Those looking for more reasons to add Penang to their list of year-end holiday destinations to visit can look forward to new additions to ESCAPE Penang. Besides having the world’s longest water slide and world’s longest zip coaster, as part of its recent 10th anniversary celebrations, ESCAPE Penang has unveiled two new attractions. And they’re both a first of their kind for Malaysia!
The only ski slope in Malaysia is a 302-metre-long, downhill, outdoor man-made slope built of a unique material that makes skis and snowboards glide smoothly — even without snow. The Ski Slope, built atop a former road at the Teluk Bahang Dam building site, is an example of Sim Leisure Group’s innovative spirit and dedication to protecting the natural world.
All of the park’s attractions, including this one, were built using recycled materials and green practises to minimise their impact on the park’s ecosystem.
Dead Sea Pool
Meanwhile, the Dead Sea Pool, is styled after the well-known Salt Lake in Jordan. The high salinity of the pool water makes floating effortless for visitors. Fun, relaxing, and hey, you won’t even need to know how to swim to enjoy and kick back (of course, learning to swim is a life skill and care should always be taken if you can’t)!
ESCAPE Penang and ESCAPE Challenge in Petaling Jaya are the two theme parks that now carry the ESCAPE name. New ESCAPE Parks are scheduled to open in Ipoh and Cameron Highlands, and the brand will soon expand beyond Malaysia with a park in Sri Lanka and more under construction in Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and China.
