After more than 3.5 months of closure due to the Movement Control Order (MCO), which was enacted in Malaysia on 18th March, 2020, Ipoh’s popular theme park, Sunway Lost World Of Tambun (LWOT), is back in action today, 4th July, after receiving the green light from the government to reopen on 1st July.
During the first 45 minutes of reopening, the water theme park welcomed a thousand enthusiastic visitors, all eager to have some long-awaited fun in the sun.
Present at the reopening were State Tourism Committee Chairperson, YB Dato’ Nolee Ashilin Mohammed Radzi, as guest-of-honour. She was accompanied by Tourism Perak Chief Executive Officer, Nurmalis Musa and Perak Tourism Association (PTA) President Datuk Hj. Mohd. Odzman Bin Abdul Kadir. Ipoh City Mayor YBhg. Dato’ Rumaizi Baharin was also in attendance.
As we are still under the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO) phase, this well-liked destination has adopted a new theme, “Play with Confidence, Stay with Confidence” to reflect that strict health guidelines as stipulated by the Health Ministry are followed, to ensure that the park is a safe tourist spot where visitors can enjoy themselves without unease. Obviously, all guests have to comply with the new normal, such as registration of attendance, temperature scanning and social distancing.
Meanwhile, the pool water is tested every two hours to check that its chlorine is maintained at the recommended level, according to LWOT general manager, Nurul Nuzairi Mohd Azahari.
Sunway Lost World Of Tambun opens daily from 10am until 11pm. It is closed on Tuesdays.
