Sunway Lost World Of Tambun
Sunway Lost World Of Tambun is a self-contained and well managed theme park that is run by the Sunway group. It is the only theme park in Southeast Asia with natural hot springs. It also has seven amazing attractions, a hawker center and a hotel. The theme park was built on a tin-mining wasteland. It is located at the outskirt of the historic town of Ipoh.
The landscaping at Lost World is beautiful but what sets it apart from other theme parks in Malaysia is its superb setting. The park is surrounded by lush tropical jungle, natural hot springs and breathtaking limestone features as old as 400 million years. Between the hills and the architecture, it does feel like you are in some gorgeous lost world.
The seven attractions are the Lost World Water Park, Lost World Amusement Park, Lost World Tiger Valley, Lost World Tin Valley, Lost World Adventure Park, Lost World Petting Zoo and Lost World Hot Springs & Spa By Night.
Lost World Water Park has a lazy river, the Malaysia’s biggest Jungle Wave Pool, an extensive sandy beach and a couple of giant water slides called Cliff Racer and Tube Raiders. There is also a pool play area for younger kids. Occasionally, there would be a “pool party” with music and live dancing to enhance the visitors playful mood. Overseeing the water attraction is a limestone pinnacle and 8 meters high “Needle of Tambun” as known as “Pencil Hill”.
Lost World Amusement Park has land based amusement rides such as the Perak’s first roller coaster Lupe’s Adventure, The Giddy Galleon, Storm Rider, Dragon Flight, a carousel and a train ride that tours around the park.
Lost World Tiger Valley is a permanent home and playground to Siberian tigers, which are rescued from the Great Uzbekistan circus troupe. The valley is designed mimicking the large feline’s habitat. It offers the visitors the chance to watch Siberian Tigers showing off their agility and strength at feeding time.
Ipoh is known to many as a home to a lot of tin. Lost World Tin Valley offers the young visitors to learn the history of tin mining and experience the “Dulang Washing”(Tin Ore Panning) by doing the process themselves.
Lost World Adventure Park is built within limestone hills. It is designed for team building challenges. There are 13 high rope course set around the “Needle of Tambun” for activities that build trust and foster the communication among the teams. Other activities include rock climbing at limestone rock wall and zip lining along the lake.
Lost World Petting Zoo is a well laid out where the children and adults can see and interact with various animal and bird species such as raccoons, rabbits, hamsters, parrots, goats, deer, snakes, lizards, peacocks, tortoises and more. The hamster enclosure there is very interesting with so much piping and so many wheels for the hamsters to play. The developers have taken care to preserve the natural setting and vegetation as far as possible when constructing the zoo area and they have done a good job.
Lost World Hot Springs & Spa By Night is a unique feature that Lost World of Tambun has to offer. There are a number of pools, Jacuzzi and a steam cave where you can enjoy the health-giving benefits of natural hot mineral spring water. The hot springs are open for evening sessions when the air temperature cools down a bit. Attached to the hot springs are the massage facilities and a bistro.
