Skytrex Shah Alam
Skytrex was one of the first outdoor activity venues which took advantage of the green spaces in Shah Alam, offering city folk a chance to challenge themselves physically on its obstacle course and canopy walk. Located within the 817 hectares of Taman Botani Negara Shah Alam, which is a forest reserve, this park offers three levels of activities – beginner (Little Adventure), intermediate (Big Thrill) and advanced (Extreme Challenge).
Younger kids are only allowed to participate in Little Adventure activities where they have to be accompanied by an adult; while the older ones, teens and brave parents can try the more difficult levels. Expect flying foxes, canopy walks, plank and rope ladders and lots of laughs. It’s a good venue for outdoor birthday parties and group outings as well. There are also Skytrex parks in Langkawi and Malacca if you’re visiting.
