Last Tuesday we drove down to Johor Bharu. Shhh! Our boys skipped school. It's the only way to avoid crowd. What's the point of vacationing on a school holiday? It'll be super crowded, long queues, hotel surcharge, stress, etc. LOL! Anyways, we had a wedding to attend that weekend in Singapore, so hubby decided that we go to Legoland since were traveling south by car.
Ok the amusement park is big. You'll need to spend a whole day there if you wish to try out all the rides. Lucky for us, there wasn't that many people because we were there on a weekday, remember? *wink*.
I saw many play areas for toddlers and kids, many attractions and rides, food is pretty good, price is reasonable for an amusement park and many water coolers to quench your thirst. Here's a tip, bring a water bottle so that you can refill because you'll need to drink plenty of water. I didn't know, I thought at the entrance they'll go through our bags like in Hong Kong Disneyland. No big deal, we bought drinks in there. But trust me, it's really hot there. Bring along a cap and smother yourself and kids (and spouse) with sunblock. I think it'll be great if Legoland buys big shade trees and place them all over the park. There's a few covered areas and airconditioned restaurants, etc. It helps a little.
Don't bring bags unless you don't mind leaving it behind on the shelf. I didn't want to leave my bag behind because we had our passport with a few hundred SGD $ in it. In Universal Studios Singapore we are allowed to carry our bag along. But unfortunately not here in Legoland.
Here we are at Legoland.

Glad the real KLCC is not made of Lego. Hahaha!

At Lego Kingdom.
Overall, I think kids from 3 to 12 would love Legoland and teens would prefer Universal Studios (About 2hrs drive down into Sentosa, Singapore).
FYI, soon there'll be Legoland Hotel and Legoland Water Park. Currently it's still under construction. Below are some pics I stole from other Legoland's website.
The rooms would probably be something
like this for boys and princessy for girls?
Legoland Windsor (if I'm not mistaken)
