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! ?

Families with kids, don’t worry! 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 PlanetCredit: Capital 21 on Facebook
If you’re not up for some thrill rides or animation, you can witness world-class performances at Music Planet. Said to be the brainchild of The Great British Circus, this section will bring you circus, theatrical and music performances live on stage.
