    Theme Parks in KL

    In the last of our posts on KL we wanted to covert the popular theme parks that there are in Kuala Lumpur. The UAE gives a different flavour to theme parks. As you know, or favourite is the Ferrari Theme Park, but KL gives a great option for families looking for theme park fun as part of their holidays.Kuala Lumpur has a good swathe of popular water theme parks boasting rides, water and family fun. Many of these offer fantastic ways of keeping cool in the hot and sticky climate, or if it is the rainy season and too wet to traipse around outside. These are the ones that we recommend:

    Many people head to the Genting Highlands to escape the heat of the city thanks to its elevation at 2000m. This is a rather glitzy park but it’s a good place to base—there are plenty of hotels on the hillside to choose from—for a few days of fun. There’s also something here for everyone from golf courses to casinos, shopping malls, water parks and video games. Opening hours Monday - Friday 10.00 am to 6.00 pm, Saturday and school holidays 9.00 am to 10.00 pm, Sunday public holidays 9.00 am to 6.00 pm
    Genting Highlands, Pahang, Malaysia.

    There’s every reason to visit this small satellite town about 15km southwest of the city centre and that’s to take in this multi award winning attraction. You can cool down in any number of watery activities such as on water slides, the surf beach, the wave pool or on a pirate ship. There are 80 rides and attractions all up and Sunway also hosts events and concerts. Opening hours are Monday & Wednesday-Friday 11.00am-6.00pm, Weekends 10.00am-6.00pm.

One of the most dizzing rides to try is the Supersonic Odyssey roller coaster, the biggest indoor roller coaster in the world at 800m in length. Opening hours are Monday - Friday
