Trip to Legoland + Review

SCROLL DOWN TO REVIEW (if you wanna skip my babbling) 
I have to say, there's pretty much nothing exciting going on in my life these few months (All I was doing is assignments and chores ˚ᆺ˚ว) except the trip to Legoland Malaysia.
I went to Legoland Malaysia last month. It's the first time I went outstation with my peeps. So i was extremely excited ! ≧◡≦
We arrived Johor in 5 hours ! Finally, we get to settle down in the hotel. Sadly, there's nothing to eat nearby the hotels, so we have to take a cab to a nearby shopping center to search for food~ Here's our dinner ! \(^ω^\)

The next day, we went to Legoland right after our buffet breakfast !!! (✿◠‿◠)

We have to go through a shopping mall to get to Legoland's entrance. 
(Yes, that is me, taking a luggage. ^.^V)

That's quite a number of people waiting for Legoland to open at 10am. We went there early so we have to wait too~~ Right before Legoland open their gates, their mascots came out to greet us ! (●⌒∇⌒●)

Tada ! A lego thingy !!! There's another cowboy legopeople mascot, but we didn't get to a take a picture with it ~~ (=3=) We put our bags and luggage to the locker so we dont need to drag it with us when we need to take a ride on the roller coaster. 

Information about lockers: 

Small square shaped lockers cost about Rm20 each
Larger lockers (my luggage size *2) RM40 each

There's no keys or cards, we filled in passwords and then the locker will open itself. It's more convenient that way, cause we dont need to take keys or cards with us. 

We went to the furthest part of Legoland first. 

Imaginary section:

It's really pretty, cause most of the decorations in Legoland are made out of Legos !
We were bored waiting for the 4D to open (it opens at 11am) so we walk around imaginary section. 

(picture above) 
This is the place where kids get to built legos [indoor], not ordinary ones. They get to built cars, buildings and etc with legos ! They can also get to built a building on a vibrating piece of lego to see whether their building is secure. (I know, i should take a picture of that vibrating piece of lego)

Yes, i looked happy on that musical fountain (it really plays music when you passed by it). Trust me, it's very hot ! The sun shines directly into your skin !

Land of Adventure:

(picture above)
The first thing we saw when we went inside Land of Adventure. Sadly, that game requires extra charges .... {(>_<)}

(picture above)
Water slide game ! (°∀°) It wasn't open yet .....

As you can see, i didnt really stay at Land of Adventure too long in the morning. Since I only get to play one game there. (shooting game inside an Egyptian palace).
I did get to play the water slide game at late afternoon, about 3-4pm.

Lego City:

Basically, there's a lot of things that you can take picture with in Lego city, but most of the rides are for children (and most of them aren't open yet)

(pic above)
This is where we have our lunch ! (●´ω`●)

Fish and chips ! (My lunch) Rm18.9 -Ala carte

Chicken chop ! (my friend's lunch) Rm22++ -set (comes with soup and drink) 

Haha... Well there's train rides that tour you around Legoland, but the line is too long. So me and my friends use our own strength to walk around Legoland. 

Lego Kingdom:

Lego Kingdom ! this is where we ride "Conquer the Dragon". It's a roller coaster. There's a mini story about this roller coaster, and when you finished riding it, the staff will clap hands and cheer for the people who "conquered the dragon". 

 This is a village theme restaurant. 

 Lego Technic:

This is actually the first place we should go right after entering Legoland, but we figured there'll be less people in the furthest part of Legoland so we went to imaginary instead.

There's more things to play in Lego Technic compared to other sections simply because it's near the entrance. There's dry games and also wet games in this section.

That's me in a boat game. It goes round and round, and i got soaked in this game too O_o 

There's children running around the fountains, soaking themselves while parents hid under shades.

This is Lego technic's indoor. There's a place where they teach children how to built stuff like moving toy cars and such. I am not really sure about the information since i didnt stay here for long. 


I have to say, Miniland is a paradise for photographers. There's so many buildings made out of legos, and all of them are really beautiful ! (づ。◕‿‿◕。)づ

This is near the Taj Mahal. Those tiny people move ! The buses that made out of lego, LRT, trains and cars moves !!! (*≗*)

THAT, my friend. Is KLCC !!! 

Somewhere near entrance:

A souvenir shop with expensive merchandise ! (¬‿¬)



The first thing I will say about Legoland is HOT HOT HOT !!! 
Because it's newly built and there's not much shades there, the trees aren't grown yet so it's like being roasted under the sun. There might be indoors like souvenir shops around, but it's not like you can walk inside a air-con room after you sweat. (you'll get sick). 

Second, most of the games are for kids
Like some of the games in Lego City, they're built in kid's sizes. So i recommend that you go with your family (it's better when you bring along children), cause going with teenage friends (like me) is not really as fun as  going with your family. 

Third, transportation is a huge problem. 
Since Legoland's very own hotel have to be finished at year 2014. We have to take a cab or ride a bus to go to Legoland. It's pretty far away from our hotel. (near bluewave hotel). It took us 30 minutes to reach Legoland and we spent RM27 (one way) on transportation fee. [unless you drive there]

Fourth, there's really not much things to play.
Their waterpark might be finish in year 2013. Most of the games aren't open yet, and most of them are in maintenance status. So, what we mostly do there are taking pictures with pretty decorations. 

Next, GOOD services !
I have to admit, their services are very good !
1) They're very helpful when we asked them for help, eg: me and my friends can't find a cab and asked them for help. They gave us taxi's phone number and asks us to wait outside the shopping center (in front of legoland) cause there's taxi available there.
2) They smile, a lot ! Even if working under the sun for a long time. They manage to smile to us. eg: There's photographers (legoland staff) walking around Miniland and help people to take pictures (with your own camera and also with their cameras). They are really kind to help us when they saw us trying to take a group photo.
3) In "Conquer the Dragon" roller coaster game. They cheered for everyone that have finished riding the roller coaster. In every turn, there's 2 roller coasters. Can you imagine how many times do they have to cheer for ? I was wondering:"Where does their hyperness come from?" •(⌚_⌚•)

Thus, safe !
Most parents are scared that their child will get hurt during rides in amusement parks, but Legoland have  good safety precautions. Cause i personally got hurt in my back bone during my ride in another amusement park's water slide game, so i have fear for those slides as they didn't have things that secure you inside your sit and i got hit at the back when i was a child. Trust me, it still hurts.
Legoland's water game is (refer to Land of adventure section) really safe ! They have something have hold you in your sit so you wont fly out, places you can held on to in front of you and at the sides.

Last but not least, the line goes fast !
I bet everyone had experienced waiting in a game line for a really long time but Legoland rides' lines aren't as slow. In each game we've waited for 15 minutes (the most), there's a lot of people ! There's at least 4 schools that held a one-day-trip in Legoland the day we went there. So there's definitely a huge crowd there and still we waited 15 minutes only. eg: They have about 6 roller coaster in Lego Technic's Extreme ride, and each ride took about 1-2 minutes so the lines goes really fast. 

Overall, i think Legoland is pretty good. It's a real bummer that most of their games aren't opened yet. So it's best to go after year 2014. 

Tip on what to bring: 

1) Pendrive :- After your rides on roller coasters they will snap a picture of you sliding down the slope, you need not to buy the printed copy. They give out free soft copies. 
2) Hats and sunblocks: Trust me, you NEED them. 

Hope my review can help you ~♥
