    Outdoor fountain and flower nursery

    Flower fountain at Genting Highlands, Malaysia
    2 more images

    Favorite thing: There is an impressive outdoor fountain and flower nursery just next to the outdoor theme park. You cannot miss it because there are so many colourful and huge flowers on dispaly. Due to the cool and dry climate of Genting Highlands, there are many temperate plants and flowers which are grown here which are otherwise not possible in the tropical and humid weather of Malaysia. This is not to be missed and more photographs are at the travelogue section of this VT page.

    Genting Highlands through the years (part 1)

    Genting Highlands years ago, Malaysia
    4 more images

    Favorite thing: I have been to Genting Highlands several times since I was young (about 10 years old) and have seen the tranformation and expansion of the place into a huge entertainment centre. Genting Highlands is perhaps my first travel out of Singapore as my family could not afford trips to destinations too far away from Singapore then. Genting Highlands has always been a favourite place for the locals as well as Singaporeans who went there mainly for the casino (for the adults) and the various games, rides, arcades (for the children). Genting Highlands always upgrade itself and expand and this is a very good move to attract repeated tourists back here as there is always something new coming up. Attached are some photos of Genting Highlands about 20 years ago when I visited during my younger days :)

    You Should Be Early On Holidays

    LINE UP FOR THE CHAIR LIFT
    2 more images

    Favorite thing: Well I experienced waiting and standing in queue for more than an hour since it was a holiday.....oh My God it was very very tiring when you are alone ....no body to talk to you and you are only seeing tired faces. I would suggest just plan before you visit this place : it should be early in the morning because waiting to mount the chair lift is boring. While coming back there was no problem.

    Fondest memory: Queue up for the sky chair lift

    Cool weather and relaxing atmosphere

    Genting Highlands, Malaysia
    3 more images

    Favorite thing: One of the best things I like about Genting Highlands is the cool weather and relaxing atmosphere. In-between the casinos and theme parks, you can always go outdoor, sit at the benches and watch the world go by in the cool and foggy weather. No wonder a lot of locals and people from Singapore come here to escape from work and the hot tropical weather :)

    Cyclone

    by imstress Written Jan 28, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cyclone

    Favorite thing: Cyclone is a rollercoaster with "big" thrills!

    The is a minimum height requirement of 122cm (4 feet) to take the rollercoaster.

    It is a very intense ride that may not be suitable for those who are faint-hearted.

    The cyclone or Zyklone Z40 was built in Pinfari, Italy.

    The thrills last for about 1 minute.

    Corkscrew

    Favorite thing: Corkscrew is the only double-loop roller coaster in Malaysia that speeds and spins up to a height of 90 feet above the ground.

    Hold on tight as you dive, plunge and escalate on the Corkscrew.

    There is a minimum height requirement of 122cm (4 feet).

    Favorite thing: Genting Highlands can be very confusing at first, but this place has very good and informative signboards and maps to guide you to the various attractions. Besides Malay language, the signboards are also in English and Chinese. The map can be obtained at the various hotels at Genting Highlands.

    The colours of Genting Highlands, Malaysia
    1 more image

    Favorite thing: Just like other theme parks and entertainment centres, there are lots of colours in Genting Highlands, both at the indoor and outdoor theme parks. Personally I think the colour sense of the Genting Highlands as a whole is very pleasing and good.

    Ghosts of casino

    by l_joo Updated Apr 16, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Addicted gamblers of Malaysia very much believe the casino has countless miniature ghosts in invisible form which the owner trained to make gamblers lose money. I dislike gamble but I enjoy telling this ghost’s story to tourists, hehehe. Head must be covered with newspaper when entering the casino of Genting so they (little ghosts) won’t notice your existence, and you will win. Bring sweets to feed them (little ghosts). Sprinkle sweets underneath where you play, to feed them (little ghosts), this way, you sure win. Try shouting the name of the casino owner Mr. Lim Goh Tong, it will help as well. A tip for cureless gamblers.

    Matahari Outdoor Ferris Wheel

    Favorite thing: Take a ride on the Matahari Outdoor Ferris Wheel.

    Have fun basking in the sun as the colourful ballon takes you up on a leisurely ride.

    The 14 units of Gondol that was made in Italy can take 56 paxs.

    Rollercoaster Ride

    by hassan_abu Written Apr 8, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    scary or not?

    Favorite thing: A trip to any theme park will not be complete without riding a rollercoaster, even a small one, but this small one is enough to make the kids scream at the top of the lungs. For me, well...it was a very mild one.

    Genting

    Favorite thing: Genting has a soothing climate unlike the hot and humid conditions in Kuala Lumpur. There is a large amusement park and casino built here.

    You can take the 1-hour taxi ride from Kuala Lumpur for around RM45-60, pending on the taxi driver's mood.
