Angry Bird Activity Park Johor Bahru

4 Comments

As one of his birthday present, we promised to take him to one of the theme park in Singapore or Malaysia. His first thought was Legoland, but since we’ve already been there before, I suggested this place. Angry Bird Activity Park is located strategically in Komtar, Johor Bahru City Center, and the place is quite new and our GPS didn’t recognize the place, so I entered the address 8000 Johor Bahru into the GPS and thankfully the GPS knew this place very well.

JBCC is located next to JBCS (Johor Bahru City Square) and there is a link bridge connecting these two malls. If you are going here by bus to Johor Bahru, JBSC is actually located just opposite JB Central or Johor Bahru Checkpoint. We could see Sultan Iskandar Immigration Building from JBSC. So you just need to cross the bridge from the JB Checkpoint to JBSC, but if you drive, you will need another 15 to 20 minutes to get to the mall.

The boy was in high spirit that day and he woke up the earliest that morning and tried to wake us up. We still continued to sleep until half an hour later and thus make the start of the journey delayed for 30 minutes too, and as you can guess, there was a massive traffic jam around Mandai, Woodlands Checkpoint, and finally JB Checkpoint. The original plan to arrive in JBCC before 10 am was failed.

Snacking in the car

Snacking in the car. The queue in the checkpoint must had made him feel very hungry, although he already had biscuit in the morning and rice for breakfast in the car. By the way, we are so in love with this popcorn chips (salted popcorn shaped like chips) because it is free from msg and preservatives

We made the wrong turn to JBCS car park and didn’t realize it until we were inside, but we were very lucky that we got lost. There was a Malaysia Tourism Exhibition inside the mall and we found one booth that sold theme park tickets. And guess what……………..the booth sold discount tickets on that day and we only needed to pay RM46 per person instead of RM75. We already checked when we finally arrived in the park, and the entrance fee was RM75 if we bought directly inside the park. So it was very fortunate that we got lost…………….

Don’t worry that you might get lost to the Angry Bird Park inside JBCC, just follow this cute sign on the floor:

These birds will help you find the way…………..

We arrived at the park at around 11 am. Ticket validity is as follow:

Valid for full day play from 10am to 10pm during weekdays (Monday – Thursday)
Valid for 1 session play on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Public Holiday & School Holiday
Session 1 : 10am – 1pm
Session 2 : 2pm – 5pm
Session 3 : 6pm – 10pm
I thought, during weekends we could only choose which session that we want to join and can not join in other sessions. Thankfully, daddy asked the staff and the ticket is valid for all day play, but the park will be closed for one hour in between each session. Phew……so relieve that we asked…………………

Only me and the boy went inside while daddy and my mom wandered around the 2 malls, which happened to be a good decision because the inside of the park was actually quite small (seriously………..not as big as I thought). Even smaller than the Kidstop and probably just the size of Explorer Kid Downtown East.

Study the map carefully before starting the exploration

Yap, ready to go.......!

Yap, ready to start…….!

Before going here, I also thought that most of the play area here would only be suitable for smaller kids, and I was wrong……………..now in my opinion………….older kids will enjoy this park more than smaller ones because most of the fun play areas are more suitable for bigger kids.

IMG_9549

RED BIRD SONA. Press the play button at the side, listen and follow the instruction on which number egg you should step on. The instructions were given based on addition and subtractions between 1 to 10, and the longer you play, the faster the instructions will be given. So this is only suitable for kids who already can do addition and subtraction very well and fast. I believed most of the kids who played here didn’t like mathematics, as we always found this spot to be empty all the time…..hahaha……..

We left our footwear aside as shoes are not allowed. If you have heavy bags and do not wish to carry them around with you, lockers are available which is charged at hourly rate. Food and drinks (even water bottle) were also not allowed inside.

IMG_9551

Take more picture with 2 angry birds near the front door. Look also at the birds above his head. So cute…….

Then we headed to Angry Birds GO! Kart Track, one of his favorite play. There were 2 sizes of go-kart, the bigger ones were for adults and the smaller ones were for kids. Some little kids had difficulty maneuvering the kart, so the parents had to help them or pushed them from behind…………….extra exercise for parents………….

