Fun Times at Sunway Lost World Of Tambun

Lost World Of Tambun

Sunway Lost World Of Tambun is located in Sunway City Ipoh, a picturesque area, at the outskirts of the busy town of Ipoh. It is a great place to run away from the hustle and bustle of the city and to spend time with the family, especially young children.

It was my first time at Sunway Lost World Of Tambun last week for the launch of the new Lost World Of Tambun’s Hot Springs & Spa as well as a visit to the parks. I have always loved and enjoyed going to Sunway Lagoon and it’s theme park. Did I have as much fun at Sunway Lost World Of Tambun?

Sunway Lost World Of Tambun

The Lost World Of Tambun consists of the Water Park, Amusement Park, Tiger Valley, Tin Valley, Adventure Park, Petting Zoo and the Hot Springs & Spa.

Apart from the Hot Springs & Spa, the other parks operates in the day which closes at 6pm. With such ample time, there are many attractions to be seen, ride and enjoy while you are here.

I managed to get on a few rides myself, enjoy petting and feeding some beautiful animals at the petting zoo and even managed to let out some screams in the house of horror.

  • Water Park

Did you know that there’s a wave pool at the Jungle Wave Bay that can go up to as high as 3 feet high? It’s like a mini tsunami! There’s also the Sandy Bay for a beach volleyball game with friends and family. Of course, I would go for the more “adrenaline-pumping” activities like the Cliff Racer, sliding on the tube from the top of the hill or the Tube Raiders where there are four different slides to try. Or just floating on the tube at the more relaxed Adventure River works fine with me too.

  • Amusement Park

There’s the rollercoaster, carousel, locomotive ride and flying in the air. However, the only ride I went on was the Dragon Flights ride where I sat in a swing-chair and spinning around feeling like I am about to be thrown to the nearby hill as well as the Storm Rider where I am in a pirate boat, swinging 1800 for 5 minutes. Some of the guys felt 5 minutes was more than enough.

  • Tiger Valley

Housing two male tigers, Putra and Jazz, these brothers are the good-looking version of furry cats that swims in the moat and jump over the rocks and logs. I love tigers, so I don’t mind staying near this valley for many hours.

  • Tin Valley

Have you ever tried tin mining using the “dulang“? It takes a lot of patience, bending and swishing the water and sand in the “dulang” in order to get the tin in the end. This job is definitely not for me. I’m afraid I might not be able to stand straight at the end of the day.

  • Adventure Park

Now, this is more I like it. Abseiling, Ziplining and High Ropes Course near a lake and listening to soothing sound of a 60-feet waterfall while surrounded by limestone environment is definitely something I love. I wish the weather was not so hot though but this is a great place for team building activities. Make sure you’re fit for the climbing and roping!

  • Petting Zoo

Birds chirping on your shoulder, chicken near your feet and surrounded by forest sounds? How can you not love the petting zoo? If you’re the more “adventurous” type and would like to hold a snake (albeit an albino), you can do so at this petting zoo too. Don’t worry, there are handlers here and they will assist you with your questions and petting. But please people, don’t pluck their feathers or harm them in any way. The animals is to be loved, not be hurt.

Sunway Lost World Of Tambun Hot Springs & Spa

Lost World Of Tambun

The newly launched Hot Springs & Spa section is large. It is located on the other side of the Lost World with it’s own water park and pools. The Hot Springs & Spa is truly a place to relax and rejuvenate after a long day of adventure and fun.

I enjoyed the hot springs and it’s various degree of temperature. Sitting in the jacuzzi-like 450 C pool or wading in the not-so-hot pool with friends made us laugh all night long. There’s the Saphira’s Lair, with it’s green dragon and 400 C water temperature. The Lost World Steam Cave is an exciting cave where you can sweat and chat with friends as you imagine having an adventure tunneling into the deep end. There’s a 40 feet tall geyser sprouting thermal hot springs water at the Geyser of Tambun and well as pebble fitted floor for a foot reflexology in the water.

It certainly was a fun place to be, especially when you’re with friends or family members. Yes, the water is warm but that adds up to the fun!

There are so many more that can be found and experienced here, especially the relaxing spa treatments. After a long day of fun, a rejuvenating massage or beauty care is definitely a boon. The prices are quite affordable too.
