Fun for young kids at Iskandar, Malaysia (Part 2 of 4) – LegoLand Water Park

We got our free tickets to Legoland Water Park by renewing our Legoland annual pass. Water park definitely sounds attractive given that our weather is so hot here. So we needed to check it out.

There is a separate entrance to the water park from the theme park. The entrance is near to the Legoland Hotel as well and you can get tickets there. There’s is less queue over here. 

The website ticketing says children from 3 years old onwards need to get a ticket but actually, under 3 years old is also chargeable, although at only 10 RM. But they give you 2 pieces of swim diapers! Good move to make kids still on diapers to wear a swim diaper! And in case you forgot to bring yours, you also need not worry. 

After getting the tickets, there’s a flight of stairs leading to the park, lucky we didn’t bring the stroller!

Then you’ll see the lockers and changing room. You can leave all your belongings here before proceeding to have fun in the park

You can wear your shoes to the main park area, unlike AdventureCove at RWS, Singapore.Good news because you don’t have to walk barefooted on the scorching, rough grounds around the park. Slippers and footwear not allowed at AdventureCove! Major boo! You can then deposit your footwear at the crowded shoe racks all around the park.

The park was mainly opened when we went, but there’s this toddler area that was under renovation which looked just like the place for our kids. We really wish it was open for play that day!

And the fun begins!

Build a Raft River

There are lots of safety life vest of different sizes right at the entrance here so  it’s easily available for everyone. And because this is the only entrance/exit to the river, if you miss it, you will need to go another round. On a crowded day you might have to wait patiently for a rubber float to come by. The one we have at Adventure Cove have lots of different exits, so usually people just jump into the river and swim/float/splash in the river to get to the next ride. The floor was simply too hot to walk on!

I think I can say we love this river the most because we went 3 rounds in it and almost Nic still wanted more. It’s a no-brainer ride. Just hop in and ride and collect Legos on the way. It’s a nice cooling ride under the hot sun. 

Imagination Station

This station should attract the young kids mainly. You just shoot water and collect Legos around the pool and splash around. It’s a bit too high for Nat, so we didn’t stay here for long. Too tiring carrying her and play. This station is supposed to stimulate the kids imagination where they build lego structures and see whether they can withstand the flow of the water, but everyone just enjoy spraying water anywhere. It’s fun this way too

This must be 1 of the main highlight of most people. We tried it and it was really cold when you first get in, so be prepared. It was also not that suitable for our girls yet as there were lots of tunnel slides leading to a pool of water. Nat was adventurous and wanted to try but Daddy held her back as I was somewhere else with Nic, so couldn’t help to look out for Nat at the other end of the slide. Most people would sit under the huge bucket just as it’s about to be filled up and wait for it to splash with really powerful force. We couldn’t run far enough away from it. 😛

Lego Wave Pool

Then we explored the Wave pool. I think the wave pool here is less interesting than ours at Adventure Cove. The wave was rather weak and there was not strong times. Just remained the same strength throughout.

Meanwhile at Adventure Cove, we can bring in their big floats , sit in it and ride the waves. Its super fun!  

If you or the kids are getting tired, you can actually rent 1 of these cabanas for a rest. The idea is cool but the price is not cheap. It’s 150MYR for half a day of rental.

The rest of the rides weren’t suitable for the kids at all. Look at the height of those slides

We’ll probably freak out even if they dared to ride

We were glad that we went in with free tickets as our kids were not able to take most of the rides and those that they could do, we can find them at our water playgrounds here too. So for now we’ll probably just stick to our Legoland theme park annual pass.
