“Could have been planned a bit better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Was very excited and happy to finally make it to Legoland - have been a Lego addict in the past.

The approach of the park could have been different. The walk from the car park to the entrace is quite a bit. A large part is covered but given that one is almost on the equator the heat can be a bit too much. Even the rain could be a handfull to manage. The car park itself is a bit confusing especially if you are coming for the first time.

The staff are all very very friendly. That was a nice experience. Once inside, the park is made up in a typical manner with small hubs where multiple rides are located. The connectivity of the different sections could have been better in the sense that all of them are long walks and without cover - so if the sun or rain are pelting down one is going to suffer. There a are a lot of rides but most of them are for kids. There are 3 external roller coasters of which one is for the kids. The other 2 are big but nothing like the Mummy or the Cyclone in Universal in Singapore. There might have been one more inside the Egyptian complex but I am not sure as we did not go in.

In the centre of the park is the exhibit for the replicas of important buildings in Asia. This was very nice to see. However, the Sun and heat gets to you. Being located in the centre it is also a bit difficult to decide when to schedule this - in the beginning or at the end.

THe entire park is made up to look like it has been made from lego bricks. While it is good for kids and hardcore serial Lego addicts it may get a bit monotonous for others.

The food options are OK - like any other theme park. Neither great nor bad.

Overall, certainly worth one visit. A must do if you have 5 to 15 year olds in the family. In that case this is a great attraction. Could have been planned better - seems to be frayed at the edges compared to Universal in Singapore.

“Kids had a blast - Mum and dad also!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

Checked out Legoland on a day trip from Singapore through WTS travel. Not overly impressed with the bus trip that was half an hour late leaving the Flyer AND Legoland waiting for a couple of late passengers! Why delay the trip for a whole bus load of people because of a couple of inconsiderate passengers?

Anyway aside from that the park itself was great. We had read all the reviews about the heat etc but it was not that bad the day we went (Mon 2 Sep) and we only had a brief bit of rain in the afternoon but a massive lightening storm after the park had closed! We also went on a week day not in school holidays and seriously there would not have been more then a few hundred people. We went on the rides over and over again with no waiting in lines. The kids even had a Lego Robotics class all to themselves! I can't imagine how frustrating it would be to go on a busy day and queue for ages in the heat with the kids for a ride that lasts just a few minutes. I would suggest avoiding it during Malaysia/Singapore school holidays and weekends!

As other reviewers have mentoned the rides are geared towards younger kids but us oldies enjoyed the larger roller coasters. Teens looking for jaw dropping thrills will need to look elsewhere though!

All in all this was a great day out. The kids are already eyeing off the Legoland Hotel and waterpark currently under construction!

“The World in Bricks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Our trip here was on our 2nd day at Singapore, so we managed to get a packaged tour which already included the entrance fee to the theme park. It was a 45 mins bus ride & made two stops 1 - Singapore immigration & at the Immigration of Malaysia. The ride was cool & comfy & the view was nice as you get to see a glimpse of Singapore's outskirts as well as the immediate vicinity of Johor Bahru. Since we're quite a number & have several kids on board, we laughed as they all shrieked with excitement upon seeing the Legoland Hotel's facade. Once there, we immediately posed at the park's marker & proceeded to enter. The park boasts of rides, game rooms for the different park's motif, an observation tower, similar to that in Sentosa Island, Singapore, & of course the crowd drawer- the amazing famous landmarks of the world in bricks. I marvel at the intricate labor put on this place & what makes it even more cute is that is has buttons whic you press to hear the specific country's song, sound of the structure's theme like for the Tianamen Square it has the dragon dance beat where the characters move to life.. and we were surprised to find our entry there - the town of Bolinao, Pangasinan, complete with the fishing village, vessels, jeeps karitelas & structures around town! The staff were all courteous & very assistive. You can likewise ask them to take your pictures as many shots as you please. In case you don't have RMs ( currency) they accept SG dollars but if you have change it will be in ringgits. ( the rate when we were there was P1: RM 13). The children will definitely have fun in this as they get to squeeze their creative juices in the activity booth & the rides are good as well. In case you need to fuel up your hunger pangs, food stalls/kiosks/restaurants are conveniently located around, of course there's always the Legoland Hotel for a more sphisticated food choice. But if you're craving for more, you can go out of the park to the Medini Mall, where you can grab a taste of western cuisine & the other known food chains. The park operates from 10am - 8pm since we were there on a Saturday. But since we're on a tour we chose to pick the 5pm pick-up time. It was just enough to fully explore the park.

“LEGOLAND - finally!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

As a family TOTALLY adicted to Lego, visiting legoland has been a long held dream. Unfortunately all the European legolands are closed over winter (the only time we ever get to venture north). So the discovery of the newly opened Legoland in Malaysia was like a dream come true!
We stayed at KSL in JB andused there package deal to visit Legoland - good value!
Our 8 hours at the park were not excessive, but i do not think it is more than a one day visit.
The park itself was amazing; paradise on earth for Lego fans. The theming, scale, diversity and animation of the displays was brilliant. The rides ranging and suitable for the young to the fearless. Mini-world Asia was overwhelming.
Shops were great - retail prices, so no bargains, but TOTALLY like being in a lolly-shop! The PICK - A-BRICK wall was fantasic.
ONLY disappointment was the food; as "westerners" we would have love some Asian food - and all that was available within Legoland was "fast-food". Good Asian food was available in the plaza before Legoland and the "local Malaysian food supermarket was a delight to explore"
LEGOLAND Malaysia - just FANTASTI
