The Lego bricks play a huge part of my childhood and i have always love them - growing up playing with them and i still remember those immense victory i felt as a kid whenever i managed to complete a Lego model or at other times even when it's just simply playing around with those loose bricks and building anything out of them stimulating the creative side of me. A Lego based theme park definitely entices me.
Legoland unleashed the kid part of me. For those who think Legoland is being built for children's enjoyment alone, well, one must visit this theme park and you'll realize its meant for adults too. All angles of this happy land are full of colors, lego bricks, fun and smile for everyone. I've been planning for so long to visit this place since it was opened last year, finally these plans came to life. Special thanks for this splendid birthday gift (September is my birthday month) from a long-time friend who also came with me on this awesome adventure to Legoland. Such a lifetime and memorable experience.
Legoland@Malaysia is certainly is one of the latest sensation among the locals and undeniably attracting a large number of visitors from neighbouring Singapore as well. I was really excited when i first found out about the project about 2-3 years ago, more so after learning that this first ever Legoland in Asia is build near Singapore, thus making it super convenient for visits. This is the 6th Legoland in the whole wide world and the first and only one in Asia.
Legoland is a theme park mainly targeted at kids, and the type of rides and activities available reflect that. There are 7 themed areas: The Beginning, LEGO® Technic, LEGO Kingdoms, Imagination, LEGO City, Land of Adventure and MINILAND. It’s an inspirational land where the children are the heroes. From Lego experiment centres to rollercoasters, the park is a day-long voyage of discovery for all the family.
Almost soon-to-completed Legoland Hotel.
Well stocked with goodies and the largest collection of Lego toys at The Big Shop. Most visitors (including me) were stucked at the souvenir shops whipping out wallet for these ultra cute merchandises.
What i really like are the Lego statues and figurines that you can see everywhere in the park. It's amazing how many Lego bricks can create such amazing art pieces!
The Pharaoh's Revenge at the Land of Adventure zone is another place where kids can engage a gun battle by firing away foam balls.
Visitors can also go on an adventure in one of 3 Lego 4D shows with eye-popping 3D special effects plus lots of entertaining physical effects.
The Land of Adventure consists of Egyptian- and jungle-themed attractions.
Legoland Malaysia is packed full of family fun with more than 40 rides, shows and attractions. Almost everything is hands-on, so you can push, pedal and program, or steer, squirt and splash, your way through a truly interactive experience – and of course there’s building too.
Remember to bring some change of clothes if you dare to try out the water-rides.
I didn’t really go on the rides in Legoland, but still enjoyed my stay there taking pictures and looking at all the things made with Lego (childhood toy!). I’m sure kids will enjoy it much more! I’ve never been a huge fan of theme parks and rides, but I’m pretty sure that I’d have loved going to the driving school for kids in Legoland, as well as the boating school. And the train ride. And the kiddy roller coaster. And the carnival games….
Lego Technic consists of high speed rides and high tech Lego. Project X is another thrilling roller coaster ride available in the theme park. It has more twists and turns than any other rides in the park.
At the heart and centre of Legoland is the Miniland. And being a Legoland in Asia, our Miniland focus is on various well known Asia and South East Asia landmarks and cities. Nothing beats the experience and memories of having traveled and personally made my mark at almost all (except for Myammar) of these distinguished South East Asia landmarks.
Lego Miniland where famous scenes from 17 Asian countries are recreated with more than 30 million LEGO bricks. The whole of Miniland is animated, and guests – big and small – can bring the models to life at the touch of a button. Each landmark has an info box, and with just a press of a button, watch as some parts 'come to life'. Some of my favorites are the Bollywood dance scene in the Taj Mahal, the dragon dance in Beijing, and water spouting from the Merlion.
I'm really impressed by how much alike and all the small details that are so delicately build by Lego entirely.
The cars were designed to look like replica of lego models and look very colorful. There were also several lego-inspired figures around the park where you can have your quirky picture taken. Even the fountain was made from lego.
It took me some time to digest all the iconic places and historical landmark of various countries the theme park portrayed.
The Petronas twin tower standing at 10m tall and made up of almost half a million bricks is the record setter for the tallest building at Legoland park.
Legoland knows no limits on adventure and excitement! It is a place of amusement and laughter for children, teens and adults. I personally feel that Legoland malaysia is for all ages. Everyone has a kid in himself which jumps out when feels comfort and trusty environment.
For me, Legoland is nice if you are a big fan of art and of course – Lego. Legoland in Malaysia is worth a visit, except that it’s really hot in there. Probably because the trees have not grown big enough to provide shade and more fresh air to breathe. I’m not sure if kids and senior citizens can handle the heat as well. And oh, by next year and the year after a Legoland Hotel and Waterpark will be built, so i am certain it would be even more fun to visit Legoland by then. :-)
