How to go:
- By Car - check Google map - 'Wet World Shah Alam'. Parking is free! It's next to an aquarium/fish shop.

[By bus] Bus U80 (RM2.50 one-way from KL Sentral) will stop in front of SIRIM Shah Alam, then you can walk to the theme park :)

Attire: Shirts and shorts/sweat pants are allowed. If possible wear AFS shirts so we can take some nice pictures.
