Water-playing at theme parks

When I went to KL recently and stayed at my in-laws place in Ampang, I managed to spend some time with my husband’s nephews who are 8 and 5 years old. They stayed at their grandparents’ place during the weekend. Since it is the school holiday now, most of their time are not occupied with meaningful activities. They spent every single second on watching TV, playing video games and staying idle. I’m glad I played lots of indoor games with them when I was there for only a couple of days.

I was thinking of including Theme Parks as another way to spend time with your children during the holidays. And all I could think about is Disneyland. How silly of me! As I was surfing the net for information on Theme Parks, I came across quite a few major ones in Malaysia.

1) Colmar Tropicale

2) Genting Theme Park

3) Sunway Lagoon Theme Park

4) The Mines Wonderland

5) Shah Alam Wet World Water Park- No url address and image for this destination. I just cut and paste the information from a tourist portal.

The perfect family outing destination, Wet World Shah Alam faces the scenic Taman Tasik Shah Alam and was constructed to be child-friendly and user safe. Like bees to honey, kids living in and around the Shah Alam area have been attracted to this water park since its opening in 1996. The park was designed to be child-friendly whereby no part of the water level in this park is more than one metre deep.

Its range of water attraction includes the Fountain of Youth, Cascading Waterfalls, Neptune Challenge, Atlantis City, Big Splash, Lighthouse Escape, Tunnel Water Slide, and Treasure Island. But the greatest thrill of all must be the Monsoon Buster ride, a big hit among kids and adults since it was opened. Touted as one of the world’s longest uphill water coaster rides, Monsoon Buster is 225 metres long. Propelled upward by water jets, the ride sends riders upward, defying the natural law of gravity. Mum and Dad can join in with the ride together with their children. Your kids will also have spectacular fun with the funny yellow submarine located at the supervised activity area. Visit the Shah Alam Wet World Theme Park and you are in for a real quality time with the family. Facilities found here include a fast food centre, gift shops and changing areas.

The Shah Alam Wet World Theme Park is open weekdays (except Wednesday) from 1pm to 7pm. On Saturdays, Sundays and Public Holidays from 10am to 8pm. Entry fees are minimal, RM5 for adults, RM3 for children weekdays, and RM7 for adults, RM4 for children on weekends and public holidays.

For more information, please contact 603-55102588 or 55107695.

6) Wet World Batu Pahat – for Johoreans, this the only water park available in the state.

7) A Famosa Waterworld-Quite suprise that there is no website for this famous park.

8) Bukit Merah Laketown Resort
