The indoor rock climbing complex is housed in a purpose built 2,100 sq.ft. gym with a number of trapezoidal climbing walls reaching 20 meters in height or the equivalent of a 5-storey building.

Skate Park & Thrill Park

Skate Park and Thrill Park at Putrajaya Challenge Park

This smooth contoured concrete surface has been specially designed to provide fun and thrills for skateboarders, inline skaters / roller blading and BMX bikers and stunt riders.

It appears to be popular with both adults and children.

Bike hire is available.

On the grassy hillside behind the skate park is the thrill park which features bike riding activities called pump track, dirt jump, north shore element and slope style jump.

I have no idea what any of these mean and it looks way too dangerous for me but I am sure younger people will know what I am talking about.

Open daily:

10am - 7pm (Monday - Thursday)

10am - 1am (Friday - Sunday)

Entrance is FREE.

Mountain Bike Trail

The remainder of the 30 hectare park is given over to customised terrain mountain bike trails. There are 9.1km of challenging MTB trail, tracking along ridges, up switchbacks and down steep hills through this former rubber and palm oil forest.

The trails are graded easy, moderate and difficult and include:

- core trail loop

- XC loop

- downhill

- downhill fun ride

- free cross

- slope style line

The inaugural Putrajaya Challenge 2011 mountain bike race was held at the end of April 2011 with participants from nine countries. According to the winner of the cross country event 'the trail is very technical and considered the best in Asia'.

Open daily, 10am - 7pm.
