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?

大舅’s family will swim with us today. Are you ready for some thrills or to beat the heat?

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

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 🙂
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.

*updated 2019 – Prince 33 might not be so desirable now. The Hotel stay is still decent, but you will not find parking lots anymore due to explosion of activities in Mount Austin

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

1 staycation 2 Birthdays

We stayed over at Johor over the Christmas weekend. Johor Bahru is so near it feels more like a Johor staycation.

Our Birthday and Christmas boy, Boon Wee celebrated his Birthday near Sutera Mall (Taman Sutera Utara).

Sutera Mall for our Dinner and celebration. There are a lot of eateries and entertainment to explore around this area.
Sutera Mall

So happy that 大舅 and Heng family can join us 🙂

Boon Yee’s Birthday (27 Dec) celebration at Saizeriya. It does not take a lot to make him happy, Boon Yee is always so sweet, he will make sure everyone has a portion before serving himself 🙂

What else did we do during our staycation in Johor Bahru?
Kids love sports, be it outdoor or in arcade 🙂

Xin’s cheeky Gokart debut.

Kart group 🙂 Read our previous Fun review from Plentong.

Souvenirs 叉燒酥 from Ming An (明安 is opposite KSL)
Johor Bahru

Kids had a lot of memories with these balls and tortoises!

Singaporeans normally gather around KSL and City Square area (2). If we drive out another 30 minutes, more Food and adventure awaits.

3- Plentong Go Kart (previously known as Permas Jaya)
4- Mount Austin, this area is hip and packed with niche F&B outlets (Do pop by Hazel’s sweet cafe review)
5- Sutera Mall is a convenient one-stop venue for shopping and eating. Its backyard neighbourhood is very happening in the evenings. We follow BPDG’s hotel and food recommendations 🙂
6. Before heading back to SG, we drove to Gelang Patah (near Legoland) for Seafood lunch
