KUALA LUMPUR: The water interactive sensory area of the recently opened Exchange TRX mall has been closed.
In a viral post on X by @SkyscrapersMY, the area was reportedly damaged and had to be closed temporarily pending repairs.
The images showed barriers were set up around the areas to avoid people from using it.
The area was built specifically for children for sensory stimulation activities, but it was treated by the visitors as a 'waterpark'.
Users of X continued to bash mall goers for their irresponsible act of damaging the area within a week of the mall's opening.
"First class facilities but third class mentality," said X user @AlifNasir_.
Another X user @skyflyingace anticipated that the worst could happen to the area after the recent incident.
"When i was there d other day, I told myself that soon it will eventually become spoilt," the user said.
Previously, the New Straits Times reported of the antics of some visitors at the mall which gone viral on social media.
The video showcased a large number of families utilising the playground's water attractions, creating an environment reminiscent of a waterpark.