The bigger one was also not that easy for some adults, including me at the first try. The wheel was so heavy and after so many rounds I gave up and ended with that my thighs and feet felt strained until the next day, but not for the little one………….he was still having fun all by himself even after I got tired and decided to park my kart.

IMG_9560

During the morning session which was not so crowded and no queue on the track

Right above the GO! Kart Track is the Bird Nest Climbing Track, which consists of bridges, tunnels (vertically and horizontally), slide, and a small pool of foam boxes. This is very suitable for younger kids, although adults must squeeze themselves to accompany them to go through the tunnels and slide, hahaha…………I tried the vertical tunnels with stairs and almost got stuck inside, but the slide was fun for both of us. The boy ended up exploring this playground mostly all by himself.

We found giant eggs inside the birds’ nest

I love this slide, slippery and easy to slide down unlike other slides

Next, he was ready to be catapult into:

Space Drop Airbag, also one of his favorite.

Space Drop Airbag, also one of his favorite

In this Space Drop Airbag, we must stand at the edge of the cage on the 2nd level and drop ourselves to the giant pillow below. Although it seemed not too scary from below and also not too high………..but believe me………….it was super scare once I was standing at the edge and looking down. It took few minutes before I finally jumped, and I almost didn’t jump but was too embarrassed in front of other kids if I turned back…………… I was still a bit scare at the second jump and ended positioning my body wrongly when I dropped and it made my arms and back hurt a bit. The lady on top of him finally didn’t jump after trying for so many times……..hahaha…………kids are definitely braver than most adults.

Spacemine area was also near the cage but I didn’t take any photos because I had to concentrate on my jump……………

Next, the boy put on his helmet and chose his favorite scooter and was ready for the next adventure in Lazer Bird Scoot. 

IMG_9585

The grounds are not even and it was challenging for him to maneuver his way up and down the slope. There was a kid who was scooting with him could do this very well and I was so impressed!

IMG_9591

Finally, I told him to just drag the scooter up to the other side of the hill which had flat surface, but even after his hard working dragging the scooter up to the hill, he was still afraid to scoot down the hill. It’s ok. Let’s try again another time

He said he didn’t really like the scooter and would still prefer his own scooter at home. Different material and different price of course………….

IMG_9600

Don’t worry, you won’t get lost, just follow this signs…………oh well, it was just a small park anyway…………..

IMG_9604

Piggy Shooting Gallery, where you can  shoot the green piglets down. Just load your cannons with bombs and aim to hit them down……………which of course is not easy at all…………

The best park and our favorite of this park was of course Utopia Zero Gravity Zone. This zone has some play areas for smaller and bigger kids and is the largest zone in this park. This also seemed to be most kids’ favorite place since it was always very crowded in here comparing to other zones. And now let’s see what are inside this zone……..

IMG_9607

Spinning Time Machine, make yourself feel dizzy by spinning inside here. It is better if someone else helps with the spinning…..

IMG_9632

Air Parkour Track. There was actually a rope hanging so we could swing from block to block, but the boy gave it a miss because he found something else that brought more of his interest

IMG_9612

Like this one: The Bird Wire Slack Line…………as you can guess, we were failed to cross smoothly after so many attempts

IMG_9766

Anti Gravity Trampoline is divided into three sections based on age. Look at the father next to him………..looks like he was having fun too, hahaha……

IMG_9751

Giant Leap Foam Pit, where he swung himself like Tarzan and had so much fun…………

IMG_9755

falling down into the pool full of foam boxes………..only for the brave heart and strong muscles…………….

After we were done and tired in this zone, we moved to the nearest zone and we found this:

IMG_9670

Lazer Maze Spaceship. The boy was afraid at first because he thought the green laser was real, but after he learnt that it was just harmless green light, he had fun trying all the different challenge with other kids inside

It wasn’t an easy job to move swiftly without touching the lasers, but most kids they didn’t care and just walked though the the lights, hahaha…….There were 3 levels (Easy, Medium, Hard) to choose and more lasers beamed at higher levels. Try to crawl and squeeze your body for maximum fun.

The area just opposite the go kart track is suitable for smaller kids, especially this Captain Black Bird’s Ship.

