The fun never seems to stop at Genting ó City of Entertainment, perched on the top of Genting Highlands, and reached by road or cable car. There is a choice of outdoor or indoor theme parks, indoor splash pool with warm water, or outdoor waterpark. In the evening, there is spectacular entertainment at the Genting International Showroom or Pavilion, be it a thrilling magic show or an ice-skating extravaganza, shopping at newly opened First World Plaza, games, and feasting on a wide range of delicious food.
The sparkling, new First World Plaza indoor theme park cum shopping complex features a series of fun rides and six theme areas from around the world ó France (Champs Elysee), England (London), Italy (Venice), America (Times Square and Universal Walk), Switzerland (Swiss Alps) and Malaysia (Genting Walk).
In Gentingís Venice, you can cruise on a canal in the Venice Gondola Ride, before hopping over to London to ride on the Ferris Wheel beside the mini Big Ben. Round the corner are Universal Walk, Times Square, and replicas of the Statue of Liberty and the Oscar. France is represented by a mini Eiffel Tower and a mini Arc de Triomphe. The suspended overhead rides such as the Euro Express, Reindeer Cruiser, Rio Float and the Monorail provide an excellent birdís eye view of the bustling First World indoor theme park that extends over four levels.
With a Swiss Alps theme, the Snow World features a log cabin, an igloo, toboggan slides and snow play area. Itís cold in here, so do remember to wear warm clothing, but itíll be fun riding on the toboggan! Children will surely love the Rainforest Splash Pool even though itís cold outside, as the pool is filled with warm water.
For the adventurous, are you ready to fly? The First World Plaza also boasts the Genting Sky Venture, the only free fall skydiving simulator in Asia, and to challenge you further is the Genting X-pedition Wall, an international-standard rock climbing wall stretching 10 to 15 metres in height, and with a 6-metre overhang. Then get ready to scream on the Haunted Adventure funicular train that goes up a 4-degree slope to the Horror House.
You and your friends can next have a friendly competition at the 28-lane Genting Bowl, or at the Q-bowl, where the game is similar to pool. More entertainment awaits at the Funtasy World video arcade and the Cineplex. With 48 retail and 52 food / drinks outlets at the First World Plaza, there will never be a dull moment.
Over 30 rides can be enjoyed in the Outdoor Theme Park. Thrill-seekers will want to try all four roller coaster rides ó the double loop Corkscrew, Rolling Thunder Mine Train, Cyclone and Flying Dragon. The daring ones will also want to ride the Spinner Flying Carousel, the Super Toboggan, and the intense Turbo Drop that drops riders 185 feet down in the air and then instantly shoots them upwards. On the Sungai Rejang Flume Ride and at the Genting Splash, the only waterpark experience available at 6,000 feet (2,000 metres) above sea level, be prepared to get wet. Itís part ofí the fun!
There are numerous childrenís rides and famiIy rides including the Monorail and Theme Park Skyway cable cars. Younger children will enjoy rides such as the Flying Baby Jumbo, Teacup, Pirate Train, Rodeo Rider and Astro Fighter. In the Indoor Theme Park are three more thrill rides - Space Odyssey, Disco Bumper and the Motion Master Simulator that maneuvers around sharp turns and dives into deep gorges, and a rich variety of skill games and video games that can be enjoyed until late at night.
