Opened its doors on Sept 15 2012, Legoland Malaysia had over 40 interactive rides, shows and attractions offering day-long voyage of discovery. Legoland Malaysia is also the first Legoland theme park in Asia.
Legoland Malaysia 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.
Legoland Malaysia is expected to open its water park on October 21, 2013. Among the much awaited attractions in the water park are Build-A-Raft River and Joker Soaker. An adjoining hotel to Legoland Malaysia is scheduled to open early 2014.
Legoland Malaysia is located at Nusajaya, Johor, Malaysia. Legoland Malaysia is situated next to Kota Iskandar, the new administrative center of the Johor Government. In case you get lost, the GPS Co-ordinates are N 1 25.642, E 103 37.792.
What to bring
The weather in Legoland Malaysia is quite unpredictable. Sometimes it can be blazing hot and sometimes it can be raining like cats and dogs. To be on the safe side, remember to bring a rain coat or an umbrella. By the way, a poncho(made from a watertight material) in Legoland sells for RM15. Also bring along lots of plain water and snacks because food is really expensive there.
For MyKad holders, the price for 1 day tickets, adults (12-59 years) is RM120 whereas for kids (3-11 years) is RM90. For annual pass(valid for 12 months after purchase), the price for adults (12-59 years) is RM275 whereas for kids (3-11 years), the price is RM210. There is also a limited time promotion whereby family ticket price is RM310 for family of 4 and RM390 for family of 5.
At the moment, the Legoland Malaysia Hotel is still under construction. There are a few hotels near to Legoland Malaysia such as Traders Hotel, but we prefer to stay in Johor Bahru city. Reason is because Nusajaya is quite a new township and does not have many choices in terms of amenities, food and attractions. On the other hand, the hotel that we stayed in, Hotel Grand Sentosa in Johor Bahru is strategically situated adjoining to a shopping mall with food outlets and convenience stores just nearby.
As expected, the price of food inside Legoland Malaysia is quite expensive. We exited from Legoland Malaysia to have our lunch at Medini Mall, located outside Legoland. Medini Mall has a variety of retailers such as outlets for snacks, desserts and confectionery, as well as other food and beverage outlets. Among the tenants are KFC, Chicken Rice Shop, Pancake House, Absolute Thai, Crepe Signature, Manhattan Fish Market, Penang Village, Tutti Frutti, 1901 and Blackball.
