We had the privilege of attending Legoland Malaysia grand opening on the 15th of September 2012 along with 9 other bloggers, thanks to Maybank and Legoland. As a Lego enthusiast, I had the opportunity to see first hand many architectural wonders at Legoland Malaysia. I was also secretly happy when CityGal told me that she would be away in Hong Kong for a business trip. She’s more of a Barbie Doll person than a hardcore Lego fans than I do. Hence, I got my buddy Chris to come along and we had so much fun exploring the theme park!
Legoland Malaysia is a theme park for families, with 7 themed areas and over 40 interactive rides across 76 acres. The choices are amazing; the fun enormous and the memories will last a lifetime.
Legoland Malaysia is also well equipped with amenities and services such as first aid, locker rental, baby care centre, lost & found and stroller/wheel chair rental.
Well stocked with goodies and the largest collection of Lego toys; most visitors (including me) were stucked at the souvenir shops whipping out wallet for these ultra cute merchandises.
We first hopped into Lego Academy where one can obtains all the help one needs to build educational Lego models, bricks by bricks.
We spotted the royal castle from afar. It is actually the Lego Kingdoms where legends and myth come to life.
Lego Kingdom is brought to us by Maybank, Malaysia’s largest financial services group.
Kids will enjoy this horse at the Royal Joust.
This track is hidden in the jungle, surrounded by wild animals and fantastic creatures.
Can you spot all the amazing animals on your horseriding voyage?
For a thrilling experience, come and experience The Dragon roller coaster.
With two fire-breathing dragons to ride, visitors can take on its twists and turns deep inside the royal castle.
It is everything you need for an action packed family day out!
Crowns, tiaras and costumes are available for sale for the many little crown prince and princesses who visit the Lego Kingdom.
What’s a theme park without these game stalls (available at additional charges)? It recreates a real carnival atmosphere.
Hook a dragon! Look at the intensity on the participants’ faces!
Imagination: where Lego knows no limits.
The Kids Power Tower challenges visitors to test their strength by pulling their two seat car up a nine meter rope. Who is this kid by the way?
The observation tower at 60m height; offers an excellent aerial view of the park as it slowly rises.
Visitors can also go on an adventure in one of 3 Lego 4D shows with eye-popping 3D special effects plus lots of entertaining physical effects.
Lego Technic consists of high speed rides and high tech Lego. Project X is another thrilling roller coaster ride available in the theme park. It has more twists and turns than any other rides in the park.
Aquazone Wave Racers is something to consider for the wet and splash experience! Great to cool off on a scorchy hot Malaysian weather.
Land of Adventure features ancient Lego worlds, with the forgotten worlds of Pharoahs and dinosaurs.
Dino Island is definitely the wettest ride in Legoland Malaysia. There’s no escape in getting wet with the 12 metre high waterfall.
Bettle Bounce is like the mini version of Drop Tower. With only 15 foot high, it’s child friendly.
The heart of the Legoland Malaysia, however, is located in Lego Miniland. It is also my favourite themed area of Legoland Malaysia. Here, Asia’s most famous countries, cities and landmarks are recreated on a scale of 1:20, using more than 30 million Lego bricks. It took the team more than three years to complete these beautiful structures.
Many of the models are animated, so visitors can bring Lego figures, trains and airplanes to life at the touch of a button.

Lego City is a place where children can drive a car and sail on a boat – so it’s educational too!
Driving School offers children a unique chance to drive on a true-life-life traffic circuit.
In Boating School, families can sail together with three people on a boat.
Set on 150 acres of landscaped park, Legoland knows no limits on adventure and excitement! It is a place of amusement and laughter for children, teens and adults. Ideal for families and friends getaway too! Thanks Maybank Malaysia and LEGOLAND Malaysia for having us, we had so much fun!
