Sunway Lagoon
country: Malaysia, Southeast Asia

Upon entering Sunway Lagoon in Kuala Lumpur, you will probably find it more impressive than expected. Its theme park sits on a hill overlooking a water park containing a giant wave pool. The highlight of the water park is a very, very long suspension bridge traversing the endless pool – amazing to many and scary for some. The best and most thrilling thing you can probably do in the park is to pay an extra fee at the outer end of the suspension bridge, get attached to...

Cosmo's World
country: Malaysia, Southeast Asia

Indoor theme park in a major Kuala Lumpur shopping mall containing some ordinary fun fair rides and a huge roller coaster. I haven't seen anything like this before: the coaster snakes its way through several floors and areas of the mall, leaving a lasting visual impression! While it's nothing groundbreaking, Cosmo's World is solid fun in a mundane mall...

Legoland Malaysia
country: Malaysia, Southeast Asia

As evident from my other reviews I am not such a big fan of the Legoland parks. Lego's success was based on creating a toy which was as versatile and limitless as the imaginations of the children playing with it. The Legoland theme parks, by contrast, show a distinct lack of imagination on the part of their designers. I believe the brand can do more than simply surround mediocre roller coasters and flume rides with oversized lego brick figures. That said, the concept of...

Genting Highlands

Visited 2013. Terribly tasteless, casino-powered amusement park planted on a spectacular mountain top setting. Many rides old and rusty, with quality ranging from average to abysmal. Divided into an indoor and outdoor section, the latter being slightly more bearable. Highlight is the awe-inspiring cable car ride to the skyscraping casino perched on the mountain edge...

Hello Kitty Town & Little Big Club

Visited 2013. It's impressive what PR agencies and departments dare to call 'theme park'. This three-storey indoor entertainment center is not a theme park. I'm not even sure if you can call it FEC (Family Entertainment Center). It's more of a merchandise store extension, with the absolute minimum of space, rides and experiences. Boo!...

Danga World

Visited 2014. Expansive, desolate fairground with two small coasters and a Singapore view...

WaterWorld @i-City

Visited 2014. Small water park with a wave pool and a giant Tornado funnel slide that was out of service on my visit. ...

Desa Water Park

Visited 2014. Somewhat tasteless water park in between two highways. Boasts a 'Master Blaster' water coaster that was not operating on my visit. The parking lot looks already abandoned, which may serve as a percursor for the park's future...

Mines Wonderland

Visited 2014. Some folks believe it's still up and running, but there is no Mines Wonderland no more. A lone watchman guards its dilapidated former entrance...

i-City funfair

Visited 2014. Small, coaster-free funfair, sporting a big ferris wheel...

KidZania Kuala Lumpur

Visited 2014. As enchanting a concept and as admirable a business model as anywhere else in the world, KidZania broadens kids' perspective on the world and relieves parents for a day simultaneously...

Legoland Water Park

Visited 2014. Without the powerful support of the Lego brand, this would be considered a very small and unambitious water park, featuring three slide towers in various colors, a small wave pool and a lazy river with floating Lego bricks...

Crocodile Farm Dunia Buaya

Visited 2015. In the jungle, by the river, on Malaysian territory some 20km north of famous Singapore Changi airport, you will find a huge, undervisited crocodile farm. Run by a warm-hearted Chinese guy and offering the usual croc park highlights such as crocodile feeding and pic-with-baby croc, the true allure of this attraction is that, on a weekday, you'll be all by yourself. It's just you and 1,000 hungry crocodiles, some of them huge, in the jungle, by the river. Must...

Lost World of Tambun

Visited 2015. Given its adamant and efficient marketing campaigns in in-flight magazines and elsewhere, I expected more. Lost World of Tambun is just a small water theme park with a wave pool and a couple of slides. Dress recommendations for female visitors suggest that it predominantly caters to local visitors...

A'Famosa Safari Wonderland

Visited 2015. Elephant show and safari park where guests drive through tiger enclosures in a caged vehicle. The tigers looked rather starved, and upon exiting I figured out that one can open the barred safari vehicle doors from the inside. This is totally unsafe and a terrible accident waiting to happen. All in all, the safari park is in a state of abandonment and decay. They call it 'renovation', so let's hope...

A'Famosa Water Theme Park

Visited 2015. Large water park with numerous slide towers. Not particularly groomed and lacks attention to detail. Highlight is a newly-added giant funnel slide...

Langkawi Water Park

Visited 2017. New water park under construction in Kuah close to the jetty. Tornado slide is already up. Smart location...

Movie Animation Park Studios

Visited 2018. Not sure what happened here. Had a hard time finding any operating attraction. DreamWorks zone remains closed. Employee-to-visitor ratio was about 10:1. Looks like a well-meant project that suffered a stroke. This park won't survive. ...
