We decided to beat the crowd for Lego Land Malaysia by going during the PSLE marking days. Being rather clueless on the specifics of getting there, we grab an online deal that include a coach ride from Singapore Flyer. Getting there by coach took about one and a half hour that day due to all the time it took waiting for everyone to get through the custom.
It’s all worth it though and we got all excited looking at the giant figurines made with Legos as we enter the theme park.
We got there at almost 11.00 and after the long journey my 7 year old quickly give with to the temptation of visiting the theme park cafe for ice-cream (Set us back RM 10 for two scoops in a cup ) . There are plenty of Giant figurines that is made from Lego that keep us intrigue while we eat and examine the map.
The theme park is made up lands of 6 main themes – Lego City, Land of Adventure, Imagination, Lego Kingdom, Lego Technic and Miniland.
We decide to start with Lego City, having heard about the driving school there. There is two sections to the driving school. A small area for kids 3-5 year olds and a cool traffic circuit, complete with traffic lights, road signs and markings. Both these areas are kids only and parents will need stay outside. The kids are sent to watch a training video and assign to their cars for some hands on experience with driving.
Boating school, the wait is not too long, about 15 mins and it is kind of fun to control the boat.
The Shipyard is an outdoor playground that is rather artsy and unique, but the play structure is not sheltered and it’s scotching hot! The kids don’t seem to mind as they zip in and out of the ship.
Next we try taking the Lego Land Express, a Train which goes around the Mini land and Lego City. The wait is pretty long but it is pretty cool going round and is a good way to see the interesting structures in Mini land.
I think we have the most fun at the Rescue Academy in Lego City. Having to pump the level up and down to move the vehicle make it some how pretty exciting and fun.
Land of Adventure
Our active boy is all excited when he sport this land on the map. The pictures, which include one cool looking hill with a boat sliding into the water. We made our way there but is distracted by a building call Pharaoh’s Revenge. This turns out to be an indoor playground similar to Kidz Amaze. It’s not as big but comes complete with the foam balls, tiny bags to collect the balls, cannons for shooting and ball pit machine.
I think kids can spent hours here if we let them be. But this is not why we come to Legoland. Move on kids.
After getting him out of Pharaoh’s Revenge after much sweet talking, he zoom towards Beetle Bounce. Kids above 105 cm can take this ride without adult company. Which is fine with me as he go queue up to take the ride again and again.
Another fun ride is the Lost Kingdom, where we get to do some laser-blasting. The queue for this ride is rather long. Thankfully for many kids, there is a Lego play area where kids can keep themselves busy. There is a digital panel to tally our points on who shoot the most targets.
The slide in the river is called Dino Island. Unfortunately, it’s only for those who are 8 and above and more than 120 cm so we have to give it a miss. Be prepare to get wet if you decide to try this one.
