January 17, 2020

The new Beast Park activity centre in the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur is aiming to not only offer climbing and adventure sports facilities but to also become a social and community space.

Located in a 2,000 metre², 15 metre-high warehouse-type space in the Bukit Bintang shopping and entertainment area of Kuala Lumpur, the facility has over 950 metre² of its walls are fitted with climbing holds as well as offering a four metre-high bouldering wall, while its walls for top rope climbing reach 10 metres and lead climbing attain 15 metres.

Designed as a place that is physical, social, fun and brings together a community of all ages, Beast Park also includes an obstacle course with nine obstacles including rope swings, spin cycle, warped walls, a Bosu ground, jump tubes and bars.

As well as offering a fun accompaniment to the centre's climbing walls, the course can be used as a training facility and has equipment for timing users.

For children, there is a playground that includes nets, bouldering walls guided by LED lights and a junior obstacle course.

In addition to the various activity offers, there is a café and there are spaces for guests to gather and socialise.

The large building makes ample use of natural light and also allows space for a hanging light installation designed by Jun Ong.

Thibault Paquin, Chief Executive of destination consultancy Celebrating Life who partnered on the project, explained "Beast Park is designed as a place that is physical, social, fun and brings together a community of all ages through a seamless guest experience incorporating social activities, cool vibes, quality food and drinks and a focus on repeat visitation."

The project was started in February 2019 and was completed before Christmas.
