Legoland, Johor Bahru: Most Exciting Place on the Planet

Legoland, Johor Bahru: Most Exciting Place on the Planet

BPDGTravels had a great time at Legoland! Take your kids to driving school, teach them to operate boats and compete with them high up in the clouds on airplanes.

This was our first visit to Legoland Malaysia on a hazy Monday morning since its official opening in September 2012. Denver and Gladys have always been probing us to go to the theme park and we are finally fulfilling their wishes.

We are Ready to Play!


To avoid the long queues, it is advised to visit Legoland during the weekdays and to avoid going during the school holidays. 🙂 We were able to try out many rides within the day and even went for second rounds.

LEGO CITY – Driving School. The children queued up and went for their crash course on how to drive safely. Eager parents waited outside with their cameras as the young ones hopped into their vehicles and were ready to go!

Being an amateur, there were a few ‘accidents’ on the road. Denver was able to keep to his lane and observe the traffic rules to complete his circuit. Gladys however had a few hiccups on the road but she too managed to finish her rounds.


Boating School – After learning how to drive cars, it was time to learn how to operate boats. We had a bumpy ride in the water, banging onto other boats and had a difficult time making turns. It was definitely a dizzy experience for me as the children were the captains!


Lego City Airport – It was a breezing experience in the sky with our cute pilots! The kids were able to choose their favourite airplanes and compete for who can fly the highest!


Rescue Academy – Harmless as it may seem, Rescue Academy was our worst nightmare! As the name implies, our mission was to put out the fire in the shortest time possible. Four fire trucks were lined up at the starting point and ‘firemen’ had to maneuver the lever quickly to ‘move’ the trucks towards the ‘house of fire’. This was followed by a series of fire-fighting before we were able to make our way back to the starting point. The fastest fire truck wins and we were very EXHAUSTED after all the hard work!


Land of Adventure: Lost Kingdom – This place reminds me of Buzz Lightyear Astro Blaster in Disneyland, only on a much smaller scale. It is another round of laser blasting hunt for lost treasure.


Imagination: Observation Tower – The best place to get a bird’s eye view of the entire Legoland. Unfortunately, the panorama view was very much discounted by the haze.


Lego Studios. With a much smaller crowd that day, we were able to catch all the 4D shows! We went in and out of the studio until Gladys started to get really impatient as she wanted to go and play!


Kids Power Tower – This is a really cool ride and we loved it! After a strenuous exercise at the Rescue Academy, my hands were pretty weary already. At the Power Tower, our arm strength was once again put to the test by pulling the cable with all our might to reach the top and then releasing it for a drop fall. Whooo Hooo!


Build & Test – This was another favourite area for our kiddos. We spent nearly an hour here building our fastest lego car model. Each model was placed at the starting line and challenged with the other cars for the fastest time to reach the finishing line.


Gladys prayed hard for her car model to win and it did! Her car was so well-constructed that she beat all her competitors, winning the best timing for completing the race track in less than 4 seconds!

The kids love their creations so much that they were very disappointed to learn that they have to return the wheels upon exiting. Nevertheless, it was a fun experience!

Lego Kingdom: Merlin’s Challenge – High speed carousel that gave us a dizzy spell. The children still enjoyed it very much.


Royal Joust – Our little knights hopped onto their horses and saddled their way through the kingdom.


The Dragon & Dragon’s Apprentice – The Dragon was too daunting for us looking at the amount of twists and turns. It will be thrilling if you are going for excitement. We decided to go for a milder rollercoaster ride at the Dragon’s Apprentice instead and even that made us scream out hearts out!


The Forestmen’s Hideout – This was a nice treetop playground for the children. Mums and dads can take a little break while watching their kids play.


Miniland – I’m always been very intrigued by how creators were able to piece every single Lego block into masterpieces. Although we were in Malaysia, familiar sights like Riverside Point, Merlion and Fullerton Hotel can be found anywhere here. This was a great place to take family photos together.



Lego Technic – Lego Academy. Denver and Gladys were extremely disappointed when we were late in signing up for the activities at Lego Academy. All sessions were fully booked and we had to try our luck another time.


Project X – This was another thrilling, crazy ride that we gladly gave a miss.


Aquazone Wave Racers – There was a long queue at the Wave Racers and we skipped this ride as it is going to make us wet. To avoid further disappointment, children triggered the water jets from outside to attack the participants. Remember to bring an extra set of clothing if you are visiting Legoland.


Technic Twister – This was another spinning ride that the kids had fun being in control. The more they turned the wheel, the crazier it spins! Luckily I was not sitting in the same saucer.

The deteriorating hazy condition forced us to end our trip early. Before we leave, we managed to cover most of the rides and catch all the 4D shows. The kids would love to be back again and when that day comes, they will be wiser to decide which activities to go to first.
