this is our legoland day. 😀 we already had the hotel arrange our tickets and transportation to the legoland park. since we only had a day, we were not able to check out the water park.
we first had our breakfast at the hotel’s restaurant which is already included with the room accommodation price. it was a buffet that served mostly malaysian food, but there was also a little bit of indian and western choices available. i really liked the pink guava juice that was one of the choices for the drinks.

after breakfast, we lounged around the hotel lobby, took some pictures and then waited at the business lounge for our driver who will take us to legoland.
the ride to legoland was around 30 minutes. we were dropped off at the mall of medini which has several shops and restaurants you can eat at if you do not want to eat inside legoland. you will walk the stretch of the mall before you get to legoland’s main entrance.
which way to legoland?
welcome to legoland malaysia!
at the left side of the picture is the legoland hotel which features themed rooms. we hope that we can stay here the next time and try out the water park. 🙂
at the entrance and at several parts of the park, there are photographers who will take a photo of you with a great background (like the legoland entrance signage) or a computer generated one. they will then give you a bracelet which has a barcode, and you can claim you pictures later on, if you like, at the shops. they are also kind enough to take shots using your own camera just like what we have.

it was very hot in legoland. the trees are still small and there are some area with shade, but mostly it was hot concrete. make sure that you use sunblock and bring caps, umbrellas, sunglasses, fans and of course lots of water.
we went around the park and tried out several rides. we did the junior driving school, boating school, and the legoland express. my son also spent some time playing at the shipyard. since we went on a weekday, there were just a few people and queues almost do not exist.

after this,we had our lunch at the market restaurant. they have a “cafeteria” kind of service wherein you will choose the food set that you want, and then you pay for it and then bring it to your table. hubby and i had the chicken meal, while matteo had chicken nuggets. most of the meals come with a fruit cup and a drink.

we then went to the lego city airport. too bad that the dino island ride was under maintenance that day so we were not able to try it out. we spent sometime inside the duplo playtown where my son had a blast building things with the various bricks, running around, and playing with the slides.

to cool off from the heat, we watched two 4d shows at the lego studio — lego racers and clutch powers. it was a fun experience for my son, especially when we were getting showers. 😉 we also tried out the observation tower which gives you a bird’s eyeview of the whole park. from the top, you could see that there are still plenty of areas for development which could mean more areas to explore in the future.

hubby and son enjoyed building towers and cars which they could test at the build and test area. 😀

since there were only the three of us touring the park, hubby and i rode the rollercoaster — the dragon — separately. it was kind of unique in a sense that you first go through a sort of story before being plunged into the excitement of the roller coaster. the ride was kind of short that i had to go through it again. good thing there were no lines. 🙂

we had some snacks at the knight’s feast and then we proceeded in touring the world at miniland. from the website:
See the world in an amazing new way in MINILAND, the centrepiece of every LEGOLAND®Park. It took three years and more than 30 million LEGO® bricks to recreate some of Asia’s best known landmarks in detailed miniature.Stroll through famous scenes from 17 Asian countries, including the Petronas Twin Towers, the Merlion Statue and the Taj Mahal.The whole of MINILAND is animated, and guests – big and small – can bring the models to life at the touch of a button.

after this, we went to the big shop to get some shirts, magnets, keychains and a lego figure ice tray. 🙂
we were picked up by our driver at around 6:30 pm. we went back to the hotel and just bought some take out food from the mall for our dinner. that ends our tiring but super fun day at legoland.
