For the thrill-seeking adults and teenagers, the Cliff Racer injects a boost of adrenaline when your mine cart flies – Indiana Jones style – straight down the speed coaster at maximum speed! Just when you think you will stop and fly through the jungle canopy, the day is saved and your tube rocks gently down to earth with the flowing water and strategically rises at the end of the slide. While you are at the wet park, don’t miss going on the longest inflatable tube ride in Malaysia! With four different slides to try, the Tube Raiders is a family-favorite as you wind your way down the top of the giant slides.

Sit back and relax as you gently float around in the 600-meter long river, passing the naturally- beautiful caves and out of the world water features. Anticipate a little surprise along the way though, as you will be greeted with waves along the way, so make sure you hold on to that tube!
