SplashMania – First-Ever Water Park in Malaysia to have a VR Slide!

Deciding where to go for a family day trip can be a daunting task. Sometimes, the easiest options are the ones closer to home with entertainment that everyone can enjoy. Well, situated in Gamuda Cove, Selangor (just 35 minutes’ drive from Kuala Lumpur), SplashMania Waterpark is the perfect destination for a family day out! The water park was officially launched on 2nd July 2023 by Selangor Menteri Besar, Dato’ Seri Amirudin bin Shari, marking the opening of the water park at full capacity.

1) Extreme Adventure
2) Thrill Adventure

Here are a few of the park’s signature rides and attractions:
Atlantis VR – Malaysia’s first Virtual Reality (VR) Slide
To experience this one-of-a-kind slide, riders were asked to wear the VR headgear before embarking on the ride, where they would be transported into a 250-metre virtual journey through the Lost City of Atlantis. We found this slide to be a truly unique experience, a must-try since this is Malaysia’s first VR Slide!

Monsta & Twista – SplashMania’s wildest high-speed slides
These 2 high-speed slides promise riders an adrenaline-pumping ride through curved tubes of various twists and turns, heart-stopping drops, plus quick spins into tilted bowl slides. Both slides were hair-raising for us but very enjoyable to ride.

Race down this multi-flume slide with 3 other friends/family members to see who reaches the finishing line first. A very fun slide if you are feeling competitive.

The Plunge
Definitely not for the faint hearted, this steep slide is angled at 78 degrees and will send riders swooshing down at high speed from the top of the Amazonia Ship about 6 storeys high. Needless to say, we weren’t brave enough to try this slide but were delighted watching other visitors having fun. LOL!

Amazonia Ship
Climb up the impressive multi-levelled ship to recreate the iconic “Titanic Experience” at the ship’s bow and take in amazing views of the whole water park from its top deck. We were happy to get stunning Insta-worthy shots from up here. Coming soon on the ship are pay-per-ride attractions such as the Sky Leap (bungee jump from captain’s deck) and Zoomi’s Runway (enjoy the views of the water park while zooming across it from the ship’s deck).

Child-friendly slides
SplashMania has plenty to offer kids too. The Kids Adventure Zone features mini versions of the water slides such as Mini Mania, Mini Monsta including Tiny Twista. The huge and colourful Treasure Tower is Malaysia’s tallest water play structure made up of multiple types of fun water slides enough to keep your kids occupied.
