KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 7, 2015:
The haze situation has not deterred thrill-seekers from taking on the Skytrex Adventure park experience despite a public advisory to avoid outdoor activities during unhealthy air quality levels.
Skytrex Sdn Bhd Sales and Operations assistant Razali Idris said attendance had generally not been affected because group bookings were made months in advance.
In recent weeks, he said there had only been one cancellation from a school but other visitors who made the bookings decided to proceed with the eco-friendly experience.
“We receive bookings even in times of bad haze. But overall the attendance is not affected,” he said when contacted today.
Razali added that the park could cater up to 350 visitors daily.
The recreational park in Shah Alam is located 3km inside 817 hectares of forest in Taman Botani Negara Shah Alam, while another park is situated in Langkawi, Kedah.
Visitors can choose from three obstacle courses from beginner level up to its extreme challenge circuit with highest platforms ranging between 5 metres and 22 metres.
Asked whether he received any complaints related to the haze, Razali said most complaints received was related to other issues.
“Most times, we receive comments only about our location as many come from distant areas such as Bangi and Petaling Jaya,” he said.
The only decline in figures, he said, was at its beginner’s level course which was suited for children.
“Perhaps the parents are concerned for their children’s health and safety,” he said.
