There's more to Penang than just delicious halal breakfast spots and private pool accommodations. If you're planning to go on a foodie's road trip to Penang, there are many fun attractions to explore too, including the famous ESCAPE Theme Park! Ready to discover the amazing things you can do at this awesome theme park in Penang? Let's go!

Situated in Tanjung Bungah, Penang, the early chapters of ESCAPE Theme Park was a challenging one. Inspired by founder Sim Choo Kheng's playful childhood in a traditional kampung, this theme park overcame numerous financial obstacles before realising their vision in two stages - Escape Adventureplay in November 2012 and the entire theme park (together with Escape Waterplay) in 2019.

Today, ESCAPE Theme Park has grown to become one of the best theme parks in Malaysia with over 30 thrilling activities surrounded by lush nature. Perfect for family and friends, you can enjoy a wide range of activities including exciting water slides, challenging rope courses, fun swings and more.

While there are many things to discover at ESCAPE Theme Park, a few attractions stand out from the rest such as the Slingshot that'll launch you into the air and the Monkey Business that tests your balancing skills on a tricky rope course. Not forgetting the Three Sixty that challenges you with a daring swing.

Besides that, there's also the crowd-favourite Tubby Racer where you can sit on tubes and slide down the trail. You can even link all these tubby tubes together with your family and friends, so you can experience this slide together!

If you're ready for a whirlwind adventure, make your way to the world's longest tube water slide! Stamped by the Guinness World Records, the aptly-named The Longest slide measures 1,111 meters and will take you through the lush tree canopies for a four-minute slide adventure! Did you know that this slide is three times longer than the previous world record holder, the Galaxy Erding in Germany?

For a splashing fun time with the kids, put on your best swimwear and explore more slides! There's the Speed Racer where you go down a multi-coloured slide, the Play House that's suitable for all ages, and the Wave Ball that lets you jump through waves.
