Travelling to Malaysia and looking for the ultimate family fun? Want a fun day trip from Singapore? Love Lego and water parks?
Then you’d be crazy not to pay Legoland at Malaysia a visit!
Whether you’re travelling with adults or a family, there is much on offer at this Legoland Johor Bahru. It’s located in Malaysia but in very convenient proximity to Singapore.
We have visited several times with the latest visit being in 2024. My middle son, in particular, is a huge Lego fan and has a bucket list made up of all the Legolands in the world! It is fun for everyone though whether you are a Lego fan or not.
Initially, we wondered what Legoland would be like. Is it like an amusement park? Disneyland? How does the Lego theme work?
Legoland Malaysia is much more than an amusement park full of rides. While there are fun and thrilling rides in Legoland Malaysia, there is also Lego basically everywhere. There are Lego structures and people everywhere and these are quite impressive. It’s fun spotting new ones as you walk around.
There are also other Lego-themed Legoland Malaysia attractions and activities like 4D movies and Lego building workshops.
But above all, Legoland in Malaysia is a well laid out, beautifully constructed theme park that is lots of fun!
Below, I share my Legoland Malaysia review blog with everything you need to know about the park (including Legoland Water Park Johor Bahru and SEA LIFE Malaysia), as well as tips for visiting including when to visit, how many days, visiting Legoland Johor Bahru Malaysia with kids, where to stay and travel from Singapore to Legoland Malaysia (as well as from Kuala Lumpur and Johor Bahru).
You can also watch a quick video which shows you a great overview of visiting Legoland Malaysia from the theme park and water park to the hotel and more.
By the end of this Legoland Malaysia theme park review, you are going to be very excited for your visit! Let’s dive in to this Legoland blog.

Legoland Malaysia Review
In this Legoland theme park review, I will cover all of the three parts to a Legoland Malaysia tour. The main park itself is where you find the Legoland Malaysia rides, Lego activities, 4D movies, shows and more.
Then there is the Water Park with water slides, pools, water playgrounds and everything water. Finally, you can also visit SEA LIFE Malaysia which is a Lego themed aquarium.
Which parks you visit is totally up to you. It’s cheaper to visit one or there are good value combo tickets where you can visit all three (more about pricing below or click here to see discounted ticket prices).
I split up the Legoland theme park Malaysia review below by each of these parks. I also discuss the Legoland Malaysia Hotel. This place is great and the perfect accompaniment to your Legoland theme park visit.
This review is based on my experiences of visiting here multiple times with kids aged from 3 years old to 11 years old.
Legoland Malaysia Theme Park Review
When visiting Legoland in Johor Bahru, know that the main theme park is definitely the best. This is where you will spend your time walking through different themed lands, going on Legoland rides Malaysia and enjoying everything possible in Lego.
There are seven themed lands and I walk you through each of them in the order you will find them if you walk clockwise around the park. Each land is unique and quite compact and they all have eating and shopping options with many playgrounds around the park as well.
There is also a part at the beginning where you will find lockers to store any of your items, a cafe and shops. You can also hire strollers here.
While there is a strong focus on family activities, a Legoland Malaysia review for adults is that this park is lots of fun even without kids! However, you’ll probably find you get around the park faster and have time to easily visit the Water Park as well in less than a day unless you visit at an ultra busy time.
Whereas if you have kids, on a one day visit, I would just concentrate on this park.
Quite a few activities in Legoland Malaysia are really just for kids, and there aren’t any truly thrilling, huge rides that scare adults.
I highly recommend you find a map of the park before visiting online and have it on your phone. We could not find a paper map in the park and the one I initially found online was out of date which meant we tried to find rides that no longer existed. We wasted a lot of time not having a proper map.
At the time of publishing, this link will take you to a map.
This first land has some great attractions for kids and adults including the chance to cool down (and get wet) at the Aquazone Wave Racers. There’s also a spinning ride, like a tea cup ride but you can’t spin yourself, Technic Twister.
This is also the place for budding robot builders with specialist robot workshops.
However, the best bit is a cool Legoland Malaysia roller coaster that combines a real roller coaster with virtual reality. As you go around the tracks, traditional roller coaster style, you wear a VR mask so it feels like you are racing Lego cars. It’s very cool! While designed with kids in mind, it is quite thrilling.
