The highlight of the cub’s birthday celebration was our first trip to Legoland, Malaysia!
I was impressed that the cub could tell that the route to the checkpoint was foreign to him and took the opportunity to share with him that it is a neighbouring country we are visiting, hence we could just drive to the destination and not have to take a plane.
It was a short drive from the Malaysia checkpoint, so we didn’t have to fret over having to keep them entertained in the car.
The kids were thrilled the moment they stepped into the hotel lobby because play started right there.
Emmett came to say hi!
Never a dull moment at the Legoland hotel as the kids were entertained by the disco music elevators and LEGO fixtures along the way to the hotel room.
When we got to our hotel room, the kids could hardly contain their excitement! A bed for each of them, TV for their own viewing, and a box of Lego. Little wonder why the cub didn’t want to leave the hotel room. Even at the theme park, he would keep reminding us that he wants to go back to the hotel room right after we are done.
At the theme park, the kids soon learned the importance of height.
Both did not make the height requirement for the first ride they saw. The cub probably missed by a cm or two and was denied entry. I guess it’s good that they are strict for safety’s sake.
Had to humour the husb and accompanied him on a roller coaster ride since no one else wanted to or could do it. Yes, I have no guts and dare not take roller coaster rides. I’ve been more kia-see (怕死) than ever after kids came along. 我有两个孩子需要我 ok! Anyway, I survived!
Star Wars. For the fans, mostly. A great place to get some respite from the heat while admiring the Lego builders’ amazing Star War creations.
Royal Joust. The first ride that the cub could take without adult company. I was surprised he didn’t fuss about not having either of us around him, and he didn’t fidget or look like he was going to fall off any time. He was so proud of himself when he came back. So was I. 真係大個仔咯!
The lil’ dragonlady, on the other hand, was so disappointed she couldn’t join her brother and cousin on the horse rides because she didn’t make the height requirement (again).
Merlin’s Challenge. This high-speed carousel is not for the light-headed. All that spinning was a little too much to take for me!
Kids Power Tower. More like Daddy power cos they had to depend on their own arm power to move up and down the tower. Yet another surprise from the cub – he wasn’t afraid and enjoyed the ride and view!
By this time, the poor lil’ sis was feeling pretty left out.
We promptly head to DUPLO Playtown, where she could do any rides in there and put her in the DUPLO Express.
Took a short break and to get away from the heat a little by catching a 4D LEGO show.
We went in search for another ride that the lil’ dragonlady could take with her bigbro.
Lost Kingdom. A pretty fun and exciting ride! We got to use laser guns to shoot at targets and compete with each other.
LEGO City Airport. We could fly together and adjust how high/low we wanted to go!
Rescue Academy. Love how the whole family can play this activity together. The kids were having so much fun trying to put out the “fire”!
Met some LEGOFIGS along the way.
And they wished the cub “happy birthday!” 🙂
We hopped on the LEGOLAND Express and took in the sights of the park. By this time, the kids were running on low battery having skipped their nap in the afternoon.
Last stop – Junior Driving School! The cub’s first drive and it was a little bumpy. Nevertheless, he got his first license at 4! And we were done with the theme park of LEGOLAND.
