LEGOLAND® Malaysia, my family got to relive our childhood plaything all over again!
LEGOLAND® Malaysia Resort has seven themed areas of attractions for all ages such as The Beginning, LEGO® Technic, LEGO Kingdoms, Imagination, LEGO City, Land of Adventure and Miniland. The rides and attractions at LEGOLAND® Malaysia range from roller coasters to water rides with a LEGO® theme throughout. The Park offers a unique and hands-on experience where children can take control.
The Driving School, for example, offers children the chance to drive a car and earn their very own LEGOLAND driver’s licence. My 19-year-old son was exhilarated when he spotted these children driving. Sadly, the Driving School is only for kids age from 3 to 13 years.

In Miniland, children become giants among Asia’s best known cities, countries and landmarks, entirely made out of 30 million LEGO® bricks on a scale of 1:20! At the same time, LEGO fans of all ages can find out if their creations could really work at the Build and Test Centre.
It took three years and more than 30 million LEGO® bricks to recreate some of Asia’s best known landmarks in detailed miniature. Stroll through famous scenes from 17 Asian countries, including the Petronas Twin Towers, the Merlion Statue and the Taj Mahal. The whole of #Miniland is animated, and guests – big and small – can bring the models to life at the touch of a button.
Built with a cost of RM6 million, the attraction features seven scenes from the six Star Wars™ films and The Clone Wars™ animated series in great detail. The interactive model display area will use more than 1.5 million LEGO bricks and have more than 2,000 LEGO models depicting scenes from all episodes.
Asia’s 1st LEGOLAND Water Park is ideal for families with 2-12 years old children with more than 20 slides, over 70 LEGO models and much more!
Containing over 3 million litres of water, almost everything is hands-on so you can push, pedal and program, or steer, squirt and splash, your way through a truly interactive experience – and of course there’s building too!
If you've been to theme parks like Disneyland or Universal Studios, LEGOLAND® is probably nothing much to shout about. We read that future plans are in place for LEGOLAND Malaysia to be the largest family destination resort in Southeast Asia, so we were a little disappointed with its size. Nonetheless, it's an awesome theme / water park for a quick getaway for family activities especially those with young children, creating an opportunity for families to bond over play time.

We thought the Miniland over at the theme park, where famous Asian countries and cities are recreated, is simply amazing and it's a must-see!
LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort is a great destination for families with various activities lined up for all visitors throughout the year. Strategically located at the heart of the rapidly developing Iskandar region in Johor Bahru, the Park is accessible to both local and international visitors. The excellent transportation network enables visitors from Singapore to arrive within 10 mins from the Tuas Second Link by road and 45 mins from Changi Airport.
My family had a 4D3N stay at DoubleTree Johor Bahru by Hilton, which is about 5-min drive from City Square Shopping Mall. An estimated 20-min ride from our hotel to Legoland set us back at about RM 50, and the return journey was about RM 60.
Weather wasn't good for us at the parks as you can see from the gloomy skies in some of the photos. It was raining one minute and sunny the next throughout the entire day. It's a pity we didn't get to see and do much due to the weather. Thank goodness we had a night stay at the hotel, so we could shuttle to and fro between the parks and hotel and not at the mercy of the weather.
Point to note: Water Park may be closed during rain and there's no refund. So I would suggest buying the combo ticket which entitles the holder to enter both LEGOLAND Water Park and Theme Park. If it rains, you could at least visit the theme park first and participate in their indoor activities, and return to the water park when rain stops. Please slab on lots of sunscreen if you're going to be outdoor the entire day as the sun can be very unforgiving!
Lastly, book ahead to enjoy great promotion on ticket price! I've to admit the entrance fee is a bit stiff. A Combo ticket ( theme park + water park ) will cost you - Adult: RM 175, Child ( (3-11 yrs) / Senior (60 yrs+): RM 140. So please book your tickets early to save 20% more!

During this period, children that come dressed in their spookiest costumes will be rewarded with a free entry to the Asia’s 1st LEGOLAND Theme Park!
In addition to that, there will also be a pumpkin carving challenge for children and face painting sessions. Guests can also delight in the photo opportunity with the Resort’s giant pumpkin made entirely from LEGO. The design and building of this special showcase took more than 300 hours.
A specially decorated Nissan Almeera car will also be on display in the area for guests. There will be a pumpkin counting contest and fun activities around the vehicle with exciting mystery giveaways.
