Legoland Malaysia attracted over 250,000 visitors since opening

Legoland Malaysia has proven to be a huge success to attract 250,000 visitors since its opening in September this year.

IDR Resorts Sdn Bhd is a project holding company for Legoland Malaysia. The company’s Chief Executive Officer, Muhammad Zainal Ashikin Muhammad Rejab, told Bermama that the number of visitors has ‘exceed expectations’.  However, the company will maintain its target of attracting one million visitors to the RM 750 million theme park in the first year.

“We are maintaining the target and confident it will be met,” he said.

Zainail is also chief development officer of Themed Attractions and Resorts Sdn Bhd (TAR), a wholly-owned unit of Khazanah Nasional Bhd.

Legoland Malaysia theme park is owned by TAR and Iskandar Investment Bhd through IDR Resorts and operated by Merlin Entertainments Group.

On TAR’s future project, Zainal said that besides the Puteri Habour Family Theme Park which had its soft launch last weekend, the company would also concentrate on the Legoland Hotel and the Legoland Water Theme Park.

“The Legoland Water Theme Park and the hotel, both located adjacent to the Legoland Malaysia theme park, are expected to open next year and 2014 respectively,” he said.

The Legoland Malaysia theme park was inspired by the Danish toy bricks and divided into seven themed areas, comprising more than 50 million Lego bricks.

The 30.7-hectare theme park, located within Johor’s administrative capital of Nusajaya, is the sixth worldwide after Denmark, the UK, California, Germany and Florida.
