It’s my first son’s 7th birthday and we wanted to give him a remarkable birthday party. He decided that he wanted to go to Legoland, Malaysia – and it was truly an exceptional more-than-a-party birthday experience – ever!
LEGOLAND INTERNATIONAL THEME PARK and WATERPARK is located in Johor, Malaysia. It’s 50.2 KM from Singapore (about 55 mins) but 328.8 KM (about 4-5 hours by bus) from Kuala Lumpur. Yes, it is located on the provincial side of Malaysia that is basically nearer coming from Singapore.
Legoland is made out of 50 Million Lego Bricks to it’s 15, 000 Lego Characters! You can either avail the waterpark or theme park (or both). See the ticket price here
I am not really a big fan of Lego’s but I was absolutely amused by the detailed and concrete handcrafted Lego Bricks!
At the entrance of the Legoland, you will be given a map with five different sections. Each section has different styles which are educational, family-friendly and fun-filled environment!
So, let’s start the journey!
1. Lego Technic
Most activities here are action-thrilled full of rides with twists and turns like this 18M high Roller Coaster ride from the Project X! Is your 8-year old ready for an exhilarating ride? For safety reasons, kids below 120cm should be accompanied by an adult. Don’t forget to drop by at the Techni Twister, too!
2. LEGO KINGDOM
I was captured by the medieval times in this second section, Lego Kingdom! The knights, swords and castles will make you feel you’re travelling back to the middle ages – plus the music will accompany you throughout the way! There are also rides inside this kingdom – so let your young warriors’ journey, BEGINNN!!!
Welcome to the world of learning, creativity and fun! This is my favourite section among all because you will see that the kids will be truly engaged! 4D Cinema shows, thrilling rides and LEGO building competition! The tricky part: With other kid-travellers around the world, you can see how much you made your kid. Can she wait in a long queue? Can she play equally with other players? Only you can tell!
4. LAND OF ADVENTURES
Welcome to the land of ancient Egypt and the only way to escape is to get wet!
5. LEGO CITY
Your kids can learn the real traffic-circuit system if you enrol them in the Driving School in this area! There is also a driving license (not valid outside LEGOLAND) to acquire at the end of the driving session so don’t miss the fun of seeing them trailing to another achievement! Bruuuuuum!
It takes two years to build this MINI ASIA with 50 different nationalities – so don’t belittle it!!
The day is almost done when you’ll reach this place, I bet. Your kids can calm down from the best day of their life so far – and learn some different countries and their points of pride, too. Maybe your kid can tell you where he wants to go next.
When I looked at my son’s smile after our exhausting adventure, I told myself that this is one of the PRICELESS moments of my life. I wish he could always wear that smile that no LEGO company could ever build.
How much do you like LEGOLAND? I appreciate your comment below!
