    Beautiful views - fun.
    Beautiful views and fun experience. No crowds on a Friday morning. Apparently if you have a reservation at the restaurant you don’t need admission - at least that is what I was told on the way down. But the ticket was not expensive. A little hard to find through the maze of shops and malls - just ask for “The Top” not the rainbow skybridge.

    Guide exhibitions well thought out
    Fun and well thought out exhibition. The Durian King of The Fruits and the State Gallery are well thought out and really interesting. I also went to the aquarium which is nice but a little disappointing. I found in the aquarium quite a few fish were mislabelled, for some fish the tank lights were too bright and to my horror they exhibit dyed fish.

    Durian Exhibition was fab!
    The Durian exhibition came with the Penang Gallery exhibition. It was great as we got a historical tour of the city and the king of the fruits! Love the part of when & where durian was first mentioned in history starting from the late middle ages either by a Portuguese or Spanish explorer (can’t remember now). Well worth the visit!

    Nice View, Poor Vibes
    Bought the 3-attraction package which included the Rainbow Walk, Jurassic and aquarium. The view at The Top is pretty good. Liked the Rainbow Walk which was short but exhilarating. However, everything else was rather poorly maintained. The building was old, aquarium was sad-looking etc. Took a look at the other offerings in the all-inclusive RM98 package but I don’t think it us worth the time or money.

    Good views. Skywalk is the highlight.
    It is good for the views. The activities are okay-ish. The price at which it is being offered is fair. Can easily spend 1-2 hours watching the sun set and the city lights coming on at night. Cafe/restaurant is average.

    Worth visit to the Tech Dome
    The children went UFO which is great disappointment, go round and round in low speed. More suitable for children under 5 I think. The Tech Dome is more suitable for teens. Will need about an hour in there. Go to pay entrance fee and then when you go in, there’s a few rides that you need to spend money on eg. free fall RM$6. But the children really enjoy it.

    Ignore all the other so-called attractions and enjoy the view from the observation deck
    The building stands out and is easy to find though once inside the sign-posting is very poor. Eventually I found the entrance to the observation deck, only to be sent on a hike back to a hidden ticket office. Second time lucky and I loved the observation deck, the roof and the skywalk.

The Dino Gym pointless for parents who just want to sit and watch their kids play no areas to sit unless you have socks on. It’s Malaysia it’s hot, the kids have socks let parents watch with shoes on.

The dinosaur park old and hot, you have to walk outside in the heat.

The building is empty and there are limited food options. If you are a tourist don’t bother. Their are good views of the city from other locations check out some of the other hotels that have rooftop bars. They don’t cost anything to enter and you can enjoy a drink or two for the price you pay at Komtar.

I noticed they have stop entry without a ticket and it’s obvious why. If you took a look at what’s available for kids you wouldn’t bother.

For a better option go to Cocoon at least they provide slides for parents to enter.

To reiterate if you are a tourist I would bother unless you a desperate to let your kids run around.

I was reticent as I’m not great with heights but I’m so glad we did it. It’s 68rm or 48rm if you’re over 60. Take ID. Security is bonkers, checking you every few feet and getting in isn’t as straightforward as it might seem but you’re always pointed in the right direction. The 65th floor is good. Don’t get stung for photos here. If you want official photos, wait until the 68th floor. Although selfies are just as good in my humble opinion. The views are fantastic and if you can overcome any fear of heights you may have, the glass walkway out over the edge is amazing. There’s no time limit on your stay. Enjoy it. The shop sells reasonably priced t-shirts, wraps and batik ties that you can’t get elsewhere. A great experience.

Rainbow Skywalk is the best place for you to conquer the fear of height. Congratulations as you did it ! Please come over again and chill at our rooftop bar during your next visit !

The lower floors of the building was pretty run down with dim lights and foul smelled toilet but The Top exceeded our expectations. The refurbishment of an old building was a great success. We were given a postcard at the ticketing counter to collect stamps from different attractions and send it back to our loved ones. We enjoyed most of the attractions particularly bumper car, durian museum, rainbow skywalk, jurassic research center, aquarium, the dome and the mirror maze. You can easily spend more than half a day here. There were also cultural performance from time to time.

Marvellous view but be aware if you are going to the Restaurant, you have to Buy a Voucher for 65 rm per Person. There are no Vegetarian Options available Except of appetisers. you have to order a Main Course First before you can Order an Appetizer or a Dessert. This is a Kind of Scam in my Opinion.

Very good view from the top of the building, best of all in Penang. Recommended, it will be great to visit around 5 pm, enjoying sunset from the tallest building in Penang. After finish with the view and photographs, then you can enjoy meal time at restaurant.

Very disappointing visit. Very poor information to get to the lift with endless escalators and poor directions winding through stores of plastic toys and adventure places. Possibly a better experience for families.
The view at top was good to get your bearings of the coast and Georgetown.
There were lots of guides organising us behind barriers to wait for a lift which seemed excessive for 2 or 4 people but may be needed with crowds.
There is also an opportunity to hang off ropes outside and take selfies and on the upper floor 68 a short horseshoe walkway with a glass floor can be used for the selfie addict!
Wish we hadn’t spent the time there!

Greetings from The Top Penang ! Visitors may directly enter to The Top area from Komtar Walk main entrance hence you will be in the themepark atmosphere rightaway :) You may visit the Avenue of Adventures @ Level 3, 4 and 5 on your next visit ! See you again !

All is great except the work station at Skywalk too busy at her mobile phone and the shoe cover is recycle however never sanitized. We are not comfortable to wear it as saw other removed from their shoe and put back the bin for other to use. As this period of Coronavirus and one of the virus spread from floor/shoe.
Suggest to provide a shoe and foot sanitizer before wearing the cover. Otherwise, do impose the cost during purchase of the entrance fee.

Had a disappointing and terrible experience, went to rainbow skywalk but not even 5 minutes it started to rain, had to go down to 65th floor to wait for the rain to stop, there wasnt even any activity or entertainment there to pass the time, the movie theater was apparently under maintenance, there was lack of staff and you cant even leave and re-enter later when the rain stops. Literally waited there doing nothing for 1 hour and ended up leaving with nothing but that 5 minutes of experience. Didnt even get to walk on the skywalk. What a joke. Highly do not recommend to waste your money or time here.
