Spoke to a friend who is working in Lost World of Tambun today. Whilst it is not hard to figure out that a theme park like Lost World is a lot quieter on off peak days like school days, I was shocked when my friend told me that on a busy day there can be 12,000 visitors visiting Lost World in a day! Yes, twelve thousand! Initially I thought I heard it wrong. But nope, she then gave out further figures on their not so busy weekends that they can still draw in five to six thousand visitors. On school days (weekdays) the number of visitors is a lot smaller, in the hundreds. The variance is SO huge!
So they open from 10am to 11pm. This means that on average there’ll be like a thousand visitors clocking in every hour on a busy day. Most probably quite a lot more at a certain time like in the morning when everyone wants to come in early for a day of fun!
Mind boggling stuff. I haven’t been to Lost World before. I guess when I do decide to go there, I’ll most certainly want to avoid their peak days! Now I understand the business case for letting out properties as homestay near Lost World.
