Genting Skyway

Reviewed By Mohd Taha A - Jeddah, Saudi Arabia

Very nice experience with the family .. the sceneries are beautiful .. The sound effects added to the action .. however the photographers at the riding station were taking pictures of the passengers without their consent which I found inappropriate ..
The late afternoon ride down was with the clouds all around the cable car for the first part of the journey .. Nice experience.
The new cable cars are bigger to accommodate more passengers up to 10 persons; and having wider windows for better viewing.
Overall experience is good.

Genting Highlands Premium Outlets

Reviewed By Adnan-Almuslem - Al Hofuf, Saudi Arabia

Good outlet mall to visit and enjoying the nice mall location, the brand shops and the various restaurants and cafes. Discounts are limited, yet you still can find some goods with low prices. You can combine the trip to this outlet mall with riding the cable car to genting highlands. The cheapest way to travel to the mall is using the public bus from Kuala Lumpur central station, as the taxi is very expensive.

Genting Highlands Theme Park

First World Indoor Theme Park under renovation.

Reviewed By Sunil K - New Delhi, India

Genting Highland Theme Park is currently under construction and without the adventure of theme park rides its very difficult to spend more then 2 - 3 hours in Genting. There is big multi story mall there which also have big Casino but off course Mall and Casino are very basic attraction which you can find in your own city as well.
Genting is mainly popular of their theme park rides which are under construction since last two years and will take one more year as per information I received at Genting during my visit.

Ripley's believe it or not, shops and other attractions at First World Plaza is currently closed down for renovations. I guess the renovations will be completed by next year. I hope they will upgrade more facilities and more interesting things to see.

Genting Bowl - Glow in the Dark Bowling

Reviewed By Jonathan Y

This bowling alley, shops and the other attractions at Genting Plaza is now closed. This is because, the whole area is currently doing renovation. I was very disappointed when I noticed that the whole place was covered up. I will usually come here for my bowling activity every time when I visit Genting Highlands, but not this time.
