Where to buy tickets
With instant confirmation, booking your Sunway Lagoon ticket is straightforward and hassle-free. Besides that, you get to enjoy some amazing Tripcarte savings with great discounts, and the best part YOU GET TO SKIP THE QUEUE!
Even if you only have a day, you can still visit all the 6 parks in Sunway Lagoon. What we like to do is to start out at the dry parks and then spend the rest of the day at the water parks.
The best would be to arrive early – before the opening time – and once you get in, go for the rides and attractions in the Amusement Park and Scream Park. Next, head over to the Suspension Bridge to get to the other side, and continue your fun at the rest of the 4 parks.
1. Amusement Park
If you’re not keen on the water park, Sunway Lagoon’s amusement park holds just as much excitement for its patrons. There are the absolute heart-stopping rides – Pirate’s Revenge and Tomahawk – both of which spin 360°!
For the faint-hearted, there are other subdued (but still fun) rides like Grand Canyon River Rapids, Butch Cassidy Trail, Vultures, and more.
Besides that, there’s also the Suspension Bridge that is one of the world’s longest suspended pedestrian bridge. No kidding! It offers visitors an incredible overview scene of the park and the Surf Beach below, which is pretty incredible!
So, you don’t need to be afraid of missing out even if you aren’t splashing about in the water parks.
2. Scream Park
If you think water parks are only for kids, you clearly haven’t been to Sunway Lagoon! With the world’s highest, largest and most thrilling water ride, the Vuvuzela, you’ll be twisting and turning your way into a dizzying high.
4. Nickelodeon Lost Lagoon
Opened in February 2016, Nickelodeon Lost Lagoon is the latest addition to Sunway Lagoon with over 12 rides and attractions. It’s also Asia’s first Nickelodeon Themed Land and at 4pm daily, you can get slimed at SpongeBob Splash Adventure!
5. Wildlife Park
Say hello to over 150 species of animals from the world at Sunway Lagoon’s Wildlife Park. You can even get up close and personal with them at the petting zoo! You can also hold a baby sun bear near its enclosure if you happen to catch it during its playtime by chance.
6. Extreme Park
Adrenaline junkies and thrill seekers will be glad to find these hair-raising and gripping activities in the park. From Malaysia’s longest flying fox, to bungee jump, ATV rides, Asia’s highest slingshot ride and more, you’ll be sure to get your dose of thrills here.
1. The Lagoon Express
Bags and personal belongings aren’t allowed on majority of the rides and attractions within the park. You can keep your things in the locker if you don’t have someone watching your things.
One-time use lockers and Multiple Time Usage lockers at various locations throughout the park. The Multiple Time Usage lockers come in 2 sizes. The small locker is able to fit 2 average-sized backpacks and 2 pairs of shoes, while the large one is able to fit a big luggage or several backpacks and shoes.
There are tubes up for rental in Sunway Lagoon, mainly for use on the Lazy River or Wave Pool. The water slides and rides come with their own tubes, so renting one isn’t necessary if you have no need for it.
If you do choose to rent a tube, do keep in mind that you will have to carry it with you for the day. You won’t be able to get your deposit back if you lose or misplace your tubes.
Upon entry, each person will have their own wristband with a barcode. If you’re worried about carrying your wallet or money around the thrill rides and water slides, you can choose to deposit cash into your wristband instead.
Depositing cash into your wristband is relatively simple. You can do so at the ticketing counters or lockers counters and e-load counters. These locations are easily accessible in the park.
The minimum amount to deposit into your wristband is RM50. Our advice is to deposit more than you think you need. You don’t want to go through the hassle of having not enough to pay and returning to the locker to get your cash for payment or top up.
Don’t worry about depositing too much into your wristband as you can get a refund for the balance. Cash refund is available before 7pm on the day of use and make sure to keep your receipts for validation. If you lost or damaged your wristband, however, you won’t be able to receive a refund.
What to bring to Sunway Lagoon
You’ll be in the sun a lot so make sure you bring along your sunblock in the event you need to re-apply, which is very likely, especially after hours of sweating and being in the water. The Malaysian sun can be quite unforgiving, so it’s a definite must to lessen the sunburn.
There are no towels provided in Sunway Lagoon unless you purchase them from the souvenir shops. So, remember to pack yours together with the necessary toiletries. There are shower rooms in Sunway Lagoon so you can clean up before leaving.
If you want to carry your phone with you throughout the day, bring along a waterproof phone pouch that you can easily hang around your neck.
What to wear to Sunway lagoon
Since it’s a family-friendly park, it’s best to dress modestly, mainly for comfort and convenience. Although there are no restrictions against bikinis and speedos, you might stand out from other patrons and get the few odd stares here and there.
Stick to a swimsuit you’re comfortable with and if you’re visiting the dry amusement park before or after the water park, you can simply throw on a T-shirt and boardshorts over your swimsuit. Malaysia is hot and humid all year round, so it’s best to stick with thin, breathable clothes.
As for footwear, slippers and sandals are the most convenient. You’ll be required to remove your footwear before going on the water slides and they’re usually kept at a general area
As long as you follow these simple Sunway Lagoon park rules, figuring out what to wear shouldn’t be difficult!
What to eat in Sunway Lagoon
No outside food are allowed inside the park aside from those for infants or special medical needs. Visitors, however, are allowed to bring in 1 bottle of plain water. Any other flavoured or types of drinks are not allowed.

There are also restaurants in Sunway Lagoon, serving a wide variety of food from local cuisine, to fast food and more.
