Legoland

Legoland Malaysia is was opened on October 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 sixth in the world after Denmark, Britain, California, Florida and Germany. The massive 76-acre (31 hectare) 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 is it will only be a 20 minute drive from the Tuas Second Link to Medini in Nusajaya which is one of five flagship zones of Iskandar Malaysia. This will be the biggest family entertainment project in Johor which will attract tourist from locally, Indonesia and also Singapore.

Ticket Prices for Legoland Malaysia Update:
Tickets for Legoland Malaysia are RM140 (US$44) per adult and RM110 (US$35) per child with a RM30 rebate for MyKad holders. Read the end for the Pre-Opening Annual Pass.

Among the attractions at Legoland Malaysia, there will be a gigantic replica of the Petronas Twin Towers, all built using Lego bricks and it will be the tallest Lego structure in the world. Replicas of famous landmarks from around the world 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 would also have famous buildings in Johor Baru, such as the Royal Museum, Sultan Abu Bakar Mosque and the Dataran Bandaraya clock tower.

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 a kids driving school where children can obtain their first driving license, recognised by Legoland worldwide are among the highlights here. Apart from the main park, there will be a Legoland Hotel and a Lifestyle Mall in the vicinity of the park.

A total of 50 interactive rides will be available while an amazing 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.

For construction updates of this project, The Theme Park Guy has pictures of the place going through the building process as he visited the site in early January. Further news updates include an MRT Station which is planned to open next to the theme park here. 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.

One thing I foresee is 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 holiday makers. Imagine spending 4-5 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 have yet to be confirmed but the word out there is that it will be very affordable for a family of six people. 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 for the opening, there will be Family Package Tickets and promotional prices. The park is also targeting about 1.5 million visitors annually. For those who want to do some shopping, there is the recently opened Johor Premium Outlets (JPO) in Iskandar Johor.

For family theme parks, there is also KidZania Kuala Lumpur at The Curve NX which is now open December 2011 (Delayed to early 2012). So there are a number of kids and family interactive theme parks in Malaysia now. I am pretty sure that most of you would have had some experience playing with Lego 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. Hope that you have already made your way to Legoland Malaysia.

Henry - I agree that it should be interesting.

Lily and CleverMunky - I guess this will be the first of 3 planned theme parks in Iskandar. We have the land so one never knows what may be planned for the future.

I grew up playing with Lego, you should be pretty cool to know this space.

David Jr said... 27 August 2011 17:48

Recife - I think most of us in out 30s-40s would clearly remember Lego from the early days. How can I not enjoy Legoland in Johor?

Lily/CleverMunkey, there wont be any disneyland in m'sia, particularly in nusajaya, johor. it will competing directly with universal studio. disneyland r not interested at all. what nusajaya need is theme park that is not competing directly with universal studio. that why they come up with legoland. Legoland is for family, suitably with children under 15. universal studio is caterred for adult and teenager. what nusajaya needs is something different, like wet n' wild & seaworld in brisbane, disneysea tokyo, seaworld orlando.

Do not visit Legoland Malaysia especially during hot weather or else use sun block before enter the park! Not enough cover area ! Almost burn under the sun...crowded everywhere especially while queue for the game. Can't compare with universal studios singapore! Not interested to enter again after 1st visit due to tired queueing, waiting, hot .. Small fan fixed at waiting and queue area! Especially 4D theatre...waiting area suppose install of air cond and covered all around ....
