We never used to be into Theme Parks, till we had a baby, Luca.
Now, most of our outings or planned trips with her older cousins, and it usually includes Theme Parks.
For now, we mainly explore theme parks in Malaysia which are affordable and easy to access.
One of the excellent tools we found when searching for fun theme parks in Malaysia, was actually by Expedia. Simply select from their drop down menu, one of the suggested parks by location, or admission fee or type of activity, to learn about the attractions, from rides to safaris, to how to get there, what hotels to stay in nearby and what travel bloggers have to say about them etc etc…
It’s so easy!
Anyway from experience, here are our Top 5 theme parks to Visit in Malaysia…
1. Sunway Lagoon, Selangor
Right at our backyard too and so easy to access is Sunway Lagoon. The theme park is divided into six main zones which target different age groups. These zones include: The Water Park, Amusement Park, Nickelodeon Lost Lagoon, Wildlife Park, Extreme Park and Scream Park. For example, in Scream Park you will find the spooky attractions, such as The Ghost Busters Adventure aimed for the older guests.
On the other hand, in Amusement Park zone, all of the rides are kid-friendly and smooth, such as Captain Kid’s Candyland Playground. If you are not interested in the active attractions, but fancy more of the relaxed time with your family, then visit the Sunway Lagoon’s Wildlife Park zone. Wildlife Park has a zoo with over 150 species of animals for you to see, and you will also be able to feed some. Luca LOVES the animals, we can’t tear her away.
2. Kidzania, Kuala Lumpur
Kidzania Kuala Lumpur offers a full day of role-play activities that encourage children’s intellectual growth. In this park, children are offered 90 different professions, such as policeman, fire fighter, doctors or actors, to understand what the workplace environment is, and imagine themselves being a grown-up for a day. This is a highly popular park in Kuala Lumpur, so it is advisable to purchase tickets online or coming in early while the waiting queue is not too long. Kidzania encourages your child to grow, through different professional role-plays, revealing scenarios they will face as an adult. So far Luca is a little young but we’ve brought her cousins aged 7 and 9 years old, and her along, to observe them in action. The kids love it.
