KICK-START YOUR ‘SPLASHING’ HOLIDAYS AT DESARU COAST ADVENTURE WATERPARK

Desaru Coast Adventure Waterpark, is now opened seven days a week

Desaru Coast, Johor, 21 November 2018 – The holidays are around the corner and Desaru Coast Adventure Waterpark (DCAWP), one of the world’s biggest waterparks, is set to offer a splashing great time for everyone. Set against the backdrop of a traditional Malaysian fishing village, DCAWP is home to more than 20 wet and dry rides, slides and attractions including the first-ever water coaster in the region and home to one of the biggest wave pools in the world.

“DCAWP was built with one vision in mind, and that is to be the perfect place for everyone to create fun and fond memories. Whether you come with your family or friends, DCAWP definitely offers something for everyone as our rides and attractions cater to both the leisure and thrill seekers. With the holiday season around the corner, we are really excited to welcome families and friends seven days a week, from 10.00am to 6.00pm, to unwind, have some fun and most importantly, spend some quality time together throughout the day for a splashing great time!” said Jeff Jouett, General Manager, Desaru Coast Adventure Waterpark.

DCAWP covers more than 25 acres with the capacity to host more than 12,000 visitors at any given time. The rides and attractions are located in five zones namely the Penawar Falls, Penawar River, Shipwreck Reef, Tidal Wave Beach and Kids Ahoy; each zone offering ‘splash-tacular’ experiences to visitors of all ages.

Penawar Falls offers the first exciting view of the waterpark. Here, visitors will encounter a classic Swinging Ship theme park ride and three towering waterfalls cascading over massive 13-metre high rock cliffs. There is also where visitors can find the Surf Wall, a safe and high-energy surf simulator.

The Penawar River is designed for the leisure seeker. With 350-metre long, looping lazy river that goes through lushly-landscaped riverbanks and riverside fishing village scenes, this zone offers rides such as Wild Whirl and Super Twister, and The Tempest with its 60-meter-diameter tornado-shaped funnel.

The Shipwreck Reef is designed for thrill junkies. Kraken’s Revenge, the first-of-its-kind in Malaysia, is not for the faint hearted. This ride will take you 30 metres above ground in rolling “boats” before swooping and spinning through a full 360-degree horizontal loop, followed by a diving 27-metre drop anda super-splashing landing to escape the shipwrecking Kraken sea monster waiting in the pool of water below.

The Tidal Wave Beach is one of the biggest wave pools in the world, where everyone has fun playing in big ocean-like waves. This signature water feature at DCAWP spreads over nearly three acres and holds more than 4 million gallons of water. The Tidal Wave Beach can create waves up to four-metres high for surfing demonstrations, while making more mild and safe waves for fun-seekers through the day.

Last but not least, the Kids Ahoy zone was designed with children in mind, with three separate age-appropriate play areas filled with water play equipment with a combination of 13 different water slides such as Li’l Warrior’s Hideout, Scallywags and Starfish Splash.

Beyond the rides and attractions, the waterpark also offers facilities such as prayer rooms, first-aid rooms, rest rooms, lockers, cabanas and more to ensure the comfort and safety of its guests. There will also be free shuttle services to DCAWP and within Desaru Coast where the waterpark is located. The waterpark is also easily accessible by road, air and sea from Johor Bahru, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore. Tickets to DCAWP start from RM113 onwards and can be purchased at the ticketing counters at the waterpark.
