Have a Kool Raya

BOTH Sunway Lagoon in Bandar Sunway and Lost World of Tambun in Ipoh are offering guests some splashing great fun in their festive campaigns.

Sunway Lagoon promises the coolest raya ever with its Kool Raya campaign starting from tomorrow till June 24.

Besides being greeted with the Kool Raya Welcoming Dance and Captain Quack and Lady Quack’s wacky Joget Lambak moves, visitors to the theme park from tomorrow to Sunday will also receive raya packets with vouchers inside.

A total of 3,000 packets will be given out on these three days, with one lucky visitor walking away with a surprise FAMFun package voucher worth RM368 every day.

There are also exciting rewards to be had, including round-trip flight tickets to Medan, and Sunway Lagoon ticket discount vouchers.

At the PinkFong Baby Shark Bash, children can have their photo taken with Baby Shark cut-out characters. Also, for every purchase of a Baby Shark Combo Meal or PinkFong Baby Shark ice cream, receive a pair of Kool shades for free.

Everyone’s favourite Nickelodeon characters such as SpongeBob SquarePants, Patrick Star, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Dora the Explorer and Boots will be putting in an appearance.

Head on to the Raya Bazaar at the Surf Beach from noon till 4pm during the 10-day celebration to indulge in raya delicacies such as lemang and ketupat, as well as partake in a series of fun games and activities such as giant jenga, anyam ketupat, 4D Twister, henna mehndi, and the Tornado Blast Challenge.

“The festive season is all about spending quality time with loved ones, and this is our way of inviting our guests to a whole new celebration of Hari Raya!” said Sunway Lagoon general manager Sean Choo.

Visitors can also enjoy 40% off published admission rates when they purchase tickets with Maybank QR Pay. They can also buy special holiday school packages of FAMFun (two adult and two children) online at RM368 or the 4-to-Go (for four adults) at RM432.

Sumertime fun

Meanwhile, the Lost World of Tambun (LWOT) in Ipoh is having its Summer Raya campaign, from now till July 8, with live performances such as The Summer Raya Show, and Joget Lambak Raya, plus a Raya Art N Craft activity.

LWOT general manager Nurul Nuzairi Mohd Azahari said: “Raya is an occasion not to be missed in Malaysia. It is the best time for people to gather and celebrate the festive season with good food and relaxation in the familiar comforts of their kampung.

“Lost World of Tambun allows visitors to soak in the wonder of towering limestone cliffs, preserved caves, tropical environment, flora and fauna, and our family attractions.”

So don’t miss the special #OOTD Raya starting tomorrow till June 24, happening at the Malayana Village, at 1.30pm. Besides gaining an insight into the Malayana Tribe, visitors can catch its warriors in action during the Humalaya Malayana (Malayana story) performance.

Don’t be shy, as the tribe members welcome you to get up close for a Wefie with Cool Tribe, or participate in the Malayana Games. Then stay on for the tribe’s mesmerising Flaming Percussions performance during the Hot Springs & Night Park Stage show, happening at 9pm.

Visitors can also relax with a dip in the natural hot springs and spa, or learn more about the over 55 different species of birds, mammals, and reptiles at the Lost World Petting Zoo.

When hunger pangs hit, head on over to Dulang Tea House for classic mouthwatering Raya delights such as ketupat, lemang, rendang tok, and satay. Or bite into a slice of Pizza Raya – satay pizza and rendang pizza – that marries traditional flavours with a favourite dish.

Visitors who purchase LWOT tickets through Maybank QRPay from now till June 24 are eligible for a 40% discount from published admission rates.

Purchase three adult tickets online (valid until July 7) from now until June 30, and get the next two tickets free when you display the e-store voucher at the entrance.
