Legoland – Opening on 15/9/2012

Legoland Malaysia is set to open by 15/9/2012 in Johor Bahru at Nusajaya, Iskandar Malaysia Economic Region. This will also be the first Legoland Theme Park in Asia and sixth in the world after Denmark, Britain, California, Florida and Germany. The massive 76-acre (31 hectare) project is brought together by IDR Resorts and UK based Merlin Entertainment costing a whopping RM750 million. The good news for those across the border is that is it will only be a 15 minute drive from the Tuas Second Link to Medini in Nusajaya which is one of five flagship zones of Iskandar Malaysia. This will be the biggest family entertainment project in Johor which will attract tourist from locally, Indonesia and also Singapore.

Among the attractions at Legoland Malaysia, there will be a gigantic replica of the Petronas Twin Towers, all built using Lego bricks and it will be the tallest Lego structure in the world. Replicas of famous landmarks from around the world such as India’s Taj Mahal, Beijing Bird’s Nest Stadium, Cambodia’s Angkor Wat and Singapore’s Merlion statue will also be featured, all made from Lego bricks. All the main structures will be located at Legoland’s Miniland. The theme park would also have famous buildings in Johor Baru, such as the Royal Museum, Sultan Abu Bakar Mosque and the Dataran Bandaraya clock tower.

The Lego structures and many attractions such as roller coaster rides will be situated outdoors while the food and beverage (F&B) outlets will be housed in air-conditioned buildings at the park. A unique 4D theatre and a kids driving school where children can obtain their first driving license, recognised by Legoland worldwide are among the highlights here. Apart from the main park, there will be a Legoland Hotel and a Lifestyle Mall in the vicinity of the park.

A total of 50 interactive rides will be available while an amazing amount of 30 million Lego Bricks are used throughout the park for building structures. The current completion date for the park has been set for 15/9/2012.

Further news updates include an MRT Station which is planned to open next to the theme park here. No details are confirmed but if it happens, it would surely be a wonder for those wanting an easy ride here. And because of the tropical weather here in Malaysia, queuing areas will be covered as the developer has ordered thousands of trees to be planted within the park grounds.

One thing I foresee is that many will capitalize on Travel and Tour Packages to Legoland Malaysia. Tour companies will take the opportunity to include this package for Malaysians, Singaporeans and Indonesians making the Southern region a worthy visit for holiday makers. Imagine spending 4-5 days around here where you get a chance to visit Singapore’s Universal Studios, Sentosa Island and Legoland Johor in one visit where everything is just a drive away.

The ticket price for an adult in Legoland California is around US$69 (RM210) per day so the price is almost a steal here in Malaysia. I am pretty sure that for the opening, there will be Family Package Tickets and promotional prices. The park is also targeting about 1.5 million visitors annually.

For family theme parks, there is also KidZania Kuala Lumpur at The Curve NX which has opened since December 2011. So there are a number of kids and family interactive theme parks in Malaysia now. I believe that this park will open in 15/9/2012 without any delays so that I can pay a visit here to fulfill a childhood bucket list. I am pretty sure that most of you would have had some experience playing with Lego in your younger days.

Till 15/9/2012, see you all at Legoland Malaysia! Be certain to purchase more photo shots in KidZania or Legoland as they would bring you wonderful memories in the years to come…..
