Ice Age Adventure & Genting Behind The Scene Tour

There's no greater place to escape locally during the hot spell other than Genting. With the recent closure of Genting Theme Park, one might thought Genting no longer have attracting point to visit, at least not until the completion of World First 20th Century Fox Theme Park. Well honestly speaking, I went up to Genting last week and I had so much fun there. This is what I did there.
Ice Age Adventure which landed at Resorts World Genting since 1st September 2014 and had brought upon great amount of fun to the entire family and a money can't buy bonding session between the children and parents. Held in Genting International Convention Centre meeting Room 7 - 12, kids could really spend the whole day there enjoying the 3 main key zones namely Ice Age theatre, Ice Age Playground and Ice Age Meet and Greet with a wide variety of activities awaits them.
At only RM20 (or RM18 for Genting Rewards Member), you are granted access to all the zone and not forgetting there's also free Mat Kool ice cream and lucky dram for all visitor. Upon entering the main entrance, you will be greeted with tons and loads of photo opportunity backdrop.
Here are just some of the many 3D art you can pose with and it might even take you the whole day to finish everything, just to give you a brief idea how many area you can explore. There is also mini arcade for the children where they could stand a chance to win cool prize too.
For those who's children love to draw on the wall can now encourage them to do so without heartache at the Cave Drawing section. This is where you can encourage and motivate your children to unleash their potential to the max.
You maybe accidentally stumble upon Ice Age character along your journey and this I could promise you, even a grown up couldn't resist the opportunity to have photo taken with the famous characters.
One of the favorite zone for all Ice Age fan have to be the Theatre section with screening of Ice Age's popular short films like Gone Nutty, No Time for Nuts, Continental Crack Up 1 & 2, and lastly Surviving Sid. There will be 12 time slots available at 30 minutes per session starting from 10.15am right up to 9.15pm.
Right after the movie, patrons get to take part in an mimicking activity where each get to walk away with some cool Ice Age merchandise. We were lucky to have a big kid who mimic Sid on stage.
Lastly of course there is the Meet-and-Greet zone where again there were some on ground activity for the children to win some cool prize. Whether it is selfie, activity, or to dance along to the rhythm of the groovy music, be warned, your child might not wanna leave this zone, not at least until the character take their break.
Besides the mentioned key zone, there are other attraction too within the compound. When you're there be sure to located and collect the stamp so that you can have this really cool DIY bookmark of yours.
There is even a colouring zone for the kids where it would later transform into their very own Ice Age mask.
Once you felt tired, proceed to the lucky draw area and treat yourself to an icy cold Mat Kool ice cream at the lucky draw area. Trust me, it is a refreshing stick of ice cream with surprise in your mouth.
Ice Age Adventure is open from 10AM to 10PM and will be ongoing until 26 October 2014, so you might not wanna miss this.

If Ice Age is not your cup of tea, then perhaps you might wanna consider Genting Behind The Scene Tour. The almost 3 hours tour offers participants valuable insights into the resort daily operation. It was initially a month campaign and due to high number of visitor, it turned into a monthly routine now.
The tour begin at Visitors' Galleria where it showcase how it all began. It took about 30 minute for the showcase and it highlight past, present and future development of Genting. It is truly inspirational to learn how the founder Lim Goh Tong made his empire here. What's more exciting is that 20th Century Fox theme park project that is estimated to complete by end of 2016 and if you didn't know yet, it is world first 20th Century Fox theme park, truly made us Malayasian proud.
Next in the tour is where participants get to explore the back stage management in Genting International Showroom. This is where the team handle all the lighting, sound and effect during any show or concert.
Then come one of the most interesting tour among all, a visit to Malaysia largest hotel laundry where participant could have first hand view and learn how hotel manages all the dirty linens.
Last from the tour itinerary is where participants get to  make their own sushi roll or cupcake and share it with their loved one. The hands on experience is interactively fun with chef guiding you by the side.

I think I'm a qualify Genting visitor through out these years and there were times where I got bored not because the place is not exciting, but rather I've tried almost everything there and ran out of activity beside chilling. I have to admit I was having plenty of fun with Behind The Scene Tour as it was again a new area to explore and things to learn. 

So for those who are eager in taking part in this tour, you can register for the tour at the First World Theme Park Wristband Tagging Counter located at the First World Plaza or registration counter at FVision City Video Games Park. Tour is priced at RM20 per pax and starts at 2.15PM. For further details on Ice Age Adventure or Behind The Scene Tour do visit
