THE last “queen” of Egypt and daredevil performances are bound to provide both young and old a thrilling experience at Sunway Lagoon in Petaling Jaya, Selangor.
A collaboration with The Sudden Impact! Entertainment Company, “Cleopatra – Myths.Mystery.Mummies” is the theme park’s very first edutainment attraction that combines entertainment and historical education for audiences of all ages.
The theme park had previously worked with the New York-based company on Scream Park.
“This year, we want to step out of our ‘scary’ zone and further entertain guests of all ages with an educational family-friendly walk-through experience,” said The Sudden Impact! Entertainment Company chairman Lynton V. Harris.
The new attraction features six interactive scenarios which include a theatre, 3D light art, falling beams walkway, mummy embalming and a glamorous throne display. Visitors will also be acquainted with the various “incarnations” of the famed “queen” in pop culture throughout the years.
Another new attraction is the Hi-Dive, a show that revolves around professional divers plunging from heights as high as 24m. The divers’ stint at Sunway Lagoon follows the troupe’s successful performances in other countries such as China, Japan and Hong Kong.
The daredevil show will run at the theme park until Aug 3.
Located at the Wild Wild West area, the Cleopatra attraction will open daily from 11am to 6pm. As for the Hi-Dive show, it will be staged at the Surf Beach area on weekdays at 1.30pm and 3pm while the three sessions on weekends are at 1.30pm, 3pm and 5pm. – By Chester Chin
