Genting 2011 - a short getaway

Since we have kids 7 years ago, Genting has become our favourite spot of a short getaway.  This could be the 5th or the 6th times my 7 years old there, and the 3rd or 4th times my 5 years old there.
 They never seem to get bored with the rides.
My husband and I were just sitting at the bench, watching them queuing for one and another one of joy rides.
 Frankly, I didn't enjoy going to Genting, let me tell you why at the end of the post.
Anyway, the Rainforest splash pool park is a place worth going.
 The Theme Park has extended the operation hours to 10pm during school holiday.
April and May got to meet Genting Theme Park Mascots, Tabby the Tiger and his lovely friends at the Night Park.
Allie the Elephant. 
Joe the Orang Utan.
Brass band performance at the night parade. The band played several Christmas songs then. 
April was asked to go up to the stage at the Magic Clown Stage Show. She got to play some tricks with the clown before getting a free balloon from him.

Overall, it was a fun trip for my girls. However, my husband and I decide not to visit Genting until another 5 years. We have started to get bored of Genting.
1. April has achieved a certain height that she can't take certain rides with her baby sister. On the other hand, lil May too can't take certain rides that her big sister can.
2. There is not much improvement in the Theme Park from the past few visits that I had.
3. Those shopping outlets and restaurants in the First World Plaza are way too out if compare to the KL and Penang shopping mall. Sad to say that, I am a shopaholic, not getting enough thrill there.

Nevertheless, there are still many attractive events specially created for the kid in this school break.

  1. Hi Sheoh, glad to see your girls enjoy their holiday. We practically go there every year, sometimes 2 to 3 times to enjoy the cool temperature.
    Have a nice day.

  4. furthermore, maybe grown up already so really find nothing much exciting there.. and i don't go to the casino, so really, besides a little cooler up there, can't think of any reason to go up the hill anymore, hehe~~

  8. The only thing I don't like about Genting is the crowd. I don't mind getting bored of playing the same thing over and over again as long as Chloe is happy but I really dislike the long queues...

  9. I just don't like it when it's so crowded especially during school holidays. At the moment a lot of rides both my kids can't go on yet.

  10. I like Genting due to its weather, not very much into the games and shopping. My girl on the other hand, loves all rides. My son? He hasn't been to Genting yet :p

  11. Kids will definitely enjoy it no matter what. It's only the adults find it boring. We can only enjoy the cool weather. But guess I will still go for the children's sake.

  13. Now looks like both hubs and you gotta split taking care of children's ride when both have great difference in heights and that spoils the mood of togetherness.

  15. i think the place must be so packed during the school holidays. There was one time i went during the raya holidays , i think waited more than an hour for the cable car. Kids will enjoy themselves very much there, me..so so. But will definately try mu luck at the casino when i'm there! Merry christmas to you and your family, Yan!
