Legoland Malaysia is the first Lego theme park in Asia. When I heard it was opening, I got really excited since my daughter and I love Legos. When we found out it was just in Johor, Malaysia, we knew we had to visit as soon as possible.
We decided to get straight bus tickets from WTS Travel for a smooth trip to Legoland Malaysia. We got a combination bus and entrance ticket package since it comes out a bit cheaper. You guys are luckier since their online ticketing was not yet available when we were getting the tickets, we had to go to the Singapore Flyer to book them. The Singapore Flyer is also the location for the bus trip. The trip takes about 1 hour depending on the lines at the immigration counter, be sure to bring your passports since you are crossing to another country, Malaysia. Our trip took a little more than an hour so we arrived at a little past 11am.
Since we got the ticket and bus package, we were already handed our tickets beforehand. There was no need for us to line up so we went into the park immediately.
The first thing that you will see are the stroller rentals and toilets as well as a couple of gift shops. Have a browse around the The Big Shop, which contains the largest selection of Lego toys in Asia. Across is The Brick Shop where they sell Lego blocks by weight and you can buy accessories as well as create your own mini figure. The prices are loads cheaper than the ones sold in the Philippines, so choose away or find that missing piece or set for your collection.
Be amazed at all the life sized Lego creations all over the park.
The first ride we went on was the “Technic Twister“. This did not make me as dizzy as I expected considering Lauren trying her best to spin it even more. Just don’t do this on a full stomach.
The food was pretty good and quite reasonable considering its inside a theme park where they usually price gouge you. What made it even better was the Lego figures all around you.
One of the most interesting areas was the Miniland. There are various reproductions of sights all around Asia, including the Petronas Tower, the Singapore Flyer, our local jeepney and even a busy street with great attention of detail, all made from Lego.
Lauren enjoyed our initial ride in “The Dragon” roller coaster that she rode it by herself twice after. This is located in the Lego Kingdoms area.
“The Lost Kingdom” interactive ride, located in the Land of Adventure, was nice but we all felt Buzz Lightyear in HK Disneyland was much better. It was still a nice respite from the sun.
For smaller children, Legoland has a play area for them in almost all the theme zones like this Playtown. It has slides and structures where children can explore.
The Tower provides a bird’s eye view of Legoland Malaysia. You can see all the rides and attractions as well as the areas where they are still developing. They are adding a waterpark in 2014 and a Lego hotel will be operational in 2015.
The ride Lauren enjoyed the most was the Driving School. A very realistic ride were the kids even attend a sort of driving school before being led to their electric powered rides. The track features real stoplights, two way street and real road signs. You can even have a Legoland driving license made for an additional fee of MYR25, makes for a great souvenir.
It was a great adventure visiting Legoland Malaysia, although it was a bit hot with their trees still young and not providing enough shade. I highly recommend the park for children upto the age of 12, older than that and they’ll be bored. Lauren actually want to go back in 2014 so she can stay at the Lego hotel and also visit the waterpark.
Visitors to Legoland Malaysia might also want to check out the Hello Kitty Town, located nearby.
