Exploring Selangor: THEME PARKS AND RECREATIONAL RESORTS
|More than any other state, Selangor has developed international quality amusement parks. While these attractions may not suit the tastes of some visitors, they are exemplary of the modern development of this prosperous state.|
Mimaland, a recreational resort situated 18 km north-east of Kuala Lumpur, sprawls over twelve hectares of Gombak's hilly grounds, lakes and mountain streams. Visitors can fish and boat, trek in the surrounding jungle, or swim in the largest pool in Southeast Asia. Accommodation is available in either chalets or stilt houses on the resort's lake. Mimaland is open from 8.00am to 12 pm daily. Admission is RM2 for adults and RM1 for children.
Sunway Lagoon opens daily from 12 noon-l0pm (Mon-Fri) and 10am-10pm on weekends and holidays. Admission: RM 15 (adults)/RM 10 (children)
|The Mines Wonderlands
Located at Sungei Besi, the Mines is a modern recreational park built on the site of what was once the world's largest open-cast tin-mining lake. Its attractions are both natural and man-made, and the man-made wonders in particular are more than a little remarkable. The most famous of these is the Musical Fountain, which emits enormous multicolored sprawls of water carefully coordinated to harmonize with accompanying music. Across the lake, a parade of giant animated animals, including a dolphin, an octopus, a sea turtle, a crocodile, a carp and a swan, glide across the lake at 8.45 pm and 10.15 pm daily. Perhaps the most sublime of the Wonderlands' marvels, however, is a Snow House, where visitors can enjoy a brief immersion in winter. The Mines Wonderlands also offers watersports, a roller coaster, and a picnic beach. The park is open from 11 am to 11 pm daily. Admission is RM6 for adults (Weekend -RM 10) and RM3 for children (Weekend-RM5). Admission to the Snow House is RM8 (unlimited time).
