Langkawi adventure theme park expecting school holiday crowd


Cycling 21m above ground on a Skybike with the Kilim Geoforest Park in Langkawi as a backdrop will certainly make for a memorable ride.

VISITORS to the island can take part in all kinds of exciting activities at Langkawi Adventure & Xtreme Park, which has reopened.

Located about a kilometre from Kilim Geoforest Park, the adventure park offers a variety of family-oriented activities.

Park manager Mohamad Firdaus Ahmad Yusri, 29, is optimistic that the school holidays will see more adventure seekers trying out the thrills offered.

Among the highlights is Langkawi’s first adrenaline-pumping Skybike, which will see visitors riding a bicycle suspended 21.3m in the air.

Firdaus said the 200m-long suspension bicycle ride was introduced after he and his wife saw Skybike activities during a trip to Bandung, Indonesia, in 2016.

“I thought it would be interesting to introduce it here,” he said.

He obtained permission to build it from the theme park’s owner and the attraction was finally opened in 2017.

“The maximum weight for visitors who want to try out the Skybike is 90kg while the minimum height required is 140cm,” he said.

Other activities at the park include riding all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), shooting paintball, go-kart racing, horse and pony riding as well as archery.

Visitors can also enjoy the 7D cinema, flying fox, ghost house, upside-down museum and 3D museum.

Firdaus said the park also offered team-building facilities.

“Presently, only 150 visitors are allowed at any one time instead of the usual 250.

“I hope the Covid-19 pandemic will be over soon so that activities can return to normal in Langkawi,” he said. — By IMRAN HILMY
