Ice Age Adventure 2014 @ Genting International Convention Centre
Darling and I love travelling. We used to travel at least once a year before we had kids but slowed down the moment we became parents. These days, we still travel but our priority is the kids. Before deciding on a place to go, we make sure that the place we are heading to will have plenty of activities to keep the kids occupied. Comfort is also our top priority and that means having easy access to food, clean washrooms to freshen up and if possible we try to go to places that are not too hot so the kids stay cool and comfortable throughout our journey.
With all those in mind, we chose to go up to Genting last weekend. With the weather getting really hot these days, it is a breath of fresh air to be up in the cool highland for a break. It is Ayden’s first time up there so we made sure it wasn’t just a day trip but got ourselves a room in Awana Genting for two nights so it won’t be too tiring for the little one.
The highlight of our trip this time is the Ice Age Adventure 2014 happening at Genting International Convention Centre now until 26 October 2014.

As soon as we enter, there are many Ice Age movies backdrop lined up at the side and as we walked along them, we start reminiscing on each and every one of those movies. To jolt our memory further, we went into the Ice Age Theatre where they played short film followed by a fun Q&A session.
My family in the cosy Ice Age Theatre. There are many bean bags around for us to sit or lie on while watching the short film.
After watching the hilarious short film, there is a Question and Answer session. Ethan participated eagerly and tried his best to answer as many questions as possible because each correct answer entitles him to an Ice Age movie merchandise.
We proceeded to the Ice Age Playground where there are over 30 different props for photo opportunities. There is also a mini skill games section that kept Ethan occupied. Now let the pictures do the talking :)
Playing peek-a-boo. The boys enjoyed popping their heads out from the many ‘holes’ around. Ayden had a really fun time ‘surprising’ me by simply popping anywhere and seeing the surprised look on my face! LoL!
Rotating Acorn. Ayden spent considerably a long time here rotating the acorn. He kept turning and turning it and never got bored.
Next stop is the 3D picture station. This is where we let Ethan showcase his creativity by trying to get the best pose possible. He had fun making the 3D effect come to life.
Ice Age Adventure 3D Picture. This is a very interesting backdrop. It actually creates a 3D pic if taken at the right angle. I think I got the angle correctly as the picture shows the ice floating on the flowing water. Ethan there is trying to steal the acorn from Scrat!
Or here’s another pose of Ethan just chilling on the ice drifting away…
This could have been a nice picture of Darling and the boys trying to reach out to Scrat and the acorn BUT Darling’s left hand was resting on water instead of floating ice so consider fail lor…
Here we are in the pirate ship. I should have put my head at the pirate’s sword and act like a damsel in distress and get Darling to rescue me or something but ended up taking the least creative picture like the above instead. I did not see that idea earlier; only realised it now. Boo hoo.
Ice Age Cave Drawing. We are actually in a maze here. After drawing a picture or two, Ethan kinda got lost in the maze.
See. We are still in the maze. There are many mirrors to confuse you and Ethan like a true hero, lead us out of the maze. Hehe.
Next stop is one of the most anticipated activity – Meet and Greet with Ice Age characters! Woo hoo!
With Sid the sloth. Thank goodness Ayden is not at all afraid of these gigantic mascots.
I super love this picture of Ethan and Sid. So cantik!
There’s also a dance along with Ice Age characters session and five best dancers will win exclusive Ice Age merchandise. Ethan was very brave and went in front to dance together with those mascots :D
There’s also Ice Age Mini Games where Ethan won a little dinosaur.
Ethan’s cute little dinosaur :D
Oh yes, before we leave, we get to redeem ice-creams using our ticket slip.
At only RM20 per person, we had a day full of fun with the kids. Who says spending time with the kids (especially in Genting) need to burn a hole in our pocket? Oh yeah, if you are a Genting Rewards member (like me), it is even better as Genting Rewards members can get the tickets at RM18 only.
Ice Age Adventure 2014 is happening now from 1 September to 26 October 2014 at Genting International Convention Centre.
Check out Genting’s website for more details.
We had an ICE-traordinary fun time here at Ice Age Adventure 2014. Are any of you planning to bring your kids up? Do let me know as Ethan wants to go again!

Home is where MY heart is.
I am a mother to two boys; Ethan and Ayden and a wife to Darling William. I'm a stay at home mum who blogs to break the monotony of life and to avoid feeling jaded. Would love to get to know all the Super Mommies and Daddies and Babies or Singles out there with the hope that we can learn more from each other. Most of all, I am a happy person, and I hope YOU are too.
