Do you want to know what are the top 13 things to do in Resorts World Genting? When I visited Resorts World Genting last year in May 2018, I had an awesome time checking out a number of attractions. The indoor Theme Park, Skytropolis Funland was still under construction back then hence I vowed to myself that I need to come back again when it is opened to public. And so I did! I went for a 3D2N trip on 22 to 24 Feb 2019 to check it out and also to revisit some of the attractions again cos they left such wonderful memories. Also there were a lot of first time experiences for me as well, from going into the fully immersive hyper reality experience at The Void to screaming my lungs out on the ride in the indoor theme park, to ‘flying’ from one end of the indoor theme park to the other end on the Zipline, to a special screening of the latest hit blockbuster movies in IMAX and DBOX Hall and to ending the trip with a party 6,000 feet high! Read my recommendations below on the top 13 things to do in Resorts World Genting so that you are well prepared for the fun when you go there.
Skytropolis Funland in Resorts World Genting
The Skytropolis Funland is spread across four floors is nothing but colourful and vibrant. With mega large LED screens on the walls and even on the ceiling (over 50 meters in length) that light up the park, the new Skytropolis promises an unforgettable time for the whole family.
Everyone in the family can enjoy themselves throughly here. I like the fact that Skytroplis Funland is divided into Child, Family and Thrill categories so that I know which rides I can go for.
For children, things can start off merrily in the Ride ‘Em Round, a classic carousel of pastiche elephants, lions and horses, whirling around at speed. Pick up the pace in the Whirly Bugs ride, where kids will be seated in pods rotating swiftly around a central spire. Boo Boo Bump provides a spin on the classic bumper cars, while Loop De Loop rotates frantically around an illuminated wrought-iron Genting Tower to shrieks of joy. Kid-friendly drop
tower Jumping Spurs with mild drops and climbs will be added soon.
Adults can get in on the fun as well, with rides meant for the whole family to enjoy. First, get the adrenaline started with the Copper Express vintage as it ‘choo-choos’ its way along a 61m track, providing a visual tour of Skytropolis Funland. Space Cadets elevates and spins passengers around
for an exhilarating exploration of the solar system. Bring things down to earth with a regal spin on the Royal Carousel, or stay up in the sky in emulation of Phileas Fogg and his journey Around the World in 80 Days in the Balloon Race.
For the brave one, you can also take things up a notch in Thrill rides, which up the ante in terms of adrenaline. Start on the ground in a super-sized version of bumper cars meant for guests who are kids at heart in Bumper Boss, then prepare to soar high. Sky Tower takes guests up to the top of an Art Deco tower at a leisurely pace, only to drop them at thrilling speeds to the base. Disco! will challenge guests’ orientation, swirling them around a disco ball on a rollercoaster track, while Spin Crazy shows the world from very different angles where up is down and right is left, looping 360 degrees in the air around a central axis. Power Surge will is an intense high-flying ride that will have you round and round and upside down, literally.
The VOID in Resorts World Genting
Have you ever hope to be one of the characters in some of the movies? Well, at The Void, your dream will come true!
The VOID offers a highly anticipated hyper reality experience that features cutting-edge technology and world-class content which spans more than7000 square feet. This is the biggest centre out of North America and
the first and biggest in Asia. The VOID uses custom VR technology along with physical stages to create immersive experiences that inspire exploration and engagement.
The VOID includes titles from well-loved franchises such as Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire, Ralph Breaks VR, Ghostbusters and their own original spooky experience: Nicodemus: Demon of Evanishment.
I went for two of the games where I got to hold weapons and shot enemies virtually. It was as if I were part of the scenes and if I got shot, I could feel the vibrations on the jacket that I was wearing. Teamwork is also involved as you group up with others to play.
EAGLE LANDING ZIPLINE in Resorts World Genting
I am someone who is extremely afraid of heights so initially I was hesitant about trying this. But when I saw people getting suited up and stepping off the platform, I had this urge to try it. The Eagle Landing Zipline, stretching 200 metres across the indoor theme park, four floors from the ground, is the longest zipline in a shopping mall in Malaysia while it offers a one-of-a-kind view of the indoor theme park. To be frank, the moment I went onto the platform, I asked myself, “Why did I choose to do this?” Luckily the staff were very assuring and asked me to ‘sit’ down on the safety harness and when I was ready, they slowly let go. All I could remembered as screaming my head off at the initial start and as I zipped over, I kinda enjoyed the view from the top.
Tickets are at RM31 for one rider, RM25 for two riders and RM19 for 4 riders. A weight and height limit applies for participants. This attraction are great for adrenaline junkies who love to whizz through, high above everyone.
The SkySymphony show
I can’t help but be amazed by the awesome digital entertainment found in the mall, Times Square. It houses a three-storey high giant LED screens which synchronizes with the SkySymphony show. I wonder how the 1,001 winch kinetic balls can move to form shapes to support the story’s premise or trajectory and create such an amazing 3D effect to the presentation on the screen.
There are four inaugural shows – Forest, Urban Symphony, The Goddess, Ocean Groove with Maestro Ning and Jungle Jam that allows visitors to immerses into panoramic sight and sound presentations. So make sure you catch the shows when you are there!
The Alive Museum in Resorts World Genting
This is a place where dreams come true. The trick art museum is an optical
illusion park where skilful brush strokes, careful details and amazing choice of colours result in the wonderful 3D images. This place is indeed very instagrammable!
Visitors will be blown away by the world of imagination created by the murals that cover almost every inch of the space with imaginary scenes such as a UFO and prominent landmarks such as the Gwanghwamun Square in Seoul.
The 4D Trick Art Museum is a must-visit for those wanting to add something special to their social media.
Zombie Outbreak in Resorts World Genting
Zombie Outbreak is definitely not for the faint hearted. The moment I enter the abandoned house, I got to experience what it is like to be one of the last survivors of a nightmare Zombie Apocalypse.
The route to exit was spread out like a maze with a new terror awaiting at every turn, keeping me on the edge as zombies consumed with a ravenous desire for human flesh were everywhere. With the zoombies whining and screaming, definite horrors await within with only one way out and no turning back.
Jurassic Research Center in Resorts World Genting
Whether you are a movie fan or not of the movie series Jurassic Park, you are bound to be impressed by this attraction. It is the answer to everyone’s childhood dreams with massive figures of different species of dinosaurs spread throughout the centre such as the Brachiosaurus, the Triceratops or even the sabre-toothed tiger.

Bona Cinemas- New IMAX and Gold Class with D-Box Halls in Resorts World Genting
The movie I watched was Alita and besides the amazing storyline, I was blown away by the whole movie watching experience with the addition of IMAX and Gold Class with D-BOX.
IMAX technology, derived from the words Image Maximum, is widely considered the gold standard in motion picture immersion, able to capture images of greater size and resolution to bring even the smallest
of details and sounds to life with a visceral punch.
I am also impressed by the cinema’s Gold Class with D-BOX hall that seats up to 48 viewers. This was my first time trying this technology and it was mind blowing. Each seat is equipped with the D-BOX patented motion system with four levels of intensity control, which swivels and
tilts on a two-axis configuration to truly bring the viewer into the thick of the action. Together with the latest Dolby Atmos audio system which provides a three-dimensional sound, it makes me feel like I am part of the scene too.
Bona Cinemas is located on Level 1 of SkyAvenue mall in Resorts World Genting.
