avoid corner rooms to avoid ghostly encounter and long walk in my opinion.

Nope, dont keep receipt.

No intention to take night bus anymore. Reach there too early, and you are taking leftover rooms fron previous day.

If possible, can you check if you still have the receipt or something?

Genting My share price has been hit by bad news one after another. New tax, theme park, buying bankrupt company.

Maybe it is durian picking if you play malaysia shares.

I'm one of the few who requested for end/ corner rooms partly bcuz i dislike rooms with connecting doors - it's more quiet. Also luv high floors & non-smoking.

Maxim & GG dun really hv to walk tat far....for Maxim i prefer Mountain view but GG no choice as no direct mountain view, i choose carpark view opposite durian stall n in front if big display screen.

Nothing to do with being lucky, as i said b4 card status has no impact on what type of hotel u get. Not only u, there are many other bro's here who can vouch tat it's very common to get Maxim or even GG tho u r silver only. Bottom line is yr casino activities tat counts - the gp u clocked in yr recent trip.

I always take night bus and the reason u mentioned not really a concern to me as I only use the fwh room (foc fr bus rolling program) to sleep for few hours while waiting for my GG or Mxm room to be ready after pre-registration early morning upon arrival.

For the current system, it is only 300 TP to get a gold card. If you can clock enough points to be comped Maxims / GG rooms, you will no longer be holding a silver card.
