“Mixed feelings.”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

Brought 3 young kids and the oldest at 8yrs old got bored after about 3hrs here. So I'd say break it up if you can. Not that many rides that will challange older kids but it's nice to walk around and marvel at the architecture. It's really hot so bring a hat or umbrella.

Pretty crowded and I went on a weekday! Lots of schools bringing their students there for an outing so you might have to wait quite a while for the popular rides.

Food and drink prices inside are pretty high considering that you can get much cheaper right outside the gates. Just get a stamp on your hand for a return visit and head out to eat and buy drinks.

“Legoland with Friends”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

I booked tickets on a deal site with friends at SGD 58 each which includes coach transfer from SG to Legoland and back.

We reached there at around 9.30 am when the park is not opened yet. Hence, we headed to the nearby Mall of Medini for breakfast.

We were there on a saturday and the park opens at 10 am to 8pm on weekends. As we got our tickets from a tour agency, we do not need to queue.

I would recommend those without kids to start touring the park in a clockwise direction.
We tackled the more exciting rides first which is THE DRAGON and PROJECT X. They were quite fun and for the adults, these 2 rides are basically the most exciting rides the park has to offer now.

The other more exciting ride would be Dino Island which is similar to Rapids Adventures at USS, and this is a ride that will definitely get you wet!

A lot of the rides there are for kids only but we had our fair share of fun at rides that allows adults to accompany their kids. Like the Boating Academy and Rescue Academy are both quite fun and great for those young at heart.

My friends and I were practically stuck at the Mini land for at least an hour. The many architectures built with lego simply caught our hearts. Took many photos there! One thing about legoland is that there are many staff there who will help you take your photos with your own cameras and you will only have to allow them to take your photos with their camera too. No harm, since we're not force to buy the official photos anyways.

There's also many of those fun fair stalls around for you to try your luck at winning prizes. My guy friends managed to win the huge teddy bears for their girlfriends at the basket ball stall. That is one stall that is quite feasible so you guys can try your luck there! Some stalls are quite impossible to win but some has high chances so you have to judge for yourself. You have to pay from RM 10 to 15 for a game. But they were offering the games at RM 20 for 3 rounds at some stalls. No harm trying!

We tried the pizza place near Imagination I think and it's not that bad. Pretty ok and reasonable for a family combo for RM58 for 4 persons considering it's in a theme park.

Waiting time for the rides are pretty ok, ranging from 5 to 20 minutes for most of the rides.

We even managed to go on the rides twice in a row when there's no queue at all. :P

For family with kids, please do check the height requirements for the rides as I've seen many kids being rejected at some rides. You won't want to disappoint your child at a theme park right?

Do bring sunblock, shades and caps as the sun there is poisonous! It's scorching hot there that we don't mind getting wet at all by taking the Dino Island ride thrice!

If you're looking for thrills and excitement then this might not be for you. But if you are just looking at some fun time with a bunch of friends (young at heart ones) , this is a good place to go at least once. XD

“don't visit on weekend/holiday”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

“Just have fun!”
Reviewed January 13, 2013 via mobile

Traveling with a 11 years old daughter, we all have so much great time.
We had been to CA Carlsbad Legoland before my daughter turns 2, until today she still remembered the fun she had, proud of her driving license she got in CA. So, we brought her to this newly and nearby legoland before she turns 12 (some rides are for age below 12), first ride was driving school where she got her "driving license", it's cost RM25, but for her is the joy and memory for the next many years to come, this is priceless.
After heard and reading all the bad reviews, we came in fully prepared ourselves for the weather, service, food, queue and even toilet. You know what, we have no problem at all. The rain and sun won't stop us for having fun. The employees are friendly even sometime hardly understand what they were trying to say (hey, we had been to Japan,all the theme parks only spoke Japanese and we still had so much fun even we didn't understand a word). The pizza that we had at pizza mania was thin and crispy which we all love it so much. No queue anywhere, oh yeah, it is Sunday. And be fair, I visited few locations of their toilets, no bad smell, few air fresheners installed in the restroom.
When we came in least expectation, and what we received is full of fun and joy. Be positive and have fun. Your bad mood may ruin your child(ren) priceless memory!
Few tips:
Don't visit during long weekend, public holiday or school holiday
No exclusive lego sets, for those sets they are selling, the price is way too expensive. I can simply get those very cheap during local department store sales.
Bring cap, poncho, umbrella, water, sun block, portable fan.

“Legoland-lite”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

I'd been to the original Legoland in Denmark, so knew what to expect when I visited here on a day trip from Singapore.

I found the crowds daunting, even on a weekday, and the lack of shade made the going tough. The wait for the rides quickly ballooned out to 60mins for most attractions.

Be aware that there are insane height restrictions on some rides - and you will not find out until you get to the load in. I had to console our 6 year old who missed a relatively tame log flume ride at the 11:59:58 hour (yet she was fine to do a much wilder version in Jurassic Park at Universal Studios???)

Also, understand that the multiple border formailites will take time - our bus waited, but we held them up when a slow moving Malaysian Imiigration official took her sweet time with the four people ahead of us...

I know it is a lot further away, but if you are a Lego fan, save up and go to Billund.
