Review of A Famosa Water World

We did not have high expectations for this place. The water theme park was built in 1996 and is starting to show its age but overall we were pleasantly surprised, particularly by the park's thrilling slides. 

The park describes itself as the 'Largest Water Theme Park in Malaysia' and indeed it covers quite a large area of lush mature tropical gardens.

The main highlights are the 4 slides:

  • Family Raft Slide

This is an exciting ride on a giant inflatable ring capable of holding 3 adults or 2 adults + 2 kids with a maximum combined weight of 220kg. I would not want to exceed that maximum for fear of spinning off the slide on one of its steeply banked turns.

There was a queue lasting 10 minutes or more for this slide which was the longest time spent queuing for any of the rides.

  • Inner Tube Slide

This attraction has a choice of 4 slides side-by-side, two of which are enclosed and dark inside while the others are open top. Here you can scream your head off as your single or double seater inner tube descends through the darkened spirals.

  •  Body Slide

This is a similar jumble of coiled slides but this time you slide down without an inner tube.

  • High Speed Slide

This is the most thrilling of all, a pair of super fast slides which descend sharply from a seven-story high tower. Much too exciting for a middle-aged guy like me!

Apart from these 4 slides, the other attractions include the Lazy River (long and slow moving), a Wave Pool (too crowded during our visit), Hula Hula Slide, Wa Ha Ha (a tsunami effect ride) and a Kid's Adventure Pool.  A popular addition since our last visit is the Big Ice Cream, similar to Sunway Lagoon's Vuvuzela.

We enjoyed our visit. My daughter rates this as the 3rd best water theme park in Malaysia. The slides at A'Famosa Water World are probably the best in Malaysia however the overall standard of the facilities and appearance of the park are not as good as Sunway Lagoon or Lost World of Tambun but better than Desa Water Park (KL) and Wet World Water Park (Shah Alam).
