Sarawak’s first water theme park will be built on a 23-acre site at Senadin Miri soon according to media statement celebrating Miri City 5th Anniversary on Thursday.

“Work on the RM150 million Senadin Water Theme Park will start as soon as we get the approval for buildings from Sarawak Planning Authority and from Miri City Council,” said its developer Dato Lau Siu Wai.
