Genting Highland’s theme park is finally open to the public today, 8 February 2022.
After years of waiting and delays from legal disagreements, Malaysians will finally be able to step foot in Genting SkyWorlds and experience the theme park in the skies once again.
The major thing about Genting SkyWorlds is that they have themed movie- and adventure-inspired ‘worlds’, ranging from family favourite Ice Age to Night At The Musuem and more!
But is the Genting SkyWorlds theme park revamp worth your time? We find out.
The props and craftsmanship in the theme park is a huge upgrade. Genting SkyWorlds (GSW) spared no expense at making each world populated with props and beautiful backdrops.
Leaning fully into the theme aspect of theme park, each world features plenty of related miscellany to make the world pop. Everything is in vibrant colours with a great eye for detail.
This also means that every corner can make for a fantastic backdrop for pictures and the like!
The main part of the theme park are the rides and attractions, and GSW certainly delivers.
There are 17 rides in total with 2 additional ones coming soon.
Worlds like Ice Age and Epic feature family-friendly rides that are more relaxed and laid-back without being boring. The Epic world does feature some water-based rides so expect to get a little wet.
Thrill-seekers will find more exciting rides over at worlds like Andromeda Base, with rides that do their best to spin riders and hurl them into the air. Visitors who get motion sickness should definitely pace themselves on the rides and take plenty of breaks in between.
While there are plenty of new rides that are wonderfully fresh and thrilling, eagle-eyed visitors may notice a few beloved rides that seem extremely familiar.
Theme park connoisseurs will find Genting SkyWorlds quite similar to internationally-renowned parks overseas such as Universal Studios Singapore (which is, in case you didn’t know, also owned by Genting Group), from the layout to their ‘worlds’ and the vibrant props and decorations.
Comparatively, Genting SkyWorlds is priced at RM189 (currently RM151 for their opening promotion) for a standard adult ticket; while Universal Studios Singapore is priced at SGD81 (around RM250) per adult ticket.
Currently, there are no VIP tickets (the kind that allows you to cut queues on all the rides) available, but each Genting SkyWorlds ticket comes with 6 Virtual Queue passes (available on the theme park app) you can use to skip the queue.
However, not all rides are currently operating, so it is best to double-check which rides are open on the day of your visit.
For Malaysians eager to spend a full day enjoying cool mountain air and the thrill of a theme park experience, Genting SkyWorlds will be your best bet. Find more information and book your tickets here.