Sadly, I am still disappointed I didn’t get to experience the VR part of this ride. We visited on a wet day, so initially, just the roller coaster was running without the VR headsets.
Then, later, when we went back, we lined up again and I found out that even though my youngest son (6) was big enough to go on the ride, they wouldn’t let him wear a VR headset OR the parent sitting next to him. This seemed stupid to me. Either he was big enough to go on the ride or not. We were both very disappointed.
My older kid (11) was allowed, and he absolutely loved it. He is quite fearful of rides, so I had to convince him to try. Then he did it two more times!
This area also has Rebuild The World, a lego play area. Unfortunately, we didn’t get to see inside. It was the one area we missed out on. They said it was too full and wouldn’t tell us when we could go in.
This is the one real complaint I have about this theme park as there should be some type of system so you can enter at some point. They wouldn’t let us line up, when a group of ten people left, they still said it was full… We came back later and one group got let in and then it was full again…
What is the point of having it if you can’t go in?
Next up is Lego Kingdoms where you will find dragons, castles and knights! There are also some great rides including two roller coasters – a big one and a young kid friendly one.
There are also some great rides for little kids and a big play area.
We went on the smaller roller coaster many times. So much fun!
The Imagination land is less about Legoland Malaysia theme park rides and more about having fun with Lego and enjoying a 4D cinema which currently shows 5 different movies either hourly or half hourly depending if it’s the weekend or not. They are lots of fun. We even had snow falling in one show when we visited.
We particularly loved the Lego City Officer in Pursuit show, so if this is on when you are there, make sure you see it 🙂
Between this and the Lego activities at the Build and Test area, this is a great area to visit if it starts raining. The Build and Test area is great for kids as you can build cars and race them or buildings and test to see if they can withstand an earthquake. Honestly, it’s fun for adults too.
It can fill up though.
For toddlers and preschoolers, there is a child-sized city for kids and a train to ride.
Adults will enjoy the Observation Tower which is a rotating, indoor platform that takes you from the ground to high up views over all the theme park including the Legoland Water Park.
It’s easy to spend a lot of time in this area.
Lego Ninjago World
The newest land in the Legoland park Malaysia, Lego Ninjago World is small but lots of fun.
It centres on the Lego Ninjago ride which uses cutting edge technology to deliver this 4D ride where you will defeat the Grand Devourer with just your hands! It’s quite amazing actually and definitely a must experience on your Legoland Malaysia trip.
There’s also a great live show based on Ninjago in Lego City. Read more about it below.
Land of Adventure
This land actually has two different areas – you can discover the Egyptian area or go to Dino Island Legoland Malaysia.
At Dino Island, there is a fun, splash ride – one where you ride in a cart up a volcano and past Lego dinosaurs before crashing back down with a huge splash. Expect to get wet. Very wet.
We did this ride when it was already raining a little so we didn’t think it would matter to get wet. However, I was totally drenched! Luckily, I dried pretty quick.
The Egyptian area is mostly about the fun Lost Kingdom Adventure ride where you have a haunted house like experience as you shoot lasers and look for treasure. There is also a playground for younger kids where they can shoot foam balls.
On our most recent visit, we did find the Lost Kingdom Adventure ride a little tired and not working that well. Hopefully, it is part of the big planned upgrade happening this year.
Lego City is the final land for rides at Legoland theme park Johor and there are many Legoland Malaysia activities here especially for kids.
For a start, kids will love going to “driving school” – ours did! There are two. One for 3 – 5 year olds and one for 6-13 year olds. The good news is that this is included and you don’t need to book ahead (like we had to in Legoland Billund).
This attraction does take awhile though. The line is s l o w. We visited on a wet day without many people when we did this and didn’t have to line up for anything. But the line here, although it was only small, took about 40 minutes. The experience itself, another 20 minutes.
You can also learn how to perform fire rescues by taking a fire engine to put out a fire or go to boating school.
It doesn’t end there as you can fly a plane from the Lego City Airport or take a train ride around the park.
