LEGOLAND Malaysia theme park, the first in Asia, is located in Nusajaya, Johor. Situated on 76 acres of land, the park is the sixth such park to open in the world.
Previous parks are located in Billund, Denmark (1968), Windsor, England (1996), California, USA (1999), Germany (2002), Florida, USA (2005).
LEGOLAND is built with over 40 interactive rides, shows and attractions. One of the main attractions here is Miniland. More than 30 million LEGO bricks were used in the building of the various monuments here including the Petronas Twin Towers, The Merlion Statue, Taj Mahal and others. These well-known buildings were built to a scale of 1:20 where people, trains and airplanes come to life at the touch of a button.
The KL Cluster at LEGOLAND Miniland has recently been upgraded with various new additions to represent the Kuala Lumpur that we are familiar with and love so much.
The KL Cluster initially consisted of the Old Kuala Lumpur Railway Station, Sultan Abdul Samad Building, Maybank Tower, KL Monorail, PETRONAS Twin Towers, and KLCC, among others.
Now, using a total of 3,665,220 LEGO bricks assembled by LEGO model builders in 26,594 hours, various additional monuments and buildings that are the very symbols of Kuala Lumpur have been added.
The new additions are Bukit Bintang, Tabung Haji Tower, National Monument, Petaling Street Arch, Wau Bulan Arch, Sri Mahamariamman Temple, and Sam Kow Tong Temple.
Another latest addition to the Miniland is the Istana Bukit Serene, which is the royal palace and official residence of the Sultan of Johor, located in Johor Bahru, Malaysia.
It is certainly mind boggling to imagine the model designers stacking LEGO elements piece by piece and connecting different pieces together to emulate the actual building design. Hence, whether you’re a LEGO fan or not, you’ll be enthralled by the miniatures built with LEGO bricks at the LEGOLAND Miniland, which depict landmarks not just in Malaysia but also in other Asian countries.
Visitors from Brunei, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Laos, Myanmar, Philippines and Vietnam will get to see their iconic national landmarks in miniature.
The Miniland at LEGOLAND Malaysia is the largest ever built for a new park, and the project took more than three years to complete. Many of the models are animated, so visitors can bring LEGO figures, trains and airplanes to life at the touch of a button.
Other attractions at the park include LEGO City, Land of Adventure, Imagination, LEGO Kingdom and LEGO Technic.
In the theme park, there is also an Observation Tower which is the highest tower in LEGOLAND Malaysia, some 60 meters from the ground. This is also the third LEGOLAND observation tower in the world after Denmark and Germany.
LEGOLAND is a fascinating place to visit for children and adults alike!
