Genting Outdoor Theme Park

This is going to be a series of posts from the Resorts World Genting trip I partook in last week, courtesy of the Resorts World people.

First up, pictures of the Genting Outdoor Theme Park. For the record, I have not been to Singapore’s Universal Studios. However, I have been to the Universal Studios in both California as well as Orlando. If there’s one thing about theme parks, it’s that you usually have to do a lot of lining up. If the queues are long, they might even snake out into the open, beyond the shelter of the ride’s waiting area.

Genting’s Outdoor Theme Park obviously isn’t as awesome as that of Universal Studios and Disneyland. But most people aren’t expecting that anyway. It’s just a nice little Theme Park, good for tourists looking for a short getaway. It does have the thriller roller coasters to satiate the dare devils, as well as placid family rides for the kiddos. For me, I just loved being outdoors in the cool, crisp mountain air. It’s been a while since I’ve stepped into a theme park, the last being in 2007, Gold Coast Australia’s Movie World and Dream World.

Always study the Theme Park map first so that you know how to maximise your time. Don’t want to spend half the day on something average, only to find out that you’ve missed the star attraction.

Water rides seem to make up more than 1/3 of the rides at Genting.

Free & Easy Trip to Resorts World Genting!

Never thought that I will be writing a post for Genting because I never thought that I would be going to Genting again! It’s not that I don’t like Genting,it’s that I can’t find people to go to Genting with me! Everyone as more or less been there at least once in their lifetime, usually as teenagers, and most people seem to remember it as a pretty run down and boring place. To tell you the truth, that’s what I remember about my trip to Genting as well nearly TEN YEARS ago. In fact, it was only a day trip for me from KL, and all I can remember is the lovely cool weather. The attractions? All I can remember is that Genting has a Casino and a Theme Park.

Since it was TEN YEARS ago that I was last there, I’ve been wanting to go back there again to give it a second chance. But as mentioned, nobody, not even my parents want to endure the journey up the winding hill. The Partner did say he would accompany me, IF I PAID.

FINE. So I prayed to the gods, and guess what, my prayers just might be answered if Nuffnang picks me to attend the Free & Easy Trip to Resorts World Genting!

I’ve been perusing their website inside out and upside down to see what would be the activities I would do there on the 3D2N stay. I’m quite amazed to say that based on what I see from the website, Resorts World Genting is completely different from what I remembered it to be all those years ago! Let me share with you some of the attractions that I really want to visit.
