FunPark @ Gamuda Luge Gardens: great for an afternoon outing

Very close to Kuala Lumpur (28 minutes from Mont Kiara, just 5 minutes off the Rawang exit) is a brand spanking new theme park (opened 9/12/23) called FunPark @ Gamuda Luge Gardens, even with lots still under development, it still looked pretty attractive as we drove up and was clearly seen from the highway. The website boats of Malaysia’s tallest ferris wheel, but that wasn’t open yet. For our trip we were invited to try the Skyline Luge, FunPark and Big Bucket Splash.

Walking into the park is a super festive experience with music playing and lights flashing. The car park A was almost full and we saw a crowd heading in at 12.30pm (FunPark opens at 12pm, on weekdays though the Luge opens at 10am according to the website – weekends they open earlier). So either get there just before opening or an hour or two after the initial rush.

Thrills on the Skyline Luge

First up – the Skyline Luge at Gamuda Luge Gardens. Honestly this was the biggest draw and something we had wanted to try since hearing of it. It was pretty fun but not that long. Took us 3-4 minutes to get to the bottom. First up, expect queues! We were told we would have a 30 minutes wait at the bottom of the lift, and another 30 minutes at the top (we actually got on the luge within half hour). There are 4 routes to choose from. Blue and pink lanes are the fastest. Orange is next and green is the scenic route.

Head over to the helmet bins to choose your size. Built in RFIDs ensure you can track all the photos and videos taken of you. Head for the ‘First Time’ lane so you can get a stamp on your hand and get proper instructions. Then head down any path you choose. Allow a few hours for this station as once is definitely not enough. Leave your big bags in the car or at a locker. Only bum bags or sling bags allowed up. Price for 2 rides is MYR50 but if you book online it’s a few ringgit cheaper. I would get 4 rides if I went again.

Fun for younger ones at Gamuda Luge Gardens

Then we tried the FunPark at Gamuda Luge Gardens. It’s quite small and basic with 6 rides to try. Perfect for little ones. Me and my giant kids (aged 14 and 17) were only allowed to taste the Carousel and jelly cup twist, which were a bit basic for us as we have been spoilt, visiting many theme parks over the years.

Finally, on our way out, we sampled the Big Bucket Splash. There were lots of kids for a Thursday afternoon but they have time slots so don’t worry about overcrowding. We had the 3.30-6.30pm slot and as we had a bit of time, grabbed a bite at super busy A&W, conveniently situated right next door. Other nearby eatery options were Korean Fried Chicken, CocoLoco & LlaoLlao, or if you don’t mind a 200m walk, there were a few options next to the Luge area. We saw a cendol cart and a Luge Cafe but didn’t go in. It really is only a splash area with some slides so not really for older teens but perfect for younger ones.

Overall I highly recommend Gamuda Luge Gardens if you have a free afternoon especially if you go on a weekday.

If you’re looking for more water play, check out SplashMania or for more thrills for the older ones, read our review of Discovery Park. Another option for younger ones is Paya Indah Discovery Wetlands.
