If you weren’t excited about the LEGO Watch System or the German TrainBridge that looks like it’s made of LEGO bricks or even the truly awesome life-sized LEGO X-Wing fighter, the world’s largest Legoland Water Park should definitely get your attention. Based in Malaysia, the 300,000 square meter park was opened this week. It’s got it all from a 240-feet-long Tidal Tube and plenty of other water attractions to 70 LEGO models all in three million liters of water.
But the best part is at their interactive platform that lets kids actually put together their own rafts with soft LEGO bricks. Kids can then just float gently down the Build-A-Raft River on slow moving current and enjoy the ride. This is a part of the Legoland Park that’s now over a year old that was opened in Iskandar near Singapore where everything from the restaurants to private cabanas, theme stores, sculptures and other installations are made from LEGO. For the much younger visitors the Duplo Splash Safari is where the action is at. Here the slides are much smaller and feature popular LEGO characters like alligators, polar bears and elephants. And the piece de resistance is to be found at MINILAND where on display is the world’s biggest LEGO Death Star model-constructed from more than half a million LEGO bricks. Next up will be the Legoland Hotel. I’d love to see that!
