Legoland Malaysia | Legoland Theme Park

Staying in Legoland Hotel has a lot of perks. You get to wake up, brush your teeth, go down to the Brick Family Restuarant for breakfast, and then head straight to Legoland – by foot.

Nap time? No worries, walk back and get some rest. We didn’t nap though, because our theme and water park tickets were only good for one day and we wanted to cover them all.

Turn Left or Turn right

After you clear the gates, the first question you’re likely to have is “do we turn left, or do we turn right?”

The general answer is, if you’re there with children who are under 4 years of age or 110cm of height, turn right. Otherwise, turn left.

We didn’t research, turned left and ended up walking through almost half the park before Joy could go on any rides because of height / age restrictions (If you want it for reference, Joy was 3years old and 94cm tall when we visited). I’ve come to see it as a blessing in disguise though, because she was really happy when she could finally go on the rides in the later part of the day – I rather the it start disappointing but end happy, then the other way round.

What if it looks like it’s going to rain?

Go for the Waterpark rides (next post!) first. From what we understand, the theme park has 20-30% sheltered attractions and these will still be available but water park rides will definitely be suspended if it rains.

Rides and attractions in the Theme Park

As far as I can observe, the theme park is segregated into different themes namely, Lego Technic, Lego Kingdoms, Imagination, Land of Adventure, Miniland and Lego City. I like how each area has different rides and lego features to suit, some of them really fascinating. You can also see roaming performers and mascots in the park once in a while. All in all, when you step in, you kind of forget what the outside world is like.

We went on a Thursday and there was no queue for most rides or just a very short queue for some. Because of that, we managed to cover both water park and theme park in a day but if you’re going on a weekend or over a public holiday, it’s best to cater one day for each park to maximise enjoyment and minimize disappointment or avoid having to rush around the whole day.

Ready for the rides? Let’s go!

Technic Twister
Height / Age Restriction:
At least 110cm to ride with an adult
At least 120cm and 6 years old to ride alone

First ride we came across in the Theme Park but we didn’t see this ride in action as Joy didn’t make the hight nor weight requirements and there was no one else around. These machines look really fierce, don’t they.

Project X
Height / Age restriction:
At least 110cm and 4 years old to ride with an adult
At least 120cm and 6 years old to ride alone

The most exhilarating ride in Legoland Theme Park has got to be Project X – it has many sharp twists and turns and seems to be a super fast ride (as in speed). I didn’t try because I have acrophobia (unrelated: what happened the one time I tried to overcome my acrophobia) but the hubs did.

Mr Macho who laughed at me said “I think I’m getting old – it was really scary, especially the corners”

Aquazone Wave Racers
We (the hubs and I) were quite sad by this time, only able to look on wistfully as others had fun on the rides but thankfully, Joy took it really well, laughing when she got splashed with some water while the ride was in action.

The Dragon & The Dragon Apprentice
The Dragon is a more adult version, the Dragon Apprentice is more kids friendly. This roller coaster ride looks much gentler compared to Project X. I would have mustered the courage to go on it if the Hubs and Joy could come along but alas, Joy didn’t meet the minimum requirements, even for the Dragon Apprentice (100 cm, 4 years old to ride accompanied and 120 cm, 6 years old to ride alone).

Merlin’s Challenge
Height / Age Restriction:
At least 110cm and 4 years old to ride with an adult
At least 120cm and 6 years old to ride alone

This ride really looked mild. When we saw it, I let myself bear hopes that Joy could go on it accompanies, but still, no luck with the height and age limitation. Whyyyyy?

So Oddly Dreamlike | Mom Blogger on Parenting and Living in Singapore | Legoland Malaysia Theme Park

Royal Joust
Height / Age / Weight Restriction:
At least 92cm and 4 years old, under 12 and 100kg

This one is an unaccompanied horse ride that runs through a fixed track. Joy was elated when she saw that she exceeded the height limit but I noted the age limit and tried to prepare her for disappointment. Yes, she was disappointed in the end, but I think it’s a thumbs up to the keeper of the ride, who stuck to his guns because he was worried she wouldn’t be able to ride alone and that it would compromise on safety. No photos of the ride because Joy was really quite disappointed and we ushered her to the next ride to keep her mood up.

