About the Gravityz

The Gravityz is an obstacle course undertaken outside the 65th floor of Komtar Tower. As of now, Stage One of The Gravityz is completed. This stage comprises six attractions, called Confidence Path, High Bench, Great Bridge, X Point, Z Wire and G Rocky. Participants start at Confidence Path, which introduces them to dizzying heights of Komtar, and help them boost their confidence before continuing to the next attractions, which become progressively more challenging. All precautions are taken to ensure the complete safety of the participants. Before embarking on the course, participants are questioned whether they suffer from heights, and those with high-blood pressure have to reveal what is their pressure level, and whether they suffer from dizziness or vertigo.

Participants wear helmets and rope harnesses which allow them easy movement on the aerial pathways without any hindrance, and yet ensure their safety the whole time.

Update on The Gravityz

The Chief Minister of Penang, the Right Honourable Lim Guan Eng, gave a try to The Gravityz, together with his father Lim Kit Siang, on Saturday, 17 February, 2018.
