My First Visit to i-City, Shah Alam

Before the lights go out……..

 

I often mention to Alex that one day we should pay a visit to i-City before the lights go out. Later the LED lights terbakar edi…how to watch summore? ^^

You know lar…Malaysia style ma….creative, innovative…but poor in maintaining!

During the past long weekend we finally made a trip there. Bringing mummy along too.

Recreational attractions at i-City comprises of:-

i-Walk

A 30,000 sq ft outdoor convention centre with a capacity of 15,000. i-Walk has been venue for a number of international events such as the MTV World Stage Concert Live in Malaysia 2011 and Miss Tourism International 2010.

The night view of i-Walk

Snowalk

Newly refurbished with a Science 2012 @i-City theme, this is a 50,000 sq ft snow educational showcase with life-sized ice sculptures and thrilling rides in a below 5 degree Celsius arctic environment.

We did not go in to experience it. I find it abit expensive to pay RM35/person.

RM25 per adult and RM20 per child before 6pm.

RM35 per adult and RM30 per child after 6pm.

Water World@i-City

Experience Malaysia’s first Tornado ride attraction and enjoy a day of cool splashing games and activities for the family.

The entrance ticket for adult is RM50

The overall map of i-City. Look interesting only.

Although the entrance is free, but every ride also need to queue and buy ticket. All rides also need to pay. No money no talk. This world really no free lunch!

Looks like they are using vacant shop lots to transform into amusement park.

Ride for kids. ‘Pirate Ship’ I suppose.

Happy Train for kids.

i-City

no idea what mascot is this. Just go forward pose and snap photo! ^^

City of Digital Lights

Dubbed the City of Digital Lights, the over 1.0 million LED lights dazzing i-City nightscape attracts an average of 90,000 visitors weekly. Its seasonal light themes and outdoor fun rides has become a night gathering place for families and friends.

The festive season is coming soon…Gong Xi Fa Cai!

Brighten up the walkway with red LED lights shape of lanterns.

Although Christmas is over, I still like snowman. 😉

Do you notice the rail across this photo? That’s the track for Spacewalk which is an elevated rail ride through the Enchanted Forest of digital lights. RM20 per cable car (holds two people).

Beautiful lights. Finally I got to witness them!

Mummy said these Sunflowers are very pretty!

Super Swing – RM5/ ride

Double Decker, claimedthe largest 2-Tier Carousel in Malaysia. RM5/ride

Bought the Mickey prop there….for RM5. *act kawaii*

Verdict : 1 visit will be enough, at least to experience it. If you only want to spend time only on the LED lights…. 1 hour is sufficient. Food wise…nothing much to choose here. Its either you go for Kung Fu Chicken (KFC) or Oldtown White Coffee…do not put high expectation on the food. Else go for mamak food there. Parking rate is rather high. We parked our car for not more than 3 hours, the auto machine charged at RM12! More expensive than shopping malls leh!

There is also a ‘6 D Motion Theater’, I don’t dare to experience it…I afraid the effect I got after the show is backache. LOL!

Check out the upcoming event on their website. “Event Calender”

  1. Wah!!! I oso always said I want to go before the lights “kaput”. Hahahahaha. Malaysia is famous for “buat dulu, jaga tak jaga nanti baru cakap”. LOL!

    Very nice ler the lights. I like those trees!!!

  2. I went there once..
    that time I bring some guest over and I remember we eat the buffet steamboat…
    hmmm.. everything are lights…
    Good experience le… like you say we should go there at least once..

  3. Very true! Here, when something starts, all nice…but poor maintenance, after a while, everything spoilt already. Incompetent management…and also selfish, irresponsible members of the public. Very sad – the mentality that it is not their own, so can spoil…no need to bother about keeping clean and so on…

    Looks like a nice place. Never been – nobody ever bothers to bring me here. Sobssssssss!!!!! (Hint! Hint! To whom it may concern! Muahahahahaha!!!!)

    • STP – Exactly! ppl here got the mind set…as long my house is clean..I don’t bother the rest. For one thing I don’t understand…Malaysia’s toilets are so dirty! Esp..those in public area. Wuekk*

      Wahahaha…… go hint on that “person”. Whoever it is… 😀

    • Hi Stacey.

      By Komuter & Taxi: From KL Sentral, take the KTM komuter to Padang Jawa, Shah Alam station. From there, ride a taxi to the I-City
      By Bus: From KL take RapidKL U80 to Shah Alam. From there, get on the U605 bus.

  5. Hi Melissa!

    If I just want to see the “city of digital lights’ and walk around there, should I pay for entrance ticket or it’s a free walk there? Thank you!
