    Sunway Waterpark: Victoria Falls, Lake Keriba

    by machomikemd Written Jun 20, 2014

    The Sunway Lagoon Waterpark and Surf Beach is easily the most popular area of the Sunway Lagoon and they have many rides and attractions. The only problem we had is that due to the rains (they close the attractions during inclement weather) , they closed the rides so we could not possbily do all of them, so we just settled on hanging around Victoira Falls, Lake Keriba, The Wave Pool and Zambezi River as these areas are still possible to go even when it was raining.

    The Sunway Waterpark and Surfbeach comprises almost half of the area of the Sunway Lagoon and is derinitely the main attraction of the Theme Park. It has quite a number of attractions for guests like Zulu Walk, Waterpark 5D, Cameroon Climb, African Pythons, Vuvuzela, Congo Challenge, Kalahari Kids, Little Zimbabwe, Lake Keriba, Zambezi River, Victoria Falls, Giant Tipping Bucket and the Wave Pool.

    .
    you also need to rent inflatable tubes to ride some of the attractions like Vuvuzela, African Pythons, Congo Challenge.

    Sunway Lagoon Waterpark: Waterplexx 5 D

    by machomikemd Written Jun 20, 2014

    one silverlining when it rains in Sunway Lagoon is that although most of the rides and attractions are automatically closed, the waterplexx 5 D ride is not! as it is located inside an enclosed area.

    the waterplexx 5 D ride is only for people who are in swimming attire as this ride will really get you wet! the difference between 4 d ride and 5 d rides is that in 4 d ride, they only splash a little water or air on you while on the attraction, while in 5 d, you get really soaked! and the seatrs vibrate instead of moving, so there are no seatbelts here.

    you are ushered into a dark theater like room and given colored glasses and the ride via the large movie screen commences and you will be showered with lots of water while in this 4 minute ride.

    Just across the Street of Persiaran Lagoon, which is the main street facing the Sunway Pyramid Hotel and Sunway Pyramid Mall is the several street blocks called Jalan PJS 11/28, which can be considered the budget area in Bandar Sunway as this block contains budget hotels, budget restaurans (some are 24 hours), a KFC Store, budget sports bars and even a mini hawker center filled with local malaysian streetfood just across the Police Block beside the CIMB Bank Branch, Medical Clinic, Dental Clinic, Massage Spas (no hanky panky stuff!) and a 7-11 convenience store.

    So if you want to try the budget experience in Bandar Sunway, then hop across the street to Jalan PJS 11/28 area.

    Menara MPPJ

    by mansionion Written Jan 7, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Menara MPPJ (MPPJ Tower) is probably the most notable landmark of PJ. This ultra-modern 27 storey building is among the tallest building in PJ. The building housed the offices of the Petaling Jaya municipal council.

    A favourite with the kids-Ahoy there!

    by Wild_Orchid Updated Aug 9, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Waterplay is certainly fun for the kids when there's a ship to be explored. With nooks and cranies to be explored, slides and rope sails to climb, the young ones will be happy to spend hours here. Apart from that, it is certainly attractive with bright colours that will certainly charm the young ones.

    PS. I have to admit to having tried out the "baby" slides that are on this ship too. (hehe)

    Ship ahoy!

    Race with your friends in the Congo Challenge

    by Wild_Orchid Updated Aug 1, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Take your family and friends on the Congo Challenge. For me, this is one of the best & most fun slides for all the family Children can also go on this ride (if they are above 1.1 m tall) too.

    Grab a rubber mat, climb up a short distance, get into your racing lanes, wait for the whistle and off you go. May the best man win!

    Sunway Lagoon

    by Wild_Orchid Updated Apr 18, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Located just 15 minutes from Petaling Jaya and 30 minutes from Kuala Lumpur, Sunway Lagoon has something for everyone.

    When this park first opened in 1992, I rushed there with two of my colleagues. It was such a memorable experience that we continue to talk about the experience and it feels like just yesterday that we were there!

    I visited late last year and again in March 2005 and lately, I've noticed that the rides have been changed to become more family oriented. Children & teens will certainly enjoy their time here.

    Update: For those who want to try a new theme park, the Sunway Group has created a new park called The Lost World of Tambun, Ipoh. The water slides there are even bigger than the ones here at Sunway Lagoon.
