Opened on December 2015, Austin Heights Water & Adventure Park is one of the newest themeparks in Johor Bahru, Malaysia. This 3-in-1 park caters to anyone of all ages, i would definitely recommend this place for family day or friends outing!
The most convenient way to get there is by car. On a clear traffic road, you can easily get to Austin Heights Water & Adventure Park within 25-minutes drive from City Square Mall. You can find directions from here.
Our initial plan was to take a public bus (Bus BET6/ BeXTRA6) from JB Sentral Bus Terminal. The chart on bus terminal stated that the bus interval is every 30-minutes and the journey will take about 1-hour+. We waited patiently for 40-minutes and decided to ask the bus conductor for the bus timing. He told us the bus won’t be here for another 1-hour or more! In the end we called for Grab which cost us RM15 (USD4).
1. Adventure Park
At the entrance, you will be greeted by the 2-tier of obstacles courses (5-meters & 9-meters) before seeing the ticketing counter.
This high elements course has 7 course routes with 51 different obstacles. There are 2 areas where the adventure rope course lies: one outside the entrance of the park (sheltered) and the other facing the water park (outdoor). You will begin with a mock obstacle course being taught how to use the equipment (Karabina & Safe Roller) and maneuver along the safety lines. They even had a mini zip line where we were taught to zip down safely.
Sheltered: Loop 1 to Discover, proceed to Loop 2 & 3 to Explore and Navigate. Loop 4 for the Challenger.
Outdoor: Hop on to Tarzan Swinger at Loop 5 & 6. Do a Big Zipper at Loop 7 to complete your course!
There were only 2 of us monkeying around and took us 2.5-hours to complete all 7 courses.
Entrance Fee: RM80 (USD20)
Operation Hours: 1000hrs – 1800hrs
2. Water Park
At one glance, the water park isn’t as huge as most slides are concentrated on two main towers of different levels. These slides will end at the splash pool leading to lazy river, thus the floats used for slides can also be used in lazy river. Overall, it’s still a fun park to spend soak up your day!
As it was a quiet Monday, we spent less than 2-hours playing some slides twice, lazing around the river and waiting for the waves.
Entrance Fee: RM80 (USD20)
Operation Hours: 1000hrs – 1900hrs
We were very lucky to find out the online promotion the night before visiting the park: RM90 (USD23) for combo tickets with both adventure and water park!!! (Usual price for this combo is RM150)
3. Sports & Leisure Park
One day is not enough to do everything in this place! Sports & Leisure Park consists of 3 activities: Ice Skating, “Go-Kart” and indoor trampoline.
Till next time!
