A Day At Sunway Lagoon

26 April 2002 15:17

Ever since Sunway Lagoon opened its doors to the public like almost a decade ago, I have yet to go there to see what they offer. Well, since today is a public holiday in conjunction with the installation of the new Yang Dipertuan Agong, Bart, Penang and I took the opportunity to spend half a day at the amusement park. We took on the rides multiple times since the wasn't any queue to talk about in the first place. Upon entering, we were mighty disappointed already when we were told that the waterpark section is closed for repairs. Anyways, since we were there, we just tried to make the best out of it. The first one we tried was the Tomahawk which is essentially two giant pendulums that takes the riders on a 360 loop a few times. It was then off to the Runaway Train, a roller coaster ride that takes the riders up and down a few dips, valleys and caves. We went on to try out the Colorado Splash, Grand Canyon River Rapids and Niagra Falls Flume Ride before we took a dip in the Surf Pool. Overall, I'd say it's rather okay. The rides are rather mild though (yet Bart and Penang still had to hold on to the handles while riding them as opposed to just letting your hands free like the way it SHOULD!). My opinion is of course, biased since I have been exposed to amusement/theme parks of bigger and badder magnitudes when I was in the States (Can anybody sayCedar Point, Six Flags orBusch Gardens?). They oughtta improve it a lot though and not leave most of the rides and attractions just as it is in its current state.
