At the park gate. We were taught this L gesture by the park photographers ... "L" is for Legoland.

Everything you need to know about the New Waterpark

It was a really scorching hot day during the soft opening of Legoland Waterpark Malaysia for media and their families. Judging by children response of the fun quotient, it certainly looks set to be a mainstay on short holiday getaway for Singaporeans and even international tourists.

This brand new Water Park has more than 20 unique water based rides with over 3 million liters of water. There are also over 70 specially built LEGO models. It is the largest LEGOLAND Water Park in the world and the only one which guests can enjoy by itself or in combination with the Legoland Theme Park we visited recently just next door. You can also read Wei Ling's blog of her Legoland theme park experience.

And with the scheduled opening of the Legoland Hotel in early 2014, it is projected to be developed into one of the largest family-oriented family themed in South east Asia, comprising the Legoland- Park, Water Park & Hotel. The water park has officially opened on the 21 Oct 2013. Here is the official site for more park information.

What's a visit to Legoland without playing with the real McCoys ? plenty to play with here...BUT a word of caution, don't put any in your bags accidentally...there will be a baggage screening check when you exit the park.

Have a really fun time at the Legoland Water Park. Just remember, bring the suntan and waterproof camera. And avoid the forecasted thundery days. Activities will be put on hold in favour of safety. Better still, book the 2 days package for a more well-rounded great time.

To take advantage of discount and save on queuing time, book online in advance. This will also greatly help in the park management in manpower planning to ensure a more pleasant outing at the park.
