Johor Bahru, Malaysia – March 26, 2015
Hi it’s Aurora and Noah here. Back on the island of Koh Samui, Thailand, on the 25th of December, we were gifted a Day Pass, for LegoLand Malaysia. Of course we were exited and all, but we had to wait three months to go. The three months passed and we did all sorts of tours and excursions but we still thought about LegoLand and every few days we asked “How long ‘till Malaysia?” We got there on the 26th of March and we would like to tell you how it was…
We woke up to someone, saying “it’s LEGOLAND Day” and shaking us. We got up, got dressed and ate our hotel’s buffet breakfast. We finished eating and waited about 20 minutes for a cab and got inside. We drove and drove and finally there it was big letters on a hill that read LegoLand. We were so happy, we thanked the driver and went through a small wad of shops and looked up and read LegoLand Malaysia. We got a few pictures and got are ticket and went through the gates. We went on the closest roller coaster and me Noah and Dad went on, and Mom stayed behind “Guarding our bags”. We went on a few times and it was fun, we got off and I realized that that was my first roller coaster ever! I was so happy I survived it!
It was my first roller coaster too (that I remember, mind you,) but I am not afraid of heights like Aurora. I wasn’t as afraid, but being someone who loves these kind of things, I had to comfort my freaked out father. Anyway, Aurora already explained the entrance, and all that, so I’ll continue talking about the Park itself. Lucky for us it was a school day so there weren’t many kids running around and clogging the lines. Well… we were the line, literally. We were always the first in line. The longest line we were in ended about 5 people behind us, and they were a family. We stopped to take a look at a map of the park and decided just to wander around hoping to find a few more good rides. Our second stop was a small rollercoaster, but fun nonetheless. There were no loops or dives but the track tilted 60 degrees, and Aurora actually liked it. Personally I liked it and we went on it 3 times. (And yes, Aurora, spontaneously decided that she likes rollercoasters!)
We went to a star wars section mostly for my brother and almost all the sculptures were made out of Lego. We walked around looking at all these weird Dino things and weird creatures and stuff (and I am talking about Jar Jar Binks and other monster objects). We went into the “Buy me” section and Noah took about 30 minutes trying to figure out if he was going to buy his set. I finally took it off the shelf shoved it in his hands and convinced him to buy it. After we went outside and looked and saw a horse thing we wanted to try it out until we found out that it was or kids like 3-4. There was 2 kids like maybe 4 years old and one of them had shades on and was bobbin’ his head up and down. The second had a small afro and was not holding the handles. We walked away from them and did a few more rides…
The next thing we did was going to the “Mini World.” It was a bunch of real life buildings made out of Lego. Yes things like the twin towers in Kuala Lumpur and Ankor Wat in Cambodia. There were a few more thing we recognized but hadn’t been to, like the Old Train station in Kuala Lumpur and the Great Wall of China. Even I was impressed with the moving cars and double decker busses, and it blew my mind when boats anchored at the harbor and Lego planes started up their propellers. There was even a level of humor when I stopped at two buttons, and my curiosity got the better of me. The first button started up a Lego fountain and the second one… well Aurora pushed that one and got a blast of water right to the stomach.
After we went to a small shop with a small section where you build own Lego mini figure. I made 2 and Noah made 1 because it was a pack of three. We had some fun there, and headed off to “Pick a Brick” located in the same store. It was more or less a little reserved area where you take a bag and fill it with Lego bricks of your choice, and they charged us on how heavy it was. We went up the aisle and down the aisle, and finally decided what bricks we wanted. Noah and I each got about 100 grams of Lego and it took approximately 30 minutes to decide which bricks to get. Our favorite bricks were bright yellow and had little smiley faces. We loved our trip to LegoLand but alas, we still had to leave, we took some last pictures and walked out of the gates…
Because there were so few people at the park there were no line ups letting us ride most rides 2 or 3 times in a row. No waiting! We had so much fun at LEGOLAND.
