Desa Water Park, Kuala Lumpur, July 2011

Dear Diary,
Although I have resigned for nearly two years already, I still keep a good rapport with my ex-colleagues. We often be in contact through calls, sms-es and Facebook. Once in a while, we’ll meet to catch up on things. Last July, we arranged a mini reunion at Desa Water Park. There were 26 of us who could make it (15 adults & 11 children).
Admission fee for adults is RM20 and for children 12 years and below is RM14. Children with height below 2.5 feet get to go in for free. Operation hours are 12pm – 6pm (Monday to Friday) and 10am – 6pm (weekends, public holidays and school holidays). The park closes every Wednesday except during public and school holidays.
I’ve never been to Desa Water Park prior to this reunion. Imagine my surprise when I saw several school buses and quarter of the parking spaces were already filled up and it was only 10am. Inside, almost all good sitting spots were taken up and many people were already inside the water enjoying themselves.
The management provides many facilities for visitors’ convenience. There are a few eateries, changing rooms, restrooms, surau, sick room and lockers. A souvenir shop is also there near the entrance. As at other water parks, outside foods are not allowed.
Although there are a few water rides available, don’t expect much because there is only one really challenging water roller coaster available. The Thunderbolt, named as the longest Master Blaster in Asia, is what Desa Water Park is famous for. It’s the most thrilling there but when we were there it was only open to be ridden for half an hour. Other than the time limit, all of us had a fantastic time. The kids were dead tired by the time to go home but they loved splashing around to the max.
If you’re in Klang Valley, looking for a water park without having to burn a whole in your wallet, you can consider Desa Water Park as an alternative to other costlier water parks.

Maya - Tempat-tempat cam gini, budak-budak la yg paling happy. Anak-anak akak ni pantang tengok air. Memang seronok habis la diorang.

Lady Lavender - Memang murah la kalau fikir rate KL ni. Saya baru sampai hotel Bukit Gambang tu, waterparknya tak sempat nak terjah lagi.

Ica - Little Azra pun dah besar....sure la Abang Irfan pun membesar bagai johan gak. Dah setahun pun Ica.....jap je kan.

Ermayum - Memang very reasonable price kat sini. Sunway Lagoon mahal sangat....kena siap duit berkepuk baru blh gi. Tp dari segi rides of course la Sunway laaagi best.
