Legoland Malaysia Johor Bahru Reviews
Place for family with kids age below 12 Sep 15, 2013
This is like the maybe the 6th Legoland in the world!
Well.. This place, don't go if your are adults! Only go if you have kids whom age 12 and below to go. It's a big disappointment for the adults but a "big yeah" for the kids!
But some activities require the adult to join the kids to accomplish the games!
For food wise, not a wide variety of food available. May just fill up your stomach before entering the theme park. There are few eatery shop before the entrance like KFC, some pastry shop, some Japanese food.
For regular customer, may apply for annual pass which cost around usd80
And a daily pass around usd35. Thus, if you gonna visit legoland more than 3 times per year, may just get the annual pass. It can be done on the spot :)

Fun weekend getaway Sep 22, 2012
For those who have been to Legoland Denmark the first Legoland in Asia might be no match, but it is certainly a place to have some good fun for a day. I went with my friends to Johor Bahru from Kuala Lumpur on a Saturday afternoon by car and after checking into a hotel for the night, drove the next day to the park which is about 15 minutes away on the coastal highway, located in the Iskandar development region in Nusajaya. There is ample parking space outside the park, which is about a 7 minute walk from the entrance.
The queues for the rides were very long when we went there on the second day of opening. The waiting times were between half and hour and one hour and the rides were about 5 minutes or less on average. The park could certainly do with more trees and shade to make the waiting more comfortable as it was a sweaty affair to queue up before every ride.
There are adequate food and drink stops everywhere but everything is overpriced - one station sold burgers for 15ringgit each and another sold slush drinks for 10 ringgit each (expensive by Malaysian standards) Bring your own water to avoid having to drink all that out of necessity after walking around in the tropical heat.
Some of the rides are semi-adult and the rest are for kids. The rollercoasters are not as extreme as other theme parks and are good for two or three screams, which is good enough for my tolerance levels! In fact I enjoyed the Miniland and 4d cinema the most. The 4d cinema was a new experience for me, again rather short at 15 minutes per screening where you get blown over by wind, sprayed with water, and it snows.
The Miniland has models of cities around Asia and some look very impressive when lit up at night. You can spend an hour just marvelling at the details put into the models of Singapore, Thailand, Cambodia and more. They had a fireworks show in the evening just above the Miniland. It was quite an impressive display which lasted about 10 minutes, almost felt like New Year's eve!
Legoland Malaysia is good place to go for the weekend for families with kids. A bit far if you come from Kuala Lumpur, but worth the trip if you want to also hop over to Singapore or just spend some time around Johor.
