About Escape Penang
Opposite Entopia Butterfly Park on Jalan Teluk Bahang:
Escape Penang is 15 km from the heart of Georgetown along the coastal area of Batu Ferringhi.
The outdoor park offers both wet and dry rides in a natural setting of 44 acres. There are more than 30 exciting activities such as water slides, zip lines, high ropes courses, etc.
And unlike Sunway Pyramid Theme Park, Escape Theme Park has novel rides for many riders at one go!
The emphasis here is on the self-directed play. That means you’re in charge of navigating through challenging tasks. Furthermore, once you start, there’s no turning back!
Energetic and friendly staff keep things fun. We couldn’t help but join the crowd for the chicken dance activity!

What To Wear At Escape Penang
In the dry section of the park (where the adventure and gravity-defying games take place):
You must wear closed-toe shoes to protect your feet.
Wear comfortable clothes suitable for a workout or hike. Because strapping on a harness with tight clothes can cause unnecessary chaffing!
In the wet park, get suited in proper swimwear.
For ladies, a one-piece swimsuit, bikini, or Muslimah swimwear is fine. Men should equip themselves with board shorts, swim trunks, or surfwear.
Babies must have their swim diapers on.
PS: If you did not bring your own swimwear, the Escape Penang store sells and rent swimwear for a fee (see pricing chart below).

Ease Of Parking At Escape Park

You can drop your group off first at the main entrance, and then drive down the same road to the open-air car park.
Attractions At Escape Penang
There are more than 30 rides to discover at Escape Penang, and here are our top picks!
1. Tubby Race
Starting from higher ground, Tubby Race begins with a scenic open-air cable seat ride. The ride traverses over towering trees. It’s heartwarming to learn that no trees were cut down to build the ride.
You can experience the Tubby Race alone or in a group of up to 6 riders. For many riders, the staff will link several Tubby tires together for awesome family fun!
The first tire will have water, and the ride operator even lubricates the base to cut friction and maximize speed! We expected the ride to be very bumpy, but it was smoother than expected!
Young children can participate in the Tubby Race as long as the youngest child sits in front with an adult right behind.
2. Monkey Business At The The Rope Course
Monkey Business is a rope course with 3 levels (beginner, intermediate, and advanced). The park attendant recommends newbies take the beginner course. Because you will have to use all your muscles!
Your adventure begins after the guide secures the harness and pulley system. The latter is your lifeline during the 40-minute course.
Through the course, you will walk on tight ropes and wooden planks. You will also have to crawl through a wooden tube and zipline across treetops.
If a panic attack strikes you mid-way, there is unfortunately no ladder to climb back down. Hence, this is a course you must finish once you’ve started!
3. World’s Longest Zip Coaster
Measuring 1,135 meters:
Swallow your fears and buckle up to enjoy a panoramic view of the park’s lush greenery with this ride!
The 6-minute zipline ride has exhilarating drops, steep climbs, and unsuspecting turns.
As another self-directed adventure game, don’t forget to jerk the handle of the zipline. This helps in case you stop mid-way.
4. World’s Longest Tube Waterslide
The longest tube waterslide at Escape Penang sees two riders sharing an inflatable raft. It is where you whiz down 1,111 meters of sheer fun!
Note: There is a covered and an open water slide. The covered version accelerates faster, but it is not too scarry for newbies
5. First and only Ski Slope in Malaysia
Escape Penang offers a dry ski slope where you can try skiing and snowboarding in a safe environment.
The 302-meter-long ski slope consists of two sections. The section for beginners has straight stretches and one simple curve.
While the section for experienced skiers has a steeper incline with daring descents.
6. Dead Sea Pool
For a calmer activity, take a dip in the Dead Sea Pool. Introduced in November 2022, this new addition features mineral-rich water. It is easy to float on the water even if you can’t swim.
This attraction takes inspiration from the famous salt lake in Jordan. The relaxing experience has natural health benefits and is only 4 meters deep.
7. The Gecko Tower
The Gecko Tower is a multi-façade rock climbing wall. There are 3 routes designed for beginners, intermediate and professional climbers.
Escape Penang uses an auto belay system. So even if you slip, you will slowly float down to safety.
This vertical tower protrudes approximately 50 meters above land. And hence, it is a test of agility and technique. But it is high on the fun factor too!
Challenge your friend to a duel by scaling up the walls together. The first to press the buzzer on top wins.
Food At Escape Penang
Escape Penang’s sole restaurateur is A&W.
Hence, after playing, you can fuel up on delicious coney dogs, waffles, and have root beer floats.
To the penultimate question – is Escape Park worth going? Yes, it’s worth the splurge for the splashes and thrills outweigh the cost.
At the end of the day, bask in satisfaction for overcoming various fears. Including the fear of height, speed, or uncertainty of the unknown.
