A Splashing Good Time at Sunway Lagoon's AQUA RUN 2

Last month which is on the 22nd of April, I participated in the second installment of AQUA RUN organized by Sunway Lagoon. It's a water themed ‘fun run’ featuring 12 fun zones spanning approximately 3.5km and there's no one who completed the run without getting wet!

Aimed at getting the public to go outdoor and spend time together with family and friends which was in line with Sunway Lagoon’s objective as a one-stop fun destination for guests to have the ‘Best Day Ever’. So was it really the 'Best Day Ever'? I'll tell you the answer at the very end of this post.

Before the flag off, we warmed up our body with the zumba session which lasted for about 20 minutes. After that we head to the starting point and for the first zone, we climbed the Avalanche Peak and we were drenched by splashes of water at the Splash Attack that got us ready for what’s to come! 

We had to navigate through the specially-designed fun zones with its unique spills and surprises at the Puddles Mattress, Daredevil Splash Mountains, Kiddie Pool Arena, Rain Shower, Wet Blocks, Zambezi River Adventure, Water Boogie Disco and Commando Flood Tunnel. Besides that, the Photo-Op Challenge tested participants’ ability to take their best shots amidst splashing water.

As we navigate through the zones, we get to roam through the Malaysia’s Largest Man-Made Surf Beach, Asia’s 1st Nickelodeon-themed land, Nickelodeon Lost Lagoon, among others. We get to enjoy ourselves at the Music Party finale before spending the rest of the day at the park. I will blog about that in a separate blog post as I participated in the Wildlife Park tour.

“With over 90 rides across 80 acres of space, Sunway Lagoon continues to offer a wonderful place for family and friends to get together and have fun.  From the success and overwhelming response of last year’s inaugural Aqua Run, we have decided to have this year’s edition on a larger scale and greater than before! We are really happy that each campaign attracts a tremendous turnout as it proves that we are heading in the right direction to appeal to the public. We uphold our promise to continuously provide new experiences for each guest that comes to our park,” commented Sean Choo, General Manager of Sunway Lagoon. 

Mobile phones were tucked away safely with Sunway Lagoon’s waterproof pouch which was provided to all the participants to snap photos as memories with the #SunwayLagoonMY and #SLAquaRun2 hashtags. 

Finally gotten my AQUA RUN 2 medal at the end of the run.
The event would not have been a success with the support from sponsors, Titan Scuba Asia – Let's Scuba Dive Be Your Lifestyle, Yogood Glow Bar – Cereal Bars With Collagen and Ballop Malaysia – trendy, functional and ultralight-weight skin shoes excellent for water, fitness and outdoor activities.

Finally time to tell if it's the 'Best Day Ever?' I personally enjoyed the run although I did not run at all since most of us were on our bare foot and the floor was wet and slippery. Some of the zones were quite fun, there's a few zone which were quite challenging especially if the participants has a large body size but some zones should be improved and I'll tell you why. I did not notice that I have passed through some of the zones at all until I refer back to the route map. The line for the first few zones were superbly long too. I waited almost 30 minutes at the Daredevil Splash Mountain. All in all, it's great for family and friends to do something together over the weekend. The fun continues as all the participants are allowed enjoy the rides in the theme park.

  1. Nice medal! Luckily it's AQUA in English, not Hokkien! Muahahahaha!!!!

  2. @suituapui: I know what you mean. Hehe...

  3. People who works there are some of the sweetest people I've met. Save yourself some time and just go there. Everyone at venues in NYC is sweet and ask how you've been, even though normally staff keep their heads down.

    1. Thanks for the comment although it's quite irrelevant to this post... lol

  4. Events on the sea Thanks for the blog loaded with so many information. Stopping by your blog helped me to get what I was looking for.
