Discover a hidden world covering ten acres of lush tropical rainforest within a jungle previously “lost” to the public! This is now a reality as Sunway and Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) announce the opening of the first Nickelodeon themed attraction in Asia, Nickelodeon Lost Lagoon in Sunway Lagoon in Malaysia.
The launch was attended by guest of honour, Selangor Chief Minister, Yang Amat Berhormat Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Bin Ali; Sunway Group founder and chairman Tan Sri Dr. Jeffrey Cheah; Sunway Group deputy chairman Tan Sri Datuk Seri Razman M. Hashim, and Mark Whitehead, Executive Vice President and Managing Director, VIMN Asia. Attendees at the launch event were privy to a showcase of fireworks and the iconic Nickelodeon green slime that marked the opening of the park to the public.
No stone was left unturned in the creation of Nickelodeon Lost Lagoon which boasts 14 immersive attractions, some of which are themed with Nickelodeon’s hit properties, including SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora the Explorer, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Visitors to Nickelodeon Lost Lagoon can expect an exhilarating experience thanks to interactive play areas, which use the latest in reactive technology in addition to a daily signature slime event, a variety of waterslide rides, retail shops, games and a myriad of food service establishments and more. Suitable for all ages, visitors might even have the chance to meet and greet their favourite Nickelodeon characters at Nickelodeon Lost Lagoon!
“This park is a fantastic addition to Sunway Lagoon and one that will greatly boost the appeal of Selangor as a tourist destination. Nickelodeon Lost Lagoon perfectly complements Selangor’s existing array of attractions and will also be a boon to the nation’s growing tourism industry,” said Yang Amat Berhormat Dato’ Seri Mohamed Azmin Bin Ali, Chief Minister of Selangor.
Built with an investment of more than RM100 million, Nickelodeon Lost Lagoon is the result of a joint initiative between Sunway Group and VIMN, lending yet another layer of top-notch family-based fun to Sunway Lagoon’s five existing parks, which include its Water Park, Amusement Park, Extreme Park, Interactive Wildlife Park and Lynton V Harris Scream Park.
Nickelodeon Lost Lagoon opens to the public on 3 February 2016. Opening hours are from 10:00am to 6:00pm every Monday to Sunday.
