A tidal wave took over Sunway Lagoon as it brought more than 800 runners to the second installment of AQUA RUN – a water themed ‘fun run’ featuring 12 fun zones spanning approximately 3.5km.
The fun run is aimed at getting the public outdoors and spend time together with family and friends, in line with Sunway Lagoon’s objective as a one-stop fun destination for guests to have the ‘Best Day Ever’.
To kick off the morning, participants climbed the Avalanche Peak and were drenched by splashes of water at the Splash Attack that got them ready for what’s to come! Guests 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.
It was a splendid day filled with thrills and excitement as runners got to roam through the theme park to see its iconic attractions such as Malaysia’s Largest Man-Made Surf Beach, Asia’s 1st Nickelodeon-themed land, Nickelodeon Lost Lagoon, among others. Runners enjoyed themselves at the Music Party finale before spending the rest of the day at the park.
“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 guests to snap photos as memories with the #SunwayLagoonMY and #SLAquaRun2 hashtags. 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.
