Austin Heights Water & Adventure Park
More than just a water park, Austin Heights Water & Adventure Park is a 3-in-1 park. A rope course with seven levels and over 50 obstacles delivers adventure. Slides, wave pools, boomerangs, and racer bowls form the water-park element. Go-karts, synthetic ice skating, and the Jump Street trampoline zone make up the leisure section.
Buy tickets for the water park, the Adventure Park (rope course), the Jump Street trampoline park, the ice-skating rink, and the Drift go-kart session individually or as combo packages. You can even buy monthly or annual passes to some park areas. There are discounts for people over 60 years of age and children under 4 feet tall (120 centimeters tall), plus hefty discounts for children born within the last three calendar years. Travelers visit both from Johor Bahru and from Singapore, across the causeway.
