Love lego but wondering if all the fuss about Legoland opening tomorrow is worth it? Here’s a round-up of a few Malaysian travel bloggers who were invited to the media preview, so you can find out for yourself.
Here are the best previews from earlier on in the month that we found from local bloggers. I recommend you read each of their blog posts to get a better overview of Legoland from our summary.
About the rides
Ignorant Brat: "I must say that most of the rides were non-suitable for adults like me."
Nomad Gourmand: “I wasn’t impressed at first with the rides, but that’s because I’m a thrill seeker who prefers extreme, adrenaline-rushing rides. Legoland is a family theme park, and kids are bound to be happy with the fun rides here; which was the main objective of Legoland in the first place.”
Robo, My Trips: “Everyone was so happy and excited with all the test ride, I told myself...I will definitely back to the park!”
myKembara: “The Dragon's Apprentice is for those who want to have a taste of a roller coaster because it has a 'mild' challenge curves and heights. Then if you have the confident, upgrade to The Dragon and let your adrenalin rush takes over. However if you are brave enough, just skip the Apprentice.”
About the food
Ignorant Brat: "Good to know that these are easy to find throughout the whole park. There are currently 7 cafes and restaurants to taste your buds."
Nomad Gourmand: “... there isn’t a need to worry about food. Every themed area has a food joint...”
Robo, My Trips: “The foods were Awesome! I got myself a piece of Pizza, nice chicken and the fried Udon noodle for the 1st round...:) Satisfied!”
myKembara: “Food too is priced quite high (to my spending power). To save money I just bought kids pizza for lunch.”
3iling: “The food and drinks here are quite expensive as I had a spaghetti with meat balls for RM19.50 and a glass of Sprite for RM4.80. Don't ask me about the quality of the spaghetti as I guess you can pretty much derive the conclusion.”
About the Park
Ignorant Brat: "A tad too expensive for my liking."
Nomad Gourmand: “LEGOLAND® Malaysia mainly targets families with children between the ages of two and twelve. The Park is fully interactive. With over 40 rides, shows and attractions there’s something for everyone, including the young at the heart.”
Zaraaluwi: “The games and adventures are first class! We enjoyed our visit very much!”
myKembara: “Entrance ticket is a bit expensive considering the income of average Malaysians. For foreigners such as Singaporean it is considered cheap compared to their Universal Studio.”
3iling: “One of the highlights of Legoland is the 4D Adventure Cinema experience. This place has the longest queue for the day. The short Lego movie incorporates 3D effects and also added effects that you can befall on you unexpectedly.”
Ignorant Brat: "I might revisit in..errr... 2014 when the theme park is fully operational with the hotel and waterpark."
Nomad Gourmand: “Legoland is extremely hot, no thanks to our humid Malaysian weather. Luckily I kept on piling on sunblock and had a cap with me else I would have been baked red. If you’re not squeamish about walking around with an umbrella, I strongly advise you to bring one along.”
myKembara: “Ladies DO NOT wear high heels. Sneakers, walking shoes is more appropriate. Jogging shoes is much better.”
3iling: “I felt that the overall park is very well suited for kids aged between 5-12 years old. Adults like us would probably be admiring the Lego structures or accompanying the kids.”
Are you going tomorrow?
So overall? Sounds like a fun place - bring lots of sunblock, drink lots of water and prepare to have a fun time!
