The Genting Monorail is a theme park monorail service at Genting Highlands. The trains are designed to look like caterpillars. This monorail was the first in Malaysia, and the service began in 1994.[4] In July 2013, along with Corkscrew and Grand Prix Fun Kart, the Genting monorail service ceased operations.[2]

In 1992 the trains of the monorail were used at the Dutch Floriade before they were sold to the Malaysian theme park.
