The nine different habitat zones are namely Shoaling Ring, Malaysia Rainforest, Rock Pool, Seahorses, Tropical Stingray Bay, Coral Reef, Jellies, Ocean View and Ocean Tunnel.

Visitors can expect to be fully surrounded by schools of fishes at the Shoaling Ring exhibit, feast their eyes on thousands of marine creatures – from cute seahorses to humongous sharks – at Ocean View and Ocean Tunnel, and get up close with sea stars and urchins at the Rock Pool.

Walking through every zone creates an all-round learning experience that brings visitors on a voyage to the depth of the oceans.

Unique to SEA LIFE Aquarium at Legoland Malaysia, the Malaysia Rainforest habitat zone is specially designed to educate visitors and tourists on Malaysia’s local flora and fauna. One highlight of this zone is the iconic Rafflesia flower, the world’s largest and smelliest flower.

Special behind-the-scenes tour of SEA LIFE Malaysia

A special behind-the-scenes tour is available for visitors to learn about the importance of the oceans’ inhabitants and understand the everyday work of the passionate aquatic staff at SEA LIFE Malaysia. Visitors can find out how animal healthcare and food preparation are conducted for all sea creatures in the aquarium.

Quirky LEGO exhibits of sea creatures and mini-figures

Staying true to the title of Legoland Malaysia Resort, interesting LEGO sea creatures and LEGO mini-figures will be incorporated within the SEA LIFE aquarium.

Since its opening in 2012, Legoland Malaysia has consistently added new attractions such as Star Wars Miniland and the recently launched virtual reality roller coaster to lure more tourists.

Legoland Malaysia expects this new marine life attraction, a joint venture with the world’s largest global aquarium entrepreneur, Merlin Entertainments, to further enhance visitors’ experience and bolster overall visitor numbers.
