Finally after so many friends and colleagues have been talking about it. After missing the chance to visit it during the opening. We got our chance to play at Legoland Malaysia! Kless and the 2 girls were sponsored by Legoland but I have to pay for my own ticket with a discount.
It was a Monday and yet the place was super crowded. The queue started as early as 930am when the place is only opened at 10am. Thanks to the benefits of the media invite,we were able to jump the queue and went straight in via the Guest Entrance. So the girls were able to wait in an aircon room while we settled the ticketing.
If you are bringing younger children, there is a stroller rental counter available – M$20 for single-seated stroller & M$30 for double-seater stroller.
Living to its name, Legoland is indeed covered with lego figures.
Adding to the Christmas feel, a lego Christmas tree.
First up in Legoland is the Lego City. Here, Joey & Jayne finally had a chance to try driving at the Driving Schools, even though it is lego bricks. The waiting time is at least 1 hour on a crowded day.
The driving centre is separated for kids from 3-5 and 6-12 years old. Jayne has Kless to queue up with her but poor Joey has to stay in queue alone for one whole hour.
Looks like Joey will surely get her licence in future. She actually drove quite well and kept to her lane. Good girl!
Inside the park, you can always find a few large sheltered play area for the kids. This is extremely important, you must know where the sheltered areas are so that when it rains (high possibility), you won’t be caught surprised and drenched. We were very blessed to reach the biggest sheltered area just before it started to rain. Ended up, it was a good time for Jayne to take her usual afternoon nap for about 1.5 hrs.
Alternatively, you can prepare raincoats or umbrella and brave through the rain and maybe find some different form of fun in Legoland. But if you child is still young, I would suggest not.
Lunch is easy to settle as long as you are prepared to part with at least M$50 for 2 plates of chicken rice, 1 cup of soft drink, 1 cup of coffee and 1 serving of fruits. I am talking about the Market Restaurant. Basically the food are not cheap in the park, a set of nuggets with some fries and a small packet of drink costs M$15. A bottle of coke is M$5. A can of potato chips and a packet of ribena sweets set me back by M$12.
But like everyone who goes on a holiday, all the expenses should be part of your planning in the first place. if not, bring along your sandwiches, hotdogs and drinks, that is also a good plan.
Some of the family games available is the Rescue Academy. A family of 4-5 pax can sit on one of these fire-engines and pump your way to the houses and the kids can save the fire. Quite a strenuous game I would say.
Another suggestion would be the “Beetle Bounce” found in the Land of Adventure. Most of the rides are suitable for kids 3 yo and above. If not, an accompanying adult is usually needed. In this case, Kless volunteered herself for the task. Papa hates height.
The chair of doom.
Thankfully I am not alone, Joey doesn’t like any rides that are too “adventurous” too.
Getting ready for the ride. Can you see Jayne is holding on to Mummy’s hand tightly?
But once the ride started, Jayne was totally enjoying it, no frightful screams, Daddy is proud of you. Joey on the other hand is getting bored and a bit tired because of the heat.
A few interesting lego art.
If your kids are older, then you have to try the Dino Island ride. The minimum age is 9 yo.
Journey on from the Land of Adventure, you will reach the Imagination segment.
Here you can find the studios with 4D movies.
The Duplo Express that circles round the entire park.
Next part is the Lego Kingdoms.
The main attraction is the Castle Stage.
That is because this portion probably holds the most exciting ride in the entire park – The Dragon. Kids must be at least 5 yo & 100cm size to ride on it.
For the younger kids, try out the multi-level treetop hideaway.
Lego Technic is where you can find the amazing Albert Einstein lego figure.
A thrilling wave surf awaits those who don’t mind getting slightly wet.
Project X is a wild ride on a steep switchback track. Personally I think this ride is even more
dangerous exciting than The Dragon ride.
Both the girls are contented to just take a photo on the test ride car. Hallelujah!
One last ride before you head off to the next segment is the Technic Twister. Just like what the name suggests, spin the wheel and twist like crazy.
Joey imitating the artist at work.
Finally before you leave, head on to the Miniland. This is where you can see the world in an amazing way (the Lego style). It took 3 years and more than 30 millions bricks to recreate some of Asia’s best known landmarks in detailed miniature.
Before you leave, drop by the 2 lego shops and buy some for the kids.
I never know there are so many types of lego sets. How I wish I can have all these when I was a kid.
Dinner can be settled just outside Legoland before you go home. There are a few choices available and quite a number of snack shops which is not foreign to Singaporeans.
Just a word of reminder, if you are planning to take taxi from Legoland to the Checkpoint, set aside M$50 cash. The 20mins journey running on taxi meter will set you back for that amount.
Leave you with this photo I felt that sum up the entire trip. Legoland was fun but the rain dampened the mood.
