Fun at Austin Heights Water Adventure Park

Once exams are done, we might just hop over to Austin Heights Water Adventure Park to destress again.
Look at the kids, all young and adventurous, all of them posing in front of Yellow Wall.

(Please checkout our video below too)

You can ice skate and trampoline jump at Austin Heights & Adventure Park too. How many activities are they trying to squeeze into this complex?

Kids are wondering why Water Park so quiet haha. Feels like we had the pools and slides to ourselves πŸ™‚

Please tell me this view is enchanting, for a moment, we forgot we are standing on a platform 5 or 6 storeys high.

The vast area around Taman Mount Austin is still quite undeveloped.

If your kiddos are adrenalin junkies, “Yellow Wall and SuperSurf” will keep them occupied whole day πŸ™‚
Gif of “Yellow Wall” does not look scary or steep, but trust me when I tell you that dingy feels like overturning anytime haha!

(Tip: Scream or laugh, it does help to reduce anxiety haha!)

“SuperSurf”, challenge each other and see who wins. Six to go. (Tip: to go fast, lay low)

“Splash World” for the little ones, the bucket of water is complimentary. This playground is where kids play catcher.

“Lazy River” is a wet and fun way to relax, but with our kids around, the currents will be turbulent :p
“Wave Pool” is fun too, ride the waves on your floats (not in photo)

Video (link) – Photos and videos cannot convey the amount of FUN we enjoyed at Austin Heights Water Park

Steps are steep and tall, floats are heavy. A porter parent will be helpful. (hint hint to the Dads)

Prince 33, comfortable stay with walking distance to good food (all around). We will not hesitate to recommend Prince 33 to our friends.

We will share more about Prince 33 and cafe-hopping in another post.

Ticket Prices for Water park:
Adults (12 and above) – RM 118
Child (3 to 12) – RM 98

People will compare between Austin Heights Water Park or Legoland Waterpark.
a) Price-wise very similar
b) I would say Legoland is more suitable for the smaller kids, whereas Austin Heights are for bigger kids and teenagers (Read our Legoland review here)
c) Grab the combo-tickets for more value added experience

Additional tips :
– Food and snacks are not allowed inside the water park, but the canteen does serve decent Nasi Lemak and finger food (reasonably priced).
– Lockers (two sizes) are available for full day rental (unlimited)
– Hide your GoPro well, staff have strict orders to stop your GoPro-selfie down the tubes

– Austin Heights Water Adventure Park is just 5 min walk from Prince 33 hotel
– GPS 1.561601, 103.775655 (about 20km from Woodlands checkpoint)
– Look out for latest updates and promotions on their Website and Fanpage

Paddle Fest 2016 at Anchorvale CC

Look at Boon Kang’s smile, he had so much fun at PA Paddle Fest!
Tiring too, but a sense of achievement.
kayak tryout

We had signed up for PA PaddleFest at Anchorvale CC, I thought it would be cool to expose kids to kayaking, and at a neighbourhood river.
PA water venture

There are up to 20 other kayaks in our group expedition, most are newbies.

Boon Kang went with me on the expedition (about 1.5 hours including rest), Boon Yee and Xin went for the tryouts (30 to 45 minutes)

It was a novelty for us to paddle under the bridge (TPE expressway) or so close to the mangroves.
I have always wanted to bring the kids kayaking in MacRitchie or any other reservoirs, so glad I could join them!
