‘Aqua Blasters’ and auto-dosing systems are some of the newly implemented steps taken
Malaysians can celebrate another milestone after it was announced that water-based theme parks can once again resume operations. This proves to be a step forward in efforts to gradually reopen the economy under the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO).
Us when the theme parks finally reopen…
Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob emphasized that all theme parks must follow and implement stringent SOPs and social distancing measures to reduce the threat of another COVID-19 wave. Moreover, theme parks are also required to limit the number of admissions depending on its respective size and capacity.
There are probably tons of question tossing in your mind about the safety of theme parks. Rightly so, too. Even with the reduced number of cases, we shouldn’t take things for granted. So it’s good that you’re concern!
On the other hand, if you are looking for some assurance about the safety measurements in Sunway Lagoon or Sunway Lost World of Tambun, read on. We’ll describe what precautions and procedures both theme parks are taking in order to ensure visitors are protected.
As a grand reopening, Sunway Lagoon is having an opening promo for all visits between 4th July and 13th July 2020! Admission tickets with access to ALL SIX ZONES are being sold at RM115 for adults and RM105 for children.
Sunway Lagoon have installed disinfectant chambers – funkily named ‘Aqua Blasters’ – which visitors can walk through before entering.
The blasters uses approximately 1-3 parts per million (ppm) chlorine dilution, similar to the amount in pool water. So if you’ve been in any chlorinated swimming pool and have no issues so far, chances are you won’t have any troubles here too.
Along with that, routine temperature screening at entrances will follow.
You can also expect to see social distancing markers at ticketing and attraction queues, as well as at any live shows or performances.
Sunway Theme Parks Executive Director Calvin Ho said in this video by The Edge Markets that he’s confident about both Sunway Lagoon and Lost World’s health measurements. He assures that all pools will be controlled and chlorinated via an auto-dosing system. Constant wipe-downs will also be conducted extensively throughout the parks, including merchandise stores, eateries, vehicles, and attraction rides.
Even then, Sunway Lagoon only plans to reopen at only one third capacity as it is easier to abide by social distancing measures. Although face masks are not required on water rides, it is advisable to have them on when roaming other areas of the theme park.
In addition to the interview, Sunway Lagoon has released a set of COVID-19 preventive measures which visitors must comply with. Some measurements to take note of is their cashless payment option, the compulsory applying of hand sanitizers upon entering and exiting rides, and the guests declaration form.

Sunway Lost World is pushing the message of ‘Play & Stay with Confidence’, referring to both their theme park and hotel.
Usual social distancing measures and compulsory face masks applies.
Similarly to Sunway Lagoon, a disinfectant chamber – now named Malayana Healing Hut – will be stationed at entrances for visitors to cleanse before entering. Temperature screenings will be conducted, and only visitors below 37.5°C will be permitted.
Again, guests will have the option of cashless payment if they wish to reduce contact frequency. Constant sanitization will be conducted in touch prone areas, and sanitizer and handwash stations will be placed in several places across the theme park.
For Lost World Hotel: the same guidelines pertaining disinfecting, temperature scanning, and contactless payment are maintained.

Keep in mind!
For those of you who’ll be rushing back to the theme parks, please be responsible and heed all SOPs. Listen to the park attendants and don’t overreact if you are prohibited to do anything outside the guidelines. In other words, don’t be sampah masyarakat la, kay? The last thing we want is to be locked in again.
