Legoland Malaysia welcomes tourists with new experiences



Legoland Malaysia welcomes tourists with new experiences

After a strong year for Malaysia’s tourism industry, travelers are now invited to try out both old and new Lego adventures at Legoland Malaysia Resort.

Last year Malaysia had 29 million tourists. Especially for the Lego-themed resort, Filipinos are among the top five markets to visit.

“During the Easter period we had many guests from the Philippines. But I see international travel happening all year round. Even in short periods, we have seen people integrate the park into their itineraries from Kuala Lumpur and Singapore,” said Thila Munusamy, director of sales and marketing of Legoland Malaysia, during a media briefing on April 17 in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.

The themed resort has been open since 2012 and is run by Merlin Entertainments. Based in Johor, Malaysia, one of its main focuses is to let children’s imaginations run wild as they build their own Lego structures in different areas of the park, facilitated by guided activities.

“Lego is the core DNA of our park, and the core DNA of Lego is imagination, creativity and bonding time,” Ms Munusamy said.

“One thing the pandemic has taught us is that the time we spend with our families or for ourselves, whether it be traveling or quality time with children, is important,” she added.

This year, the theme park is offering special promotions such as ‘Book Early and Save’, which will provide discounts to those who book tickets well in advance.

There are a number of newly opened attractions and special activities throughout the year.

MINILAND Amazing Malaysia is an area of ​​the park that showcases Malaysia’s iconic landmarks, cultural scenes and natural wonders, all built with Lego bricks.

Shade structures have recently been added to match the rest of the park to ensure visitors can wander around the attraction despite the heat.

There is also a new themed room at the Legoland Hotel. In addition to the Pirate, Kingdom, Adventure and Ninjago rooms, there is also the Friends themed room, popular among girls and boys who want to stay somewhere with a fun, trendy aesthetic. All rooms can accommodate five to eight people, ideal for families, and automatically include an equivalent number of breakfast buffets.

Legoland Water Park hosts a Splash Carnival in July, with a tropical beach theme, to give children the chance to freshen up with water activities.

Throughout the month of October, the resort will be putting up spooky decorations and hosting Halloween celebrations, with children encouraged to dress up. The usual Lego character mascots will be joined by Lego Dracula, and the Lego 4D Theater will add The Great Monster Chase to its 4D movie lineup.

For the end-of-year celebrations, Legoland Malaysia will install Asia’s largest Lego Christmas tree. Lego Santa will also appear in the park.

Finally, SEA LIFE Malaysia, the resort’s underwater aquarium segment, will reintroduce its exclusive SEA LIFE Underwater Dining experience. This allows guests to eat in the aquarium after hours, followed by a behind-the-scenes tour of the care of marine life.

“We are organizing bigger activities for families and friends, which will make Legoland Malaysia one of the top reasons for Filipinos to visit Johor,” CS Lim, divisional director of Legoland Malaysia, said at the press conference.

The resort is a three-hour drive from Kuala Lumpur and almost an hour’s drive from Singapore’s Changi Airport, he added, making it a great option to include in the travel plans of Filipinos in the region.
