NUSAJAYA: Legoland Malaysia is looking at increasing its visitors from more countries once it officially opens the Legoland Hotel next year, says theme park general manager Siegfried Boerst adding that the water park is confirmed to open on Oct 21 of this year.
He said the bulk of visitors were still Malaysians and Singaporeans, while 25% of the total number were from neighbouring countries such as Indonesia and the Philippines.
“Legoland is focusing on transforming the experience for visitors, and we are preparing facilities to allow them to stay here for longer periods.
“We are evolving into a full-fledged resort and excited as our visitors will be able to stay at Legoland Hotel and enjoy various attractions within Legoland Malaysia such as the new water park,” he said during Legoland’s first year anniversary celebrations on Sunday.
He added that tickets for the water park would be sold at separate prices, but packages for both Legoland and the water park are also available.
“We are also providing special promotions for our annual pass holders,” he added.
A huge “cake” made out of 300,000 Lego pieces greeted visitors at the park entrance.
The cake was built over time by the staff with the help of park visitors since it first opened on Sept 15 last year.
Games and fun activities were also held for park visitors throughout the day and the celebrations ended with a beautiful display of unusual fireworks in the shape of Lego pieces, which were viewed using special 3D glasses.
Proceeds from the sale of cakes at the Legoland Café were also channelled to Merlin’s Magic World, a worldwide charity for underprivileged children.
