Sprawling over 20 acres of land adjacent to residential and commercial developments in Austin Heights, the Fun Village is made up of the Water Park, Adventure Park, Sports & Leisure Park, Enrichment Park and a Golf & Hotel Resort.

While Austin Heights started as a property developer in 2004, plans to create the edutainment destination was initiated three years ago with construction of the theme park completed in stages.

“The creation of the Austin Heights Fun Village is part of our Corporate Social Responsibility commitment to the community who have chosen to live in Austin Heights,” said founder and managing director of Austin Heights, Datuk Ir Steve Chong Yoon On.

“We want to make Austin Heights commercially vibrant and very livable,” he added.

The development, situated just a 20-minute drive from JB city, is designed as an integrated fun and adventure entertainment complex for family bonding, corporate teambuilding and group outings for local and foreign visitors.

Thrill-seekers can expect adrenalin-pumping fun in the Adventure Park when they are challenged to experience the longest indoor suspension rope course in Johor.

The Adventure Park features rope and steel cable suspension structures that link through the indoor entrance area to the open area that overlooks a scenic view of the Water Park.

Equipped with state-of-the-art rides equipment, the Water Park comprises the Hola Flora kid’s pool, Splash World water-play structure, Super Surf 6-lane multi-slide, Turbolance, space boat, uphill and black hole flying boats, swim-up bar, splash pool, wave pool, lagoon and lazy river as well as cabanas and picnic areas.

The Sports & Leisure Park is made up of three indoor fun activities in the Topical Ice-Skating Rink, the Drift Cart circuit and the Jump Street trampoline centre.

Ice-skating in tropical weather is now a reality in JB where a skating rink is created with an artificial ice skating surface which is 95% similar to natural ice.

“When completed, this edutainment destination will include a 300-room hotel, dining and shopping facilities as well as indoor and outdoor entertainment areas,” said Chong who explained that their International Convention and Banquet Hall will incorporate a Performing Arts Centre and an art & handicrafts centre.
