Lost World of Tambun (LWOT) theme park will reopen to the public this Saturday, June 13. Prices for special entrance tickets start from RM32.
Their general manager, Nurul Nuzairi Mohd Azahari stated that the decision to reopen LWOT follows the management’s satisfaction towards sanitising works reinforced with standard operating procedures (SOP) imposed by the National Security Council and Ministry of Health.
“We take and tighten existing SOP seriously in preventing the spread of COVID-19,” he said in a media session after the Strategic Cooperation and COVID-19 Disinfection SOP Training programme on June 11.
“We’ll also ensure that visitors are in healthy and safe conditions, besides their adherence to SOP as long as they are in the vicinity of LWOT,” Nurul Nuzairi stressed.
“Only the zoo section, which are Petting Zoo, Giraffe and Friends, Tiger Valley, Hippo Kingdom, Catopia, Tarantula Alley, Wetland and Bird Paradise are reopened for visitors,” he added. “Animal exhibition goes on as usual but with priority towards social distancing measures.
“Throughout the period of the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO), only 8,000 visitors are allowed at a time, equivalent to about 25 percent of the actual allowed persons, which are 38,000 that covers the 40-acre wide land of LWOT,” Nurul Nuzairi explained.
Meanwhile, he expressed gratitude to Tourism Perak via the state government for organising a guideline training programme with the Perak Fire and Rescue Department.
“This programme was beneficial to all staff of LWOT in refining SOP which should be done during this new norm,” he expressed. “We now know better about proper sanitising works as outlined by the fire department, which deepens our knowledge and also increases confidence of visitors to LWOT.”
