Enter a whole new world of magic and wonder with fun rides and thrilling adventures at Skytropolis. Under the roof of neon colors and bright lights, explore a magical space with Genting’s Highland Heroes mascots. Whether you’re an adrenaline junkie or prefer more family-friendly rides, they’ve got it all for you. Children can take a spin on the Loop de Loop miniature track ride, hop on an ornate animal or take a ride on gigantic bugs with Whirly Bugs. To spice up the action a little, kids can strap on to a colorful bumper ride in the Boo Boo Bump arena or get up high and feel the drop with the Jumping Spurs mini-drop tower. Get the whole family to join in on the fun with the Copper Express — an open-top train ride puffing its way across the floor of Skytropolis — or take on a magical horse ride with the Royal Carousel.
Now for the adrenaline junkies— you’re going to love this. Think you’re brave? Try riding the Disco!, a spinning disc ride that’ll whirl you around with increasing velocity. If that didn’t get your head spinning, take on the Spin Crazy ride. If the name doesn’t scare you yet, try being spun 360 degrees around a central tower at thrilling speeds. Want to get your adrenaline pumping whilst getting in the groove? Hop on the Music Express and get yourself rotated, pirouetted with unpredictable speed in all directions, all the while kicking it to a disco beat. And if you’re truly the bravest of them all—be lifted 30 metres in the air, before being plunged back to the ground at gravity defying speeds in Sky Towers.
5. Starlight Carnival
Go on a romantic date with your significant other or spend the evening with your family in this unique, open-air festival that takes place every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 2 November 2019. Inspired by European-style al fresco carnivals, Starlight Carnival’s got the recipe for a good time; movies, music, food and games—all in the picture-perfect setting of the Century Lake Park. Enjoy a movie under the stars with the Carnival Cinema, where blockbuster movies will be played on a supersized pop-up screen with beanbags for guests to lay back and enjoy. What’s a carnival without some food trucks? When hunger strikes, grab a bite (or several) with the variety of dining options served at the food trucks scattered across the carnival. And of course, it’s not a carnival without some fun carnival games. If you’re ready to test your luck and skills, play it out at some game kiosks like shooting some basketballs at Shooting Star, spinning the wheel for luck at Milky Way Spin, and more.
6. Train To Busan Horror House
All aboard the Train To Busan! Stopping at all stations, including the zombie-infected Seoul Station, the over-run Daejeon station platform and the toxic Chemical Cargo Train en route to Busan. Enjoy your trip, it’s one you won’t forget. Based on the blockbuster 2016 South Korean zombie apocalypse movie Train To Busan, Resorts World Genting brings you a hyper-reality horror house experience. The experience consists of several interactive areas; the first one themed around Seoul Station. You will get to experience what it’s like to be trapped in a giant train station during a zombie apocalypse, trying to reach one goal: get into the train that will take you away from this apocalyptic nightmare. Here’s the twist—the train is just as apocalyptic. Once you survive the hellish train, strap on some body armour and fight off against invading zombies—just like the ending of the actual movie.
…And this is just the beginning. So many more adventure and experiences awaits you at Resorts World Genting.
