GEORGE TOWN: The Wet World Wild Adventure Park (WWW) in Batu Ferringhi will soon be the place to go.

Touted to be the first open sea water adventure park in Asia, WWW is a project by Theme Park Concepts and Services Sdn Bhd (TPCS) and supported by the Penang Global Tourism Board – a set-up by the state government to promote tourism.

The water adventure park, to be located in the sea between Parkroyal Hotel and Hard Rock Hotel, is slated to open in late September.

“The park consists of several obstacles that include rock climbing, running track, a trampoline, swings, slides, ponds, walls and a human catapult – just like the ‘Wipeout’ TV show,” TPCS chief executive officer Datuk Richard Koh said at a press conference with Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng at the latter’s office in Komtar yesterday.

Koh said the WWW would only operate during non-monsoon seasons and with a maximum of 80 persons per session.

He added that the WWW adventure park concept would also be expanded to other locations in Asia.

“We may even consider holding competitions similar to the TV show ‘Wipeout’ to be competed regionally and globally,” Koh said.

Lim said the state government was focusing on new products, new events and new experiences in its bid to promote tourism.

    why worry so much about jellyfish sting? Obviously if you read the guidelines, there will be a standard safety procedure to follow, for example, nets will be used as boundaries.

    Learn to live a little. All i see from everyone are complains. This one no good that one no good. You guys are not even doing the heavy lifting. You see the irony! LOL

    Hey ! Another clever ploy to grab the seafrontage eh ? And deny the general public free use of the beach unless they pay entrance fee ? SYABAS
