IPOH, 26 January 2018 – In conjunction with the Chinese New Year festivities, Lost World Of Tambun (LWOT) has launched its latest attraction, ‘Luminous Forest’ – an enchanting landmark transformed into an extraordinary luminous landscape where trees come to life and creatures of the night come out to play in the soft glow of the night, evoking a childlike sense of joy and wonder in those who explore it.
Marvel at the intricate details of the mythical gardens and spellbinding woodlands at Luminous Forest set amidst nature. Begin the mystifying journey into Luminous Forest by stepping onto the Bridge of Luminosa that floats on the Swan Lake, which transports one from the normal realm into the magical forest.
Guests will discover Mother Sophea, a 400-year old willow-like tree that has a magical connection with all living creatures. The Malayana tribe believes that the tree spreads magical seeds to illuminate the forest and maintain a balance among the living creatures, while the Laka Falls carry a luminous substance that the Makalani uses to produce remarkable healing elixirs.
Be captivated by the phenomenal sight of the many magical live-in creatures with one of them being Shadowfang, a 16-feet long centipede that protects the forest with its vigilant eyes. At the Garden of Light, one will find flowers in peculiar shapes and sizes that glimmer in the dark, pollen drifting in the air like pixie dust, exotic species of insects and animals lurking in the bioluminescent forest. Take a stroll further in this celestial land to see the Malayana Throne, where the Chief Kukuntalu resides and rules the land in a just and fair manner.
At the Wapi Springs, legend says that those who throw a stone in it will have their wishes come true. Not to forget the transcending tranquility of the Toadstool Field where the Malayana tribe believes that the glowing mushrooms has healing abilities to nurse the sick and wounded back to health.
Nurul Nuzairi Mohd Azahari, General Manager of Lost World Of Tambun said, “Luminous Forest was created to spark our guests’ imagination of what lies within this undiscovered otherworldly realm, drifting them into a whimsical excursion through a luminous journey in Lost World Of Tambun’s natural terrains. It will reveal pockets of illuminated magic, unusual species and other incredible sights. Expect an unforgettable and enthralling cruise into Luminous Forest as the night unfolds in astonishing ways.”
Nurul Nuzairi also mentioned, the investment above the 1.5 acres of land was almost RM1 million which a large sum of it was spent to preserve the natural formation of the existing forest including the trees and stone structures. The project took a year to be completed.
“I hope many people would take this opportunity to come to Lost World Of Tambun to celebrate the Chinese New Year festivities and experience our Luminous Forest, truly a world on its own in a beautiful luminous landscape – it is a moment of pause, wonder and play within a mystical environment,” said.
The main highlight of Luminous Forest uses the lighting and sound effect with a little help of animatronics. It also uses luminescent paints which are non-toxic, water-based material to produce a reflective effect to the forest.
Luminous Forest opens to public on 14th February 2018 at 7:30pm onwards and is the newest addition at Lost World Of Tambun’s Ultimate Night Park, adding to the existing Lost World Hot Springs & Spa By Night and Lost World Petting Zoo By Night attractions.
