i-City, Shah Alam
Snow in Malaysia? Yes, it’s possible. Take the kids to Snowalk at i-City for something completely different.
This is a technology park located on the outskirts of Shah Alam. At night the place comes alive with an amazing forest of man-made trees brightly illuminated with millions of colourful LED lights.
They call this the City of Digital Lights.
For children it is a fairytale wonderland and even for middle aged guys like me the effect is very impressive.
Next to the forest of lights is Snowalk which is an indoor snow park where visitors can escape from the tropical heat for a while and experience 5 degree temperatures. For some Malaysians who have never seen snow before it is a novel experience. If you are from Canada or Russia you will be less impressed but it is still worth a visit.
Inside Snowalk you will find igloos, ice houses, slides, a mini-bobsled run, snowmen, ice penguins, a bar made of ice (no drinks served), various ice sculptures and plenty more LED lights.
Warm jackets are provided (included in the entrance price). Trousers and boots can be rented at additional cost.
Back outside in the warm air there are other attractions at i-City. These include a reptile house, Laser Warzone (a laser tag game), amusement arcade/indoor funfair games,souvenir shops, food stalls, shops, a full size cinema screen (showing some Van Diesel film during our visit) and a range of restaurants.
There was a giant Xmas tree and a few reindeer made from LED lights and some Chinese New Year lanterns hung across the street even though our visit was in June. It would definitely be best to visit this place at Xmas to soak up the seasonal atmosphere but even in June it was packed with visitors (though it was a school holiday).
