> Cel­e­brate the fes­tive sea­son at Sun­way La­goon with the res­i­dents of Bikini Bot­tom

The Sun (Malaysia) - - FEATURE - DENISSA GOH

TAKE a plunge into the world of Sponge­Bob SquarePants and friends at Sun­way La­goon’s Nick­elodeon-themed land from now till Jan 1 and en­joy a fes­tive cel­e­bra­tion to re­mem­ber.

Join the res­i­dents of Bikini Bot­tom from the pop­u­lar an­i­mated se­ries at Sponge­Bob’s Christ­mas La­goon where there will be plenty to see and do.

You will first be wel­comed by the Un­der the Sea Pa­rade con­sist­ing of a mul­ti­tude of sea char­ac­ters. Look out also for the Santa Walk Around with Cap­tain Quack and Lady Quack, all dressed up in fancy bright­ly­coloured cos­tumes for the fes­tive oc­ca­sion.

Then hop on­board the La­goon Ex­press Train ringing with fes­tive songs to bring in the Christ­mas cheer as it takes you to Sponge­Bob’s Christ­mas La­goon.

Stand­ing right out­side the un­der­wa­ter won­der­land is the 20foot-tall Coral Christ­mas Tree em­bel­lished with colour­ful corals, sea­weed and seashells.

En­ter and plunge right into a soak­ing wet ad­ven­ture at the la­goon as well as lots of ac­tiv­i­ties to keep your en­tire fam­ily oc­cu­pied through­out the day.

For the chil­dren, there’s Santa’s Work­shop at the La­goona Ter­race with art and craft ac­tiv­i­ties such as mak­ing their very own Christ­mas trees out of pa­per cups.

Take a stroll to the Bub­ble Jel­ly­fish Field at the Ex­plorer’s Camp­site near Sponge­Bob Splash Ad­ven­ture to try your hand at cre­at­ing gi­ant bub­bles.

Be mes­merised also by the Christ­mas-themed Mali Cove Dance Show and Aloha Dance Show as well as en­joy fun games, like the Mini Telematch, tak­ing place at var­i­ous spots around the park.

Of course, the oc­ca­sion is not com­plete with­out meet­ing Santa Claus and tak­ing a photo or two, or telling him what you want for Christ­mas this year!

Be­tween Dec 19 and 25, there will be Christ­mas car­olling at the Sun­way La­goon’s main en­trance at 10am daily.

You also get to take part in the Christ­mas Chal­lenge which of­fers a three­day-two-night stay at the Sun­way Pyra­mid Ho­tel Fam­ily Suite as well as four ad­mis­sion tick­ets worth a to­tal of RM3,700! To par­tic­i­pate, just re­fer to the Christ­mas Chal­lenge Map at the park, and com­plete all five ac­tiv­i­ties at the des­ig­nated lo­ca­tions. Then fill in a form with your de­tails as well as a cre­ative slo­gan and sub­mit the com­pleted form at the sta­tion lo­cated at La­goona Ter­race in Nick­elodeon Lost La­goon. At the re­cent launch of Sponge­Bob’s Christ­mas La­goon, Sun­way La­goon gen­eral man­ager Sean Choo said that since the open­ing of the Nick­elodeon Lost La­goon ear­lier this year, the team wanted to con­tinue of­fer­ing mem­o­rable ex­pe­ri­ences for its guests.

“We be­lieve this year-end Sponge­Bob’s Christ­mas La­goon event prom­ises a good time for the whole fam­ily and friends.”

Choo added that hav­ing been hon­oured with a num­ber of awards this year, which in­clude the Top 5 Best Wa­ter Park in Asia by TripAd­vi­sor’s 2016 Trav­ellers’ Choice and the HR Asia Best Com­pa­nies to Work For in Asia 2016 by HR Asia, the team takes these “as mo­ti­va­tion to move for­ward and bring a bet­ter ex­pe­ri­ence to all our park-go­ers”.