IMG_9724

Not his favorite place………….too small of course

IMG_9704

Balance Bike Lagoon for 5 years and below. He tried to this but was so hard because it was already too small for him……

IMG_9686

Now let’s move this red bird…………..

Last but not least before the morning session was over, we found this comfortable hiding place

IMG_9698

Cinemine, a place with TNT soft cushions where you can watch short movies of Angry Bird while seated comfortably and peacefully…………..

The first session was over, and we were all starving. The boy said he wanted to go inside again on the second session. Actually, since this place is not too big, you can finish all the activities within 2 hours, but I’m sure 2 hours will not be enough for the children.

We just went to the nearest food court (on the same level with the park, but needed to turn right and cross the indoor parking lot), and saw that there weren’t many choices of food. This was a new opened mall so the choice of food was not much and more than half of the food court was still empty.

Chicken rice (RM 6 and RM 8, based on the choice of the chicken). The chicken rice tasted different than what we usually have in Singapore, but it was still good...........since we were so hungry

I couldn’t help converting all the expenses in RM that day to SGD, and kept saying to my husband how cheap everything was, hahaha………………….

After our tummies were full, we went back to the park to play in the afternoon session.

IMG_9786

He was all sweaty after the play, so I changed his clothes and he was ready to go in again…….this picture was taken in front of the park

IMG_9788

We went to toilet first before going in as there was no toilet inside, but temporary exit was allowed during the play time

The second session was definitely more crowded than the first session, we even had to queue for the go kart. The trampoline play area was full with kids and adults. and even the seating inside the mini cinema was full almost the whole time. I didn’t take to many photos as I had already taken many pictures on the first session, but here are some pictures from the second  3 hours session:

His favorite Tarzan swing, which I finally dare to try, and it was fun although the drop was scary for the higher rope. It turned out that using my upper body strength too much had made my arms hurts the day after, hahaha.......

The best part was to fall down............me and other adults found it was very difficult to get out from the foam pool especially with the socks on my feet, but amazingly the kids could easily move inside the pool...........

The boy was quite tired at the last 30 minutes before the session ended, so he chose to sit and relax inside the Cinemine, but when we got out from the park, he asked to play again in the third session which we refused because of the long journey home and we were all very tired. For more information about this park, you can visit http://angrybirdsactivitypark.my/

We visited Popular Book Store in JBCS to check the price of the books, and I found out that some books are way cheaper than in Popular Singapore, so I let him bought this:

The new series of Geronimo Stilton book, cheaper by $7........should have bought more books..........

We had dinner at the sixth floor in Causeway Bay Hongkong Restaurant in JBCS. We were so hungry and ordered so many things because based on our experiences, the food portion in a Chinese / HK Restaurant was usually very small. To our surprise, the portion was very big than even the portion of the rice was doubled of what we usually got in restaurants. The food was very good and we gave two thumbs up for everything. I didn’t really like Sio Mak vegetables in tausi (black bean) sauce because I never really like tausi, but daddy said he liked it.

After some calculation and conversion (I couldn’t part with my calculator in my phone, hahaha……..), I told daddy that the total amount of our dinner was SGD 33 (RM 86.5). Surprise…………….surprise……………so cheap…….with so many food and we even had some leftovers to take home. This place even had 2 kinds of chili sauce which tasted good too.

Our journey home was shorter than in the morning, and the queue in both checkpoints were still tolerable. The boy fell asleep as soon as he got into the car, only woke up when we arrived home, walked to the bedroom, and continued to sleep until 7 o’clock in the morning. He slept for 12 hours……….totally KO and exhausted, but totally had so much fun the whole day.

Hi there. I'm from Indonesia but now live quite far away from my home country. I love cooking for my family. I learned how to cook for the first time from my mom and I believe that mom's cooking is always the best, and I do hope that my son will feel the same too even though he grows up so fast. I love Indonesian food as I grew up with it, and I promise to myself that my son, although he doesn't live in Indonesia right now, will always like and enjoy authentic Indonesian food. I make this blog so that my family will always remember our togetherness and happy time that we had, are having, and will have when we eat together and have good memories about a mother's love through her dishes. Hopefully these recipes will help other people to make healthy home cooked dishes for their families.
