It also goes without saying that Sunway Lagoon is more crowded, and visitors may find themselves waiting for long periods for their turn.

Sunway Lagoon vs SplashMania: SplashMania queue

As for SplashMania, they still need to improve their queue management because sometimes there will be some annoying people (I wish their french fries are always soggy) who will cross to the next lane for another slide just because they changed their mind at the last minute. This becomes more of an issue when they cross over and cut the queue from a shorter lane to a long lane.


Ticket Prices and Packages
