I wish I could claim the line, “A very vroomy experience,” but I can’t. The honour for that line belongs to my son, eight year old Tom Parry and the first kid in the world to experience the shock and awe of the new Legoland Malaysia Virtual Reality Roller Coaster.
This ride is a real roller coaster and a real virtual reality experience. You’re strapped in to a real world roller coaster and then the goggles come over your face and you’re completely immersed in the world of Lego. Look back at the people in the seat behind you and you’ll see a Lego world. Look above you to the real world blue sky above Legoland and you’ll see a Lego world. Look to the sides, look to the front and you are completely Lego-bound.
The ride has just opened and to experience this and other attractions head to Legoland Malaysia, located in Johor Bahru.
Many airlines fly from Australian capital cities to Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, including Qantas, Malaysia Airlines, Malindo Air, AirAsia and Singapore Airlines. Legoland is a one to two hour drive from Singapore’s Changhi International Airport or a short domestic flight from Kuala Lumpur to Johor Bahru.
Make the experience complete by staying at the Legoland Hotel. An Adventure-themed room will cost from AU$216 and each room has its own treasure hunt, Lego bricks to build (and step on) and all guests have entry to the Legoland Theme Park and Legoland Water Park one hour before the gates open to the public. An adult one-day ticket combo includes entry to the theme park and water park and is about AU$60. A child one-day ticket combo is about AU$40.
