The First World Plaza indoor theme park cum shopping complex features a series of fun rides and six theme areas named after famous cities and landmarks from around the world – France (Champs Elysees), England (London), Italy (Venice), America (Times Square and Universal Walk), Switzerland (Swiss Alps) and Malaysia (Genting Walk).
In Genting’s Venice, you can cruise on a canal in the Venice Gondola Ride before hopping over to London to ride the Ferris Wheel beside the mini Big Ben. Around the corner are Universal Walk, Times Square and replicas of the Statue of Liberty and the Oscar trophy. A mini Eiffel Tower and a mini Arc de Triomphe make up the France theme. The suspended overhead rides such as the Euro Express, Reindeer Cruiser, Rio Float and the Monorail provide an excellent bird’s eye view of the bustling First World indoor theme park that extends over four levels.
The Snow World at the Swiss Alps features a log cabin, an igloo, toboggan slides and snow play area. It’s cold in here so remember to wear warm clothing. Children will surely love the Rainforest Splash Pool as the pool is filled with warm water even though the air all around is chilly.
To the adventurous: Are you ready to fly? The First World Plaza also boasts the Genting Sky Venture, the only free fall skydiving simulator in Asia, and to challenge you further is the Genting X-pedition Wall, an international-standard rock climbing wall stretching 10 to 15 metres in height, with a 6-metre overhang. Then get ready to scream on the Haunted Adventure Funicular Train that travels up a 45-degree slope into the Horror House.
You and your friends can next have a friendly game at the 28-lane Genting Bowl or at the Q-bowl, where the game is similar to pool. More entertainment awaits at the Funtasy World video arcade and the Cineplex. With 48 retail and 52 food/drinks outlets at the First World Plaza, there will never be a dull moment.
Over 30 rides can be enjoyed in the Outdoor Theme Park. Thrill-seekers will want to try all four roller coaster rides – the Double Loop Corkscrew, Rolling Thunder Mine Train, Cyclone and Flying Dragon. The brave will also want to ride the Spinner Flying Carousel, the Super Toboggan, and the intense Turbo Drop that drops 185 feet down and then instantly shoots upwards. On the Sungai Rejang Flume Ride and at the Genting Splash, the only water park experience available at 6,000 feet (2,000 metres) above sea level, be prepared to get wet. Hey, it’s part of the fun!
There are numerous children’s rides and family rides including the Monorail and Theme Park Skyway cable cars. Younger children can enjoy rides such as the Flying Baby Jumbo, Teacup, Pirate Train, Rodeo Rider and Astro Fighter. The Indoor Theme Park boasts three more thrill rides – Space Odyssey, Disco Bumper and the Motion Master Simulator that maneuvers around sharp turns and dives into deep gorges. A rich variety of skill games and video games are also available for your enjoyment until late at nights.
