LEGOLAND Theme Park to Open in Malaysia
LEGO lovers are in for a ride!
No longer your average construction toy range, LEGO has now expended into exhilarating theme parks. LEGOLAND Malaysia is the sixth LEGOLAND to be built in the world and the very first in Asia. Located in Johor Bahru, this massive fun town covering 76 acres of adventure will be packed with more than 40 rides, shows and attractions. Nearly all of the rides are hands-on, so you can push, pull, pedal, programme, steer, squirt, splash, crawl, climb and yes – build your way through a full day and more, of non-stop fun.
The park is divided up into seven themed areas. Each theme area is designed to ensure that heroes of all ages will find much to explore and enjoy at the LEGO experiment centers, roller coasters, water attractions and shows. The whole family can thus embark on a day-long voyage of discovery, adventure and fun!
Slated to open at the end of 2012, here’s a snippet on what you’ll be expecting:
This entrance area is where the fun begins. The Big Shop offers the largest selection of LEGO toys.
This is where kids can captain a boat and drive their own LEGOLAND cars and even get a driver’s license. At LEGO City Rescue Academy, the entire family can race in LEGO fire trucks to hose down a “burning” building
At Miniland, millions of LEGO bricks form spectacular reproductions of Malaysia’s landmarks, including Petronas Twin Tower and Kuala Lumpur. There will also be other Asia’s icons such as Merlion (Singapore), Angkor Wat (Cambodia), Taj Mahal (India) and many more. Miniland also features animated models that would interact with each other.
LAND OF ADVENTURE
Journey through this forgotten city’s ancient temple ruins to recover a pharaoh’s stolen treasure. Beetle Bounce gives kids a boost as they are launched up on Egyptian obelisks. And for the bravest families, test your courage at the Dino Island!
The Imagination is a place for the true LEGO fan. Everyone in the family can build and play with LEGO bricks and games from LEGO car races to MINDSTORMSTM robotics. The Kid Power Towers lets you climb up for an amazing view before you drop and pull yourself up again. There are no limits to your imagination here!
This kingdom is yours to protect. Conquer The Dragon, romp through the hideaways and ride astride at the Royal Joust.
All heroes must face a challenge. On the TECHNIC Test Track, it’s building up the courage to brave razor sharp turns and drops. Then power ski on Aquazone Wave Racers as you dodge water blasts.
