7. ICE SKATING AT SUNWAY PYRAMID
The perfect activity to stay cool and have some chilly fun is donning a pair of skates and taking the ice at Sunway Pyramid Ice Skating Rink. If you’re new to it and always wanted to try, friendly and professional trainers are on site to help you along. The rink gets pretty crowded during weekends and public holidays, so if you’d like less of a crowd should you want space to practice, best plan to go on a weekday.
Location: LG3 Sunway Pyramid
If you love the thrill of horror and being scared breathless, you do not want to miss Hauntu, an immersive haunted house that also works as an escape room with intricate mazes, interconnected storylines, live theatre performances, and roleplaying. You’ll thoroughly enjoy the chilling and super creepy environment of Hauntu’s Colle Eastern Hotel where you’ll have to test your wits in order to escape.

This activity is perfect for friends, couples, and family – you can even create a shared masterpiece with two canvases!
Location: 22-3, Jalan 25/70a, Desa Sri Hartamas
10. RUG TUFTING
One unexpected activity that has rather surprisingly taken the city by storm is another one outside of the thrill zone. In fact, it’s quite a time-consuming but calming one: rug tufting! Learn to make your own bespoke fluffy rug by taking your pick from a range of cute designs or customise your very own. While tufting workshops are a slightly pricier activity compared to others, it’s great for those of you who are looking for a novelty experience that’s hard to find elsewhere.