So Oddly Dreamlike | Mom Blogger on Parenting and Living in Singapore | Legoland Malaysia Theme Park
She was very very happy when we took this photo

Dino Island
Height/Age Restriction:
At least 6 years old to ride with an adult
At least 120 cm and 8 years old to ride alone

We saw the ride from afar and had no illusions that Joy could go on it. Reminds me of the ride at Haw Par Villa many years ago. I’ve never forgotten how it was like then, heart thumping as the ride rode up slowly and then suddenly stop just before we were about to go down. And then whoooosh down we go, all drenched and laughing. 3 years is a long time to wait for Joy to take the ride, but then again, I waited 2 years for Joy to be able to visit Legoland, whats another 3.

Pharaoh’s Revenge
Height/Age Restriction: None

Basically an indoor playground to escape from the heat. We didn’t play because we didn’t have the time to and it looks like a very small portion of the usual indoor playgrounds we have easy access to in Singapore.

Beetle Bounce
Height / Age Restriction:
At least 90cm and 2 years old to ride with an adult
At least 105cm and 4 years old to ride alone

Joy’s favourite ride in the Theme Park. I couldn’t take pictures while going on the ride but if you look at the photo, you’ll notice this green bench-like ride in the background. That goes up to the top and then bounces everybody down, stopping at mid air. Honestly, it’s a little thrilling for me but Joy was laughing so happily, people who watched us from below were laughing as well.

Playtown
The most infant / toddler friendly place in Legoland Theme Park. There are different stations in the Playtown where infants / toddlers can engage in imaginative play. A little non-exciting for me but Joy didn’t seem to mind.

So Oddly Dreamlike | Mom Blogger on Parenting and Living in Singapore | Legoland Malaysia Theme Park

Duplo Express
Height/Age Restriction:
At least 80cm and 1 year old to ride with adults
At least 100cm and 6 years old to ride alone

This ride is situated in the Play Town and is very popular with the infants / toddlers of course – we queued the longest for this ride. It’s really quite a boring ride for me, just us in the carriages going at a slow speed around a very small track but again, Joy totally didn’t mind. I think it’s the result of not being able to take the earlier rides. From this point onwards, she looked visibly happier.

So Oddly Dreamlike | Mom Blogger on Parenting and Living in Singapore | Legoland Malaysia Theme Park

Big Tower

Height/Age Restriction: I didn’t note it down but I saw people carrying infants up on the ride.

We saw this earlier but looking at it, we thought that Joy wouldn’t be allowed to go on it. The 2nd time we passed by, I saw someone bring an infant up the ride and I told the hubs “Lets go!”.

So happy, must take picture!

Lost Kingdom
Height/Age Restriction:
At least 80cm and 2 years old to ride with an adult
At least 120cm and 6 years old to ride alone

This ride is basically a shooting game, where you aim a laser gun at light targets while seated in carriages that run through some ancient features in a tunnel. Joy was afraid at some point in time, maybe because of the darkness but she recovered and relaxed towards the end.

Lego City Airport

This plane ride goes round and round as well as up and down. I stopped noticeing height / age limits because starting from here onwards, Joy could just about go on most of the rides and we were super excited.

So Oddly Dreamlike | Mom Blogger on Parenting and Living in Singapore | Legoland Malaysia Theme Park

Rescue Academy

This ride is very interactive. You get to pit against 2 other families in a race to move the vehicles from starting point to the rescue site, spray water aimed at the windows to put out a fire then race all the way back again. Be warned, you need strong arms because the vehicles are powered by pumping the levers on board.

We raced again two other families and won!

Legoland Express
If you’re running out of time, this is the ride to take because it brings you around the remaining portions of the theme park and you can strategically decide which are the last rides / places you’d like to go before the park closes.

I have to put this photo up because her pose is too funny not to share!