This is also where you will find a big stage with live shows. Currently it’s a Ninjago themed show with puppets. It’s really good! It only ran once a day when we were there, so make sure you get the time and turn up 🙂
Finally, in the centre of the park is Miniland. This is where you will find a world created in Lego miniatures. At Legoland Johor Malaysia, it focuses on Malaysia and Asia and you will find Lego replicas of famous landmarks from across the continent.
You can see the Taj Mahal, Tiananmen Square, Singapore, Angkor Wat, Kuala Lumpur International Airport and more. You can also read some fascinating facts like that it took over 100 people working on this Miniland from across the world a year and a half to build this miniland. Now, there’s a job to aim for!
I must admit that before taking a trip to Legoland Malaysia, I thought that the miniland would be boring. But it’s really not at all, and I was really excited to get home and write this theme park Legoland review! The attention to detail is amazing and I could stare at some of these scenes for a long time, especially the moving parts.
HOWEVER, on our most recent visit, Miniland was undergoing a major renovation. While it was still open with things to see, it definitely wasn’t at its best and some parts, like the airport, had been removed. I look forward to seeing how awesome it looks when it’s all finished.
All in all, my Legoland Johor review found a very fun, well presented and top class theme park that I have been happy to return to multiple times over the years.
One of the best parts is that we have barely had to line up any time with have visited. Our most recent visit was two days – one of which coincided with a public holiday AND the start of school holidays in both Malaysia and Singapore. We still didn’t line up much, but did hit problems with the Lego building areas as mentioned above.
The other day we visited rained for the first few hours. This was a little frustrating as we couldn’t tell what was open or not in the park, but we did find plenty still to do. The huge upside was that barely anyone was there and everything opened up throughout the day.
Some rides we enjoyed during the rain was the Lego City driving school (this still had a slow line though), the smaller roller coaster in Lego Kingdoms and the rides in Land of Adventure. Of course, this is the perfect time to head to one of the 4D shows or Lego building experiences as well.
The downside of not many people is that the park is lacking some of the atmosphere we experienced at other Legolands, but I’d take easy access to rides any day over more people.
I do wish this park had an app. I am used to theme parks having them now, so I was surprised Legoland Malaysia does not. It would have been really handy to find out what time shows are on and which rides were open in the rain. Failing that, a map with show times would have been super handy too. I struggle to understand why they have got rid of anything that tells you what’s happening in the park.
However, these are small issues compared to how much fun this park is. I highly recommend that you visit this part of the theme park while visiting Johor Bahru Legoland.
Legoland Water Park Malaysia Review
Right next door to the main Legoland theme park Johor Bahru is the Water Park. It is very easy to visit these two attractions on the same visit. Reading Legoland water park reviews ahead of our visit, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it was a massive hit with our family and we all had a great time!
But more importantly, our Legoland Malaysia Water Park review found a super fun theme park which is perfect for cooling down after a visit to the theme park as it’s very hot.
There are many water slides, a massive water playground, a toddler water play area, a wave pool, a lazy river ride (where you can build your own Lego raft) and some activity areas like a table where you can build a boat and then race it.
The park is well designed. When our kids were little, we loved that one of us adults could stay with the kids building boats and racing them right at the bottom of the water slides, so the other could try them out.
Trying to build a raft to take on the lazy river was lots of fun although seemingly impossible for us! There are lots of big pieces of Lego floating around that you can join together. Some people had made some great ones!
Or you can use a tube instead which is much easier. I preferred floating round in a life jacket though. It’s hot here and I’d rather be in the water than above it 🙂
I did find just a couple of the lego bricks can make it a little easier to float around.
The water playgrounds are great for younger kids and there’s some “Imagination Stations” where the kids can play with water and Lego too.
The big Legoland Malaysia swimming pool with waves is fun but the waves are on the small side. Our young kids were able to wear life jackets and float around quite happily in there. When my kids got older, it got a little boring.
Like the theme park next door, this park is focused on family fun so it’s not for the adrenaline junkies. However, there’s plenty that adults can enjoy and I would still be happy to visit without kids. We (along with kids) enjoyed the water slides. Now my kids are 6 and 11 years old, they went on every single water slide and loved them.
All in all, our Water Park Legoland Malaysia review found a fun, but low key, water park. What it lacks in super thrilling rides, it makes up for in fun Lego themed activities. It is definitely worth visiting here as well as the main theme park if you have enough time (see more below about how long you need to visit Legoland Malaysia!).
