Very popular is Speed Racer with multi-lane slides for visitors to ride with racing mats.

Injecting the true fun of yesteryear in a world dominated by electronics, Escape in Penang is a great destination for a fun day out with family and friends.

Nestled in the forestry of Teluk Bahang, the theme park revives the true meaning of ‘Play’ with exciting rides and games hosted in a lush natural environment – the perfect escape from the hectic urban jungle.

Sprawled over the 29-acre park are Adventureplay, offering tons of climbing & jumping, rope courses, slides, and zip-lines since its opening in December 2012; and Waterplay which opened in November 2017 with hours of splashing good times.

Adventureplay features its signature attraction Monkey Business with 10 rope courses, offering 110 challenges and zip-lines throughout the forest. On the other hand, our flying trapeze – the Aerobat – lets visitors swing across and perform somersaults in the air.

With over 140 rope courses, challenges and zip-lines, Monkey Business is one for the adventurous.

Over at Waterplay, Escape’s Banana Flip water slides release riders from a near-vertical chute, sliding down before the slide curves upwards at the end, sending them airborne and splashing into the landing pool. In addition, AquaKids Academy features various challenges on water, just like in the TV gameshow Wipeout.

Get maximum airtime on Banana Slip, the signature water-slide that releases riders from a near-vertical chute before sending them airborne to splashdown in the pool.

Escape is currently working on its third phase – Gravityplay. One of its highlights, the Hill Rider, has already opened where guests race along a downhill track on a trike. Once completed, Gravityplay will have a chairlift, as well as the Guiness World Records sanctioned world’s longest water slide at 1.05km length.

Escape hosts events, contests and shows too, in addition to the rides and attractions. Among them is the Aerobat Challenge, where guests who successfully perform the ‘catch’ on the flying trapeze will receive an Escape Challenge certificate.

There's fun aplenty on the Zoom Bug, a highly addictive self-powered kart among kids (and adults too).

Join the Fun Diving @ Atan’s Jump contest, jumping in style off the 3m springboard and 5m platform to stand a chance to win a T-shirt; and the Banana Flip Challenge, where contestants perform flips and tricks off the slide to win T-shirts too!

Be mesmerised by the International High Dive show featuring comedy acts, synchronised swimming, and the 25-metre high dive finale.

Also popular is Speed Racer with multi-lane slides for visitors to ride with racing mats.
