So we've been to LEGOLAND Malaysia at least half a dozen times but I have not dedicated posts to writing on the theme park or water park. You know how sometimes you badly feel like doing something but end up procrastinating, and the more you procrastinate, the more you think "I guess this can wait". Yeah, this is one of those. Same as the other few dozens things I wish to blog about but have yet to do so. You know, like Angel's 4th year video, our trip to Pulau Ubin, our honeymoon and many more.
Today, as a first step in getting myself to snap out of the procrastination, I will be sharing the fun times we had as a family at the LEGOLAND Malaysia Water Park! *splashes and squeals*
You know, I can't name any kid who doesn't like to play in water. Not any. But parents, I've seen a few. When I heard that a friend was against the idea of going to any water park because she finds changing, getting wet and running after the child a hassle, I was really appalled. Imagine how much that child is missing out? All the thrills, spills, and fun-filled afternoons.
My girls really love playing with water and if you give them a tub filled with water and two cups, they can somehow have fun for hours. That is mainly the reason why we wanted to have a bathtub in our toilet even though we stay in a HDB flat. It is pretty amazing how something as simple as water can bring about so much bonding, laughter and joy.
As both our girls were still quite little, and may I say short, they were unable to participate in more than half of the rides. The more thrilling rides like Splash and Swirl, Tidal Tube, Brick Blaster and Slide Racer required a minimum height of 1.07m and others like Red Rush and Twin Chasers required a minimum height of 1.02m. Since Angel, who was standing at 1m tall, also had a phobia of riding down big, swirly slides on her own, it was not hard to come to a conclusion that we should just hang around the rides which were more family friendly.
The LEGO Wave Pool was one which was suitable for the entire family to enjoy, given that it had ample space, gentle waves and was aptly located by the Beach 'N' Brick Grill where we could tuck into hotdogs and chicken tenders.
The Imagination Station consists of two interactive tables where kids can build bridges, learn to control water flow and create their own water symphony. For me, it was a little challenging carrying the toddler up so she could explore and holding her in that position for just ten minutes was a test of arm power.
If your child is one of those who loves to go to a water playground and wait below the giant pail for the water to fall, you might be happy to know that the Joker Soaker has a 300-gallon bucket! It also offers slides of different types and heights - children below 1.02m will not be allowed on the middle and top level slides. For the low level slides, they must be 91cm or taller, otherwise they must be accompanied by an adult.
Wet N Wild. So, since this was supposed to be a family outing and a time to bond with my kids, I decided to just leave these more challenging slides aside and patiently wait till the girls turn older so we can all have fun together.
For the time being, we shall be content to just splash around, enjoy the sun, admire the sights, relish the simple joy and be thankful that we can be in this place as a family.
That said, we will definitely be back for more! Thank you LEGOLAND Malaysia!
