Paid a visit to Legoland during the Labour Day weekend. We were expecting big crowds, but surprisingly it was okay, we even manage to go a few rides and slides more than once!
The plan was to spend 1 whole day at the Water park, and the second day at the Theme Park. Both parks are open from 10am to 7pm daily. Bought the 7 day Advance tickets for both park tickets for one Adult and one kid. Read more about the ticket prices and where to stay here.
Tips for the Water Park :
- You can bring your own mineral water, snacks or packed food, but make sure you keep it in your bag. (They don’t check your bags upon entry, not on the day we went that is).
- Keep your tickets in case you want to go out from the park and go in again. They do not give out the wristbands like other waterparks (weird).
- Lockers are provided if you don’t want to drag your bags along everywhere, RM20 a day for a smaller locker, RM40 a day for a bigger one. You rent the locker for the whole day, and you can open and close it as many times as you want. They do not use the conventional locks for the lockers but using thumbprint or you set your own pin to unlock it. So no worries if you misplaced the locker keys as they do not come with keys.
- Forgot to bring a towel? Rent one for RM20 per day, but they will take another RM20 as deposit that they will return back to you.
- Sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen. Protect your skin. It can be super hot and not much shade to sit under.
Leave your floaties at home
Don’t have to bring floaties for your kids, (unless you are bringing an infant or baby) because they provide life jackets or swim vests for toddlers & adults for FREE. They have plenty of it so you don’t have to worry if they will have enough for all visitors. They even have the big round floaties that adults can sit on and glide across the water canal. Babies must wear swimming diapers which is also available there.
Food and drinks
Buy the meal in sets, it’s much cheaper (as in ‘themepark standard’, you know all food in themeparks are a tad bit overpriced anyways, so no choice) . I bought one adult meal and one kids meal set for RM40. Add in another RM10 when you buy the Kids meal set and you get this cool Lego meal box. (This box is priced at RM19.90 in the Lego Shop). So total RM50 you get 1 Adult meal set with drinks (get the beef burger set – the burger is actually quite thick and yummy, something like Burger Kings) and 1 Kid meal set with the Lego meal box. All set meals are basically western menu such as burger, nuggets, hotdogs, waffles, ice-cream, pop-corn and etc. Not much choices here in the the Waterpark compared to the theme park.
What to wear
The Waterpark has ample rides that you can go on as a family and even a play area just for the little kids or toddlers. If you don’t wear swimsuits, they might not allow you to go down some water slides as they fear you will get stuck in the middle. So if you plan to ride on the slides, make sure you wear the proper swim suit material, not the common cotton tshirt. For those with hijabs, you can wear the muslimah swimwear or opt for a football jersey top, as the material is smooth enough to let you slide through the slides smoothly.
Private Cabanas / Tent
If you come in a family of four or more, they have private Cabana’s by the pool that you can rent daily. It’s like your own private tent. Inside the cabana is a few lazy chairs (that you can sleep on), a mini-fridge (trust me you will need this), a mini-safe to keep your precious belongings and one big fan in the middle. The adults or elders can laze around here while waiting for their kids splashing around the park. The price is (whoaaa) RM300 per day, or RM150 for half day. If you don’t need a private space for your family, just opt to sit around at the lazy chairs provided at the open spaces, FOC of course.
Basically, once you are in the waterpark, the only thing you need to spend is basically on food or cabanas. The rest are free (hence the ticket price). Go on the water rides as many times as you want, just make sure you’re in the right queue.
Most importantly, don’t forget to set a meeting point with your kids, in case they get lost or carried away and it’s difficult to find them once they are excitedly going up and down water slides and tunnels in the playground.
Have fun splashing!
