Children can roll around in inflatable clear balls on the water, known as Zorbs, bumping, falling, laughing and bonding throughout the adventure, whilst zip lines invite the more adventurous to glide across the pond. Located within the Oriental Village is Malaysia’s largest 3D art museum featuring more than one hundred 3D paintings. Highly interactive, there are opportunities to pose with the incredible artworks and the children will have a ball.

At 125 meters long, the Langkawi SkyBridge is the world’s longest curved bridge. It is located 660 metres above sea level, offering incredible, panoramic views and is accessed from the top station of the Langkawi SkyCab.
