Fun Adventure Work Out.
It was great to visit District 21 and see its success.
We hosted a kids party when the park first opened in November 2014. The park has since served more than 500,000 customers.
The Park Manager Kent Siew and his team member Sharul showed me around.
What caught my eye was their latest attraction, a mini version of the Ninja Warrior Challenge like the one we see on TV.
This extreme park gives an adventure work out in a safe environment. It is located inside IOI Mall Putrajaya, next to Sovotel Hotel. The well spaced park with its good design can fit large groups of participants easily.
Team Building & Corporate Events.
I hosted a couple of team building events at the Park. The most fun was with the Priority Relationship Managers from around Malaysia for a Challenge at District 21. The 150 participants were divided into teams. Their mission was to conquer the various obstacles. The adventure ended with a celebration at the event hall.
One impressive event was Maxis “I am a Game Changer” frontliner event. There were bean bags and even a live band. The Safi Shayla Relaunch was also held at District 21. Photos are from District 21 Facebook.
This indoor sport center is creatively themed Post Apocalyse. It is reputed to be Malaysia’s Largest Travel Activities Platform and served over 500,000 customers.
Spanning over 6,500 square metres, the indoor theme park features a post-apocalyptic setting with plenty of metal beams, steel walls and colourful graffiti, as well as suspended ropes, chains, and platforms.
Visitors first pass through a two-step decontamination chamber. They are provided with protective gloves and non-slip socks while staff brief them on the theme park’s rules and safety precautions.
Fitted with LED-lit climbing walls, high-speed slides, trampolines, and aerial obstacle courses, District 21 Kuala Lumpur boasts 11 attractions with varying levels of difficulty.
The Roller Glider lets you zip-line along curving loops at a speed of 30km/h while Sky Trail has 23 high-altitude rope challenges to test out your stamina and balance. The Maze is a vertical labyrinth of steel tunnels, cages, platforms, and mind-challenging puzzles, some of which are suspended 10 metres above ground.
District 21 Kuala Lumpur has kid-friendly rides, including a merry-go-round (Carousel), scaled down rope obstacle courses (Low Ropes), and pedal go-karts within a 100-metre-long track (GoPedal).
The District 21 Ninja Warrior Course is the first Indoor Ninja Warrior Course in Malaysia featuring 15 Obstacles.
Malcolm Gladwell in his book The Tipping Point talked about the Law of the Few. With a good proposition, what he calls “Stickiness Factor”, and solid “Context”, a tipping point can be achieved with a few key people – Connectors, Maven and Salesman. The tipping point is that magic moment when an idea, trend, or social behaivor crosses a threshold, tips, and spreads like wildfire.
The Park is one of its kind. It is an adventure work out. It is memorable and sticky. The context is right. People are looking for challenges, and this gigantic playground offers obstacles for both young and older.
The management is clever. Weekends and holidays are mostly Walk Ins. There is active corporate sales for product launches, team building and corporate activities for week days. District 21 participates in exhibitions, MATTA Fairs, and overseas promotions. Tripadvisor rates District 21 very well.
Not To Be Missed.
Enjoy an Extreme Day with your family and friends. Try everything. It is an adventure work out. I congratulate the team at District 21 for 5 successful year, and the efforts to sustain and maintain this experience for all Malaysians and visitors. Kudos and keep up the good work.
