Take a closer look at some of the attractions at Legoland!
Land of Adventure: A daring journey into ancient Lego worlds
Dino Island takes visitors on a boat voyage through a forgotten time. Explorers pass rocky outcrops, man-eating plants and a dinosaur lagoon. A twelve-metre high waterfall is the only way down, and there’s no escape without getting wet.
In Lost Kingdom everyone can play the role of an adventure hero in a laser-blasting hunt for hidden treasure. Almost 1,000 heroes each hour can board a desert off-roader and discover the secrets of the ancient temple. Using laser guns to shoot their way through a labyrinth, they must battle evil mummies and dodge deadly traps.
Beetle Bounce launches children up and down a 15 foot tower, nearly touching the gigantic Lego beetles with every bounce.
Young children create their own adventures in the Pharaoh’s Revenge play area. The miniature world of Miniland turns children into giants and is the centrepiece of every Legoland Park. Asia’s most famous countries, cities and landmarks are recreated on a scale of 1:20, using more than 30 million Lego bricks.
Miniland: Asia in LEGO Bricks
The Miniland at Legoland Malaysia is the largest ever built for a new park, and the project took more than three years to complete. All of the models are animated, so visitors can bring Lego figures, trains and aeroplanes to life at the touch of a button.
Miniland’s 17 highly detailed clusters pay tribute in Lego bricks to 12 different cities and countries across Asia, including Kuala Lumpur, Johor Bahru and Singapore. Visitors from Brunei, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Laos, Myanmar, Philippines and Vietnam will also find their iconic national landmarks in miniature. The Petronas Twin Towers, Taj Mahal and Angkor Wat are among the highlights.
Miniland was designed and built by a team of more than 100 people from around the world. First, a team of Legoland designers photographed buildings, roads and streets across Asia to help familiarise themselves with the landmarks they would be recreating.
There were then two years of 3D design and production before a training studio was established in Malaysia and the models were built. Many were constructed locally at the Legoland Model Shop in Nusa Cemerlang in Johor Bahru. Others were built in the USA, Denmark, England, Germany and the Czech Republic before being carefully transported in cargo containers to Legoland Malaysia for installation.
