On the 2 of February 2016 (which also happened to be my Birthday), Sunway Lagoon threw a big media launch at the Explorers Trail which saw media and guests alike passing through pineapple columns and intricate carvings as we climbed 'ancient temple steps' to the launch venue, in the heart of Nickelodeon Lost Lagoon.

The launch was graced by guest of honour, Selagor Chief Minister YAB Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Bin Ali; Sunway Group Founder & Chairman, Tan Sri Dr. Jeffrey Cheah; Tan Sri Datuk Seri Raman M. Hashim, Sunway Group Deputy Chairman and Mark Whitehead, Executive Vice President & Managing Director, VIMN Asia.

It was definitely a proud moment for Sunway Group as this addition adds another top notch choice to Sunway Lagoon's 5 existing parks , which include it's famed Water Park, Amusement Park, Extreme Park, Interactive Wildlife Park and Lynton V Harris Scream Park.
YAB Dato' Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali, in his speech said " This park is a fantastic addition to Sunway Lagoon and one that will greatly boost the appeal of Selangor as a tourist destination". On a lighter note, he added that "My kids were so excited that I was going to see Spongebob and Patrick Star", acknowledging the fact that Nickelodeon characters have Rockstar status among kids (and some of us who grew up watching them).
|The official launch was closed with a daytime firework display and the eruption of the Sunway Lagoon Volcano|
During the launch we also got to witness the not to be missed Daily Signature Slime Event that happens at the magnificent SpongeBob SquarePants structure and observe fully grown men & women go gaga over the Nickelodeon Characters.

The opening of this new park sees an additional 14 attractions suitable for a variety of ages. One can expect an exhilarating experience thanks to interactive play areas which use the latest in reactive technology, a variety of waterslides, retail shops, games & a myriad of food establishments.

The Rides (some of them)
|Take the Monsoon 360 Challenge if you dare!|
Experience the KUBARANGO where you will be unleashed into a steep drop before it takes you up on a near vertical experience for a moment of weightlessness and backwards into a reversed free-fall before returning you with a splash.
|Plash and splash about to the sounds of tribal drums|
The HIPPO VALLEY is where all rivers flow into a busy waterway where tribes meet to catch a drink and laze until sunset. Watch Hippos swim on the banks and monkeys swinging from trees to trees. Catch the ‘Whopping Splash’ coming your way while you enjoy the serenity of the rainforest. You will hear tribal drums and tribal warriors calling for celebration!

You CAN'T smoke anywhere you like! But, Sunway Lagoon is very considerate to have many designated Smoking spots.
- There was a lingering smell of feet all over the park and in the showers. I don't think it's my feet. I mean, I don't have smelly feet, like I can vouch for it!
- I actually didn't see any baby rooms.
- Make sure you are over 110cm if you are planning to get on rides :P