You don’t need more than half a day, but if you love pools and water slides, it’s fun!
We found visiting here after 4pm to be the best as most people were packing up and going at 5pm. It was easy to go on the water slides as much as we wanted, especially in the last half hour.
SEA LIFE Malaysia Review
SEA LIFE Malaysia is the newest addition in this Legoland Malaysia blog having only opened in 2019. It’s basically an aquarium with 11 different zones (based on different habitats) to pass through. It has a very loose Lego theming.
We finally got to visit it on my last visit so I added it to this Legoland review Malaysia. This way, you know exactly what to see in Legoland Malaysia and can make a decision if this aquarium is right for you.
In SEA LIFE Malaysia, you can watch stingrays, jellyfish, seahorses, walk through a 180° ocean tunnel looking out for sharks or experience a Malaysian rainforest. There is a touch pool with starfish and sea cucumbers. You can see baby sharks up close here too.
Our Sea Life Legoland Malaysia review found a beautifully presented centre, and there are staff along the way to answer any questions and tell you what you are seeing. There are also regular presentations.
The main part my kids loved was where you can colour in a fish or other sea creature and submit it. It then gets added to a big screen of other sealife kids have made projected on a wall.
We actually did a similar activity to this at Lego House in Billund, Denmark, although there, we were able to make the fish out of Lego!
This is the only part of the aquarium where we spent more than a few minutes and we were done all up in about 20 minutes.
This aquarium is small, and it’s only very loosely Lego themed. We enjoyed touching the starfish and learning more about them, and it does stand out among aquariums thanks to the readily available staff.
BUT, we, like most people, come to Legoland for Legoland! And it felt a bit like we were wasting our time here when we could be at the main theme park or the water park. We didn’t find anything wrong in out Legoland Sea Life Malaysia review. It’s just not as cool as your other options.
Other reviews of SEA LIFE Malaysia are generally good except for complaints that it’s small for the price. We have to agree.
If you buy a discounted combo ticket, it’s included but a standalone ticket is not worth it, in my opinion. We had the combo ticket, or I wouldn’t have come here.
Whether to visit or not really depends on if you have enough time. Aquariums are in many cities – including the amazing SEA Aquarium in Singapore or the Aquaria Kuala Lumpur – so if you are short on time, I would stick to the main theme park and water park instead which are more unique to Legoland.
Unfortunately, at the time of our visit, the Ocean Tank and Ocean Tunnel Area are closed indefinitely. I hope they open soon as it really needs something to add some WOW factor.

Legoland Malaysia Promotion And Ticket Price
If my Legoland JB review has you all set to, you are probably wondering what the Legoland Malaysia ticket price is…
Well this does vary depending on how many parks you want to visit and if you purchase the ticket beforehand online through a Legoland Malaysia ticket promotion or pay at the gate. There are also discounts for kids and a cheaper 2-day rate.
At the time of publishing, the Legoland Malaysia price if you buy direct or at the gate is RM249 to just visit the main theme park for the day for an adult or the Legoland Johor Bahru ticket price is RM399 to visit all parks in a day.
The cheapest way to get a ticket for Legoland Malaysia is to buy a Legoland Malaysia promo ticket from Klook before you visit.
At the time of publishing, instead of the regular Legoland Malaysia entrance fee of RM249 for one park or RM399 for the Legoland Malaysia combo ticket, via this Legoland Malaysia promotion 2024, you will pay only RM205 for the main park or RM325 for the combo ticket.
This is a big saving and I recommend you definitely buy your tickets via Klook by clicking here via this Legoland Malaysia ticket promotion 2024. This is the best way to get cheap Legoland Malaysia tickets.
We always use Klook for all our activities and tours in Malaysia when we can and they are 100% reliable, trustworthy and save us a lot of money.
If you are Malaysian, there are cheaper prices available to you – Klook still beats the prices you can find direct at Legoland though. Just make sure you book the price on Klook for a MyKad holder.
On Klook, you can also buy tickets for just the Water Park or SEA LIFE or purchase a 2 day combo ticket.
The two day combo ticket is the best value and not available through Legoland directly so make sure you book on Klook.
