Sunway Lagoon is a theme park in Petaling Jaya
. It was officially opened by the former Prime Minister Tun Mahathir bin Mohamad on April 23, 1993. It features rides in both the water park and the adjacent amusement park, excluding Scream Park, Wildlife Park & Extreme Park. In late 2008, new parks were added and minor improvements were made to the existing park. The park is home to the World
's largest wave pool, measuring impressive 139,800 square feet (13,000 square meters), world’s largest man-made sandy surf beach,one of the world’s longest pedestrian suspension bridge, Asia
’s highest slingshot ride, Malaysia’s first interactive zoo and one of Asia’s longest flying fox trails.
Sunway Lagoon is home to one of the World’s Largest Man-Made Surf Beach, a title recognized by the Malaysia Book of Records. Stretching over 13,000 square meters, the Surf Beach is capable of churning out perfectly shaped waves up to the maximum height of eight-feet. The ability to condition the waves according to the needs of the surfers in terms of height, time and wave patterns make Surf Beach at Sunway Lagoon a surfer’s paradise for both professional and aspiring surfers.
Having undergone a major facelift in April 2006, the old tiled landscape of the surf pool was transformed with the placement of 6,000 tons of sand, few-dozen palm trees and several huts and islands in the area, creating a tropical beach oasis in the middle of the city. City dwellers no longer need to travel tormenting long distances to have a fulfilling seaside experience.Complementing the scenery is the sight and sound of Asia’s Biggest Man-Made Erupting Volcano. This 75-feet high volcano sits majestically in the middle of the Surf Beach and threatens to erupt with fumes, smoke and fire every few minutes.
'Wildlife Park' at Sunway Lagoon is an interactive and educational zoo featuring exotic, small and friendly animals from a range of birds, reptiles and mammals.
