Legoland Malaysia Resort (opened 15 Sept. 2012) promises family fun where "almost everything is hands-on, so you can push, pedal and program, or steer, squirt and splash your way through a truly interactive experience - and of course there's building too". When we were there recently, we were a family of: 'wargamas' mother with two grown-up daughters, a nephew and his wife. No young children in tow!
There are 40 rides, shows and attractions, and it would take nearly two days to do them all perhaps. But we were there for only half a day, so we were most selective, aided by the late afternoon heavy downpour.

Miniland is touted as the centrepiece of Legoland Malaysia where Asian landmarks (on a scale of 1:20) have been recreated using more than 30 million LEGO bricks. That's a whole lotta (sic) plastic bricks! We can't help but be impressed with these beautiful miniature buildings. Especially the Twin Towers and the Taj Mahal. But our harsh tropical weather will take a heavy toll on them, so maintenance will be quite a headache?

Legoland Water Park had its 'soft launch' the day we were there. I am not a fan of water theme parks in general, but rafting on the 'lazy river' looked inviting enough. For next time, maybe. Maybe ...
