Legoland Malaysia – still as fun as ever

If you have young kids like us, chances are you would have been to Legoland Malaysia at least once. We have visited the theme park for the first time 2 years ago when Missy 10 was 8yo and youngest was 1 yo. Back then, I was sure the elder 2 kids would enjoy very much except for the toddler who could only play on very kiddie rides.

Then last year December, I was half expecting my Missy 10 would complain that the rides at this park would be bored especially after she had enjoyed more adventurous rides in Universal Studios. You know, when one of your kids become a tween, leaning towards the teen years, you worry whether the eldest would be bored or the youngest would not be old enough for the fun. I was glad it turned out that my eldest still enjoyed Legoland as much as before. And this time, our toddler was tall enough to join in many rides and that made the trip even more worthwhile and fun.

2 years ago, we went on a boxing day and all the rides needed to wait as long as 90 minutes! Knowing that each year the causeway will be super jam towards the mid December with many families thronging Legoland, this time we chose to go in early December and we were pleasantly surprised that most of the rides only needed 5 minutes of waiting! We were able to try on most attractions and for some of the thrilled ones, we went on thrice!

Junior Driving School (toddlers) and Driving School (older kids)

When you queue for the Driving School, your kids will be asked to take a picture. This picture is going to show on their Driving License after they “passed” their driving in the driving school! Do not be stressed! There is no test, just pure fun for the children and they get to have their own driving license which comes at a cost.

Boating School

Anything with a steering wheel is fun for my Master 3. What’s more it is about steering a boat on water. This ride requires an adult company with young ones. My elder kids could go on their own. Instead it was me who was afraid to steer a boat all by myself. So, I gladly accompany my little captain on the ride. Didn’t he look so confident on his “virgin voyage” and his use of one hand to steer the wheel? Continue reading

If you are looking for an alternative to staying in Legoland Hotel, and simply want to stay near Legoland, Sanrio Hello Kitty Town or The Little Big Club, then Hotel Jen Puteri Harbour is a top recommendation for you.

Legoland is about a 5 min drive away from the hotel, and next to Hotel Jen are Hello Kitty Town and The Little Big Club.
