The theme parks are open! With interstate travel now allowed all over Malaysia, it’s the perfect time to plan for an outing with your family and friends. If you’re bored of merely hanging out at malls or at each other’s homes, you should definitely check out these theme parks. Theme parks are a popular tourist destination loved by many, regardless of age, after all.
But do note that only those who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 are allowed to visit theme parks. Children 17 years old and below do not need to be vaccinated as long as they are accompanied by a fully vaccinated adult.
1. Sunway Lagoon, Selangor
Who hasn’t heard of Sunway Lagoon, a popular water theme park in Sunway City, Subang Jaya? Sunway Lagoon, like any other water theme park, has a range of exhilarating water slides.
Sunway Lagoon’s most well-known attractions includes the Vuvuzela, Little Zimbabwe, Waterplexx 5D, Surf Beach, and many others. Following its reopening on 7 October, Sunway Lagoon debuted a new attraction called Camp Out! at Sunway Lagoon. This is definitely an experience not to be missed.
2. Legoland, Johor
Legoland in Iskandar Puteri reopened on 14 October with a new attraction, Planet Legoland, together with its existing attractions — its Theme Park, Water Park, Hotel, and Sea Life Malaysia.

In conjunction with the reopening, the resort is offering some attractive deals that include complimentary stays at the Legoland Hotel and F&B vouchers with purchases of its park passes and hotel stay.
3. The TOP, Penang
A literal tower of entertainment, The TOP reopened its doors and welcome guests again on 8 October.

The TOP opened five attractions — The Rainbow Skywalk, Jurassic Research Center, The Top Boutique Aquarium, Penang State Galley, and Durian King of Fruits Gallery. They’re not welcoming guests to experience their new Family Fun Day Rewards package worth RM1,054 that includes Unlimited Entry to ALL Attractions and TAPAULAH Lunch for a family of two adults and two kids for a special price of only RM400.
