At Last! The opening of Legoland Malaysia.
Yes, Luis' 8th birthday gift was revealed. And his face was wrapped with excitement and he was giggling endlessly. I made sure he will be there at the day of the opening of the first Legoland amusement park in Asia, and the sixth in the world! (some of the other locations are in Germany, USA, and Denmark.) Something I cannot afford my son to miss. We booked ourselves at Orchard Hotel in Singapore and hopped to buses going to Johor Bahru, Malaysia.
LEGOLAND Malaysia is packed full of family fun with more than 40 rides, shows and attractions. 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.
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. It’s an inspirational land where the children are the heroes. From LEGO experiment centres to rollercoasters, the park is a day-long voyage of discovery for all the family.
The centrepiece is MINILAND, where Asian landmarks have been recreated using more than 30 million LEGO bricks. It’s an interactive world on a scale of 1:20, where people, trains and aeroplanes come to life at the touch of a button. (will make a separate post just for Miniland as this, for us, serves the highlight of the whole amusement park.)
Of course, to beat the long queue at the counters during the opening, we had our annual pass arranged before we flew in(they also have day passes, which are cheaper of course, but we opted for the annual pass so we could go back next year once the Legoland Hotel is built). These were ready when we got there. No sweat :)
Now the pics...
