I was excited to read that there will be a Legoland in JB in 2013. The story is that Danish toy maker Lego will open a multimillion dollar Legoland theme park in southern Malaysia (Johor Bahru) in 2013. I am more interested in the cool displays than the rides though. This will be a great attraction for both kids and adults I think although it is said to target kids 2 to 12. Right now there are Legolands in Denmark, Britain, California, Florida and Germany. It’s pretty cool that the 6th one is being opened in our neighbouring country Malaysia and especially in the state that is right across the causeway from us.
Here’s an interesting news extract and you can read the full article here.
The Taj Mahal is almost done, while Holy Light Church in Johor Baru and the Malaysian High Court have been completed.
But the biggest challenge may simply be carrying them out of the workshop.
At the Model Building Center in Johor Baru, a team of 32 builders, the youngest of whom is 22, is labouring with some unusual materials – 30 million Lego bricks.
Inside the nondescript two-story building, each builder sits at his or her workstation working on different models. The hum of machines is noticeably absent, as each model is painstakingly put together by hand.
The builders are working day and night to complete 15,000 Lego model structures for the $256 million Legoland Malaysia, which is slated to open late next year.
Singaporeans will be able to get there via the Tuas Second Link, which is just a 15-minute drive from the park.
