SINGAPORE: The Downtown East resort at Pasir Ris will soon get a facelift.
The former Escape Theme Park, which closed last year, will make way for a new resort.
The 24-year-old Costa Sands Resort will also be replaced by a bigger and more exciting water theme park.
The redevelopment project will kick off end of this year, if resort owner NTUC Club gets the go ahead.
It will take five years to complete, at a cost of about a hundred million dollars.
But NTUC Club assures the public that admission charges will remain affordable.
It announced on Thursday its expansion plans, as it gears up to mark its 25th anniversary.
NTUC Club CEO Yeo Khee Leng said: "The aspirations have changed, we are serving a much larger number of members.
"And I think people are looking at providing different kind of experiences, so the new resort will take (that) into account, like better rooms, more family type facilities."
