LEGOLAND Malaysia opens the first LEGOLAND® Water Park in Asia and the largest LEGOLAND® Water Park in the world.
LEGOLAND Malaysia has opened its water park to the public. With a LEGOLAND Hotel due to open at the beginning of 2014, the development will transform the park into the largest family destination resort in Southeast Asia.
LEGOLAND Malaysia and the LEGOLAND® Water Park are located in the Iskandar Malaysia region which is easily accessible for local and international visitors and is at the heart of the rapidly developing Singapore/South Malaysia theme park hub.
The LEGOLAND® Water Park is the largest in the world with over 3 million litres of water, and is the only one which visitors can enjoy as an attraction in its own right or in addition to the theme park.
John Jakobsen, Managing Director of LEGOLAND Parks for Merlin Entertainments, said, “It’s incredibly exciting to be celebrating the expansion of LEGOLAND Malaysia and the opening of the Water Park is a major milestone in the transformation of LEGOLAND into a Resort – the perfect location for a family short break. We are also very pleased to see that the opening of LEGOLAND Malaysia has been a catalyst to encourage other high quality leisure businesses to the area, and share our partners’ exciting vision for southern Malaysia to become a hub for international entertainment.”
The LEGOLAND® Water Park includes more than 20 water rides and 70 LEGO models, one of which will be a duck model built by the first guests. Highlights for guests include Build-A-Raft River where kids can customise their own raft with soft LEGO bricks before floating down the lazy river, and Joker Soaker which is an interactive play structure complete with water cannons and giant tipping bucket.
Siegfried Boerst, General Manager of LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort, said, “We are delighted to be opening the Water Park. It adds a whole new dimension to the LEGOLAND Malaysia experience. LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort has more than 70 rides, slides, shows and attractions in total. It is a unique holiday destination for the entire family to enjoy, offering adventure, education and fun for action-packed day trips or longer breaks. ”
