Magic S Event organised a New Year’s Eve party called “2018 Magic Countdown” at Lost World of Tambun, Ipoh. The show, held on December 31, lasted from 7pm till 1am the following morning.
While annual pass holders had free admission, others were required to purchase a RM40 food voucher in order to get two free tickets. With such an offer over 20,000 people from all walks of life chose Lost World as their countdown destination. Families, friends, lovers, all came to enjoy the water activities and rides available at the theme park.
Among the activities were an all-night house DJ music, amusement rides, hot springs, petting zoo, neon face painting, water gun and balloon fights, fire show by the Flaming Percussion and the not-to-be-missed fireworks display.
“I celebrated the last day of 2016 here but this year it’s something else. I’ve never seen Lost World this packed before. Revellers parked their cars along the road and walked in the drizzle. Some shared umbrellas with strangers, as they walked. It’s a refreshing sight, as it helps promote unity,” said student Chan Wei Lun.
When the clock struck midnight, a breathtaking display of fireworks lit the sky. The display, lasting about three minutes, left everyone in awe. It was definitely a magical welcome to the New Year.
“Without a doubt, the highlight of the night was the fireworks. It’s simply captivating as if I was witnessing a colourful painting in the sky. I’ve never seen something so beautiful,” exclaimed Jamie, another excited visitor.
The exhilarating moment was indeed a magical way to say adieu to 2017 and to welcome 2018.
