Genting Things To Do
With theme parks, casinos, luxury hotels, and plenty of entertainment for kids, the resort destination of Genting in Malaysia has no shortage of attractions and things to do.
Genting Indoor Theme Park and Genting Outdoor Theme Park
Genting has both an outdoor theme park and an indoor theme park. The original outdoor theme park closed in September 2013 and has been replaced by a new park called 20th Century Fox World. Other attractions include the First World Indoor Theme Park, which features Sky Venture, Genting Bowl, SnowWorld, Vision City, and Funtasy World Video Game Park.
The indoor theme park features a trip around the world, with themed attractions for France, England, Italy, America, Switzerland, and Malaysia. You can enjoy a romantic gondola ride or even test your skills at rock climbing at the Genting indoor theme park. Free shows often take place out in the open for the guests.
Of particular note at the indoor theme park is SnowWorld: Admission gives visitors a 30-45 minute session, jacket and boots rental, and access to a 90-meter toboggan slide, log cabin, lovers’ benches, and snow-covered decor.
Genting Shopping and Dining
The First World Plaza is a bustling location for guests who want some more entertainment. This includes restaurants, shops, a cinema, an interactive horror exhibit, and a Ripley’s Believe It Or Not. Shops are mid- to high-end stores, and restaurants offer a variety of options for all tastes. The Genting indoor theme park is located within the First World Plaza, so if you are planning your itinerary, it might be good to do these on the same day.
