Following from the eventful morning, Sunway Lagoon had also announced the winner to its “Name the King and Queen of the Jungle @ Sunway Lagoon” contest which was held last year. Jonny Wong Kwei Ji, aged 36, who has named the theme park’s new pair of white lions Zola (male) and Zuri (female), which simply meant love and beautiful – both of which a royalty should have, won himself a brand new Samsung Galaxy Note 4 home.
Adding on to the excitement, Sunway Lagoon also re-launched its Wildlife Park with Puan Noorul Ashikin Binti Mohd Din, General Manager of Tourism Selangor, who graced the event. The one-of-a-kind event is a walkathon combined treasure hunt which took place at its very own newly refurbished Wildlife Park. Each participant also received a certificate of participation and they are also granted to an all-day access to the theme park for the rest of the day.
Sunway Lagoon’s Wildlife Park is Malaysia’s first fully interactive as well as educational park which is home to more than 150 species of exotic animals with more than 80 species-specific exhibits of exotic, small and friendly animals, a diverse range of birds, fishes, reptiles and mammals.
