3 MINGEN SIEW and her sisters pose amid picturesque scenery at Jugra Hill in Kuala Langat, Selangor after watching paragliders in action.

STEP inside Sunway Lagoon in Petaling Jaya for non-stop adrenaline-rush fun – from free-falling into a seemingly endless spiral down Nickelodeon Lost Lagoon’s Monsoon 360 to the spine-tingling journey through the dark pathways of Scream Park and a close encounter with nature in Wildlife Park.

Offering memorable experiences for everyone, the theme park, which is reputed as Asia’s Best Attraction, is home to some thrilling rides. There are over 90 rides and attractions that are spread across its six themed parks: Water Park, Amusement Park, Extreme Park, Wildlife Park, Scream Park and Nickelodeon Lost Lagoon — the first Nickelodeon-branded attraction in Asia.

There are also the World’s First Waterplexx 5D and Vuvuzela, Malaysia’s Largest Water Ride as well as Malaysia’s Largest Man-made Sandy Surf Beach.

With this list of electrifying experiences, one might wonder if it’s even possible to get through all these attractions in just one day? But then again with so much to experience, why limit yourself to just one day of fun?

Sunway Lagoon opens daily from 10am to 6pm. Tickets are priced at RM170 for adults above the age of 13 and RM150 for those aged 12 and below.