Boating School

My favourite ride in the Theme Park. I strongly recommend doing this in the early evening (so maybe it’s a good idea to turn left first), so that it is not scorching hot and the light reflection on the water can be enjoyed, rather than glaring.

Minimum 2 riders per boat, riders below 6 years old and 120 cm are required to ride with an adult.

So Oddly Dreamlike | Mom Blogger on Parenting and Living in Singapore | Legoland Malaysia Theme ParkSo Oddly Dreamlike | Mom Blogger on Parenting and Living in Singapore | Legoland Malaysia Theme Park

You control the ride with the wheel and a pedal. You can see that Joy pushed me away (when I asked her about it, she say she was just protecting me LOL) and decided to do the steering on her own.

So Oddly Dreamlike | Mom Blogger on Parenting and Living in Singapore | Legoland Malaysia Theme Park

There are a lot of lego features along the way and to do this ride in the evening is just calming.

Here’s Legoland Hotel, taken while on the ride.

Junior Driving School
For 3 to 5 year olds. When asked how old she was, Joy happily told the keeper that she was 3 years old that day and she got greeted with a genuinely cheerful “Happy Birthday!”.

This ride is for the juniors, to drive around the circuit and earn their driving license. Joy went on it for a really, really long time, possibly because there was no one else queueing up for the ride. She even got to switch cars. I really salute this ride keeper because he is super patient with Joy – she keeps on bumping into the kerb and going in the wrong direction but he just laughs it off and encourages her to go on.

I laughed so hard at this. She was really making a huge effort to concentrate and I think she was stepping really hard on the pedal.
So Oddly Dreamlike | Mom Blogger on Parenting and Living in Singapore | Legoland Malaysia Theme Park
And again! LOL

We spend an additional RM35 to buy Joy this driving license because she got it on her birthday itself, at 3 years old when she just met the age requirement. Memorable!

Driving license at 3. With the funniest profile picture. #joyis3 #joyotd

This is what the older children’s driving school looks like, I can’t wait for Joy to try this when she gets older!

Lego Features & Photo Ops

Other than rides, we were very happy to see lots of lego features in the Theme Park.

There were some thoughtful placements, like this lego table we found in queue at the boating school, to keep visitors occupied while waiting.

There are many giant / life sized lego features peppered throughout the Theme Park.

There are also roaming mascots and fixed features, which Joy ran towards for a hug, or two, or three or four.

Story: She squealed in excitement when she spotted him and I thought what happened. Then she hugged him so many times and for so long, I think he didn’t know what next to do, because he had already exhausted the wave, the high five and the different hug positions. LOL.

Story: Joy introduced herself (“My name is Joy!”) to each of them and hugged them in turn.

The next series of photos are some of the fondest memories we have of the Lego Features in the Theme Park, they’re pretty funny to me! I wanted Joy to enjoy the trip but really never thought that Joy would be so taken with the lego features.

As you can tell from this post, there is really a lot to see and do at the theme park (now you know why I took so long to write this!). In fact, we missed some of them so that we could focus on covering rides and features which all of us could enjoy together. I’d highly recommend coming because it’s such a happy place and the ride / attraction keepers had smiles on their faces and lots of high fives for Joy, which really made our day.

I’ll cover the Legoland Waterpark in another post but meanwhile, if you’re heading to Legoland, I recommend staying at Legoland Hotel (other than completing your Legoland experience, the convenience is a huge plus, especially for families with younger children) and setting aside a day for each park so that you won’t be rushed for time. For Legoland Hotel guests, there is a current 2 Day Combo ticket for price of 1 Day Combo ticket promotion. When booking online, remember to add on the 2-Day Combo Ticket under the “Add Enhancements” tab to buy your combo ticket and get the second day for FREE + Early Access to the Theme Park (at 9.30am).

Disclosure: We were sponsored one night’s stay at Legoland Hotel, Malaysia and provided with one day admission tickets to both parks. We paid for the 2nd night’s stay ourselves. All opinions are my own.
