How many of you remember Resorts World Genting's First World Indoor Theme Park from your childhood days?
After being closed for nearly one and a half years, the indoor entertainment space has been given new life.
Introducing Skytropolis Funland
Spreading across four floors, the newly revamped indoor theme park is a portal to a new dimension of fun covering more than 400,000 square feet
of thrilling adventures and adrenaline-packed rides!
You won't miss this space thanks to the mega large LED screens on the walls and ceiling, as well as the thousands of colourful light bulbs that deck out each ride on the ground.
With the new space, 13 rides have been introduced and another nine will follow suit. There will also be seven new cutting-edge rides for visitors to experience for the very first time!
Now, if you were an avid fan of the previous Resorts World Genting outdoor theme park, you'd be thrilled to know that 15 old favourites were brought in with a whole new look.
As these rides were a big part of almost every Malaysian's childhood, they're coming back bigger and better than ever! For example, the Super Glider, previously known as the Superman roller coaster.
Let's talk more about the rides you'll get to enjoy at the brand new Skytropolis Funland. First and foremost, the rides are divided into several categories -- Children, Family and Thrill.
For the kids, things start off merrily in the Ride ‘Em Round
, a classic carousel of pastiche elephants, lions and horses whirling around, like what you see in the movies. Then, pick up the pace in the Whirly Bugs
ride, where kids will be seated in pods rotating swiftly around a central spire. Boo Boo Bump
gives the classic bumper cars a new spin, while Loop De Loop
rotates frantically around an illuminated wrought-iron Genting Tower to screams of joy.
Adults won't feel left out with rides meant for the whole family to enjoy. First, get the adrenaline started with the Copper Express
vintage as it 'choo-choos' its way along a 61-metre track, providing a visual tour of Skytropolis Funland. Next, Space Cadets
elevates and spins passengers around for an exhilarating exploration of the solar system. Then, bring things down to earth with a regal spin on the Royal Carousel
, or stay up in the sky in emulation of Phileas Fogg
and his journey 'Around the World in 80 Days' in the Balloon Race
Adrenaline junkies can also take things up a notch in Thrill rides. Start on the ground in a super-sized version of bumper cars meant for guests who are kids at heart in Bumper Boss
. Then prepare to soar high as Sky Tower
takes guests up to the top of an Art Deco tower at a leisurely pace, only to drop them at thrilling speeds to the base.
will challenge guests’ orientation, swirling them around a disco ball on a rollercoaster track, while Spin Crazy
shows the world from very different angles where up is down and right is left, looping 360 degrees in the air around a central axis. Power Surge
is an intense high-flying ride that will have you round and round and upside down, literally.
If you love exploring the virtual reality world, this is the place for you. The VOID is a highly anticipated hyper reality experience that features cutting-edge technology and world-class content, spanning more than 7,000 square feet. It is the biggest centre out of North America and the first and biggest in Asia!
The VOID uses custom VR technology along with physical stages to create immersive experiences that inspire exploration and engagement. It comes with titles from well-loved franchises, such as Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire, Ralph Breaks VR, Ghostbusters
and an original spooky experience: Nicodemus: Demon of Evanishment.
Visitors can let their fun side loose and venture into a day of family fun at the new BigTop Video Games Park, lit with colourful light bulbs that offer limitless photo opportunities. Rest in between rides with carnival-style game kiosks, redemptions machines and video games at the 21,738 sq ft area. This circus-themed arcade at Level 2 of Skytropolis also promises the best range of cutting edge games for arcade lovers with a whopping total of 150 machines, including the Spacetime Squad Virtual Reality
game, PacMan Battle Royale

Eagle Landing Zipline
Those who have interest in heights, you can go for the Eagle Landing Zipline, which stretches 200 metres across the indoor theme park, four floors from the ground. The zip line is also the longest in a shopping mall in Malaysia! If you want to draw some attention from the people below, just scream all the way.
