[TRAVEL] Resorts World Genting | Ripleys Believe It Or Not Adventureland, | Jurassic Research Centre | Zombie Outbreak | Alive Museum


Hey guys! Over the weekend I decided to visit Resort World Genting newest attraction, and believe me when I say that I had tons of fun! Despite going to Genting pretty often for the past few months, I'm pretty surprised to find that there is always something new each time I visit. This time I spent more time exploring the Level 4,  Skyavenue Lifestyle Mall at Resorts World Genting, where all the adventure begins. In today's post, I'll be sharing with you the newest attractions in Genting Highlands, featuring Ripleys Believe It Or Not Adventureland, Jurassic Research Centre, Zombie Outbreak and the Alive Museum. Scroll away to find out more.


So to make it easy for you guys, I'm gonna try my best to simplify my post so that you don't get too with these words that I'll be writing. Give a girl some credit for trying, or maybe an A for effort at least? Hehe. So, since there just so many things to share, I'll properly decide each attraction in paragraphs so that its easy for you to read through my post. The Big Box has so much to offer, but since I only went for a day trip, I'll only be talking about the things that I managed to cover on that day. Are you ready for the sneak peek of my most recent adventure?

Ripley Believe It Or Not Adventureland




First up would be the Ripleys Believe It Or Not Adventureland. The last time I went for a Ripleys Believe It Or Not gallery when I was visiting Australia, and now, I can't believe Malaysia has our very own Ripleys Believe It Or Not located in Genting Highlands! We all know that Ripleys Believe It Or Not used to be a very popular TV show showing extraordinary facts that are too good to be true, and at this Auditorium, you will find over 400 exhibits featuring cabinets of curiosities including artifacts of lost worlds that deserves a time of wonderment and interaction to all visitors.



There are so many bizarre and wacky collections which include a model of a Vampire Woman, Mike the Headless Chicken, and even a model of David Beckham's legs made out of worn-out bills. (can't image how many bills were shredded to make one of these sexy legs). In the pictures above are just merely 20% of the things that caught my eye, and if you would like to see more of these mind-blowing exhibits, you can always pay a visit to see them all with your own eyes.

Jurassic Research Centre




Next stop would be the Jurassic Research Centre. Secretly I always wanted to see dinosaurs as I usually wonder what the world would be like if they did not go extinct? Well, at the Jurassic Research Centre, you will be wow'ed by real life-size dinosaurs that would move and make sounds. So before you enter, be sure to think about where you stand as their tails might just whip you off the ground (this specifically is a warning for kids) hehe. This center would fulfill your childhood dreams of seeing massive figures of different species of dinosaurs that you will able to see it for yourself, and while you're there, might as well takes photos to impress your friends and family right?





So wondering about the Jurassic Research Centre, it really felt like I was traveling back through time to watch these dinosaurs come back to life. The excitement of it all was when I got to see a Tyrannosaurus Rex standing right before me. Partially thankful that its all mechanical, but if it was real, I don't know what would stop the T-Rex from eating me. Visitors to the Jurassic Research Centre would be given the chance to get up close and personal with dinosaurs like never before. There is even a fossil laboratory to study the different specimen models of dinosaurs with details inscriptions making you feel as if you're in an actual fossil laboratory! And once you're almost at the exit, you can end your visit in a 4D experience of witnessing velociraptors wrecking havoc in a lab.

Zombie Outbreak



To those who think that dinosaurs are not scary enough, then this is for you. The Zombie Outbreak is  basically your worst nightmare. We all know those zombie movies where everyone runs to seek survival right? Well here at the Zombie Outbreak, you will have to survive through a 20-minute maze where the zombies would walk free. The stench of your flesh in the air would 100% catch their attention, so beware! Not for those with weak hearts, and to those who want to scream your hearts out, enter only if you dare.




This has to be one of the MOST thrilling and terrifying attractions of it all! Im glad that I made it alive, and trust me, the maze it's not your typical predictable maze. The maze is dark, cold, and zombies are literally at every corner. Somehow the storyline of the maze is that you'll find yourself in an abandoned house, seeking for shelter, but in every room, you'll have to watch out for the zombies. Once you enter, there's no turning back. Only 8 people are allowed per session, so be sure that there's at least a leader that is brave enough to guide your way.

Alive Museum




After my mini heart attack at the Zombie Outbreak, its time to slow down the pace of my heartbeat by visiting the Alive Museum. The Alice Museum is where visitors can enter a world of fun optical illusion art. Featuring artworks specially commissioned by the artist from South Korea, you would be amazed at the skills they have to create wonderful 3D images. If you're familiar with the K-pop trend, then you're in luck as you'll get to see the painting of famous celebrity figures such as Lee Kwang Soo, Gong Yoo, and Song Joong Ki!





Above would be some exciting photos that we managed to take while we were there and I believe that the spread is pretty fair. Great for people who love to take photos, and by taking images at the Alive Museum, you could totally surprise your friends and family by looking like as if you're a part of the 3D painting. From being in the cold north pole to outer space, this would be a great place to explore trick art at the Alive Museum. I would have to say that this is a must-visit if you want to add something a little unique to your social media feed.



There are other attractions too at the Level 4 of the Skyavenue lifestyle mall at Resorts World Genting, such as a Video Games Park, Arcade games, The Jungle Gym and the Healing Touch. As a conclusion, this particular attraction has something for everyone, no matter how old or how young you are. Even if you're hungry, there are food and beverages outlets available within the same area such as Wendy’s, The Baker’s Cottage, Texas Chicken, Pizza Hut, Kenny Roger’s Roasters, Marrybrown, Jr Curry House and Only Mee and Boat Noodle. Also opening very soon is Subway and J&G Chicken from Taiwan. You can also explore the Marketplace area if you have the time!


Operation times are from 10.00am to 10.00pm and prices for the attractions may be purchased separately or in a combo of two or three attractions. Prices vary for standard tickets for adults and children and for Genting Rewards members, so if you have not gotten yourself the Genting Rewards card, it's about time you do if you're looking for more savings!
