Legoland Malaysia eyeing visitors from Singapore

With Lego-built attractions like a Merlion spouting water, a spinning Singapore Flyer and the Fullerton Hotel, Asia's first Legoland theme park is undeniably targeting Singaporean visitors when it opens later this year.

The theme park, which is valued at RM720 million (S$296 million), is constructed on a 31-ha site at the Iskandar development region in Johor, a few minutes' drive from the Second Link connecting Johor and Singapore.

"Singapore is a very important market for us, especially the locals and tourists there," said Siegfried Boerst, General Manager at Legoland Malaysia.

Apart from famous Singapore landmarks, other attractions include the Petronas Twin Towers, a Moorish-style railway station in Kuala Lumpur and India's Taj Mahal. Most of the models are about one-twentieth the actual size of the landmarks. Overall, around five million Lego bricks were used in the construction.  Related Stories:
