A’Famosa Water Park Attractions
As mentioned, the park’s attractions are aplenty categorized into adults’, kids’, and adventurous experiences. Here’s a list of them and what you can do there:
- Wave Pool
The Wave Pool is an artificial, machine-operated pool where you can show off your surfing skills or just swim with the wave.
This is a famous attraction that visitors enjoy very much. Every time the siren wails, people scream in excitement, which can be heard across the huge water park.
- Family Raft
A group of friends or a family of up to four or five people can enjoy this water slide ride. Here, they ride on a round yellow buoy that slips and slides through the course with thrilling water splashes!
- Sandy Beach
Sandy Beach allows the guest to walk barefoot along the glistening, tiding waters. They can also relax, tan themselves, and drink iced tea while sitting in a comfortable beach chair.
- Lazy River
A slower-paced version of the Family Raft, the Lazy River allows the guest to take a dip in the pool or ride the tube that will take you around the theme park with its slow current.
- Kids Adventure
Kids Adventure is the perfect place for kids to gather and play. It has a charming and safe water playground, mini slides, and water sprays.
But, of course, parents have to watch their kids as they play to keep them safe and happy in the playground.
- Arabian Village
Arabian Village is a one-of-a-kind kids’ swimming pool adventure with an Arabian castle, slide, and a desert camel display.
It’s a great alternative to the Kids Adventure playground and ideal for friends to splash water, play, and have fun in!
For the Adventurous Crowd
- Big Ice Cream
Dare to take on the biggest and longest water slide in Southeast Asia? If so, try the Big Ice Cream, named after its ice cream and cone structure!
The slide measures 20.8 metres tall, 18.3 metres in diameter, and 108 metres long. You can invite your family here on this wild, splashy tube ride!
Hulala is an energetic water raft ride with a large tribal African mask channelling waters like a tsunami to make it even more exciting!
This ride will take you around the theme park in the relaxing background of trees and nice wall paintings.
Like the Hulala, the Wahaha ride blows tsunami-like waves at the raft riders. As you ride around the park, you can share bursts of laughter and enjoyment with friends just like the name suggests.
- Inner Tube
Feel that the slides are too easy? If you want a bit more challenge and excitement, you can try the Inner Tube slide.
When you take it on, you’ll go through a fast slide toward dark spirals with surprising twists and turns. Then, in the end, you get to the cool, fresh water!
And the High-Speed water slide lets you slide down a seven-story height at a meteor-like speed. This is an exhilarating and unforgettable slide that’s the fastest among them all here.
It’s so much fun that guests often want to do it one more time!
