The Mines Wonderland
15 February 2009
It has been a long while since my last visit, probably more than 10 years ago. My visit this time is just for fun and coincidentally on the Valentines Day mood with my dear. After many years, my curiosity has built up.
The entrance has moved to the amphitheater side, so we need to walk a distance to reach there.
Price for an adult is RM35 with senior citizen is RM25 and child is RM23. Kind of expensive and the park is not live up its expectation. No wonder not many visitors on the weekend. I thought something should be going wrong.
Nevertheless, you still seeing some beautiful landscape catered for Chinese New Year and Flora Festival that still going on.
What I notice at the first is roller coaster is no longer there. The winter house is no longer have snow however, the temperature is still maintain as before. It’s no longer called Snow House but Four Season Garden.
The current season is Spring. Winter is already over, so no snow.
Among all, I found that this small tower is the best!
From the entrance towards the park, I saw Coin Garden. This garden houses local coins and some foreign coins. Local coins from 1 cent until 1 ringgit. The coin is not small, almost as tall as an adult.
My most favorite RM1 gold coin which is no longer use in Malaysia.
One of the big foreign coin.
On the lakeside, there is Giant Dragon Sculpture. I find it new and interesting.
Does dragon tortoise represent anything? I don’t know.
At night, the light will shine those dragons. It become an antique look.
I stumble upon this unknown park which housing various animal statues such as bear, deer, elephant, pigeon and etc. It’s actually an abandon mini golf in landscaped park.
Mural that getting tear off. Originally very nice and real but spoil totally.
Nothing can beat this dirty water. Aiksss…FYI…I took a photo here a decade ago. Up-to-date, it wasn’t even one change!
The Secrets of Tiger is just an exhibition with lots of picture and fact articles.
A giant tiger statue in front of its house.
Garden Boat is located opposite tiger’s house and had a dominating ride there. Nobody is riding except both of us.
This birdcage-like boat takes you on a cruise along a 200 metres canal.
Canal water is moving slowly and we enjoy green environment very much.
The park is housing various kinds of animals and it scattered around in their cages. Statue animal can be found as well. Some of the special species of tigers, peacocks and parrots are having their own park and section.
Light Fantasy On Water with giant animated aquatic animals decorated with numerous multi-colored lights floats proudly on the lakeside.

Vriesea & Topiary Garden.
Vintage Car is where you can drive it along and round the fish pond where you can experience nostalgic moments. Nearby the station, there is a fish feeding on mostly koi.
Musical Fountain is one of the attraction that still represent Mines Wonderful uniqueness in local tourism. Incorporating light, musical and water, the “water dance” is a spectacular sight.
Laser show is also available with multimedia presentation. Magic show comes after that. I started to become boring and go back after the show.
Restaurant and other cafe facilities are maintain so so and not many varieties. More places is worth to visit such as Road Tram, Unity Fountain, Unity Train, White Kingdom and etc.
