'Its A Hit' Baseball Cages
At the roof top of 1Utama shopping mall you can step into the fully automated baseball batting cages and enjoy the thrill of hitting a baseball hurtling towards you at 90km/h.
The last time I was at the 'It's A Hit' baseball cages I missed the first 5 balls, then I edged the next few before I caught 1 ball in the centre of the bat and the feeling of accomplishment when the ball rocketed into the netting gave me an adrenaline rush that kept me there for 2 hours! Superb Selangor entertainment.
Camp 5 Rock Climbing
1Utama is also home to the Camp 5 state of the art indoor rock climbing wall featuring 1,600sqm of roped climbing, 14 to 16m of lead climbing and 300sqm of bouldering.
It is certainly a place for both beginners and accomplished climbers to experience assailing the 27m high wall within an air conditioned environment on the 5th floor.
If after you have cut your teeth on the Camp 5 rock climbing wall you fancy the real deal then contact www.nomadadventure.com as they arrange rock climbing at Batu Caves and Bukit Takun in Selangor with real climbs for beginners and experienced climbers alike.
