Aside from shopping and dining, 1 Utama Shopping Centre prides itself for its multitude of leisure and entertainment options that cater to every age group out there. You can literally go from watching a movie and hitting up the karaoke centre with your pals, to taking part in adrenaline-fuelled activities such as indoor rock climbing and honing on your baseball skills at the batting cage.
And if those aren’t enticing enough, 1 Utama recently added two new exhilarating additions – AirRider (an indoor skydiving simulator) and FlowRider (a surf centre) – to its brand new wing, 1 Utama E, which in the future will also house plenty more F&B outlets alongside a selection of curated retail and specialty lifestyle shops, serving as an extension to 1 Utama Shopping Centre’s Old and New Wing.
Brought to you from Southern California, FlowRider essentially is a hybrid boardsport that involves catching waves that are flawlessly generated at 32km/h over a composite vinyl surface on top of a 3 inch sheet of water that builds a surfable wave. Whether you’re a beginner or an expert, the professional flow-boarders will not hesitate to teach you a trick or two, as long as you exceed the minimum height of 107cm.
If skydiving has a place on your bucket list, AirRider is where it is at. This indoor skydiving facility features an all-glass panelled circular wind tunnel with wind speeds of up to 250 km/h, and those who are new to flying also need not be concerned over safety as all the instructors and coaches at AirRider have been professionally trained and qualified by the International Bodyflight Association.
One FlowRider session is priced from RM45, whereas each AirRider session begins from RM32 per flight, so they are both super pocket-friendly.
