Well, ever since Baby and I heard about LegoLand Malaysia a few months back, we have been thinking of making a trip down to check out what Legoland Malaysia has to offer. A 1-day adult [ages 12-59] ticket cost RM 140 and a 1-day child [ages 3-11]/senior [ages 60+] cost RM 110. Here's one piece of very good news; if you book your tickets online 7 days in advance, the adult and child/senior ticket will cost ONLY RM 105 and RM 75 respectively!
To get to LegoLand from Singapore, you can either drive there or take the public buses! For both Baby and I, we decided to utilise the public buses. Here's how you can get to LegoLand Malaysia via public tranportation.
First, you will have to take the MRT train to Jurong East Station. Once you have reached, head to the Jurong Bus Interchange and look out for CW3 or CW4 buses. These buses go to CIQ 2 [Malaysia Customs] via the Singapore Customs and the trip in will cost you SGD $4.
The bus will reach the Singapore Customs in Tuas and you will have to alight the bus to clear immigration. Once that is done, board the same bus [CW3/CW4] and it will take you to CIQ2. After you get your passports stamped at CIQ2, you will have to board a separate bus [JPO2] to LegoLand Malaysia. This will cost you RM $2, so be sure you have small Malaysian currency notes on hand. By the way, JPO2 also goes to the Johor Premium Outlets; so if you fancy some shopping after checking out LegoLand Malaysia, you can do so at your convenience. However, do note that the frequency of buses are unlike that of Singapore's; so please plan your trip properly before you go to LegoLand. For information regarding the busing details, you can check out http://www.legoland.com.my/Plan/Bus-Services/
This is the interior of JPO2, very much like the buses in Singapore but much more comfy.
About 50 schools from Johore were invited to LegoLand Malaysia yesterday and though it wasn't crowded, we had to queue for certain rides and attractions at LegoLand. Looking at the cheerful and joyful children certainly reminded us of our pre-school times!
You can choose to purchase your tickets on the day you're visiting but I would strongly recommend you to get your tickets online as you will enjoy great discounts. But well, if you're a ticket collector, then you can purchase the tickets from the ticketing booths.
Here's even more exciting news for you. LegoLand will be opening a water theme park next year and in 2014, they will have a LegoLand Hotel too! During the media briefing session, I overheard a conversation that a Hello Kitty Land is in the pipelines as well but I can't be too sure how reliable this news is.
Here's where park guests will have to put out the fire and it takes team effort to put out the fire because one will have to aim the water hose at the right spot while the rest will have to pump water from the fire hydrant in order to have water flowing to the water hose.
In imagination, there is an Observation Tower which goes up to about 50 metres in height and you must check this out because it gives you a bird's eye view of the whole LegoLand park! Unfortunately, it was closed for maintenance when we went there.
and that's me fooling around with the human catapult! I almost had a heart attack when I heard some sound coming from the catapult and thought that I was really going to be catapulted! Lesson learnt: don't anyhow sit on objects that seem harmless and stationary.
After checking out Lego Kingdom, we went to check out the Miniland and we were really so amazed at the intricate details that the team at LegoLand Malaysia put together to create Miniland! As we were running short of time, we only managed to shoot some photographs of Singapore's landmarks that were seemingly real!
Baby and I really enjoyed ourselves at LegoLand Malaysia and it was a pity that we didn't have enough time to catch all the attractions and rides as we wanted to catch the 1630 hours bus back to CIQ2. So, we will definitely visit LegoLand Malaysia again and we just can't wait to check out the rest of the exciting park attractions that we have missed.
