Unleash Your Inner Child. 6 Family Theme Parks in Asia

Unleash Your Inner Child. 6 Family Theme Parks in Asia

June 3, 2016 Travel 0 Comments

Fairies, goblins, princesses. Not the latest episode of Game of Thrones, we’re talking about a theme park. Adventure Cove, Universal Studios, Legoland Malaysia. We flock to these places, kids or no kids. Why? For our inner child, for the adrenaline, for the escape into a world of fantasy – far, far, away.

The Perfect Anti-Aging Remedy

You don’t have to be an adrenaline junkie to buy tickets to a dream world. Theme parks take us back to those carefree times when a climbing frame became a pirate ship, and a swing was a passport to the moon. Theme parks are the perfect anti-aging remedy, full of music and characters from your childhood. In just a few minutes, your cares fall away.

As we get older — and have our own kids – we’d like to think we become wiser. We learn to think ahead when it comes to planning a family holiday. Here’s our picks for the top 6 themes parks in Asia to visit with your kids. From near – to far, far away.

1. Sunway Lagoon, Malaysia

Whether you are aged 8 or 80A, this park is an award-winning one-stop place for fun,! With over 90 attractions spread across 88 acres, Sunway Lagoon provides the ultimate theme park experience in 6 adventure zones — Water ParkAmusement ParkWildlife ParkExtreme ParkScream Park & Nickelodeon Lost Lagoon– Asia’s 1st Nickelodeon Themed Land.

Pirate’s Revenge
Suspension Bridge

2. Legoland, Malaysia

Located in Johor Bahru, just across the causeway from Singapore, LEGOLAND® Malaysia brings together a LEGOLAND Park, Water Park and Hotel in one LEGO® themed location. It is a family holiday destination with more than 70 hands-on rides, slides, shows and attractions. Almost everything is hands-on, so you can push, pedal and program, or steer, squirt and splash, your way through a truly interactive experience – and of course there’s building too.

3. Kidzania, Indonesia

KidZania in Jakarta provides children and their parents a safe, unique, and very realistic educational environment that allows kids between the ages of four to twelve to do what comes naturally to them: role-playing by mimicking traditionally adult activities. As in the real world, children perform “jobs” and are either paid for their work (as a fireman, doctor, police officer, journalist, shopkeeper, etc.) or pay to shop or to be entertained.

4. Disneyland, Hong Kong

Enter a magical kingdom inspired by fairy-tale dreams and explore 7 lands—Adventureland, Grizzly Gulch, Mystic Point, Toy Story Land, Fantasyland, Tomorrowland and Main Street, U.S.A.—filled with beauty, excitement and Disney Characters.

Tip: “Although it is possible to cover the park in a single day, you would need to be there at opening (10am), then stay for the 3pm parade and fireworks at 7.30pm. Older kids might be able to handle this but for pre-schoolers and certainly toddlers, we recommend spreading the visit over at least two days. “ sassymamasg.com

5. Enchanted Kingdom, Philippines

Enchanted Kingdom opened to the public on October 19, 1995. It was and still is the first and only world-class theme park in the Philippines. The theme park boasts of rides and attractions unique to the country. The rides and attractions are located within seven zones interspersed with food and merchandise outlets, as well as various game stands that add to the “enchanting experience.”

6. Siam Park City, Thailand

Splash and fun, Siam Park City is one of Thailand’s largest theme park, covering an area of almost 120 acres and featuring a wide range of fun and exciting rides as well as  adventurous and entertainment activities in five zones such as a roller coaster that speeds 80kph and a ride that drops you from 75 meters above the ground. The main highlight of Siam Park is its water park, which is considered the world’s largest man-made, sea-like pool, favored by both kids, families and teenagers.
