Experiencing the New Angry Birds Activity Park @ Komtar JBCC

News of Angry Birds flocking into South East Asia have hit the headlines recently. After gaining instant fame and popularity ever since its first released on the IOS as a mobile game app, Angry Birds has garnered fans from all around the world and is a hit among children as well as adults.

On 31st October 2014, Angry Birds have officially landed in Komtar JBCC. Located on the 3rd storey of the new shopping mall in Johor Bahru and occupying an area of 26,000 sq feet, the new activity park is about 20 minutes drive from the Woodlands Checkpoint.

We decided to bring the kids to explore the new activity park before the December school holidays begin.


Once you enter Komtar, follow the Angry Birds label stickers on the flooring and it will lead you to the entrance of the Activity Park.

It's TIME TO PLAY! Let's check out what you can look out for within the Activity Park!

~ #1 - Red Bird Sona ~ 

Press the play button at the side, listen and follow the instruction on which number egg you should step on. It can be quite tiring to do this alone. Get some friends to join in the fun and proceed to higher levels.



~ #2 - Captain Black Bird's Ship ~

Little ones can hop on to Captain Black Bird's Ship and have a mini adventure on the slide and net.


Mini ball pool that Gladys manage to fit through.

~ #3 - Balance Bike Lagoon ~

It doesn't really matter if you know how to cycle or not. These little bikes got no pedals and you just need to use your legs to push and let it brings you around the mini course.


~ #4 - Cinemine ~

Feeling tired already? Why not get yourselves seated comfortably, surrounded with TNT cushions and blocks inside the mini Angry Birds cineplex. Catch the Angry Birds Toons, which are short episodes (~3 minutes) that will bring laughter to the audience.


~ #5 - Angry Birds GO! Kart Track ~

This has to be one of our favourite zone! We had so many rounds of driving around the obstacle course that my thighs and feet felt strained soon after. Definitely a good way to have fun and exercise at the same time. 



~ #6 - Bird Nest Climbing Track ~

Right above the GO! Kart Track is the Climbing Track. The adventurous ones can climb through the tunnels and slide down for another array of fun. 


It was pretty tough for me to go through the course with the socks on but the kids had no problem at all making their way around. Whether it is jumping into the foam boxes, hanging onto the ropes or squeezing their way up.

~ #7 - Space Soccer Cage ~

Denver & Gladys had a soccer game within the cage. It was a battle of skills and stamina and you can tell who won the game. :)


~ #8 - Space Drop Airbag ~

This is one jump that Hubby and I were super scared of. Standing at the edge of the cage on the 2nd level and attempting for the dive raised our goosebumps even though there is a huge air bag beneath to cushion us from the drop. Nevertheless, all of us made it and the kids even went up for many more 'dives'. One jump is enough for me.


~ #9 - Spacemine ~

A special mine that will not explode. Climb and sit on it to your heart desire.

~ #10 - Red Bird Goal ~

Soccer fans will enjoy playing in this arena. Partner and run with your friends on the grass patch! A test of your agility and skill by kicking the ball and hitting it on the right rectangular board before the time runs out! With all the running and kicking, this game tired us out.

~ #11 - Lazer Maze Spaceship ~

Is your body flexible and agile like Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible? Can you move swiftly across without touching the lasers? Beams of light are illuminated across the tunnel which you must skillfully go through. Try to beat the clock by making your way through the laser field. There are 3 levels (Easy, Medium, Hard) where more laser beams are at the higher levels. Aim to set your personal record and beat the fastest timing clocked! The kids had so much fun dodging the beams by jumping, crawling and "squeezing" their bodies through in their fastest speed.


~ #12 - Lazer Bird Scoot ~

The kids put on the helmets and are ready to scoot. The grounds are not even and it was challenging for them to maneuver their way up and down the slope. It will take more courage and practice for them to scoot like the experts.


~ #13 - Air Parkour Track ~

We are not very good with ropes and hence the kids gave this a miss. If you like to feel how it is like to be Tarzan, swinging from blocks to blocks, this will be a nice starting point.


 ~ #14 - Spinning Time Machine ~

A colourful donut-like wheel where you can have fun spinning while resting within.


 ~ #15 - Giant Leap from Pit ~

Another leap into the pool of foam boxes. *We were pretty exhausted by now and just resting on the foam boxes seems like a good idea.


 ~ #16 - Bird Wire Slack Line ~

Put your balancing skill by walking along the line. Only Hubby passed the test as he swiftly walked across with all the bags! *Applaud!

 ~ #17 - Anti-Gravity Trampolines ~

Three trampolines where you can jump and lift yourselves up in the air.


 ~ #18 - Piggy Shooting Gallery ~

Want to shoot some green piglets down? Here is your chance! Load your cannons with bombs and aim to hit them down! The fastest to do so wins! 

There was no crowd during our visit and we spent about 4 hours within Angry Birds Activity Park with an hour of lunch break in between. We cannot imagine how daunting it may be with the presence of the weekend crowd so extra time has to be catered in for waiting. 

In case you are wondering how big the 26,000 sq feet activity park is, it is about the size of ExplorerKid in Downtown East (Singapore). Despite the smaller scale, there are 18 activities children and adult can participate in. 

In general, our visit to the activity park was pleasant and relaxing as we were able to enjoy the facilities without having to wait. The children went for multiple rides and roamed around the park at ease. It was pretty exhausting at the end of the day as we ran, peddled, hopped and jumped a lot within the arena. For our family, it was a great workout in a short span of time. We perspired after awhile in the air-conditioned mall. The kids love to be back again for another round of fun.

Date of visit: 4th November 2014

  1. Hi there, I am thinking of organising a trip to the Angry Birds Theme Park for my company. My company is made up of people from 20s to 60s, based on your experience, do you think the park is suitable for adults? Mt company has about 100 pax.
    Thanks!

  2. Hi Singa Bot,

    There are activities within Angry birds Activity Park that are suitable for adults. Like the Kart track, Soccer, Space drop, Laser Maze, Shooting Gallery and the Trampolines area. It exhausted a lot of energy from me since I was doing it with the kids. :)

    However, with the size of the group you have and the space available, you may wish to contact the Theme park to see how they can package it for your organisation.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers,
    BPDGTravels
