THE LOST WORLD OF TAMBUN

This theme park is almost similar to a lost world indeed, surrounded by exquisitely breathtaking natural landscapes and limestone outcrops as backdrop, reminding travellers of some lost ancient Mesoamerican city in the middle of lush greenery.  The Lost World of Tambun is an action packed, exciting adventure with the most thrilling rides and attractions, located close to Ipoh. It consists of Water Park, Amusement Park, Lost World Hot Springs, the Tiger Valley, Lost World Petting Zoo and Lost World Tin Valley.

Travellers can simply choose to enjoy relaxing and soaking under the hot sun, or play volleyball at the man-made beach. For thrill seeking adults, rides such as the Cliff Racer or the StormRider (a pirate ship that swings 180 degrees) give an adrenaline rush. Besides that, visitors can also get up close and personal with wildlife at the Petting Zoo that allows public to feed, feel, touch and play with animals like Ruby the Raccoon, Nia the Python and Wira the Green Macaw. The Lost World of Tambun is perfect all in one family-oriented destination.

Lost World of Tambun generously hosted the C1MTA delegates’ dinner and accommodation, and even surprised the delegates with their in-house resident musical performers. The delegates also had the chance to immerse themselves in the waters in the Lost World Hot Springs, which is 100% natural mineral hot spring water that is pure and fresh that flows through the pool continuously from the main source and then channelled to the nearby Kopisan River. Containing healthy minerals such as Calcium Carbonate, Sodium, Calcium, Potassium, Magnesium, Sulphate, Chloride and Iron, the Hot Springs attract visitors seeking medicinal and recuperative getaway.

The tin mining industry is one of the oldest industries in Malaya (the former name of Malaysia before 1963) and it spurred commerce in the Kinta Valley. The Lost World Tin Valley gives tribute to this industry and aims to educate today’s generation on Ipoh’s rich tin mining heritage. The Tin Valley area is equipped with a life-sized palung (sluice box), an original gravel pump monitor and a large area for young visitors to experience Tin Ore Panning, which is the traditional way of extracting tin manually. The history of tin mining and real artefacts from the past can all be seen in the Tin Valley’s Galleria.

For Eco-Adventure enthusiasts, they can experience Malaysia’s first and highest Para-Jump from a height of 65 feet. Another adventurous offering is the 6th Mile Tunnel, where travellers need to traverse a long tunnel in pitch black with mud that goes up to the knees, waters that needed to be swam through and encountering creatures that lurk in the dark.

For those who intend to stay within the theme park, The Lost World Hotel Ipoh offers such accommodation. Business minded guests travelling to Perak will be pleased to know that the hotel is equipped with a Business Centre and Wi-Fi. Its 174 rooms are as good as any other reliable 3-star hotels in Ipoh and come with basic amenities, flat screen television with cable channels air conditioning unit.

  • The Lost World Of Tambun is actually the sister of Malaysia’s famous theme park, The Sunway Lagoon, which has been receiving many accolades, awards and international recognition.
  • The beach and the river may be man-made, but the landscapes are all natural. The owner did not want to tarnish the greenery of this glorious environment, which are millions years of old and remain pristine.
