Kalkitos – The Great World Amusement Park

The Great World Amusement Park, which was established in 1929 and has since closed in 1978. The Kalkitos features iconic local hawkers, food, old theme park rides and games that one could find in the bustling amusement park. Games like the ‘Tikam Tikam’ and ‘Duck Duck’ were popular games, accompanied by local snacks like Kachang Puteh, Ice Ball, Satay and Kueh Tutu. This unique piece of Kalkitos hopes to re-visit the joy of The Great World Amusement Park which many of us today will never have the opportunity to experience first-hand.
