KL Time Square Theme Park Review


Berjaya Times Square Theme Park: The Roller Coaster
Berjaya KL Indoor Theme Park

It was my kiddo's second birthday and grandma was around so we decided to take the kids to KL Time Square Theme Park at Berjaya Times Square. The last time I went to KL Time Square Theme Park was more than two years ago, pregnant with my second son and the first boy was just a year plus. I remembered that the admission price was a bit high and that my 1 year old didn't really enjoy it that much with cheesy decorations and ear blasting music and so we stayed away for a while after.

Two years on, the rides haven't changed much but the decorations has been changed, it is much cheerier and thank goodness the deafening music has been changed to something more kids friendly. KL Time Square Theme Park has also added a small playground for the kids that are too young for the rides and for the ones that just love to run and climb.

Admission price is pretty steep to me if you are going in with your toddlers as the only toddler rides are those at Level 7 called Fantasy Garden and only 4 out of the 7 rides allow parents to accompany the kids. The toddlers rides at KL Times Square Theme Park are : Botanic Drive (Jeep drive), Crazy Bus (a bus ride that goes up and around like a slow ferris wheel), Buddy Go Round ( carousel ride), Fantasy Trail (Train ride), Molly's Cool Swing ( A swinging boat - no parents allowed), Flying Bumble Bee (self explanatory - no parents), Honey Bump (bumper car - no parents).

I feel that if you are going with your small kids and not planning on riding the adult rides (since you have toddlers with you), it's not worth it paying such a steep price for just a 1.5 hour stay in the indoor theme park. Even though the admission is for the whole day and you can re-enter any time during the day, I doubt any kids will have to be dragged out of the Times Square Theme Park after staying in for two hours, the four rides gets pretty boring after a while. But, if you don't mind the admission price, it is a nice 1.5 hour spent, in an air-con environment, away from the scorching heat. Afterwards, there are also a plethora of dining options at Berjaya Times Square to satisfy the kids after a tiring day at the Theme Park.

The adult rides at Level 5 Galaxy Station looks exciting and I bet that your teenage kids will surely be thrilled, although the rides are also pretty limited at only 6 rides. More info on the adult rides here at KL Time Square's official site.

KL Time Square Theme Park is at Level 5 of Berjaya Times Square which is just a walking distance from MR5 Imbi Monorail. Take the KL Sentral Monorail MR1 towards Titiwangsa and drop at the 5th station.
