so i went to Legoland at JB a week back. truthfully, i was very excited for it since i heard about it last year/beginning of this year since my brothers and i did use to play with Lego and built these awesome castles! but booo it didn't live up to my expectations of it. \(T^T)/
it is spilt into a couple of zones as per usual - Kingdoms, Technic, Lego City, Mini Land, Imagination, Land of Adventure.
Kingdoms with the classic castle and dragons.
this is extremely pretty to me for some odd reason.
uhm. bears...playing? \( > - < )/
there were many play areas/play grounds around with different themes but i didn't visit them since they were mostly catered to kids. Legoland is extremely children friendly since most of the attractions/rides seemed to be designed for children 5-10 years old! i don't think teenagers will like it particularly much. i found it rather lacking. and definitely no adrenaline rush available!
a Musical Fountain. it has sensors so music starts playing as you approach it. hahaha.
a wet ride that was not as thrilling as i thought it would be. \(°^°)/
after walking a bit we had lunch at the cafe!
rainbow icecream which was basically paddlepop in a cone. super love paddlepop so i liked this a lot. HAHAHA.
salmon sandwich. the food seems super catered and not theme park stuff at all! in Disney and USS, the food are normally set to a theme with the cutlery and such designed specifically. those attention to details is what makes the experience so magical! however, at Legoland i felt like i was at Delifrance... \(T^T)/
the sculptures placed around randomly are quite interesting though. wahaha. #hamsup
water boat ride! if only the course was longer and more decorated...
sea themed fountain.
uber cute robots at the Technic side!
you could totally bring a pocket of legos and just disfigure them by sticking random pieces on. HAHAHA.
they were having some event/class, not sure which but wasn't that intriguing...i think the CS1101S Sumo-bots contest was so much cooler. hehh.
in this air-conditioned area where people try to build structures taller than these.
only photo i captured at the Land of Adventure.
Mini Land was the area which interested me the most since the level of detail to the sculptures were crazy, for lego standards. I mean, doing miniature replicas with just lego blocks requires a lot of skill as compared to normal materials due to the constraints of the parts. hence the abnormal amount of photos.
can you spot the mini pandas frolicking about by the Great Wall?
butter fact. hahaha.
in all, i feel that unless you are towing kids along, just give Legoland a miss. or more time to hopefully improve their existing infrastructure. especially if you're looking for an adrenaline rush. also, when i was there, i spent 45 mins queuing for the observatory tower and roller coaster. that is nothing for a theme park since i queued way more for Transformers in USS. BUT THE THING IS, THE RIDES BOTH BROKE DOWN. so i queued for 90 mins odd in total AND i was told that the rides broke down, TWICE. so definitely NOT a good experience -.-
though i'm pretty sure kids will love that place, broken rides or not.
