The highlight of the day is the Mines Musical Fountain that dances in tandem with the music and lights at the background.

Water Taxi

Remember to hop on the water taxi and cruise along the 150 acre lake that used to be the largest open cast tin mine in the world. You will enjoy the cool breeze of the night as you sit and enjoy the scenery of the buildings in the vicinity of the lake. As you cruise along the lake, you will be able to see the giant animal sculptures with lights that lights up. The giant animals include the dinosaur, the swam, the dolphin and the chicks.

Train Ride, Road Tram and Vintage Car

Your children will enjoy the rides that are available at regular interval in this park. Try the Unity Train ride that takes you around the park. You will be able to see the garden and the animals that are kept here. The Road Tram ride is a choo-choo train that moves on the road that will enable you to see the other side of the park. Go back to the automotive age by going on the Vintage Car that takes you around a lake and a beautifully landscaped garden.

Ice Factory

Experience extreme cold temperature in tropical Malaysia. With a temperature of between -10 °C to -15 °C, this 10,000 square feet Ice Factory is the first winter wonderland in Malaysia. See the many ice sculptures of animals, fish, chairs and other interesting models here. Remember to wear your winter jacket that is available at the entrance to this place. You will probably spend about 15 minutes at most in this place due to the cold temperature here.
