Photo TR: Mini Malaysia Trip!


Recommended Posts

Great TR, thanks for posting!

 

I love the 'epic' themeing that USS gets... Mummy/Egypt especially are just on such a bigger scale outside the ride that the US parks aren't even in the same league!

 

I also fully appreciate the fact that the developers have opted 100% for RIDES in their park over film based attractions - with the exception of Shrek, there are literally no movies in the whole park! And I think we can all forgive them a single 4D movie, right?

 

My only nitpick about the whole thing is that the actual on-ride theme elements for Madagascar and Rapids Adventure seemed a bit light. In Madagascar, HUGE show building, great ride system, massive, long ride... but very little animatronics, mainly static cartoon figures. With River Adventure, honestly not that many dinos, compared to the US and Japanese versions... which is sad because I liked the unique take on the ride system, and again the EPIC ride length!

 

But overall, a great park, basically a "pocket battleship" in terms of attractions packed into a small space, and lots of good unique stuff... Sesame Street Spaghetti Space Chase is one of the better attempts to do an original family dark ride (felt very Muppet like) and of course BSG!

 

Thanks again for the TR, and good show Universal Singapore!

Don't forget about Transformers...even though it doesn't have 3D

Broken record here - I'm impressed with how much detail is in USS! Doubt I'll ever get there so am thankful for your very thorough TR. Sesame Street's Spaghetti Space Chase looked interesting so I watched it on youtube and again, I'm impressed!

So, sorry about the delay but I am back for day 2 of my mini Malaysia trip!

 

Today, I headed out early and headed over to the Singapore Flyer to locate the WTS travel office and book a seat on a coach to Legoland Malaysia!

Where should I visit today?

This is where I headed to from the hotel this morning

On the coach heading to Malaysia! During the trip we had to go through all the hassle of all the Singapore and Malaysia customs etc. In total the trip to Legoland incl customs at both borders took around 2 hours

Yay!

I love the Hollywood style sign on the hill

This is a model of Kuala Lumpur airport. It's huge!

legolandmyy-014.thumb.jpg.402779bcbd6a4fe9b88b244630cdad76.jpg

Including the little trains that ferry you between the airport buildings

I recognise this from my visit in 2012

I'm sure I recognise this too. I wish they had included the roller coaster to get down from the wall too! I love the little Pandas!

First coaster of the three at Legoland was Dragon's Apprentice. It's a Zierer ride.

The Dragon here is a much bigger version of Zierer's Force coasters. It also includes the normal dark ride section before the ride part, It did seem much longer than the other Dragon Coasters and the dark ride section had a cool little fake launch part before the lift.

legolandmyy-047.thumb.jpg.2659534ec88806f0f32c8399f40b30f6.jpg

Has to be one of my favourite Lego models at a Legoland park.

legolandmyy-048.thumb.jpg.c2f22acd7a24a2df4eac8958820a393e.jpg

The final coaster at the park is Project X. It's the standard wild mouse that (I think) all but Windsor has.

The queue did take a while unfortunately but eventually I got my ride. I should have waited a couple of hours as when I returned, the ride was walk on. I rode several times and the ride op then decided to just keep sending me around without unlocking my restraint so I got more rides even if I didn't want them! :-)

Next up was Technic Twister. As always themed really nicely and I thought the actual ride was more forceful than Accelerator at Universal

They seem to really like Ribena at this park so why not build a Ribena Berry out of Lego?

Buildings like this were dotted around the park where you could pop in and build a model and test it on a race track or earthquake shake plate.

I took a quick detour to have a look at the Legoland Hotel

Love the custom carpets!

The amount of minifigures behind the reception desk is incredible!

Heading back to Singapore through the borders once again. Return journey took around 2.5 hours due to long queues at the Singapore border.

Later that evening I took a wander around the opposite side of the marina from where I had been a few nights ago.

Thanks for joining me!

The bus arrived at the park around 10am and I was scheduled to return on the earliest bus back to Singapore which was at 16:15 and I'm glad I did that. It gave me plenty of time to do the park. Especially if you have visited other Legoland parks you will have no problems whatsoever completing the whole park in a couple of hours. I did visit on a Tuesday though so queues were hardly a problem. No idea what it's like during a weekend.

 

I also highly recommend booking at least 2 days in advance with WTS Travel. I forgot and tried to book the night before when I got back from Universal and it wouldn't let me. As my hotel was only a very short walk from the Singapore Flyer, I headed down to the WTS office super early on the morning in the hopes they would allow me to book on the day. I think they only allowed me as I was travelling alone on this occasion. phew!

Did they relax the rules at USS? When I went a few years ago everything went into a locker before riding mummy or the Battlestar rides and they had wavy metal detectors at Battlestar so I missed out on a lot of things I wanted to snap in the line. Judging by your pictures I might need to make a trip back to finally get my cylon picture.

When I went a few years ago everything went into a fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo before riding mummy or the Battlestar rides and they had wavy metal detectors at Battlestar so I missed out on a lot of things I wanted to snap in the line.

Nope, no relaxing those rules. Lockers were mandatory for BSG and Mummy. I was allowed to wear glasses on Mummy but not BSG. Wavy metal detectors were in use at BSG for both sides.

 

I got the photos of the stations first thing in the day but didn't use the real queueline for that! That's why I couldn't grab anymore photos later in the day.

I envy you then. I asked the staff where the cylon I'd seen outside the entrance in old pictures was, and they told me it had gone into the queue line. Since the ride was walk-on, I asked if it was possible to go through the single-rider take a picture and come back but they, understandably, were uneasy and said no.

 

I still want to go back to the park but I still have gravity max and a good B&M Flyer to find in China to splash out on going to before I re-visit. That and being a 2 hour plane ride from Tokyo Disney (and with a wife who really likes Hong Kong Disney) means our vacation days get eaten up by other places.

The cylon isn't actually in the queue line but is opposite the loading bays after the queue line. Feel free to use my photo if needed!

 

It's okay, one of my friend's found some "cylon sunglasses" so I had borrowed them to take a picture with it. That's probably what stopped them letting me in for my picture, no crazies allowed.

My wife and I had been discussing Legoland as option as part of our time in Singapore, and honestly the 4.5 hours you spent in transit/immigration/customs loudly told us that we should pursue something else given the limited number of other attractions of appeal in Johor Bahru. Thanks a bunch; there's not a ton out there from coaster enthusiasts about it.

I have to say that the whole process through WTS Travel was very efficient and they handle everything including the purchase of your Legoland entry ticket so you waste no time once at the park. It's just the immigration and customs that slow it down. Mainly because they had no more than 2 lanes open each and the Singapore and Malaysia immigration are in two separate buildings either side of the river so it's off bus, through immigration, on bus, drive, off bus, through immigration, on bus and drive. Then rinse and repeat on the return leg. Bit of a pain.

 

There is so much to see in Singapore anyway to keep people entertained.
