Our original plan was to go to Batu Caves first then catch the bus going to Genting Highlands at 10am. But since we arrived late, we skipped Batu Caves.
Lee Chua, a co-blogger from Malaysia, bought us Go Genting tickets prior to our arrival. It's very risky to miss the bus at 10am. As per Lee said, you should purchase the tickets in advance. Aside from it's cheaper, you will have guaranteed seats. True enough, we saw a lot of people lined up for the tickets but only afternoon trips are available.
From KL, 50kms it is to reach Genting, a magnificent city on a hilltop. The place is 2000m above sea level. Temperature is colder than usual of course. No time to waste, we began to explore right away.
First, we passed by the Indoor Theme Park. The place is not that big but it is full of interesting attractions.
We checked out Ripley's museum, Im a fan of unbelievable things. Entrance is RM18.

We proceeded to Coffee Terrace and availed their buffet. We chose to avail this buffet rather than the Outdoor Theme Park tickets because we can save more in doing so. Just so you know, Coffee Terrace buffet is priced at RM59++. So the Go Genting Package we bought at RM41 is so sulit!
Actually eating in a buffet style allowed me to try different Malaysian food. But Im surprised, they offered beyond that.
And of course, a wide variety of desserts. From pastries to fruits, to items Im not familiar with to etc.. This one's my favorite shot.
Grabe ang daming cuisines to choose from! I tried Laksa, Satay, Dimsum, Pasta, Sushi, some Indian food, etc.
I enjoyed it. Im so full ayoko na yata magrides sa outdoor theme park. Baka masuka ako. Hihi

Finally, we went to the Outdoor Theme Park. Since we already used our tickets at Coffee Terrace, we purchased our tickets here again. Ride-All-You pass + Flying Coaster ride costs RM45.
Yeah, I admit Im a theme park junkie. Gusto ko yung mga buwis buhay na extreme rides. Ü
Space Shot is a rapid vertical ascent and descent amusement ride.
Height is 185 feet. Speed at 67 km/hour. Exciting yung sudden drop, I really felt I was floating.
A hang-gliding roller coaster. Swoop, twist and zoom round turns and drops. The unique positioning of the passengers - four riders "fly" together, side by side - is a new way of experiencing drops, spirals and swooping turns from the "front seat." This ride is crazy. Pero parang wala lang, too secured kasi yung "cage". Obviously di ako mahuhulog. Di ako kinabahan.. hihi
We tried every ride that looks promising. Good thing here is that you don't need to line up for hours.
We checked out this famous shop too and bought some chocolates.
Due to irresistible and overflowing free samples, I gave in. I bought some bars for pasalubong (and for myself). Haha
We took the 7pm bus back to KL.
