Mines Wonderland, A Delightful Theme Park That Will Please Any Visitor

  • i

Mines Wonderland Theme Park is a highly popular amusement park located a half hour’s drive away from Kuala Lumpur. With a multitude of attractions available for the traveler, there is something to suit everyone’s fancy at Mines Wonderland. Night time is the ideal time to visit the park as that is when it is particularly attractive.

The water taxi takes passengers on a ride along the 150 acre lake, which was formerly the biggest open cast tin mine on the planet. The buildings in the environs of the lake look imposing framed against the night sky, and the giant illuminated animal sculptures, including the dolphin, dinosaur, swan and chicks, take on a magical aura.

The rides available at the park will delight both children and adults. The Unity Train ride takes passengers on a circuit of the park, offering the opportunity to observe the different animals housed in the park and the well-maintained gardens. The Road Tram is an antique-style train that takes riders to the opposite side of the park. Meanwhile the Vintage Car permits the visitor to tour the garden and lake in grand style.

The unique 10,000 sq ft Ice Factory maintains a temperature of up to 15 degrees celsius below zero, and displays engrossing ice sculptures of various animals and fish. Visitors may borrow a winter jacket at the entrance to the attraction.

The Secrets of the Tiger exhibit allows visitors to view the majestic Bengal tiger at close range, including the rare white tiger, as they wander freely in their enclosure. Other creatures to be seen include the swan, peacock, macaw and goats.

Make it a point to visit the Amphitheatre where you may see the sensational Musical Fountain where the water seems to dance in the air to the rhythm of the music with the bright lighting adding to the charm. The native dance of Sabah in East Malaysia is also featured. An aqua laser show ends the display.
