Outdoor Theme Park

Outdoor Theme Park

Genting Outdoor Theme Park is one of Malaysia’s premiere centre for wholesome family entertainment. Once you’re in Genting Highlands, be prepared to experience exciting, thrilling and sky-high rides in their theme park. Usually, when you book a day tour in any tour company of the Genting Highlands, the entrance to the outdoor theme park will be included on your payment but when you are going to Genting via bus from Kuala Lumpur, the entrance is not included. In that case, you just need to buy ticket at the ticket counter.

 

Some of the attractions are Corkscrew, Astro Fighter, Cyclone, Flying Coaster, Dinosaur Land, Flying Dragon, Turbo Drop, Gun Simulator, Rolling Thunder Mine Train, Grand Prix Fan Kart and many more.

Genting Indoor Theme Park is for the young ones. It is part of the Genting Theme Park Complex and is located inside the older part of First World Plaza. To be able to ride the attractions here, you must have an all day pass ticket that you can purchase at the ticket counter of the outdoor theme park. Inside this indoor theme park, you can find six themed areas from around the world. Each of this area features unique rides with theme from Champs Elysee (France), Venice (Italy), Times Square & Universal Walk (America), Swiss Alps (Switzerlands) and Genting Walk (Malaysia). The indoor theme park is a fantasyland full of fun and adventure with numerous exciting video arcade games.

For some, the main attraction in Genting Highlands are the 24 hours casinos. I noticed that there are several big casinos around Genting and only those above 21 years of age can enter. Patrons wearing sunglasses, hats, slippers, short pants, sandals and sports attire are not permitted into Casino de Genting. Cameras and backpacks are also not allowed inside, they have a locker rental at the entrance of the casinos that you can rent for 2RM.

Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Museum

With a tagline of “The Odd, The Unusual, The Bizarre”, the Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Museum showcases collections of oddities by Robert Ripleys from his travel around the world. Basically, it is a museum that contains weird, bizarre and one-of-a-kind exhibit that would either shock or fascinate you. This museum is the place to be when in Genting if you are into strange stuff.

 

A lot of people come to Genting Highlads not only because of the various attractions and amenities offered in the huge complex. Another reason is to enjoy the pleasant cool weather since it has an altitude of 5,700 feet above sea level. The weather here is way cooler than that of Kuala Lumpur and other part of Malaysia hence this is a favorite destination in Malaysia.
