More than 500 visitors were entertained with animals’ behaviour in the Petting Zoo at Lost World of Tambun (LWOT) which resumed operations yesterday on June 13.
The animals’ excitement could be attributed to the presence of visitors after three months of the park’s closure due to the Movement Control Order (MCO) in late March.
General manager, Nurul Nuzairi Mohd Azahari said that the public’s appearance has shown great discipline during their visit to LWOT.
“I’ve also witnessed their adherence to imposed standard operating procedures (SOP), especially those with families because they were very attentive to their respective family members’ well-being,” he commended.
“I foresee an increase in the amount of visitors, particularly on weekends, although they’re still wary about the possible spread of COVID-19,” Nurul Nuzairi stated. “Hopefully, we’ll be able to welcome 4,000 visitors per day later in July.
“Even though the pools and water activities are yet to open, visitors were nonetheless entertained with live performances from the Tiger and Friends show, crocodile and hippopotamus feeding, among many more,” he stated.
A total of 365 animals from 123 different registered species can be found in the 10-acre wide Petting Zoo, while LWOT as a whole is around 40-acre wide, with multiple attractions such as games, swimming pools and hot springs.
Special ticket offers start from RM32 for MyKad holders. LWOT now operates from 11am to 6pm daily.
