The names of the themed lands that will form part of LEGOLAND Malaysia when it opens in December 2012 have been revealed, along with details of a number of the park's rides.
LEGOLAND Malaysia is set be very similar to the existing LEGOLAND parks around the world, with owner Merlin Entertainments Group using a near-identical template to the one it used for the recently-opened LEGOLAND Florida. A report in the New Straits Times claims that the park will cost around $230 million to construct, and will feature 7 themed areas and 40 attractions.
The lands that will make up LEGOLAND Malaysia will be:
- The Beginning - an entrance area hosting a number of retail outlets.
- LEGO City - home to versions of the popular Boating School and Driving School rides, and a version of the Fire Academy attraction seen at other LEGOLAND parks.
- Miniland - will feature LEGO recreations of famous landmarks.
- Land of Adventure - home to exotic rides featuring a pharaoh's stolen treasure and an island populated with dinosaurs.
- Imagination - an area in which children can build and play with LEGO.
- LEGO Kingdom - will house a version of the Dragon roller coaster seen at LEGOLAND Windsor, as well as the Royal Joust attraction.
- LEGO Technic - will host another roller coaster and the Aquazone Wave Racer water ride.
