Nusajaya, Malaysia — Asia’s first LEGOLAND® Water Park promises families yet another exciting adventure as it opened to the public officially on October 21. The rides, slides and attractions are all in full flow and have been enjoyed by the first wave of guests during an exclusive preview period. The opening of the Water Park leads the transformation of LEGOLAND Malaysia into a Resort.
The Water Park contains over 3 million litres of water and has more than 20 unique water based rides. There are also over 70 specially built LEGO models. It is the largest LEGOLAND Water Park in the world and the only one which can be enjoyed either on its own as a stand-alone attraction or in combination with the Theme Park.
The Water Park’s highlights include Build-A-Raft River and the Joker Soaker. The Build-A-Raft River is a unique concept where children can customise their own raft with LEGO soft bricks before floating down a lazy river. The Joker Soaker is a fun interactive play structure where children can aim water cannons at one another. The extra surprise to the Joker Soaker is when a giant bucket pours 350 gallons of water into the wade pool below.
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. ”
A LEGOLAND Hotel will also open at the beginning of next year, which will complete the plan to develop LEGOLAND Malaysia into the largest family destination resort in Southeast Asia. It is strategically located at the heart of the rapidly developing Iskandar Malaysia region, and is accessible to both local and international visitors.
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.”
