Lost World of Tambun

Lost World of Tambun
Mignon Postumus

The new RM60 million water theme park "Lost World of Tambun" is located in the historic town of Ipoh in the middle of the North-South corridor in Perak. Ideally located between Penang and Kuala Lumpur.

The park will provide a much-anticipated family leisure attraction for anyone in the area.  
It's expected to attract 450,000 visitors annually.
The theme park is landscaped with vines, creepers and lush tropical plants to give the illusion of a Lost World.  The park is the sister theme park of Sunway Lagoon in Petaling Jaya.  It is opened since Nov 2004.


Lost World

The theme park is two hours drive north from Kuala Lumpur and one-hour and a half drive from Penang. It opens from 12:00 noon until 7 p.m. on weekdays. On weekends, school and public holidays, the park opens at 10:00 a.m. It closes on Tuesdays except if the day falls on Malaysian school and public holidays. The entry fees are RM21 per adult and RM16 per child.

Besides the special rides such as Tube Raiders (sliding down with large tubes), Cliff Racer (top speed mine carts) and Jungle Wave Bay (the huge wave pool with nine different waves), the park also has a Tiger Valley with three adult tigers on an island resembling their natural habitat the first of its kind in Malaysia. It's the home to Siberian tigers, Sultan and Jessie, Jessies year-old Siberian-Bengal male cubs, Lovie and Rock, female Siberian-Bengal tiger Raima and her three cubs, Azian, Aqila and Putra, which have only recently opened their eyes. 
Another special attraction is the pool filled with hot mineral water from the Tambun hot springs, which is renowned locally for its therapeutic properties. Those who prefer less strenuous activities can be set adrift on the Adventure River encircling the theme park, as the ride gives a leisurely view of the whole area.
Behind the breathtaking facade of the Lost World, one gets the feeling of wandering into a lost civilisation, not unlike those featured in the Indiana Jones and Raider of the Lost Arc movies.

You can start the adventure at Adventure River and get transported on a long river ride, with giant waves providing the thrills. It's running 600m around the theme park, the river passes through ruins with special effects like smoke, light, the sounds of monkeys, elephants and insects, and water sprays.  The brave-hearted can check out the Cliff Racer twin speed coaster slides using tubes.    The Explora Bay kids zone has smaller slides and fountains. 
A favourite with both kids and adults in this zone is the tipping bucket, which overturns when it is filled to the brim, splashing water onto everyone beneath. 

There is also the Jungle Wave Pool with seven wave patterns that can rise up to one metre high.  
Beyond the wave pool, the adventure continues with the Tube Raiders which comprises four different tube slides measuring between 113m and 115m that end at the edge of a pool.  
The most interesting and thrilling slide is the one wherein the adventurer is engulfed in complete darkness when passing through it. 
After a long day of fun and adventure, visitors can relax or rejuvenate themselves by soaking in a bathing pool which is fed with 100% natural spring water from the famous Tambun hot springs nearby. 
Entrance to the Lost World of Tambun is RM21 per adult and RM16 per child.
