Enjoy the fun activities in Bukit Gambang Water Park when we went the Kuantan on the day before National Day.
We first visited our sis-in-laws staying in Kuantan town on the day we arrived. On that night we went for a famous chicken and duck restaurant for our dinner. We reached there about 7.30pm and spend about an hour for waiting; end up finished our dinner at almost 9pm. The serving was nice of course, since our stomach are empty and we were so hurry…
We stayed over-night in one of the sis-in-law’s house. The 2nd day morning in Kuantan is a raining day. The rain is actually started right after we reach home 1st day night. We postponed our departure time to Bukit Gambang Resort City since the weather is a bit cool in the morning. We don’t want our princesses complain cool after short period of playing in the water park and go home. We have to make sure we can fully enjoy the fun in the Water Park then only worth for the time we spent long distance drive from KL and the money we paid for the entrance fees.
I had studied some info about the water park online and this is the website given me some basic info and the photos taken are so nice and looks attractive.
Entrance fees are at promotion rates as stated, RM21.90 instead of RM28.00 for adult and RM14.90 instead of RM18.00 for child (90cm to 12 years old). My colleague shown me his receipt printed in year 2007 and we noticed that the price had been revised. Once again shown we are the victims of inflation.
I like the concept where we paid in advance for the E-Value package in ticket counter and we can keep our pocket safely in the locker of the park. Any extra spending like rental charges of locker and tubes can be deducted from the advance payment. Balance will be refunded at refund counter when you are out from the water park. (This is the powerful and the advantage of computerize system).
There are many younger working at the entrance of the park. With wearing different design of uniforms I presume that they are part time staffs. It’s good to know that this place is creating working opportunities for younger. They will help the guests wear on the wristbands and we can start our fun in the park.
For your info, T-Shirt, shorts, swimming trunk, swimsuit, sun suit, aerobic suit / bikini and swim shoes are all allowed. But please keep away your jewelry, eyeglasses, goggle, zip, buttons, buckles and studs when you playing the slides.
Locker rental is RM6.00 plus refundable deposit of RM9.oo. A convenience wristband locker key will given. The deposit is refunded upon the returned of the key in good condition.
Our first fun was the Aquaplay at Penguin Island. Princesses are having fun in the big theme water playground.
Next is the Adult leisure pool. But we didn’t spend there for long period as we know there are more fun to go.
Then we headed to the kids slide. It’s hassle to play and bring the big tubes along so we only rented the tube when we played here. Single tube cost RM6.00 and refundable deposit of RM4.00 whereas double tube cost RM10.00 and refundable deposit of RM5.00. It is worth to pay for the double tube because the fun of playing at the slide on the double tube is more than double.
Princesses played again and again on the slide. They didn’t even have once complained for carrying the big size tube from the pool to the top of the slide. Of course, we did help them to else some burden on the journey.
Glacier River / Journey of Ice is a bit bored for us. Depends on the wave to move us on the tube, the journey have not much fun.
Lastly we headed to wave pool & lagoon. The man has to be strong to hold us on and enjoy the waves in the pool. Else we can be easily back to be ‘beach’ because of the strong waves hitting the slide. We are happy but I know hubby spent lots of energy keeping us in the middle of the pool.
We didn’t go to the 6 lane racer, crystal slide, galaxy slide and canopy slide because that is for older kids. We don’t think our 6 years old and 8 years old princesses enjoy the excitements. But we definitely missed the family raft ride. Must try this when our second visit.
Coco station is the food court in the park. If you rent a cabana, you can get a pizza free of charge. Ice cream and hot dog are selling as well.
Some will compare Bukit Gambang Water Park with Sunway lagoon Water Park. To me, if you would like to enjoy lots more of fun in water or variety theme parks, it is no doubt that Sunway lagoon Water Park is your choice. But the entrance cost is high of course. For family who have children below twelve, I am more prefer Bukit Gambang Water Park as it is truly enjoy the water rides and water games which we spend less for less fun but still their energy spent in the park can be fully exhausted.
We didn’t snap any single photo. This is the only regret for this trip….
