I guess many people have already been to Malaysia’s very first LEGOLAND® Malaysia in Johor. Since its opening in September 2012, I saw many bloggers and friends went to the new theme park, some for reviews and some for leisure. My instagram was flooded with all the Legograms. After seeing all the pictures and reviews, I also want to go! I’m also a kid leh.
After the long wait, I finally got the opportunity to go. Heehee.. It was a weekend getaway with Bok, Carol and Eric and we stayed at Amansari Residence Resort.
Legoland, here we come!
We arrived at about noon time and there were *kuak kuak* no queue at all at the ticketing counter and also the entrance. Comparing this to other branded theme park, quite a disappointment to see no crowd before getting inside, but on the bright side, we know that we won’t be queuing long for rides. *smiles*
Prices & Tickets
The 1-Day Theme Park Ticket is from RM110 (Children) and RM140 (Adult), additional add ons for Water Park and such. There’s also 2-Day Ticket pass and annual pass. If you purchase online you get additional discounts on the tickets. All this you can check online here.
Going through the entrance was a breeze. No queue at all. Friendly staffs too. Very smiley. Like.
On a side note, theme parks in Malaysia does not permit outside food and drinks. When I was in Korea and Japan, the theme parks there actually allows outside food and drink. They even provide picnic area for you to rest and enjoy your food! What the….
I’m saving my money from the ticket and I’m going in by jumping over the barrier. Then, got money to buy food and drinks inside. (SINCE EVERYTHING IS OVERPRICED INSIDE. That includes mineral water.)
Parents can bring their own stroller for kids. If not, you can always rent one in the park.
Just as you enter, you’ll notice this mini market. Here you can shop for Legoland merchandises, such as keychain, t-shirts, magnets, Lego toys and so much Lego stuffs.
LEGO Superhero fridge magnets
LEGO Ice Cube Tray
Also, can rent lockers, strollers and wheelchair.
Got surau also.
Big Shop to spend all your money. More LEGO merchandises in here.
Still Christmas mood here.

LEGOLAND MINILAND is a wonderful way to see the amazing world. It is said that it took three years and more than 30 million LEGO® bricks to recreate some of Asia’s best known landmarks in detailed miniature. Seeing the heavy dark cloud over our heads, we hurried go through some of the famous scenes from 17 Asian countries.
And there’s LEGO Star Wars too.
The Forbidden City was the emperor’s palace of the Ming and Qing dynasties – that’s more than 500 years! The entire palace has more than 980 buildings and covers 720,000 square meters!
The Great Wall of China
The Taj Mahal was built by the Mughal emperor Shah jahan in memory of wife. It is considered a masterpeiece of Mughal architecture. It took thousands of workers more than twenty years to build!
Karaweik Hall is a gigantic barge on the Shore of Kandawgyi Lake in Yangon, Myanmar. It was inspired by ancient royal barges; the word “Karaweik” comes from the name of a mythical bird. Inside is a large restaurant where guests can see traditional crafts and dances.
Angkor Wat is a temple complex in Angkor, Cambodia. It was built by King Suryavarnam II in the 21st century. By area, it is the largest religious building in the world!
Wat Arun is a Buddhist Temple on the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok. Its name means “Temple of Dawn”. It was built in the 19th century, and it is decorated with seashells and pieces of porcelain used as ballast in boats from China.
Hoi An is a city in Vietnam on the coast of the South China Sea. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In the 16th and 17th centuries, it was a major trading town for Chinese, Japanese, Dutch and Indian merchants. In modern times, tourists come to see the historic buildings, and visit the shops and restaurants along the water.
Singapore, officially the Republic of Singapore, is a Southeast Asian city-state off the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula, 137 kilometres (85 mi) north of the equator. An island country made up of 63 islands, it is separated from Malaysia by the Straits of Johor to its north and from Indonesia’s Riau Islands by the Singapore Strait to its south. The country is highly urbanised with very little primary rainforest remaining, although more land is being created for development through land reclamation.
Port Tanjung Pelepas
The Port of Tanjung Pelepas is a port for container ships located on the eastern mouth of the Pulai River in south-western Johor, Malaysia. Receiving its maiden vessel on 10 October 1999 on a three-month trial operation, it set a world record as the fastest growing port with 1 million twenty-foot equivalent units (TEU) of containers handled after 571 days of operations.
Putrajaya is a planned city, located 25km south of Kuala Lumpur that serves as the federal administrative centre of Malaysia. The seat of government was shifted in 1999 from Kuala Lumpur to Putrajaya, due to the overcrowding and congestion in the Kuala Lumpur areas. Nevertheless, Kuala Lumpur remains Malaysia’s national capital, being the seat of the King and Parliament, as well as the country’s commercial and financial centre.
Kuala Lumpur is the federal capital and most populous city in Malaysia. The city covers an area of 243 km2 (94 sq mi) and has an estimated population of 1.6 million as of 2012. Greater Kuala Lumpur, also known as the Klang Valley, is an urban agglomeration of 7.2 million. It is among the fastest growing metropolitan regions in the country, in terms of population and economy.
Might as well take some “iconic” pichas with our national jagung laa.. Heee..
Overall, LEGOLAND® Malaysia is more suitable for family trips, especially with young ones. That way you can really enjoy the theme park. To be honest, I find the tickets very pricey. I mean for the scale of the theme park, having to pay RM140 onwards (mind you, this is excluding water park), there are less than 20% RIDEABLE rides for adults (minus those under maintenance). I would rather top up a few more bucks for another theme park just over the border. Anyway, #justmyduapuluhsen.
The only thing appealing to me is the MINILAND.
LEGOLAND® Malaysia Resort is open most of the day in 2014 from 10 am until 6 pm. Longer opening hours apply on weekends (till 7pm), during school and public holidays (till 9pm) for LEGOLAND®Theme Park. The Water Park on the other hand has a fixed opening hours: 10am til 6pm.
