Come 15th September 2012, Malaysia’s latest attraction will be opening its doors to the old and young alike. LEGOLAND® Malaysia is the sixth LEGOLAND to be built in the world and the very first in Asia. Yes, we get first dibs!
In April this year, we took a trip down to Nusajaya in Johor Bahru for a little sneak peek at the universally popular LEGO themed park. We haven’t stopped checking up on its news and updates ever since.
Just today, merely a few weeks away from its grand launch, LEGOLAND® Malaysia announced its bus and shuttle services. Ah, just the thing we needed! You know, not everyone can simply take a trip down to Johor Bahru and expect not to get lost.
“Our aim is to make the journey to the Park as easy as possible especially for families with children. With the door-to-door service, visitors can get to the Park comfortably and be assured that their journey will be less tiring,” said Siegfried Boerst (General Manager of LEGOLAND® Malaysia) upon the announcement.
The bus and shuttle services will operate every day from JB Sentral, Larkin, Gelang Patah Sentral and Johor Premium Outlets (JPO) and will commence in time for the Park’s grand opening.
A daily dedicated bus service, operated by Konsortium Transnasional Berhad (KTB), will leave Larkin for LEGOLAND® every thirty minutes between 9:00am and midday. Return buses will run from LEGOLAND to Larkin from 4:00pm until 6:30pm from Sunday to Friday. On Saturdays, school holidays and public holidays they will run until 8.30pm. Each round trip will cost only RM12.
Causeway Link will operate two new bus services. There will be a total of SIX trips each day between Johor Premium Outlets (JPO), LEGOLAND® and the Tuas 2ndLink. Visitors can expect up to 15 trips on the second Causeway Link route: JB Sentral – Larkin Sentral – LEGOLAND – Gelang Patah.
And even if you plan to drive, the Park Park has over 3,500 car parking bays on site and over 100 spaces for buses and coaches. It will provide visitors with access to both the Park and Mall of Medini. To further help navigation, the route to LEGOLAND is also well signposted.
So you can’t say that LEGOLAND® Malaysia is inaccessible now, can you? We’re not accepting any excuses! Now, let’s all make a date with some childhood dreams on the 15th September this year.
