Legoland Malaysia Review

Malaysia Legoland

Legoland Malaysia was opened in October and set to open by early late 2012 in Johor Bahru at Nusajaya, Iskandar Malaysia Economic Region.

This will also be the first Legoland Theme Park in Asia and the sixth in the world after Denmark, Britain, California, Florida, and Germany. The massive 76-acre (31 hectares) project is brought together by IDR Resorts and UK-based Merlin Entertainment, costing a whopping RM750 million.

The good news for those across the border is that it will only be a 20-minute drive from the Tuas Second Link to Medini in Nusajaya, one of the five flagship zones of Iskandar Malaysia.

This will be the biggest family entertainment project in Johor which will attract tourists from locally, Indonesia and Singapore.

Among the attractions at Legoland Malaysia, a gigantic replica of the Petronas Twin Towers will be built using Lego bricks. It will be the tallest Lego structure in the world.

Replicas of famous landmarks worldwide such as India's Taj Mahal, Beijing Bird's Nest Stadium, Cambodia's Angkor Wat and Singapore's Merlion statue will also be featured, all made from Lego bricks.

All the main structures will be located at Legoland's Miniland. The theme park also has famous buildings in Johor Baru, such as the Royal Museum, Sultan Abu Bakar Mosque, and the Dataran Bandaraya clock tower.

Local shops at night in Johor are made from Lego bricks.

The Lego structures and many attractions, such as roller coaster rides, will be situated outdoors, while the food and beverage (F&B) outlets will be housed in air-conditioned buildings at the park.

A unique 4D theatre and kids driving school where children can obtain their first driving license, recognized by Legoland worldwide, are among the highlights.

Apart from the main park, there will be a Legoland Hotel and a Lifestyle Mall in the vicinity of the park.

50 interactive rides will be available, while a fantastic amount of 30 million Lego Bricks are used throughout the park for building structures.

The current completion date for the park has been set for early 2012, so stay tuned for news announcements. For further details on tickets and information, please read the end of this article.

Further news updates include an MRT Station, which is planned to open next to the theme park. No details are confirmed, but if it happens, it would surely be a wonder for those wanting an easy ride here.

And because of the tropical weather here in Malaysia, queuing areas will be covered as the developer has ordered thousands of trees to be planted within the park grounds.

I foresee that many will capitalize on Travel and Tour Packages to Legoland Malaysia.

Tour companies will take the opportunity to include this package for Malaysians, Singaporeans, and Indonesians, making the Southern region a worthy visit for holidaymakers.

Imagine spending 4 to 5 days around here where you get a chance to visit Singapore's Universal Studios, Sentosa Island and Legoland Johor in one visit where everything is just a drive away.

Ticket Prices for Legoland Malaysia Update:

Tickets for Legoland Malaysia are RM140 (US$44) per adult and RM110 (US$35) per child, with an RM30 rebate for MyKad holders. Read the end of the Pre-Opening Annual Pass.

The ticket price for an adult in Legoland, California, is around US$69 (RM210) per day, so there are a lot of guesses on how it will be priced here in Malaysia.

I am pretty sure that there will be Family Package Tickets and promotional prices for the opening. The park is also targeting about 1.5 million visitors annually.

For those who want to do some shopping, there are the recently opened Johor Premium Outlets (JPO) in Iskandar Johor.

KidZania Kuala Lumpur is also for family theme parks, which are now open in December 2011 (Delayed to early 2012). So there are several kids and family interactive theme parks in Malaysia now.

Final Thoughts on Legoland Malaysia Review

I am sure that most of you would have had some experience playing with Legos in your younger days. I clearly remember my uncle from the UK, who brought a massive Lego Box Set as a gift when I was about seven years old.

That alone kept me busy for many years, so you can imagine the thrill of visiting an entire park filled with these little colourful bricks. See Legoland Johor opening pictures during my visit there. I hope that you have already made your way to Legoland Malaysia.
