Legoland (Malaysia)

Lego enthusiasts, both young and the young at heart, be prepared to be entertained and immerse in lego and more lego. Legoland Malaysia opened its doors on 15 September 2012 and has already received rave reviews by those invited for the preview. This lego themed theme park will officially open on 22 September 2012. However, despite the rave reviews, the launch did meet with a small hiccup when a Legoland train derailed and the handling of the matter by security was not very professional albeit resolved.

In any case, this family-friendly (lego) influenced theme park is Malaysia’s first international theme park and the first in Asia built with more than 50 million lego bricks and divided into seven themed areas that sprawl over 30 hectares. The other Legoland theme parks are located in Denmark, United Kingdom, Germany and California and Florida (USA).

The target market for this theme park (given its lego theme) is families with children between the ages of three to twelve years old, but of course if you love lego and are young at heart, you can visit this legoistic place where your imagination and creativity are entertained lego style.

Miniatures of some of Asia's best known landmarks such as Malaysia's Petronas Twin Towers and Singapore's Merlion and Boat Quay made out of lego bricks are displayed at the theme park; adding to the ambiance. Moreover, to add to the fun, there are roller coaster rides at Lego Kingdom and a driving school for smaller children. The driving school is an interesting concept that enables small children to experience and control Legoland’s traffic.

According to the Legoland Malaysia website, there are 40 interactive rides, shows and attractions, with other Lego-themed attractions nearby opening in the near future: a water park and hotel are scheduled to be ready by 2013 and 2014 respectively.
