Almost canceled this trip after reading reviews here, but I already bought the tickets, so I went through…
We went on Jan 02, hired a van from Singapore. All went smooth, no queue at both Immigration. We reached Legoland less than 1.5 hour. Arrived at 10:30 expect to meet huge crowds. But, lucky me, there was almost no crowd at all. They said that because the Malaysia and Singapore student had already back to school. We only need about average 5 minutes for each ride, except for 4D which we only wait for 10 minutes. Even there was no queue at all for some rides. My good day? Maybe. But it was way too empty for a theme park to create the holiday atmosphere.
Location : in the middle of nowhere. Nothing surrounds except the connecting Medini Mall.
The rides : All rides aimed especially for younger children (5-12 yo). No real thrill here. The most interesting rides for me are the Dragon, the Dino, and the 4D cinema.
In the Lego City Zone, they have shows at Lego Rescue Academy, Lego City Airport, and Lego City stage that are educated and fun. I only watch half length of the Lego City show, it’s too hot to sit in the non aircon space.
However, the Miniland is fantastic. This is the best area in this entire park. There are interesting places in Asia, eg Clarke Quay SG, Angkor Wat Cambodja, Forbidden City China, Tanah Lot Bali, etc. They’d made it very detailed (although I don’t know whether all made of Lego brick or special custom brick, who knows). But again, I think they made a little bit too much of miniature Malaysia places here IMHO.
The park : it is very hot with no / only a few shaded areas, and the weather can change suddenly from a very hot into heavy rain. Talking about hot, it’s very very very hot. Trust me, I’m from Jakarta which also hot, I know very well about hot so I can guarantee you what I’m saying. That said, when the sun out you will be baked in scorching sun, but when the rain comes, everyone will rush into the restaurant, store, etc. I felt very exhausted, soaked, and lost of mood after 3 hours, can’t imagine how it’s in the peak day. Even my 8 yo son lost his mood to try the Driving School.
And also, the park is lack of decoration ornaments compared to USS in Singapore.
Food : Bring as much water as you can. They don’t allow you to bring any outside food but they didn’t check my backpack either. If you need some food, you can go forth and out to Medini Mall which is better and cheaper as long as you have the stamp and bring your tickets.
The Lego prices are similar compared to Singapore and Jakarta. No need to buy anything from here except one or two keychains for souvenir.
Overall, it is a good theme park, but could be better in the next few years after the trees are growing up and the hotel / water park construction is done. Up to now, I prefer go to USS.
