Sun­way’s mas­sive theme part is a fam­ily va­ca­tion for ev­ery­one

Plan­ning a fam­ily va­ca­tion is not an easy task es­pe­cially when there are so many dif­fer­ing de­mands from fam­ily mem­bers. Few des­ti­na­tions if any have shown enough bravado to at­tempt the mam­moth task of pulling to­gether all these de­mands but hope re­mains in the form of a theme park for those who are fret­ting. If you’re one of those who are still wrestling over the ideal lo­ca­tion to pitch the va­ca­tion tent, why not con­sider the Sun­way’s the Lost World of Tambun (LWOT).

There’s a rea­son the park refers to it­self as be­ing “More than just a theme park!” be­cause it cer­tainly as­pires to be so. Whether its is fun-rides, team build­ing ac­tiv­i­ties or a serene en­vi­ron­ment of beauty that you seek, LWOT cer­tainly hopes to ful­fil them in its own unique way.

Housed within the theme park are an ar­ray of of­fer­ings which in­clude its Wa­ter and Amuse­ment Park, its nat­u­rally oc­cur­ring hot springs and spas, an ad­ven­ture park, an­i­mal pet­ting zoos and its very own unique trib­utes to the his­tory and the won­ders of the town of Tambun.

Play­ing with wa­ter in­vokes the fond­est mem­o­ries of child­hood for some and the many ex­cit­ing and thrilling ac­tiv­i­ties within the park would cer­tainly help form some un­for­get­table mem­o­ries for your kids. Mea­sur­ing a to­tal of 76.7 me­tres in length, LWOT’S “Cliff Racer” which seats 2 is the longest in­flat­able twin speed coaster in Malaysia. Fly down the coaster at break-neck speeds and ex­pe­ri­ence the pure adren­a­line thrill as you rush down to­wards a jun­gle canopy. If the adren­a­line route is not your cup of tea, coast­ing down LWOT’S 660 me­tre “Ad­ven­ture River”, South East Asia’s longest river ad­ven­ture, would have you pass­ing through beautiful caves and other oneof-a-kind wa­ter fea­tures. Be sure to hold on though as “sur­prises” await you in the lengthy jour­ney.

Fancy a dry trail in­stead? Lupe’s Ad­ven­ture lo­cated in LWOT is the state’s first roller coaster ad­ven­ture ride and will cer­tainly of­fer a fair share of shrills and thrills. Ex­pe­ri­ence the trep­i­da­tion of the 24 seater roller coaster ex­pe­ri­ence which sets up right be­fore a scream in­duc­ing dive. Fancy your­self a pi­rate? Shiver your tim­bers as you step on-board “the Storm Rider”, a pi­rate boat that swings a 180 de­grees with a spine tin­gling ex­pe­ri­ence along with 40 other would-be swash­buck­lers.

Af­ter a long day of tours and theme parks, one can find com­fort in the re­ju­ve­nata­tive pow­ers of the spa of­fer­ings at LWOT. For chil­dren, the Saphira’s Lair is a world of lu­mi­nous and colour­ful lights set within the back­drop of a glow­ing rain­for­est. The for­est is also home to Saphira, a myth­i­cal yet ma­jes­tic green dragon. For moms and dads, the op­tion of the Lost World Steam Cave and the Crys­tal Spa where one may en­joy the restora­tive pow­ers of mas­sage and a steam sauna are also avail­able. The Crys­tal Spa of­fers a va­ri­ety of mas­sages which ranges from tra­di­tional malay uruts to hot stone mas­sages.
