mall at Resorts World Genting. There is always something for everyone from the young to the young at heart at 6000 feet above sea level. Visitors will be awed by the new attractions that include thrills, learning, or even art.

And why not when there is the brand new Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Odditorium, Jurassic Research Centre, Zombie Attack, the Alive Museum and Jungle Gym all under the Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Adventureland as well as the PlayTime! Video Games Park attraction located at the 70,000 sq ft attraction at the Level 4 of the SkyAvenue Mall.

Boasting over 400 exhibits, a cabinet of curiosities including artefacts of lost worlds has arrived at Resorts World Genting for a time of wonderment and interaction.

There is also a fantastic model in commemoration of the World Trade Centre made entirely from matchsticks.

Everyone has surely had a fascination with dinosaurs at one point in time. The Jurassic Research Center is the answer to everyone’s childhood dreams with massive figures of different species of dinosaurs spread throughout the centre such as the Brachiosaurus, the Triceratops or even the sabre-toothed tiger. There is no better way of learning than interactivity and this centre does that best. Visitors will be startled when a Tyrannosaurus Rex magnificently roars as they walk by and witness a strange looking Gigantoraptor rear its head at them which really brings the place to life. Here, visitors can get up and close with dinosaurs like never before.  There is even a fossil laboratory to study the different specimen models of dinosaur fossils with detailed inscriptions. The exciting highlight is a 4D experience of witnessing velociraptors wrecking havoc in a discovery lab.

The most thrilling and terrifying attraction of all, Zombie Outbreak is definitely not for the faint-hearted. Visitors can experience what it is like to be one of the last survivors of a nightmare Zombie Apocalypse. Visitors that try to seek shelter in the abandoned house will find that the course is spread out like a maze with a new terror waiting at every turn, keeping the survivors on edge as zombies consumed with a ravenous desire for human flesh are everywhere. Definite horrors wait with only one way out and no turning back.
