Legoland Malaysia Ninjago

Legoland’s newest attraction this year let’s you put your ninja skills to test!

Ninjago ride takes you to a mission to defeat the enemy by using your arms to create a lightning strike. In front of your seat were sensors that triggers when you extend your arm creating an illusion of you generating a lightning.

As per Legoland’s website there were four steps to master the lightning strike move :

Step 1 – Make your arm and hand as straight as a board
Step 2 – Bend your arm into a “V” shape
Step 3 – Karate chop downward like a bolt of lightning
Step 4 – Repeat

It was fun but I felt soreness in my arms afterwards. Maybe I did not do it correctly but hey, we came in second! Taking photos was not allowed inside so we just took advantage of the ninja statue made of Lego outside.

Star Wars Miniland at Legoland Malaysia

LEGO Star Wars Miniland is a must see when in Legoland. The attraction features seven scenes from the six Star Wars films and The Clone Wars animated series. It features more than 2,000 LEGO models built to a 1:20 scale using 1.5 million LEGO bricks as per website. The model display also feature authentic Star Wars sounds, actions and lighting effects.

I admit that I was not a fan of the series but the miniature display of certain scenes, places, and events were so beautifully crafted and it was also interactive as you can push several buttons on the side to move objects.

  • If you have some luggage with you that you don’t want to carry at all times while inside Legoland then, they have lockers designated outside or inside the theme park. Rent for the whole day is 20 RM for a small locker and 40 RM for the big ones.
  • Bring umbrella, cap/hat, or anything that can protect you with the unpredictable weather.
  • Bring plenty of water for the scorching heat and something that you can eat. But don’t worry if you forget, they have plenty of stores inside.
  • By the way, if you forget to exchange your money to their currency, do not worry they accept any currency but of course with their defined exchange rate.

Malaysia 2.0

It was my third time to go to Malaysia but my second time to go to Johor Bahru and Kuala Lumpur.

It was Chinese New Year and we had a very long weekend to spare so we opted to visit a nearby country.

We visited Legoland and stayed overnight at Johor Bahru. The next day we took the bus going to Kuala Lumpur. I thought that this trip would run smoothly but it turned out the odds was not in my favor after all.

First, we had a hard time going to Genting highlands because there were a lot of people going there that time. There was a long queue at Genting Skyway station and teksi (cab) drivers were charging us 40 MYR, by the way we took a cab going there at 35 MYR from Pudu Sentral.

Indeed patience is a virtue but I’m a woman of no patience. Haha.
