There’s always something new in Melaka to explore! Enter Melaka Thousand Tales of Adventures – the Adventures of Sinbad. It’s an interactive, fun, thrilling yet family-oriented attraction that recently opened its doors.
If you are looking for somewhere to hang out in between bouts of shopping and food hopping or simply to escape the heat, this would be one of the places to visit.
Upon reaching the outlet, you will be greeted by a giant poster that advertises their 7D motion ride. I guess there’s no need to explain what 3D is, and you may have probably heard of 4D and 5D. So what is 7D?
Well, besides the environment effects, roller coaster experience, dynamic water and fog, players will also get to battle monsters in the latest laser technology. So essentially, the gun is the what makes the experience 7D. More about that later, because first, you need to join Sinbad the Sailor of the Seven Seas to save the world in his latest fantasy adventure.
Apparently, there’s an army of undead raised by an evil shaman terrorizing the realm. Therefore, you will assist Sinbad by helping him to solve puzzles, challenges and ultimately defeat the evil shaman. It might corny but lets not forget that the target audience is family of all ages :)
That being said, if you are bringing children along, do note that there’s a mini haunted house or sorts occupied with life sized monsters. There won’t be anyone dressing up as a monster to startle you, but the models are pretty realistic. So take up the role of hero, protect your kids and brave through the dark halls together.
The attraction is set in a shop lot of 3 floors divided into 7 zones, each with their own unique themes. To begin the adventure, you will need to enter the Cactus Canyon and meet up with Sinbad.
He will guide you through an interactive touch screen display and like a well-versed sailor of the great seas, he is also able to speak in three different languages.
After making your way through the valley you will reach the Treasure Cove. It’s filled with everything shiny – but it’s clearly a plot by the evil shaman to sway you from your quest! We couldn’t resist touching the piles of coins – even though they are said to be ‘cursed’ lol.
Now that you have successfully resisted the temptation of taking the treasure, you will need to break free from the grasp of the skeletons in the Skeleton Scape dungeon. As you can see, many of them that weren’t too lucky.
Hmm, what’s this? Seems like you need to solve the challenge before you could proceed to the next zone. Is it too easy or too hard? Regardless, there’s an emergency release button which you could use in case you’re stumped.
Jellyfish that glow means trouble. These giant jellyfish have poisonous tentacles so exercise extreme caution and try to escape the Jellyfish Juncture unharmed.
It wouldn’t be an adventure without encountering any pesky spiders. Gather your wits and get ready to face thousands of them in the Spidey Suite where they are guarding their precious eggs from intruders. Just watch your step and hopefully they will leave you alone.
Before the final battle with the evil shaman, you will face his monsters in the Monster Manor. Do what you must to free yourself but don’t forget to protect your companions too. If you ask me, the ‘monsters’ are not scary at all for adults but the experience wouldn’t be the same for the little ones considering they are much more imaginative than us.
In the Final Combat, Sinbad is overpowered by the evil shaman and his undead troops. So tighten your seat belt, pick up the gun and engage the evil shaman in a battle set in another fantasy world. I can’t really explain it because it’s something you need to experience personally.
I thought the ride would be short but it turned out to be quite the opposite with plenty of excitements and things to shoot. As long as you let yourself immerse in it, I promise you will have fun and enjoy it. I know we did.
