At i-City

Going for Malaysian Women Marathon on Apr 7th, made us travel all the way to Shah Alam and to i-City. First time for us visiting the place.

Was expecting a more happening, not to mention a bigger "theme park" than what it is, but well, advertisement can be deceiving.

The fake, lighted trees do look nice at night to some extent, I guess. Sure, the place does seem to have more visitors at night rather than during the day.
 
 
 Obligatory cheesy photos at the theme park. HAHAHA
 
 
The water park was kinda nice. They had a "Malaysia Women Marathon" promo where they offered free tickets on Apr 7th, provided that you pay RM5 for locker charges, to which I find quite reasonable.

So, after the marathon and a light lunch (donuts for the boys and a powerbar for Mommy), we went in for some water play time.

When Raimie complained about his feet feeling hurt while walking with me during the final KMs of my marathon, I coaxed Raimie with the promise of some relaxing time soaking his feet in the pool at the water park. It worked!

Didn't stay for too long. Mommy just sat in the water park's giant jacuzzi relaxing her feet while Son and his Dad went water sliding and water horsing around. I think we were there for a mere two hours. Enough la, right? Hot weather... stay there for too long, sure sunburnt la... xD

p.s. By the way, be warned. There's a RM10 parking surcharge if you go out after 7pm if you park at i-City. The day of my marathon, we parked at the shop lots and walked a couple of hundred metres instead. Save money. HAHAHA

  9. Water theme park is the heaven for kids, especially my two girls. They love Sunway Lagoon, so I believe they would love I-City water park too.

  13. I remembered they had a snow pavilion inside and it was so smelly and awful with hundreds of smelly feet and shoes at the changing shoes area. I guess the snow fest must be over as you didn't post any photos.

  20. Waaa. I was so excited when I saw your Urutora post in my reading list this morning that I completely missed this one.

    Just as well I rechecked, otherwise I would've missed a new batch of Raimie photos.

    Cheesy is nice. I like cheesy.
