Brace yourself! Malaysia’s first-ever Day Of The Dead event is happening during the entire month of October in conjunction with Halloween at the Lost World of Tambun, and this is an occasion that’s not to be passed up on!
Step into the Lost World of Tambun and embrace the Mexican traditions of honouring the dead as you get awestruck at the sight of the artistry that lies within the theme park’s famed mystical Luminous Forest, which is turned into the Forest of the Dead in October.
Get the batteries of your camera and handphone charged to the max as you are guaranteed plenty of Instagram-worthy shots while you journey through beauty, art and death at the theme park, a first of its kind experience in the country, right here in Ipoh’s Lost World of Tambun.
“This year’s theme is on the concept of artistic beauty and death as found in the traditional Mexican Day Of The Dead art. We wish to introduce to our visitors something different from the regular American-style of Halloween celebration that we see on popular media. We want to introduce our visitors to another style of Halloween’’, said Nurul Nuzairi, General Manager of the theme park.
He continued, “Each year with every festive campaign that we celebrate, our team works extra hard to put together a wholly unique concept where death is seen as being beautiful as opposed to being grotesque, and where life after death is celebrated and not forgotten.’’
“As an international-standard theme park, we strive to break the creative threshold every year to be even louder and bolder than ever before. Celebrating Halloween with lights, colour and style is something that we are truly proud of at this year’s ‘Day Of The Dead’ theme.’’
Did you know that in Mexico, the Day of the Dead or Día de Muertos is a day of remembrance for those who have departed? The festival is known internationally for its festive art, namely the skull art.
This year, the Lost World of Tambun draws inspiration from this well-known and aesthetic festival to stand out from the rest of the Halloween celebrations in Asia. The positive vibe that this fest offers makes it ideal for the enjoyment of the entire family.
Guests at the Lost World of Tambun can have their faces painted based on the Day Of The Dead-inspired art with luminous paint, try their hands at making their own Voodoo dolls, have their fortunes told by a ghostly Tarot card reader and also take a wefie with different supernatural characters.
This month-long Day Of The Dead theme features The Beauty Of Death Parade, A Night To Remember, DJ El Loco Party, The Touch Of The Dead as well as the Soul Of The Fire. To wrap up this exciting month of celebration, join the Party Of The Dead, a themed party that will be hosted on 31st October.
Visitors who dress up in a Halloween costume will enjoy a 50% discount on the Night Park ticket (published rate) on the 31st of October as part of the park’s walk-in promotion. Each package includes entrance to Party Of The Dead, a Blood Bag Drink or a Devil Horn Headband.
