PETALING JAYA, 19 January: Gamuda Land has announced the launch of the Goosebumps Rope Course in Discovery Park, Gamuda Cove, driving tourism and footfall in Southern Klang Valley as demand for outdoor activities continues to grow post-lockdown.
The largest of its kind in Malaysia, as certified by the Malaysia Book of Records, Goosebumps Rope Course offers adrenaline junkies more than 57 climbing elements to test their mettle, including a giant swing and abseiling.
Adventure seekers can also look forward to the introduction of Gamuda Cove’s Bring Your Own Tent camping programme, as well as horseback riding activities. Along with the upcoming SplashMania rainforest-themed water park, Gamuda Land’s vibrant placemaking initiatives are set to position the nature sanctuary and smart city as the Jewel of Southern Klang Valley.
“Malaysians are keen to get out and about and connect with nature in the new normal. Goosebumps Rope Course caters for this demand, with a fun and safe environment and exciting challenges for all ages, including 11 elements just for children. In addition, its strategic location next to the 1,111-acre Paya Indah Discovery Wetlands allows residents and visitors at Gamuda Cove to really experience, enjoy and learn about Malaysia’s natural heritage,” said Larissa Chan, Executive Director (Commercial Real Estate), Gamuda Land.
Setting pulses racing with an elevation of 16m, Goosebumps Rope Course features an exhilarating rope course challenge that participants can join individually or in teams, along with a rooftop events platform. The attraction offers morning and afternoon sessions and is co-located with the Motomaniac ATV & Dirt Bike facility in Discovery Park, Gamuda Cove’s 23-acre recreational amenity.
“Goosebumps Rope Course and the Discovery Park are emblematic of Gamuda Land’s mindful approach to town making: ‘When we get the places right, the town works.’ They complement Gamuda Cove’s residential precincts like Enso Woods with thoughtfully placed recreational and commercial components, ensuring everything is within easy reach for the benefit of residents and visitors. Together with our upcoming Forest Park and Wetlands Arboretum, this mindful placemaking naturally positions the township as an eco-tourism hub for the region,” said Chan.
Leveraging on its natural pull factors, the Bring Your Own Tent programme showcases the scenery surrounding Gamuda Cove, allowing visitors to enjoy a night under the stars in Paya Indah Discovery Wetlands. Families can also look forward to horseback riding and horse carriage activities, ranging from casual joy rides to 5km nature trails.
Complementing this eco-tourism appeal, the 7.5-acre Townsquare offers vibrant lifestyle retail spaces amid pedestrian-friendly boulevards. Townsquare is a component of Heart of Cove, the commercial and entertainment nucleus of the township, with garden office towers, a hotel, retail mall and MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions) facilities driving footfall to the township and surrounding communities as Gamuda Cove transforms the lifestyle and leisure outlook of Southern Klang Valley.
Moving forward, the 90-acre Forest Park is envisioned as a riparian jungle setup, with the co-located Wetlands Arboretum as a botanical garden promoting the awareness, study and conservation of plant species diversity. This nature-centric approach is also seen in SplashMania, set to be Asia’s largest rainforest-themed water park, with 70% of its spaces allocated for greenery.
Gamuda Cove itself is a 1,530-acre nature sanctuary and smart city in Southern Klang Valley, with 5G infrastructure in place for next-generation connectivity. It is situated within a 30-minute drive from Kuala Lumpur, featuring accessibility to the North-South Expressway Central Link (ELITE), Maju Expressway (MEX) and South Klang Valley Expressway (SKVE) Highways.
