Trip to Legoland Malaysia

I'm sure most of you know that we can find a lot of 'Kids Go For Free' voucher to Legoland Malaysia last year right? I'm not sure whether these vouchers are still available this year. But I got mine through Toys R Us, Munchy's biscuits and Dutch Lady's milk packet drinks. Wanting to make full use of those vouchers before it expires, we made a trip to Legoland Malaysia end of last year.

Prior to the trip, the kids already knew about the trip to Legoland Malaysia. They were so excited and they kept harassing me with questions like 'how many days more?' Haha. As the trip was at the end of the year that also means rainy season. So it was not a surprise that the weather started out cloudy that day. I was praying hard that it would not rain. We woke up early that day and after the buffet breakfast at the hotel, we left for Legoland Malaysia. We arrived so early, 1 hour before its operation hours(10.30am). Sounds 'kiasu' right? LOL. It wasn't on purpose but we started the journey early just in case we got lost. The pros for arriving early were the queue..there were none! Haha. Also we got to take our own sweet time for toilet breaks and take some pictures before charging in. But when the opening time was drawing near, the crowd became bigger and people were already lining up to go in.

Caught this picture of the children sleeping before I woke them up. Angelic? 

Kids already running in even though we were early. The parking  lot was quite far and you have to walk quite a distance. So many ticket counters to accommodate when the crowd is big.

The famous entrance to Legoland Malaysia. The kids already peering in the theme park, can't wait to go in. Then when the doors were open they were greeted by a green dragon. 
The first thing we did when we entered was to obtain the Park Map then we proceeded to the rental counter to rent a twin stroller for the children if they get tired. But even before the trip, I've already surfed their official website at www.legoland.com.my to get more information, look at their map and plan the activities. The children had their first ride at the Junior Driving School and Driving School. This is a very popular ride so do this ride first before the queue gets freaking long.

Joseph enjoyed himself immensely at Junior Driving School.  I think he went on the ride 4-5 times, I've also lost count. LOL. He was so happy that he could finally drive a car after being rejected at Kidzania. Cheers to Legoland Malaysia. 

Elizabeth however had a bit of difficulty at Driving School. Too many roads and road signs maybe? Rules to abide? She's a girl after all. Her cousin brother, Han Yang seems to be doing better. 
There were many interesting Lego creations around the park like the one at the picture above. It's Legoland after all, land of many many Legos. Haha. Too many that I didn't bother to take every single one otherwise this blog post will be too long. The Technic Twister Ride at the picture above is a very common ride in theme parks like those spinning cups. Suitable for young children although I'm not saying adults can go on the ride. Ahem!


The weather at this point was unpredictable. One minute it was sunny and one minute it was gloomy again. Thank goodness even if it was sunny, the sun wasn't scorching my skin. The Aquazone Wave Racers Ride looked like an interesting ride but too bad I didn't give it a try because Elizabeth chickened out and Joseph's height was not eligible for the ride. As you can see from the picture, the queue was getting longer by the minute. There were two islands for this ride and I don't understand why only one island was open even though the queue was getting longer. A lot of time wasted just queuing. The management should have opened the second island then it would make the queue move faster.

It was a relieved to enter the LEGO Academy as it was an indoor area and air conditioned. Good to get away from the heat for a while and cool down the body. We can build whatever we want in LEGO Academy and even proudly display our creations at their display area.


Then we headed on to another area of the theme park called LEGO Kingdoms. There we went to The Forestmen's Hideout (picture above). It's like a multi level playground so of course the children will enjoy. But make sure you keep an eye on your kids as they can get lost easily. It's a hideout anyway so you can expect them to hide away from you. Maybe I'm just paranoid after so many lost children cases.

Royal Joust Ride is suitable for younger children. They liked it and went on it twice. Merlin's Challenge Ride is a common ride at theme parks too. It can get too fast and I can see that Joseph was a bit terrified with the speed. 
I think there was nothing at Castle Stage but it is good background for photo opportunities though. Elizabeth enjoyed herself with Gong gong on Kids Power Tower Ride where you have to pull yourself up the tower with the rope.
We spent a lot of time at Build and Test when it started to pour. What a bummer. Then papa and the kids went on the DUPLO Express Ride and DUPLO Playtown while the rest of us went for a 4D movie experience at LEGO Studios. The kids still couldn't get over their 'scary' experience at Shrek 4D in Universal Studios Singapore. LOL.
The 4D move at Lego Studios were actually very kid friendly. The seats were stationary unlike the ones in USS. And there's no ticklish feeling like something is crawling up your legs too. LOL. It's all wind, rain or snow. No fire. That's why it's kid friendly in my opinion and the movies are not scary too. But still after much persuasion, the kids refuse to go and I can't force them right?

The movies available at Lego Studios. Take your pick or if you don't mind the queue, queue for all movies! LOL. Observation Tower and Beetle Bounce, common theme park rides too.

These three kiddos enjoyed it so much that they asked for a second round.
Surprisingly, Elizabeth enjoyed the Beetle Bounce ride a lot. I didn't put high hopes and thought I would have to calm two crying children after the ride. But it turns out I only have to calm one crying child after the ride (Joseph!) LOL. I think his experience would have been better if he had not been separated with his cousins during the ride. He didn't like the squirmish feeling in the stomach when the beetle bounced down I guess.

I heard Legoland is not Legoland if there's no Miniland. Mini replicas for you to 'wow' at. The Petronas Twin Towers looked like the real deal at one glance right?

Pharaoh's Revenge is an indoor playground. Lost Kingdom Adventure is a ride where you can find for lost treasure with the laser gun.

Legoland Express is a good way to hitch a ride around Legoland Malaysia just for the fun of it. Rescue Academy needs good team work. The parents can pump the lever to make the fire engine move and the children can spray water from the hose to the building to put out the fire. Parents can really burn a lot of calories for this ride man..phew!


Lego City Airport is another common theme park ride but still fun for younger children. Something new here is the boating school where you can maneuver and press the pedal to move the boat. Nice experience. Finally, I took a picture of the Lego Christmas tree. I'm not sure whether it is originally not lighted or it was because it was already closing time. Many people were seen spending a lot of time in the shops to buy some souvenirs or Lego toys before leaving the place. We were one of them...guilty as charged. Hehe. So go to Legoland Malaysia! I'm sure your children will enjoy it and you will not regret it..;)
