LEGOLAND Malaysia is opening soon! The First LEGOLAND in Asia
Located in Nusajaya, Johor, Malaysia, the 76-acre theme park will open on Saturday, September 15, 2012. It will be similar to the other LEGOLAND theme parks in Denmark, England, Germany, California and Florida, with rides, shows and attractions all centered around the popular LEGO toys.
Like the other LEGOLAND PARKS, they will feature a Miniland area filled with scale model cities and wonders of the world from Southeast Asia. Miniland is what truly sets each park apart, due to the different countries and cities featured in different LEGOLAND parks. Miniland showcases what a kid dreams of building with an unlimited collection of LEGO and all the time in the world!
LEGOLAND Malaysia will have more than 40 interactive rides, shows and attractions and is geared toward families with children from 2-12 years old.

LEGOLAND Malaysia Miniland
LEGOLAND Malaysia Miniland will feature wonders of the world from Malaysia, India, Cambodia, Vietnam, Philippines, China, Brunei, Thailand and the list goes on... The Model Designers spent hundreds of thousands of hours crafting scale models of all of these the cities and villages out of ordinary LEGO bricks.
I worked for several years, caring for Miniland at LEGOLAND California and every day I would find something new. Whether it be a detail on a building, a unique way of using LEGO bricks or a cultural reference or joke. The level of detail in Minilands are amazing and Miniland Malaysia is set to be the best, yet.
