Spotlight: ESCAPE Theme Park, Penang

Although Penang is commonly known for its delicious street food, and there’s plenty of it, it is much more than just that. There is so much to see, do and eat in Penang. For a start, there’s a cluster of new and old museums and buildings located in the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Georgetown.

For book lovers, there are many bookshops in Penang. Bookshops selling used books at Penang Chowrasta Market is a must visit. Gerakbudaya Bookshop sells new books and occasionally hosts interesting book events. Not forgetting, The George Town Literary Festival is Malaysia’s largest international literary event that takes place in Georgetown every year. Head over to their website and mark your calendars!

Also, Penang has many beautiful beaches. Teluk Kampi beach and Teluk beach could be the perfect beaches to plan a vacation on. Apart from all of these, situated in Jalan Teluk Bahang, there’s ESCAPE. An outdoor theme park. The theme park is aptly named. Who wouldn’t want an ESCAPE from real life? A place where one can spend the day with one’s friends and families, enjoying good food, games and loads of outdoor entertainment? 

ESCAPE is different from any other theme park. It is a re-visioning and departure from the conventional ideas of roller coaster rides and sugar-coated fantasies. ESCAPE draws from childhood past to capture the dreams and traditional values and addresses some of the problems of our current age by encouraging physical wellness and reconnection with nature…all through play in the quest for fun – Sim Choo Kheng
