Why join the balik kampung rush, when you and your family can have a splashing fun time at Sunway Lagoon this festive holiday

CAST the thought of traffic jams far away and create splashing fun memories instead this Chinese New Year with Sunway Lagoon’s Best Reunion Ever this Feb 1 to 19.

From lion dances to the 12 Majestic Drums show, and even meet-and-greet sessions with the God of Prosperity, Captain Quack and Lady Quack, the city’s go-to theme park will be awash with festive lunar new year spirit.

At the recent launch of the campaign, Sunway Lagoon general manager Sean Choo said the theme park “aspires to [appeal] to families and millennials” as the new year approaches.

He added: “The Best Reunion Ever celebrates togetherness, [and] promotes fun experiences to create best-day-ever memories for our guests.

“During the coming long holidays, we invite families, friends, and everyone to skip the jam, and join us for fun-filled experiences.”

Among the highlights is the special Hip Hop Lion Dance Performance by the Kuala Lumpur branch of the iconic Kun Seng Keng Dragon and Lion Dance Association, happening daily from Feb 5 to Feb 8.

Guests can also expect an auspicious welcome dance called Prosperity for All, Chinese New Year sand art workshops, and Hua Ren Heritage Chinese New Year dance performances while enjoying many of the theme park’s myriad attractions.

Nickelodeon’s SpongeBob and Patrick will be sporting Chinese New Year themes, and will be offering photo opportunities at the Nickelodeon Lost Lagoon, alongside Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT), and Dora the Explorer plus her best friend, Boots!

Don’t miss Sunway Lagoon original production, The Tale of Mount Berapi & Waves of Fun, and the Swashbuckling Pirates show, while getting a dose of nostalgia with Bring on the 60s Show.
