SplashMania is an all-water theme park located in Gamuda Cove, Malaysia. Owned by Gamuda Land, the park features a variety of water rides and attractions for visitors of all ages. With two record holding rides, SplashMania promises a fun-filled day out for families and friends alike. My team and I were fortunate enough to visit and review all the rides available, so let’s discover SplashMania together!
Journey & Parking
We visited SplashMania on a traffic-free Thursday, leaving Subang at 10 am and arriving at SplashMania’s parking lot by 10:40 am without any hassle. The parking lot is spacious, with two main open-air areas, providing ample parking space without the need to search for spots. Moreover, the park is currently constructing a multi-story car park, ensuring sufficient parking space for even larger crowds in the future. Although the car park is located a bit far from the entrance, they offer a buggy service that will transport you directly to the entrance, eliminating any inconvenience.
A Grand Entrance
As we approached the entrance, we were greeted by a magnificent archway that resembled a natural cave with its rocky texture. The ceiling was adorned with a translucent blue roof that added to the beach ambiance. At the highest point of the archway was the SplashMania logo.
Upon our arrival, we were warmly welcomed by our contact who provided us with a detailed brochure of SplashMania and our wristband tickets. Prior to entry, our bags were checked for security purposes. It’s worth noting that outside food and drinks are not permitted, but anything containing plain water is allowed. As we passed through the turnstile gates, we embarked on our exciting adventure at SplashMania… sike.
Before we went on any rides, we decided to rent a locker to store our belongings. The process was remarkably simple, just enter your phone number, select from three different locker sizes and pay via card. The best part? You can access your locker anytime throughout the day using your phone number as the password, eliminating the need to keep track of a physical key. We were impressed with the efficient system, which allowed any of us to go back and forth to retrieve/put away our shooting gear. Now, onto the rides!
Treasure Tower, a playground for all
Our first stop was the Treasure Tower. It was packed for a children’s water playground, and we soon realised why as it was so much fun. As we climbed up the tower, it felt as though we were navigating through a maze, with various paths leading us to different slides at the top. The water cannons attached to the side railings and buckets of water on top meant water coming at you constantly from different angles. Also, don’t worry if you think you’d be out of place, there were just as many adults as there were kids enjoying themselves on Treasure Tower. The different slides still were enjoyable even though they were not too fast-paced, since it was meant for younger children. The highlight for this ride was this one particular slide – a miniature version of the water vortex slide.
Maniac Racers, four coloured tubes
The first main ride of the day was Maniac Racers. The ride consists of 4 different coloured slides, all twisting and turning in different directions. We were given foam racing slide mats with two handles. As we reached the top of the tower, we excitedly jumped onto the mat, lying chest down and holding onto the handles for our dear lives, ready for the exhilarating ride diving head first. The fully enclosed slide provided a rush of wind and water as we twisted and turned, and towards the end, it opened up for a straight slide down to the finish line. There are electronic scoreboards for this ride and others that will capture your times, that will allow you to compete with friends for the best times. I actually ended the ride on my back, overturned, so don’t try to go too fast 😉
Whoopa Loopa, Shaka Waka, Rush Havoc
We then headed to the Shaka Waka ride and discovered a great hack: check which waiting lane is shorter – the one for pairs on floats or the one for singles without a float – and choose that one! We took advantage of this trick and rode the slide multiple times. This ride is one of the fastest in the park, and the colourful LED lights add to the excitement. The lifeguard even gave me some advice to go faster – “take off your shirt” – and so I gave it a try. To my surprise, it made a noticeable difference! I continued to use this tip for the rest of the day. So for the adrenaline junkies out there, this tip’s for you. Of course, a dry fit shirt would suffice as well compared to the cotton shirt I had on.
Omba’King Cove, let’s go to the beach
After enjoying a series of thrilling rides, we decided to take a break and unwind at the beach area. The ambiance was lively and vibrant with a DJ playing upbeat music on a stage, people soaking in the pool, and some grooving to the beats. As we looked around, the grandeur of the pirate ship named ‘Amazonia’ caught our attention as it balances on a giant rock alongside the picturesque beach. It was the perfect spot to relax and recharge before heading back to the water park excitement.
Wild Rush, momentary freefall
A word of caution for this particular ride. While it’s not the most high-speed attraction in the park, it does end with a sudden drop into a 3-meter pool, which can be daunting for non-swimmers. However, fear not as a vigilant lifeguard is always present to assist you with a float, and can guide you safely to the pool’s edge. If you’re confident enough, you could ask someone to take a picture of you while you strike a pose mid-air!
Amazonia, the BIG pirate ship
The colossal wooden ship that can be seen from the highway is called Amazonia, which stands tall at 180 meters and can be seen even from the highway. The ship boasts multiple levels that offer exciting water slides, as well as food shacks and perfect selfie spots. With a bird’s eye view of the park, we were able to get a glimpse of the different rides in the park and get our bearings right with the help of the map brochure. Additionally, you could also recreate any Pirates of the Caribbean or Titanic scenes.
Sumaumeira Drop, The Plunge
The Sumaumeira Drop is one of SplashMania’s record holding rides, with it being the tallest water ride drop in Malaysia. It has an angled drop of a whopping 75 degrees that promises maximum speed and SPLASH. It is located on the side of the Amazonia ship, and at the peak of the ride, it is 6 stories tall!. The exhilarating drop felt like eternity, but in reality it was only for about 4-5 seconds. Truly a one-of-one ride in Malaysia so far.
Ravage River, strong currents
After my heart plunged, I needed to unwind again so we went ahead to the Ravage River. It was a peaceful and scenic route with strong currents that made wading through the water almost effortless. You had the option to swim, float or walk, and it was enjoyable to see people of all ages and races having fun together. Further down the river, there was an artificial wave section where a lifeguard and other people would jump with the waves in the pool. It was heartwarming to witness strangers joking around and enjoying each other’s company, creating a positive and friendly atmosphere.
There were other rides that we went on, but we’re choosing not to cover everything here as we hope that some of you will experience the park for yourselves. To summarise the other rides, there were child versions of the adult rides as well. Additionally, we noticed that some of the rides were still undergoing testing, including the Atlantis VR which holds another record as the first slide in Malaysia to incorporate virtual reality technology. This unique ride allows you to experience a thrilling descent while wearing a VR headset!
My colleagues and I were thrilled to review Gamuada Land SplashMania, and we left the park feeling thoroughly satisfied with how well it lived up to our expectations. Excitement was a definite 5/5. The park has a good mix of thrill rides and family-friendly attractions, which makes it suitable for young children all the way to fully grown adults. While a few rides were unfortunately not available to the public during our visit, there were still plenty of other enjoyable rides that made for a full and memorable day out. Don’t worry about getting hungry as there are plenty of choices for food, from the in-house food courts, to the food trucks, and mini kiosks that sell lighter meals like corn in a cup and soft drinks. Lastly, I’d like to commend the cleanliness and maintenance of SplashMania, as we could not find any rubbish on the floor, or grime on walls and railings. The park being brand new and pristine definitely added to our overall experience, so we hope that SplashMania will be able to maintain that standard of cleanliness in the long run.
Do visit SplashMania for a refreshing getaway, whether it be with friends and family, and enjoy a fun day out in the sun!
