Genting Highlands has an indoor arcade and theme park which people throng through during the night when the outdoor theme park is closed.
The indoor arcade is called Funtasy World and has
rides, simulations and games. I went with Rene after a session in the
casino. The credits come in a swipe card instead of coins.
Gunshot is a game where a digital rifle is fired upon targets at
monitor screens about 5 meters away. The game allows 30 shots for RM 10
and its quite fun to play around with.
The rifle is attached to a cord which registers a hit when the bull
eye is hit by the rifle. I played with this game for quite a while.
It’s like a digital shooting range.
The K-Box is a self enclosed kiosk that allows you to choose from a
variety of songs for karaoke singing. One song is RM 2 and there is a
touch screen to select from.
Harley-Davidson motorbike simulation
I also got on the Harley-Davidson motorcycle simulation though the
streets of LA. You literally have to steer the motorbike using the
actual size of the Harley-Davidson.
Rene played the more passive bass fishing simulator. There is a cord attached to a real fishing rod that you use to fish with.
Top Skater by SEGA Skateboarding is another simulator that we got
on. It’s pretty fun coz the control is via an actual skateboard
attached to the arcade machine.
There was also this weird game by Namco where you roll a trackball
like device which I played with Rene. I don’t know what it’s supposed
to do so we just guessed and I won the game. Heh!
One of the more exotic games is the Namco drum arcade game where you
hit the huge drums. The game play is pretty unusual and I like arcade
machines with unusual control schemes.
SEGA Dinosaur King
I don’t know how to play this game but I went on it anyway. It’s
some kind of card battle game like Magic: The Gathering except it’s in
Japanese and I couldn’t figure out what to do.
Kart Duel Go-Kart simulator
This is the last game that we played. It’s a Go-Kart simulator with
real Go-Kart controls and I managed to soundly beat Rene (or was it the
other way round?).
