Cuti-cuti Johor – Legoland (Theme Park)

We started Day 2 with breakfast at Storia Café, which serves typical Malaysian breakfast like nasi lemak, mee siam, etc.  But what’s unique at this café is the freshly grilled otak-otak.

We headed to Legoland after that, reaching at about 9.30am.  We had some leisurely time for some photographs before the theme park opened. 

We started at the Lego Technic, and our first ride was the Technic Twister.

Next up was Project X, and this time, Yan Yan is tall enough for all the rides so all four of us went.  Bad choice of first “daredevil” ride for Yan Yan – poor girl was terrified at the steep drop from the top, and it took her a while to regain her composure.  She even refused to go on the Aquazone Wave Racer so I went with Yiu Yiu.

Next we went to Lego Kingdoms and our first ride was the Dragon’s Apprentice.

The girls then got their hand painted with henna, before we then went on the Dragon roller coaster.  I started with Yiu Yiu first, and went for 2-3 rounds before Yan Yan gathered enough courage to join us.

Yan Yan gathered enough courage to go on the Dragon ride with us, and she loved it :-)

After all the excitement, we took a break with Merlin’s Challenge, a mild carousel ride.

We moved on to Imagination, where we all went on the Kid Power Towers, Yiu Yiu with Yihao and Yan Yan with me.  Next was the Observation Tower for a bird’s eyes view of Legoland, before catching a 4D show at the Lego Studio.

It was threatening to pour by then so we quickly moved to the Land of Adventure.  We all made it for the Dino Island ride, which we missed the last round, before it started pouring and all the rides were stopped.

It rained for about an hour and when it stopped, we grabbed a late lunch at Burger Junction.  The family meal which consisted of burgers and fried chicken with fried was surprisingly good.

After lunch, we went on the Beetle Bounce, followed by the Lost Kingdom Adventure ride.  

We then went fire-fighting at the Lego Rescue Academy.  

The kids wanted to go to the Driving School but the queue was long so the two smaller children, Yishen and Yan Yan went to the Junior Driving School first.  They were overaged for it actually but the attendants didn’t stop them ;-)  Next we went boating at the Boating School.

We eventually went back to the Driving School – the queue was still long so the kids waited about 40 minutes for their turn – our longest wait.

We went on the Legoland Express to wrap up our visit to Legoland.  Since we have another 45 minutes before the park closes, the children wanted to do the Project X and Dragon roller coaster rides again.  We rode and rode till the park closed at 7pm J

We were pleasantly surprised that Yiu Yiu won a Friends lego set in a lucky draw contest.  We had filled up some forms in the morning and dropped them into the contest box, only to see Yiu Yiu’s name on the winner’s board at the end of the day J
