ESCAPE: Time to Play (Teluk Bahang)


So who wants to have some fun? If you guys didn't know..there is a new place in Penang at Teluk Bahang area called ESCAPE!
Penang Escape Theme Park, Teluk Bahang
ESCAPE: Time to Play!

Yeah, that's the tagline of the theme park, errr...not not actually "theme park" but adventure park (yup, thats more like it)
The Adventure park consist of several games, packed with adventure and wild exciting challenges that can cater for both the young and old..eerr... young at heart! :D

So, I had the opportunity to visit the place and a very nice Ms. Zilla gave me a tour around the area, and oh boy, was it BIG! (Came here to check out the packages as I am organizing an event activity for the deaf club @ YMCA)

The place is managed by Sim leasure. (al the staffs e-mails end with so yeah..

It was pretty interesting, and I had only managed to take a few pictures as I needed to focus on the task at hand! 
Well actually, I would be going there again soon, March 24th to conduct the activities for the deaf there. I guess they are pretty excited about it too!

Ample car park, for you car parking needs :)

View of the open area, such a beau with the deco's
Had to take this to emphasize, lol
Reception and landing area
Such a cozy receiving area! The people were quite nice and friendly too!
Please read before entering, seems like they are real strict with the rules and regulations

High above the trees

For the adventitious and the "spider" heart
Well, would you just look at that! is that a bird? Plane? Superman? Well, more like Spiderman to me. Test your spidey skills here :D
Ahhh..Foxy Burrow!
Im not sure if that is the correct one, but they do have a play tunnel for kids. They can run through the tunnel in the dark and find their way out. Fun!! (Why am I not a kid anymore :( )
View of the thick green's here

Drop your body here! Penang's bungee jump!!
Now this takes guts! It's called the "Atan's Drop". Its exactly like bungee jumping, except shorter in height. Wel still, if it were me up there, ill be a-shakin' :S Brrrr....
This play is not included in your ticket, and can be played with an additional RM10 per person. Well, do it for the fun anyways (if you dare)
Hmm...looks like Mike's angels are figuring out what to do next
Hahaha, well, I guess i have 3 angels now..but i'm no Charlie. These are the deaf youths im working with. Super great experience for me :)
An illustrated layout map for visitors

when I saw this, I was like...hey, didnt i dream about this place before? "dejavu?" Yeah, it definitely looked like a fairy tail forest house! (Except no big bad wolfs here).
Actually, when I inquired about sightings of snakes, wild animals of sorts, there seemed to be...none! its pretty safe for children and young ones! (Or the old-er ones too if they are scared)
Such a nice scenery!
Nice little river passing by, eeerrr...well, its more like of a stream...very kampung feel!
Well, actually the whole place is built and designed to look like a village and kampung! All the games are kampung (village) games, like climbing of trees (coconut) and playing all sorts of jungle/ forest/ kampung games! 

Nice plants, growing very well...planted by the streams of water

Such a long way up....Who can climb up there first wins!..test of strength and agility
Hah! what did i tell you about climbing trees? The people here sure climb very fast! (they did a small preview demo for us to witness "easiness") *cough* *yeah, sure...right...woo hoo...*
My favorite picture! A good o' hammock like a good o' friend! Snoozeeee
Ahhh, this is my favorite part! After all the action, one needs his rest....what better way then a hammock!! So rare for me to see this! So cooling too! (I was so tempted to try this for a 5 minuter snooze)
Their meeting rooms, they have actual grass growing from the roof...looks like green hair?
The design here is tastefully made, its unique and special...making you feel "lost" is a totally alien world.
safety first! Don't climb trees without it!
Before you get moving around, remember: safety first!
Water from the mountain that contains...GOLD!

Ahh...this is interesting will get the minds of the young children lies the legend that there is gold in the you have to search and filter the sand in the water until you hit gold! 
Get enough of gold, and weigh it down...give it to the person in charge and she will transform it for you into a medal!
The water drops here, this is a good place to start the gold filtering...

So who wants to go for a swing ride?
Father and son, Mother and daughter, Boyfriends and Girlfriends, all good to go for a swing :)
Ah, this is the mother game..its called the Tubby Ride ( i think) haha
You get to ride all the way down here in an inflatable "float"
For this game/ ride...player would need to get one of those "tubby" (inflatable swimming floats) of a kind and walk a 10 minutes walk, all the way to the top to slide down this slippery slide! 
Once your down, get ready for the ride of your life!!!
