During the daytime, a visit to WaterWorld is an ideal option as children and adults can play on exciting spiral and rainbow slides and water rides, like River Adventure through LED-lit caves, a giant Jacuzzi, and the Wave Pool. One of its thrill rides, the Tornado, is a 48-metre water slide with a seven-storey funnel-like tube. Inclined at a 45-degree angle, it starts out 18 metres wide and tapers down to a three-metre wide tube before you splash into a 125 sq. m landing pool.
Hailed as Malaysia’s largest snow park, SnoWalk in i-City is a 4,645 sq. m attraction that’s decorated with LED-lit igloos, ice houses, slides, a mini-bobsled run, snowmen, ice-carved penguins, and various ice sculptures. Another interesting attraction in this theme park is the Trick Art Museum; a spacious exhibit with unique paintings of wildlife, sculptures and landmarks around the world that seem to come to life when photographed.
i-City Theme Park also hosts a Hollywood-themed interactive wax museum, complete with red carpet and a massive golden Oscar statue at the main entrance. Expect life-like wax characters of beloved celebrities and icons such as Michael Jackson, Jackie Chan, Britney Spears, Steve Jobs, Albert Einstein, and even the royal British family like Prince William and Kate Middleton.
As i-City Theme Park operates in a cash-free system, guests are required to purchase an i-Card (a prepaid electronic-cash card) to enjoy all the rides and attractions. Not only is it convenient to carry around, you also save loads of time for an adventure-filled day instead of waiting in long queues at the ticket counters.
With a vast array of exciting museums and thrilling rides in a colourful carnival-esque atmosphere, i-City Theme Park is perfect for families who want to enjoy an unforgettable experience of fun and adventure in Kuala Lumpur.
