Colours at Cosmo’s World, Kuala Lumpur

The Berjaya Times Square is a mega shopping complex located in downtown Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. You could easily spend two entire days browsing through the stores in this mall (there are over a thousand stores in all). It is truly a shoppers paradise, but I didn’t visit the shopping plaza to max out my credit card. I was there for a whole different reason altogether.

The biggest indoor theme park in Asia is located at Berjaya Times Square and I couldn’t wait to see it for myself. The park was called Cosmo’s World and extended through three different levels of the mall. There was a wicked looking rollercoaster which almost touched the roof, and I was quite excited to give it a go! However, I actually needed to get inside, and there was a long line of people waiting to buy tickets at the gate.

The ticket was bought for 30 Malaysian Ringgit, and gave you a day pass for all the rides and activities inside of the park. On entering, we were instructed to store all bags and small items in the lockers provided for a small charge. The fee you pay depends on the size of locker needed.

There were many kinds of rides in the park, and I spent the entire afternoon riding every one. Security measures were constantly being taken, and the staff ensured that everyone was strapped in properly before the rides were started. I had on sandals, so I had to remove my shoes for a few of the rides, while those who wore sneakers didn’t have to bother. This was to prevent anyone’s shoes from falling off and injuring persons walking directly below.

The highlight of the park was the large and brightly coloured rollercoaster, which was named the Supersonic Odyssey. It was full of loops and turned us upside down a few times during the ride. It was very bizarre to be flipped over, only to see people sitting down and eating lunch at McDonalds two floors down below! The ride was so awesome, that I went twice in a row.ย

Apart from the thrill rides, there was a small area for children called the Fantasy Garden. The rides there were much slower and smaller, but large enough that parents could accompany their children.

If you became hungry or thirsty while in the theme park, and you’re reluctant to leave to get a bite to eat, there were several food stalls around. The price wasn’t the cheapest, but there was a pretty decent selection. The food options included hot dogs, popcorn and various sweet treats such as cotton candy.

I managed to spend an entire afternoon in Cosmo’s World. The best part of being in an indoor park, is the chance to have lots of fun without worrying about the weather. If you’re visiting Kuala Lumpur and the weather prevents you from touring the city, make a stop at Cosmo’s World. A great time is guaranteed.

About Jodi

I absolutely love to travel. Most days, it's hard to focus on anything else. However, I'd like to change my travel style from now on. I have always been a 'safe' traveler, with hotel reservations made, cruise vacations and a set timetable. I want to break out of that habit, and become an independent backpacker. This blog will serve to document my aspirations to experiment with traveling solo, around the world!

  1. You are in Malaysia now?

    I always visit Berjaya during my stays in Kuala Lumpur. I can recommend the hotel Pudu Sentral just five minutes away. Yesterday I bought new glasses in the mall and got a hair cut there ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Never entered the amusement park though, just watching.

    • Nope, not in Malaysia at the moment. I’m trying to catch up with some older posts. I’m planning to return to Asia in a few months though. ๐Ÿ˜€ How did you like the mall? I find the malls to be really massive and clean!

      • I like the mall a lot. I mean you get everything you need there, it’s safe and nobody tries to fool you.
        Imagine me as a German buying his new glasses there!
