That's awesome! Looks like the wacky worm was in better shape than most of Gentings rides.

At the airport again! The third and final chapter of our Where in the World trip is about to begin! Where could we be going this time? I will post some pictures soon!

Oh, and BTW....

Here's a picture of Elissa paying the lady with the monkey to open the Wacky Worm for us! It was absolutely one of the most "Credit Whorish" moments ever! But it was worth it... just to tell the story!

Yeah, it's in the brown building with the two towers on the ends! Been to KL twice last year, and rode it. The mall is Berjaya Times Square, the park is Cosmo's World. We really had a great time there, plus there's a Crispy Creme down on the first floor by the main entrance!

I'm glad you think that too, IMO it was ranked as my favorite coaster in the 2010 steel coaster poll. Even though I have only been on around 25 steelies it really was a great ride!


Are you guys on crack? We thought it was pretty much an average looping coaster, and most of the ending was very slow. It was fun, but no where near a top 25 steel coaster. I do like the indoor setting, the layout, and the numerous crossovers but the ride itself is quite tame.

^ You obviously didn't ride the same roller coaster we did. When you see the video, it's anything but slow, especially at the end.

It was good, don't get me wrong, just nothing really special to me other than the location which is awesome! I'm not saying I wouldn't love to see a looper like this in any park, just don't think it was all that...that's all.

Hey, if you guys are coming to Bangkok, or Hong Kong (be there from 2/21 to 3/1) then you've got let me know!! Heck, even if you aren't planning on coming to Bangkok you *should* stop by and see us, you're welcome to stay with us! Seriously...Debi just said "stop on by.."

I wished I'd been watching the thread every day, loved the Air Asia sign and seats, LOVE Air Asia. We've flown it to Singapore and Phuket and they have very good rates to Europe from here too! Glad you guys are enjoying Southeast Asia.....we love it here....had a blast at Universal and that was before the coaster and Transformer were open. Is the Madagascar ride open?

A few more photos while we wait at the airport....

So here we are at the Batu Caves. Kind of a bizarre, somewhat culture credit in Malaysia.

It's like 200 steps up or something ridiculous.

Did we mention there are thousands of monkeys just hanging out?

When you get to the top there is a giant cave. (Or it could be a vagina from the coloring book of vaginas...I think I know whos is might be too....but that's a totally different story for another time!)

There was also a LOT of garbage and the smell of fecal matter. Yeah, it wasn't pleasant. Now, to be fair, there was a HUGE holiday event that just took place here where they said that 1 million people (no lie) were at the caves over the weekend, and there is where the mess was from. Honestly, it was quite gross.

The trip back down was much easier, and really...I prefer going down....

The caves look cool, minus the whole trash and smell thing.

Can't wait to see where you end up next.
