Escape Adventureplay Penang is a cool alternative to the beach and has quickly turned into a firm favourite with outdoor adventure seekers on the island. An outdoor, eco-conscious theme park specialising in zip-lining (a pulley suspended on a stainless steel cable, tied between two trees on an incline), the park also hosts other fun jungle activities for all ages.
A creative and fun way to foster a love of the outdoors, especially among kids, the park started out in 2012 with standout attractions such as a free fall from a 20 metre-high jump platform, an inner tube slide and tree rope swing.

Free Fall & Zip Lining
There are quite a few thrill rides to try here. We love the Atan’s Leap, a gravity-defying free fall activity that will see you taking the plunge from a 20 metre-high platform. You will fall through the air and land safely onto an absolutely-safe, extremely large, inflated featherbed on the ground; for safety purposes, this activity is limited to those aged 13 years old and above.
Another attempt to push the laws of physics at Escape Adventureplay Penang is the Flying Lemur, an obstacle course that will have you climbing 98 feet off the ground. To reach the finish line, you will have to overcome hurdles that will include the region’s longest zip line (456 feet-long) across a ravine. The thrilling final obstacle will have your adrenaline levels peaking!
Tree Swings & Water Park
Intent on providing a variety of activities for all ages and courage levels, Escape Adventureplay Penang is also home to rope swings, set at different inclinations, allowing those who are more adventurous to swing from higher heights, while beginners can feel safe swinging from lower elevations. Besides that, the park also has places where you can play on balance beams, engage in tree climbing contests, navigate through a fun but wobbly rope course, and even go exploring through a cave! In addition to all that is already available at Escape Adventureplay, there are plans to add in a water theme park in the quest for bigger and better thrills.
Entrance is RM60 for adults and RM45 for kids; open from Tuesday to Sunday, the park also operates on Monday when it is a public or school holiday. There is a free hourly shuttle service from a couple of Jalan Batu Ferringhi hotels, or from Georgetown guests can hop on the Rapid Penang bus 101.