We absolutely loved having the two day combo ticket. We got to really enjoy the park. The huge upside of the combo ticket is that you can also exit and re-enter parks which you can’t with a single park pass.
This meant we went to the theme park and the water park on both days and could come out for lunch or to take a time-out in our hotel.
There were also some extra special options but these have not been available (yet) since the pandemic. So there are currently no fast pass options. We have never needed one at this park anyway as it has never had many lines when we have visited.
Legoland Malaysia Food
You don’t have to worry about going hungry – there are plenty of restaurants in Legoland Malaysia as well as food carts scattered around the park. However, most of it is fried and junk food. If you have a combo ticket, you are allowed to leave the park and there are eating options just outside if you would like more options. However, be aware that if you have a one day ticket you will not be able to leave to eat and then come back in again.
Legoland Malaysia restaurant prices are a little crazy. It cost about RM120 for me to eat at a burger place with my two kids. The servings were big though, and we could have spent less had we realised this. It was like we had suddenly entered the US with the huge burgers. Unfortunately, it also tasted disgusting and we ate outside the park the next day.
If you don’t want to pay for overpriced food, you could bring some snacks of your own with you.
Legoland Malaysia Shop
If you love Lego, this is a great place to buy some! Or a souvenir Legoland Malaysia item.
There are many shops throughout the park as well as a big one at the entrance/exit and you won’t have any problems finding something/many things to buy! There’s some great Lego here which makes the perfect souvenir.
There are also shops in the Legoland Hotel, Water Park and SEA LIFE.
Legoland Malaysia With Kids
Legoland Malaysia is seriously made for families and it’s perfect for kids – there’s plenty to do for kids who are over the age of 5, and there are some things to do at Legoland Malaysia for toddlers as well.
However as someone with young kids, I know how much you can obsess over visiting big theme parks like Legoland Malaysia. We thought long and hard before visiting Legoland Malaysia and, in fact, decided against visiting on our first visit to Johor Bahru when our kids were 1 and 2.
I think this was the right decision when they were that young. On the upside, kids under 3 are free (except there is a mandatory swim nappy fee at the Water Park), but on the downside there are height restrictions and it’s going to be limited what young toddlers and babies can do.
There was a pamphlet available of activities specifically for two year olds, and it is quite long thanks to there being many play areas and Lego tables by rides for younger siblings. I would not hesitate to take a 1 or 2 year old had I had older kids as well, but with just little ones, I am glad we waited for the next visit.
Legoland Malaysia rides height limit obviously varies based on the ride. If your kid is over 105cm then they are fine and can go on everything. Our 5 year old went on everything and loved it.
Many rides have a height restriction varying from 80 – 105cm. I saw a few kids under 105cm miss out on rides and be very upset. The staff are great at measuring anyone remotely close to the height requirement, so don’t think you can sneak your kid on.
There is often a second height requirement where your kid can go on, but needs an adult to go with them.
If you’re wondering how big is Legoland Malaysia, then the answer is: Big! There is a lot of walking at the main theme park so for younger kids, take a stroller or hire one there. We hired one for our three year old who was a runner (as in he liked to run away from us regularly so this made life easier!) and he fit fine. There is a lot of stroller parking.
On one of our visits, I was 19 weeks pregnant which really cut back what I could do.
The Water Park is great for kids of all ages with toddlers having their own play area. They can easily float in the lazy river or use the wave pool with parents.
If your kids are older, then there’s no need to hesitate at all. I’m sure they will love Legoland Malaysia. If they are teens who want high action rides then there may be an issue, but even teens can love the Lego activities.
All in all, I highly recommend this park for families. It’s fantastic. The only reason to think twice is if all your kids are under 3 and you know you will get other opportunities to visit.

When To Visit Legoland Malaysia?
Weather-wise, Johor Bahru has a warm and wet tropical climate that’s similar to Singapore’s and there is little difference in the weather from month to month. That does mean that there can be showers or downpours at any time, and it’s a good idea to prepare for both rain and shine (bring both the sunscreen and wet weather gear) for your day at Legoland Malaysia.
I recommend looking up Malaysian and Singapore school holidays and avoiding them to have the least people are the park. However, our last visit was in April in Easter holidays for Australians, but it was also the start of Eid celebrations, a long weekend and start of school holidays in Malaysia and Singapore! But it was still fine crowd wise.
