LEGOLAND has 76 acres of adventure, 24acres short of the woods where Christopher Robin plays! Lol..
I was really fortunate to be given an exclusive (media) preview of the 6th LEGOLAND Park to be built and the very first in Asia on 1st September 2012, just 2 weeks before its official opening on 15 September 2012! Featuring 7 themed areas with more than 40 interactive rides,shows and attractions, it is definitely the ultimate place to push the boundaries of your imagination and enjoy the LEGO experiences.
Located in Nusajaya, Johor, the park is just 10 minutes away from the Tuas Checkpoint, making it a great weekend gateway for your kids and family! We had no difficulty in finding the park without any navigation system as the road signage leading to LEGOLAND were all in place! Just follow them and you will reach your destination!
As this is a newly developed area, the land looks quite barren except for the few young tress that were planted, the going construction and the park itself.
The LEGOLAND sign far far away as we were driving into the carpark. Can you spot it?
The big open air carpark and the white tentage on the left that marks the path to the ticket counters and entrance of the park. The carpark is considered big but I guess it may still not be enough to cater to the crowds when the park opens! Also, it is not fully laid with tarmac. The wheels of your cars will sit on top of tiny stones while you enjoy yourself in the park 😛 As it is not sheltered, it was a hot and long walk to the tentage.
Finally reached the tentage under the sorching sun!
And it was a long sheltered walk to the ticket counters. How I wished they had a buggy to zip us to the entrance and conserve those energy for exploring the park! ;P
Finally reached the ticket counters to collect our admission tickets!
Our admission tickets collected with our photographic ID which we were told to bring along with sunblock, hats/caps for young children, comfortable footwear, an umbrella just in case. I would say they are a must to bring! Along with plenty of water!
Finally time to enter the park but not before taking a picture with the iconic entrance with our park map and tickets!
More about the park in the next post!
