half drive from Penang. It opens from 12:00 noon until 7 p.m. on weekdays. On

Besides the special rides such
as Tube Raiders (sliding down with large tubes), Cliff Racer (top speed mine
carts) and Jungle Wave Bay (the huge wave pool with nine different waves), the
park also has a Tiger Valley with three adult tigers on an island resembling
their natural habitat the first of its kind in Malaysia.
It's the home to Siberian tigers, Sultan
and Jessie, Jessies year-old Siberian-Bengal male cubs, Lovie and Rock, female
Siberian-Bengal tiger Raima and her three cubs, Azian, Aqila and Putra, which
have only recently opened their eyes.
attraction is the pool filled with hot mineral water from the Tambun hot springs,
which is renowned locally for
its therapeutic properties. Those who prefer less strenuous activities can be
set adrift on the Adventure River encircling the theme park, as the ride gives a
leisurely view of the whole area.
Behind the breathtaking facade of the Lost World, one gets the feeling of
wandering into a lost civilisation, not unlike those featured in the Indiana
Jones and Raider of the Lost Arc movies.
You can start the adventure at Adventure River and get transported on a
long river ride, with giant waves providing the thrills. It's running
600m around the theme park, the river passes through ruins with special
effects like smoke, light, the sounds of monkeys, elephants and insects,
and water sprays. The brave-hearted can check out the Cliff Racer
twin speed coaster slides using tubes. The Explora Bay kids zone has smaller slides and fountains.
A favourite with both kids and adults in this zone is the tipping
bucket, which overturns when it is filled to the brim, splashing water
onto everyone beneath.
There is also the Jungle Wave Pool with seven wave patterns that can rise up
to one metre high.
Beyond the wave pool, the adventure continues with the Tube Raiders which
comprises four different tube slides measuring between 113m and 115m that end at
the edge of a pool.
The most interesting and thrilling slide is the one wherein the adventurer is
engulfed in complete darkness when passing through it.
After a long day of fun and adventure, visitors can relax or rejuvenate
themselves by soaking in a bathing pool which is fed with 100% natural spring
water from the famous Tambun hot springs nearby.
Entrance to the Lost World of Tambun is RM21 per adult and RM16 per child.