Our previous visit had been mid January and the parks were blissfully empty. We could basically stay on the rides as long as we wanted. At this time of year, we went on both a weekday and a weekend. The weekend had more people but the lines were still basically non existent.
How Many Days To Visit?
You need one day to visit the main park. You could squeeze in the Water Park or SEA LIFE too, particularly if you are just adults and will skip a lot of the attractions.
We arrived at the Water Park at 4pm on our first day and were able to do everything easily in two hours there, and it was nice to cool down at the end of a busy day at the theme park.
However, we skipped some of the activities at the main theme park to do this (which we did the next day).
If you try to do it all in one day, you will be rushed, so the 2 day pass can be a much more relaxed option to take.
The combo tickets are great because you can go back and forth between the parks or exit and go eat and come back. If you buy just a one day ticket for one park, you can’t exit at all so this is something else to consider too.
Where Is Legoland Malaysia?
Legoland Malaysia is located just outside of Johor Bahru about a 25 minute drive from the centre of Johor Bahru (JB) or an hour from the centre of Singapore depending on traffic and how busy the border area is. You can see the exact Legoland Malaysia location on the map below.
It is easy to travel Legoland Malaysia and below we have exact information about getting from JB to Legoland, exactly how to get to Legoland Malaysia from Singapore as well as how to go to Legoland Malaysia from Kuala Lumpur.
Note that there is sometimes confusion about where Legoland is located – there is no Legoland in Kuala Lumpur. If you’re searching for Legoland Kuala Lumpur, know that you will have to travel to Johor Bharu to visit Legoland. The best way to get from Kuala Lumpur to Johor Bharu is to take a private taxi, or you could take the bus (not recommended for a day trip). Scroll down for full instructions on how to get from KL to Legoland Malaysia.
If you are looking for the closest Legoland Malaysia airport, this is the Senai International Airport in Johor Bahru. However, you can go directly from Singapore International Airport to Legoland. It is further and can cost more, but depending on where you are coming from, this can be a valid option and is how we travel here from Australia.
Legoland Malaysia Map
How To Go From Johor Bahru To Legoland Malaysia
It’s quite easy to get to Legoland Malaysia from Johor Bahru. You can catch a taxi for the 25 minute-ish trip. The Grab app is a great way to get a taxi with a fixed price and no need to bargain.
There is also a bus, LM1, from JB Larkin from RM5.40.
If you are coming from the airport, you can book a shuttle directly to Legoland here.
How To Go To Legoland Malaysia From Singapore
It’s quite possible to day trip from Singapore to Legoland Malaysia. You can do this on a Legoland Malaysia tour from Singapore (here’s one) or take a Legoland Malaysia bus.
There are many options for a bus to Legoland Malaysia. You can find them here. Make sure you pick an option dropping you off at Legoland itself.
You can also take an easy Legoland Malaysia shuttle bus to Singapore which only stops in two places in Singapore which helps make this journey faster. Click here for more details.
This is the option I most recommend for a combination of ease plus time at the Legoland. The day tour above can take longer to get there cutting your time short.
However, the best option to get to Legoland Malaysia from Singapore is to take your own private taxi. I can book this for you here with a reliable local operator. It only costs SG$90 each way for up to five people (larger vehicles available) and you can choose when to go.
Unlike buses, you don’t have to exit the vehicle at each side of the border so it’s by far the quickest and most comfortable option which makes it especially attractive if you are just doing a day trip to Legoland Malaysia.
The Singapore to Legoland Malaysia travel time really depends on traffic, where in Singapore you are coming from and how quickly you get through the border area. An approximate time driving or in a taxi from the middle of Singapore is an hour if it’s a good time of day.
The travel time from Singapore to Legoland Malaysia on a bus will be longer with everyone needing to pass through immigration on both sides of the border.
How To Go From Kuala Lumpur To Legoland Malaysia
First of all, Kuala Lumpur is not that close to Legoland Malaysia and I wouldn’t recommend this on a day trip. However, it is possible and quite easy for people who are short on time and don’t mind a long day.
Legoland Malaysia to Kuala Lumpur is a 3.5 hour drive. If you do this, I recommend you either hire a car or book a private taxi (preferable – you can book one with a driver here), There is plenty of Legoland Malaysia parking once you reach here.
