I don’t like boring people and boring things in my life. I like heart-pumping exhilarating things. They make me feel alive, and I constantly look for things that gives me such feelings. I guess I am an Adreneline junkie after all. And speaking of being an Adrenaline junkie, I must share with you the perfect place you must go if you like all things fun and thrilling; the newly opened Skytropolis Funland in Resorts World Genting.
Skytropolis Funland made it’s debuts in December last year. Since it’s opening, it has attracted thousands of visitors to the resort. Previously known as the First World Indoor Theme Park, the attraction saw more than 20 million visitors walking through and enjoying the indoor theme park with more than 1,000,000 tickets sold a year before its closure in 2017.
Divided into Child, Family and Thrill categories, each of the rides has been specifically designed with a glorious andkaleidoscopic atmosphere. For children, things can start off merrily in the Ride ‘Em Round, a classic carousel of pastiche elephants, lions and horses, whirling around at speed. Pick up
the pace in the Whirly Bugs ride, where kids will be seated in pods rotating swiftly around a central spire. Boo Boo Bump provides a spin on the classic bumper cars, while Loop De Loop rotates frantically around an illuminated wrought-iron Genting Tower to shrieks of joy. Kid-friendly drop tower Jumping Spurs with mild drops and climbs will be added soon. Adults can get in on the fun as well, with rides meant for the whole family to enjoy.
Here’s me and my son, riding on the bumper car in Skytropolis Funland. I was abot reluctant to hop in cuz I’m a terrible bumper car driver and instead of bumping other cars, I keep getting pushed to the corner. But my son is a good bumper car driver, so I let him do the job.
Taking a ride at the carousel. More for kids, but hey, adults can give this a go too.
Taking the Space Cadet ride with my son. It’s not a fast ride and fits two person, so it is quite suitable for a pair of parent and child.
The Skytower ride was one of my favourite ride at Skytropolis Funland. This ride takes us up to the top of an Art Deco tower at a leisurely pace, only to drop us at thrilling speed to the base. I screamed really loud, when it dropped, I must say. It’s so exciting and I will definitely go on this again in a heartbeat in my next visit to Skytropolis Funland.
Here’s experiencing another thrill ride at Skytropolis Funland; The Disco. It spins really fast and gives such an Adrenaline boost. I must admit that I screamed really loud when it started to spin too. A must ride if you love those crazily fast ride.
But if you’re to ask me what gives me most excitement at Skytropolis Funland is this; the Zipline Eagle Landing.
Here’s yours truly, all geared up for the Zipline Eagle Landing.
Stretching 200 metres across the indoor theme park, four floors from the ground.
The zip line which is the longest in a shopping mall in Malaysia, offers a one-of-a-kind view of the indoor theme park for adrenaline junkies who will whizz through, high above everyone. It’s definitely not for the faint-hearted or those with phobia of heights, but perfect for thrill seekers and Adrenaline junkie like me.
