Video: LEGOLAND Malaysia opens to the public for the first timeSubmitted by Nick Sim on Monday, September 17, 2012 07:21
LEGOLAND Malaysia officially debuted to the public on September 15, 2012, becoming the first theme park in the chain to open in Asia.
Based on the same template as existing LEGOLAND parks, LEGOLAND Malaysia is very similar to the recently-opened LEGOLAND Florida. It boasts a total of 7 themed areas and 40 attractions, all aimed at families with children aged 2-12. Owner Merlin Entertainments Group also plans to build a 249-room hotel on the site by early 2014.
YouTube user jy11301010 was on hand to capture video footage of the park on its opening day:
The lands that will make up LEGOLAND Malaysia are all based on areas at existing LEGOLAND parks. Full details of these can be found in Theme Park Tourist's recent report.
