If you've been following us, you'd probably know that in January, we covered about JB's upcoming indoor theme park, Capital 21 mall. 😉 Well, 9 months have passed and it's finally opened on October 17th! 😱 Credit: Giphy Sure, Malaysia has its fair share of shopping malls, but a shopping mall AND a theme park in one building? Now, that's a treat! 😍

Imagine being chased by dinosaurs, battling robots and walking through a haunted house - how's that for an adrenaline-fueled start to your experience? 😉
2. Cartoon Planet

They’re not leaving you behind :P Like the Movie Planet, Cartoon Planet also uses the same AR and VR concepts where it brings your little ones to an edutainment playland, so they can expect to see their favourite cartoon characters come to life like Tom & Jerry 😄 
3. Music Planet
