Insider Tips

  • Book your tickets online. When you book your tickets online, you not only save yourself the trouble of waiting in line at the ticketing counter at the park but you can also avail some discounts!
  • If you have bought a day pass, note that it allows you entry only once into the park. If you want to enter and exit multiple times, purchase a combo pass.
  • Make sure you carry an umbrella or a raincoat. This part of Malaysia sees only sunshine and rain, and sometimes both together. In order to prevent the weather from ruining your day, carry an umbrella.
  • Outside food is not allowed into the park. However, you are allowed to bring your own water- bottle
  • There are many souvenir stores around the park. If you buy something and don't want to carry it around, you can ask the store to send it to the exit for collection and pick it up from there when you leave.
  • Go as soon as the park opens. Legoland Malaysia tends to get crowded towards the afternoon and evening, so if you can get in early, you can complete all your favourite rides without waiting in a long lines.
  • Rides for kids below 125 cms is highly limited.
  • To sweep through the entire theme park, it is recommended that you stay in the Legoland Malaysia Resort and visit the park over a span of 2 days.
  • Prioritise doing all the outdoor activities first. As mentioned earlier, the weather can get pretty unpredictable, so take advantage of the sun while it’s out and finish all your outdoor activities first.
  • Make sure you take a map at the ticketing counter itself. This will help you save a ton of time and you’ll also have a better idea as to what you want to do first.
