Escape Cameron Highlands is an upcoming nature-based adventure park

Malaysia will soon get another theme park in the highlands, this time amid the cool surroundings of Cameron Highlands. Escape Cameron Highlands is an upcoming nature-based adventure park that will be built into the natural hilly landscape of the popular holiday spot in Pahang.  

The first phase of the theme park, spanning across a 60-acre (24.28ha) valley at an elevation of 220m, is scheduled to open in the first half of 2023. Upon completion, the European-themed park will be the first of its kind in the region to offer an outdoor ski attraction within an equatorial climate.  

Its developer Sim Leisure Group has assured that the park will preserve the natural habitat of Cameron Highlands, setting the trend for sustainable theme park development. Construction of the venue will adopt a low impact development approach in design and execution.  

“Escape Cameron Highlands will adopt our signature minimalist approach to construction, minimal disturbance to nature, lots of tree planting, minimal use of energy, rainwater harvesting, and lots of recycling initiatives,” said Sim Leisure Group founder and chief executive officer Sim Choo Kheng.  

The upcoming theme park, Sim said, will be a “zero-energy facility”. “We will rely 100% on renewable energy which will come mainly from our photovoltaic facility, some from wind turbines and mini hydropower,” he explained.

On the decision to build a theme park in Cameron Highlands, Sim said it boiled down to the destination’s untapped potential. “Cameron Highlands is definitely more than just nice weather, vegetables and strawberries. It has a huge potential of becoming a world-class family friendly destination,” he said.  

This marks the third Escape brand of theme parks in Malaysia after Escape Penang and Escape Challenge in Petaling Jaya, Selangor.
