Theme parks in Malaysia has created a trend with travel in Asia. Especially with their neighboring countries, particularly Singapore. Though Singapore definitely has its own share of great water and amusement parks like Universal Studios, Adventure Cove Park, Wave Sentosa and Kidzania, locals also look forward to enjoying the different experience from theme parks in Malaysia.
A lot of these theme parks are not so far away, just about 30 minutes to 4-hour drives. SGMaxi has had customers who travel to Malaysia and charter our Maxi Cab services, Mini bus or even 20/30/40 seater coaches for their trip. So they can bring the family and the whole gang to a fun-filled day at the theme park without worrying about petrol, parking, carrying shopping bags or having any one of the gang tired from having to drive.
If you’re up for a fun day at the theme park, SGMaxi can be your ride. Here are some of the best theme parks in Malaysia that we can take you to:
Legoland Malaysia Resort
Probably the most popular one to visit (not just by Singaporeans), is just by the border of Singapore in Nusjaya, Johor. It’s just a 30-minute drive away from Singapore!
This theme park also came to be Malaysia’s 1st international amusement park and opened in 2012, part of the Iskandar Development that also developed other theme parks and hotels.
It offers many fun-filled activities for both kids and adults, including themes like: a mini Star Wars land, Lego City and Lego Kingdom. It has also recently expanded to now include a water park for more fun. If you’re planning a visit you can check out their website’s interactive park map so you can see what they have in store for you.
Hello Kitty Town, Puteri Harbor
It’s just 10 minutes away from Legoland, and if you’re already there it’s worth a stop by. It’s a theme park that all Hello Kitty lovers and kids enjoy. They have rides, games, gift shops with unique finds, a Hello Kitty Museum and Hello Kitty Café.
Another great theme park stop is Sunway Lagoon. This theme park has won multiple awards, most recently, the Best Theme Park from Reader’s Choice Awards 2015 and given the Platinum Award from the 18th Reader’s Digest Trusted Brands Awards.
With the very wide and diverse activities it offers, and how great they are, it’s easy to see why they’ve received awards consistently since 2007 including being recognized by the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) as Asia’s Best Attraction.
Sunway Lagoon opens their Water Park, Amusement Park, Extreme park, Scream Park and Wildlife Park. They also hold the largest man-made sand surf beach in the world, a stretch of more than 13,000 square meters of sandy beach with waves that go up as high as 7 to 8 feet.
And if you’re up for some shopping, the Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall is connected to the park. And with SGMaxi as your ride, you can conveniently store your shopping bags in your chartered vehicle.
The Lost World of Tambun
This is another must see, and it truly feels like a vacation going here because it gives you a real change of environment. This theme park, managed by Sunway Group, has become the best-chosen theme park in Perak, Malaysia. The park is situated in Sunway City, Ipoh, offering a beautiful view of Ipoh’s outskirts, and is about a 4-5 hour drive from Singapore.
It features a variety of attractions including its amusement park, tiger park, tin valley and a petting zoo for kids that includes animals like raccoons, peacocks, tortoises and many more. You can also check out Kepura Cave, which is a natural cave featured as an attraction by the park since when it first opened. It is also a usual venue for private events booked with the park. Make sure to go try their Jungle Wave Pool which is named Malaysia’s biggest wave pool.
Escape Adventure Play
This park is something more reserved for those out for a real road trip, being an 8-hour drive away from Singapore, it’s one which is unique to the experience it provides. It’s the newest theme park in Penang and features exciting and unique activities like: climbing up the Gecko Tower (like a Gecko), the Tubby Racer, and Atan’s Leap, and the Zoom Bug (man-powered go Kart), and lets you get your ape on with Tarzan’s Rope.
