    The Galleon

    by Wild_Orchid Written Apr 11, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Galleon which looks like a pirate ship is among the rides you can take when you have an ALL PARK pass. This ride was closed for maintenance on the day that we were there, but some naughty kids were playing on the ship when I took the picture.

    A Dreamy Ride

    by Wild_Orchid Updated Apr 11, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The African Pythons ride is a three-in-one kind of ride. Grab a pal, get hold of a brightly coloured large double tube and make your way up the stairs to the top.

    You can choose to ride completely in the dark, or or out in the open. For me, I love to close my eyes and let the slide take me around, sliding here and there in the pitch dark, before landing with a big splash.
    It's simply exhilitating - some kind of adrenaline high I guess!

    A MUST TRY when you are at Sunway Lagoon.

    This ride is open to adults and kids above 1.1 m tall.

    Cameroon Climb

    by Wild_Orchid Updated Apr 9, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of my personal favourite rides - get shot down the Cameroon Climb with your best pal. Seated in a double tube, you will shoot down a steep slide. Suddenly, you will feel like you're flying suspended in the air for a split second, before you crash down the slide and water splashes all around you and up again, before travelling backwards.

    Go for it! You'll love it for sure.

    Even my mother went on this ride and enjoyed it. So it is a good ride for all ages.

    land with a splash!

    Waters of Africa

    by Wild_Orchid Updated Apr 9, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    My favourite park within Sunway Lagoon is the Waters of Africa, which is the Water Park. As mentioned before, you can buy a ticket just for the water park alone. Frankly, for those who enjoy the water rides, a full day is not enough and if you buy an ALL PARK ticket, you shall be rushing too much.

    The picture shows the entrance to the Waters of Africa, and in the background are a few castle towers. They do look really authentic don't they? The best thing is you don't have to actually walk down the long path to get to the water park. There is an escalator that you get on which will take you to the locker & change room areas and the Water Park entrance.

    Kalahari Kids - a New Attraction for the Kids

    by Wild_Orchid Updated Apr 9, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the newest attractions for kids is the Kalahari Kids park. It is very attractive, with a number of slow & gentle water slides, a mother hippo and baby hippo that look very real and best is the gigantic bucket which fills up and randomly pours down on unsuspecting kids. When that happens, you can hear the kids screaming with delight. For me, Ifound it rather hypnotic to watch the gigantic bucket tip right and left and fill up and you've got to be wondering when it is going to make it's next move! LOL!!

    What a shame for us adults because Kalahari Kids is only for those under 12.

    Victoria Waterfalls

    by Wild_Orchid Updated Apr 9, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Victoria Falls are a key feature at Sunway Lagoon. The falls splash from high up where the parking area is down towards the waver pool area. Lots of kids & adults love to stand right under the falls for a splashy shower.

    Water Park Entrance

    by Wild_Orchid Updated Apr 9, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After getting off the escalator, you'll pass by a cheerful & colourful shop that sells souveniors, sun block and swimwear. Next is the locker and change rooms. Immediately after this is the Water Park Entrance.

    At the Water Park Entrance, your wrist tag will be subtly checked by the staff stationed there before you enter the Park. Each wrist tag will state the date, and whether it is for ALL PARK or WATER PARK.

    Surfing at Sunway Lagoon

    by Wild_Orchid Updated Mar 29, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Budding surfers who can't travel to Bali or Australia may want to visit Sunway Lagoon. Although I don't surf, I find that it's still fun to watch the surfers there. On weekends, you can see them competing hard to see who can top the other in showing off their moves.

    For the less adventurous, there's lots of fun to be had at the wave pool. The water there is heated and it is so comfortable to soak in it, and be gently bounced around by the man-made waves.

    Surfing Hours
    Weekends and School Holidays Only

    Body Board: 2.30pm-3.30pm
    Surfing: 4.30pm-5.30pm

    Picture shows the wave pool, not the surf pool

    Sunway Lagoon-Opening Hours & Where to Park

    by Wild_Orchid Updated Mar 25, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Park's entrance is being refurbished. At the moment, the Park's Ticketing Counter & Entrance is temporarily located on LEVEL 3 of the Multi-storey Car Park, which also serves the Pyramid Shopping Centre and Sunway Convention Centre.

    Tickets may be purchased for ALL PARK or WATER PARK. Chidren aged 3-12 and senior citizens have a discounted ticket. Children below 3 enter for free.

    Opening Hours:
    Mon, Wed, Thur & Fri 11 am - 6pm
    Sat, Sun, School & Public Hol 10 am - 6pm
    Closed on Tuesdays except during Malaysian school holidays and public holidays

    I personally prefer just the Water Park because my kids & I don't enjoy the roller coaster or fast rides. They're too young for most of the rides available in the Dry Park. Also, we're all water babies!!

    MPPJ FC - The Malaysian Champions.

    by st_hannes Written Jun 12, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I don't know why most PJ folks throng mamak shops at night to get a glimpse of EPL teams who are ignorant of our existence..

    We pay cable tv, and support their astronomical salaries, and do they even stop over here and give our kids some footie lesson? Nope, they go to Singapore and Thailand instead..

    And when they do arrive here, they give us athrashing and hide in their hotel rooms. No walk around Bintang Walk or get together with the fans at the local mamak shop where we bestow them their legendary status.

    Sorry, but believe it or not, PJ footie fans have their own champions in the form of MPPJ FC. Being the first club to win the coveted Malaysia Cup, the attack, spearheaded by the remarkable Juan Manuel Arostegui is a sight to behold.

    With their fluent passing game and excellent showmanship, they have been the envy of state teams, long plagued by notions of corruption and power struggle.

    Tickets for a Premier League game is a snip at RM10.That, plus unlimited post-game photo opportunities. And don't worry, they don't go hiding in their hotel rooms after the game..

    Viva Black Widows!

    Sunway Lagoon...

    by coceng Written Apr 10, 2004

    If the previous photo was taken by me before setting my feet on the bridge, then this photo was taken while I was 'hanging' on the bridge...looking back to capture the entrance where I started from...Well, you get the idea anyway.

    The tunnel actually is leading to the Water Park also, if you don't want to enter the Water Park through the normal entrance.
    You come to another side of the Water Park where the (artificial) beach is waiting for you !
