As of 15 September 2012 Britons holidaying in Malaysia will be able to visit Asia's first ever Legoland. Families can enjoy over 40 rides and activities, family-focused interactive shows and a range of shops and food and drink outlets across the 76 acre park. The attractions will be situated in Kota Iskandar in Johor, which is approximately 350km from Malaysia's capital, Kuala Lumpur.
Legoland Windsor is already a booming success amongst British families and prides itself on being an action-packed family-friendly day trip. The Merlin Entertainments Group's addition in Malaysia is suitable for ages 2-12 and allows Britons to enjoy a familiar attraction when journeying to Southeast Asia; your little ones will not feel so far from home. Features of the Malaysia park include Miniland, Lego Kingdom with its huge castle, Lego City's harbour and Imagination, an area dedicated to research and experimentation.
Britons journeying to Malaysia this autumn can benefit from the park, whose completion date is earlier than was anticipated. The general manager of Legoland Malaysia, Siegfried Boerst, announced: "I'm pleased to announce that due to the hard work of all of our contractors we will now be opening Legoland Malaysia ahead of schedule by a number of months."
UK travellers can reach the park by flying to Jahor Bahru airport via Kuala Lumpa. Whilst in the area, visitors can also discover historical architecture, world-class golf courses and shopping malls, enchanting rainforests and idyllic islands.
Over a month before its launch, the park is already proving a hit amongst travellers; more than 35,000 annual passes have been sold thus far. Single-day tickets to Legoland Malaysia are currently on an introductory promotion costing RM96 (£20) for adults and RM70 (£15) for children or seniors. Once this limited offer ends, an adult ticket will be priced at RM140 (£29) and a child ticket RM110 (£23).