You can also book a day tour to Legoland Malaysia here which cuts out the need to buy a ticket to Legoland as well.
It’s also possible to take a regular public bus to Johor Bahru from Kuala Lumpur (find the prices and timetables here) and then a local bus to Legoland. However, I definitely do not recommend this for a day trip. You will waste too much time.
However, if you plan to stay in Johor Bahru, this is how I would do it if you don’t want to pay for a private taxi. The train from KL to Johor Bahru is not direct, so that is also a far more time consuming way to reach JB.
Other Legoland Malaysia Tips
Here are some final tips for visiting Legoland Malaysia:
- You can enter the main theme park ten minutes early. However, you can only stand in the entry part. There is an opening show and then you can enter the park right on 10am. Make it to this opening show so you are all set to go.
- If it’s not raining, do outdoor attractions at the Legoland theme park first. I recommend doing a circuit of the park doing the outdoor attractions and then another doing the indoor ones if/when it starts raining.
- If it starts raining, I recommend getting to the Imagination Land as quick as you can where there is the 4D cinema and other activities to do indoors.
- Take wet weather gear. There are ponchos for sale inside the park if you get stuck. Use a poncho for the Dino Island ride if you have one!
- If you have a combo ticket, you have the option to exit the park for more food options outside.
- With a one park ticket, you can’t re-enter if you leave the park so don’t exit until you are done.
- You can take your own food to save money.
- I only saw one woman at the Water Park not wearing a t-shirt style swim suit so you may not feel comfortable in a bikini (but it is allowed).
- As for a Legoland Malaysia dress code, you must wear proper swimming attire at the Water Park and no wet suits. Wear comfortable shoes for the theme park – you will do a lot of walking and be mindful that it’s hot and humid and dress appropriately.
- Take plenty of sunscreen.
Where To Stay At Legoland Malaysia
Although you can 100% visit Legoland Malaysia in a day trip from Singapore, I don’t recommend it if you can avoid it. It’s a long day and it’s cheaper, easier and much more fun to stay on site! Plus if you have kids who love Lego, why not extend the fun and stay in the Lego hotel that’s right next door?
Legoland Malaysia Hotel is the ultimate Lego experience for Lego fans as we show in this Legoland hotel Malaysia review. Not only is it located right at the theme park, but it has cool Lego themed rooms, activities, Lego character meet ups and is just a lot of fun. In fact, this is my favourite hotel in Malaysia for families.
The rooms are built for families with two separate sleeping areas. One for adults and one for kids with a bunk bed, trundle and their own TV. The best part is that they come in a range of themes – you can choose between a pirate, kingdom, Ninjago or adventure theme.
Throughout the day, there are scheduled activities from dance parades to meeting your favourite character to nightly movies. There is also a cool treasure chest in your room that you can open by solving puzzles! There’s a small lego gift in here for each of your kids.
The hotel also has a swimming pool, Lego themed play area and restaurant. It’s unreal!
We absolutely loved staying here and it really added to our Legoland experience. You can see more of the hotel in the video above.
You can also stay in Johor Bahru and commute. Here are my picks for the best hotels near Legoland.
We LOVE Legoland Malaysia. It’s so much fun, it’s a beautiful park and it’s perfect for families. From the rides to the pools to shows to building lots of Lego, we love it.
It’s been so great to get to visit it when it’s not crowded and this puts it way above any other theme park we have visited anywhere in the world (and we have been to a lot including Legoland Billund – the original – and Legoland California). It’s so easy spending two days here when you don’t have to worry about lines. Our daughter probably rode on roller coasters twenty times and that’s on top of us doing everything else possible.
The Water Park is on the small side but it is a fun companion to the main theme park and, again, perfect for families. My only complaint about this is that there aren’t many shaded areas at this park to sit.
Legoland Malaysia is definitely aimed at kids and families. A couple of the roller coasters are thrilling but adrenaline junkies are likely to be disappointed.
And while I do recommend Legoland for adults, expect to get through it quickly if there aren’t crowds, don’t expect huge adrenaline rushes and expect that many activities and attractions won’t be for you.
It’s also in a very convenient location close to Singapore and I plan to visit here many more times in the future!
