Home to colonial architecture and some of the best street food in Asia, Penang’s charm is undeniable. The small size of Georgetown—the UNESCO World Heritage Site that serves as the island’s diverse cultural center—makes it easy to explore in just one day. Here’s what you need to know.
Escape Theme Park Penang
Tues - Sun: 10am - 6pm
Jalan Teluk Bahang, Georgetown, Penang, Malaysia, 11050
ESCAPE Adventureplay comprises half of the greater ESCAPE park (the other half is a water park called Waterplay) and houses numerous fun-filled activities for both kids and adults amid Penang’s natural surroundings. The Monkey Business aerial obstacle course is a highlight; other activities include platform jumps from Atan’s Leap, downhill rides on the Tubby Racer, and the Zoom Bug kart ride.
Choose a basic admission ticket, which includes access to both Adventureplay and Waterplay, or a hassle-free park entrance ticket with one-way transportation to the park from Penang hotels.
Things to Know Before You Go
ESCAPE Adventureplay theme park is a must for families with kids and adventure travelers.
Remember to bring a sun hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen.
Wear light, comfortable clothing for sports activities, as well as sneakers or other closed-toe shoes.
Lockers are available for rent.
Most of the park’s attractions are not accessible to wheelchair users.
How to Get There
The easiest way to get to ESCAPE Adventureplay is to prebook transportation along with your entrance ticket. Alternatively, catch Rapid Penang bus 101 or 102, both of which stop in front of the park.
When to Get There
The park is open Tuesday to Sunday from 10am to 6pm. Since Adventureplay specializes in outdoor activities in a natural environment, it’s best to visit during the dry season (November to April). Expect longer wait times for activities on weekends and public holidays.
Adventureplay is only one half of the ESCAPE experience. You can also cool off at Waterplay, a water park filled with body and raft slides, a swimming pool, a lazy river, and several kid-friendly water features.
