Unique Experiences Rides
The Flying Coaster is Genting's new ride, a unique hang-gliding roller coaster.
An Asian first: a hang-gliding roller coaster. Swoop, twist and zoom round turns
and drops! With the Flying Coaster, you'll "fly" with a totally unobstructed
view of Genting and its beautiful scenery.
The ride lifts the flyer to a height of 20 meters and releases the flyer to a
hang gliding flying experience over 391 meters of the track length, with a
maximum speed of 25.7 mph. It gives thrill-seekers the incredible sensation of
zero gravity, together with the realistic effect of flying. 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."
The flyer will experience a constant change of acceleration throughout from
negative 1G to 3.6G on the vertical movements and 1G on a lateral movement.
* Note: This Flying Coaster ride is available on a pay-per-ride basis and is not
included in the One Day Unlimited Ride Pass.
With the temperature at minus 5 degrees Celcius, a winter experience in Malaysia
in this wonderland, and be thrilled by the Cresta Run snow slide. Indulge in a
snow fight, go sledging or simply enjoy the gentle touch of falling snowdrops on
your face at Snow World. There is also the New Freezing Bar that serves ice-cold
ice-cream and yogurt drinks.
Space Shot is a rapid vertical ascent and descent amusement ride. It is intense
and not for the faint-hearted.
It lifts up to 12 people into the air, providing an exciting G-force on the way
up and a feeling of weightlessness on the way down. Passengers are also able to
take in the scenery around them on the way up, as this ride is an open-air ride.
Strapped onto seats, four to a side of the tower, the starting sequence cannot
be initiated until all passengers are safely secured to their seats.
