Hero of Malacca is a combination of a major dark ride and a show. Riders are invited into a heavily themed queue line inspired by the historica port of Malacca, at a time when pirates were prominent. A pre-show introduces the legendary story of how Malaysian national hero Hang Tuah defended his country from pirates . Riders then board large boats transporting them through the dark ride portion of the ride. The ride shows scenes of life in the port and also of the battle between Hang Tuah, his crew and the pirates, by a combination of decors, projections and live actors. Eventually, riders are asked to leave the boats again and take place in a large theater, were a show depicts the final battle between both factions and a surprise attack from a mythical creature.
The ride uses the same format as Jinshan Temple Showdown, which is found in many Fantawild parks. However, the Fantawild Asian Legend park focuses on the culture of South East Asian countries, in contrast to the other Fantawild parks depicting elements from Chinese culture. Therefore, the theming and storyline of this ride were changed to represent an aspect of Malaysian culture.
