Legoland Malaysia Theme Park

ABBEY: We went to Legoland last April 7 as part of our "payment" to our Ate Sol for helping us in paperworks of our "cashcows". We were there at 9AM when the park opens at 10. Why? To have our pictures taken without any obstruction just like we had on our visit to Hong Kong Disneyland. We got our jumpshots, wacky and Facebook-profile poses. We also had some snaps at the hotel. We even had our breakfast before the gates open. 

When it is about time, we queued up on the gate and the Red Lego brick is welcoming the guests. The staff shouted "Are you ready?" and the crowed roared with a deafening "Yes". The gates opened and we headed on the left side of the park where Project X is located. It was not yet open as testing is still on-going for a couple of minutes. We then decided to try AQUAZONE Wave Racers. This water ride is good. Turn right and you'll be on the outside track and you'll get wet. Turn left if you just want to get dizzy. Then we boarded Project X; a roller coaster with a 4-man car that will take you maybe 10-storeys high and put a ton of butterflies on your stomach as you go down very fast.


You will be fascinated by the lego structures of the famous landmarks like Petronas Towers, Singapore Flyer, Taj Mahal, and Angkor Wat. They also have their 4D theater but Universal Studios Singapore's is better. We also tried their 2 dragon roller coasters (The Dragon and Dragon's Apprentice). We enjoyed The Dragon so much that we requested for a second round. Dino Island is a water ride and make sure all electronics are not there with you on the ride as they might get wet.

We all got dizzy first in Technic Twister and on Merlin's Challenge; they will just want to lose your orientation :)

Sam had the ride of his life when he entered Legoland's driving school. He even got his driving license just for a day. Last stop is the Legoland Express. I'm expecting to see some sceneries of the park but all I saw is the back of their park rides (maintenance rooms).

We got to try Beetle Bounce (a tower ride that will bounce you up and down) and Observation Tower (a 360-degree view of the theme park). 

Already hungry and thirsty by the heat of the sun, we headed to a fast food chain and to prepare for Legoland Waterpark.





























WILL: I heard a lot of "not-so-good" reviews from people went to Legoland in Johor Bahru Malaysia. It so hot because there is not enough roof/tree to cover the people; the rides are so childish; construction is still on going. Those were the rants I've heard from colleagues, friends and even relatives. So Abbey and I decided not to go until my nephew came here in Singapore for a 10-day vacation. I know he can't enjoy the Universal Studios, as there are age and height restrictions at the rides. And that's time for us to go to Legoland Malaysia.

As usual we were early, this is for us to take picture of the themed park logo "alone", haha! Friends told us that it seems we rent out Legoland for the whole day. We hate long queues so we went there on  Monday. When mascots arrived at the entrance hall, there's a burst of enjoyment and excitement is high. When the gate opened, we rushed to the middle of park and turned left for us to take the every ride that we can have.

Firstly and so early we got wet, not just once but twice! Haha! The Wave Racers was so exciting we had it with a second round. Samuel is naughty that he intentionally put the car in front of the splashing waters. 

Abbey is afraid of roller coasters but he have the guts to get this on. Hey, no loops ahead! 

We went at a 4D theatre  I hope that the management will look on the sanitation of the area. The stench is unbearable. 

Waste of time in the train. Nothing to see. Maybe if you are tired walking and you still want to be on the move, train ride is an option.  

My nephew enjoyed a lot the driving school. They were taught how to drive and how to follow the traffic lights. 

Overall, this is a great place to go not only for children but for young-at-heart.
