Legoland Water Park Malaysia Review

Last Updated 22/09/2020.

We were lucky enough to be able to visit the brand new Legoland Water Park Malaysia near Johor Baru just a couple of weeks after it opened. We spent the previous day at Legoland Malaysia (review here) and loved it , time for round 2, a day of splashy, wet family fun in the tropical heat of southern Malaysia. A Legoland water park review, from us, a family who loves to travel and spend time in theme parks.

We stayed at little hotel near the parks ( review here), the Lego site is a long way out of Johor Baru, we’d recommend you do the same. You can check here for current Warm Blanket Hostel prices and availability for the absolute best value accommodation, we used this place and would use it again. If you’re looking for something mre upmarket, you can find a few recommended hotels near Legoland in this post.

Could the new water park measure up to the fun we had at Legoland?

Review of Legoland Water Park Malaysia

I’m not a thrill seeker, I’m a bit of a coward when it comes to plummeting at great speed towards my doom. I also get nervous about my kids going on big rides, I’m a worrier, but we didn’t have that problem here at all.

The water slides have been thoughtfully designed for a family crowd, the big rides were plenty big enough to be exciting for the kids and me, but nothing terrifying. We went on all of the rides, again and again. It was perfect!

The park isn’t huge but it’s a good size. It wasn’t so big that we got lost or found ourselves miles from our locker. It was pretty much spot on for us.

There is a good choice of rides and slides, you can wiz around on mats, boats and rubber rings as well as float genteelly in the large wave pool or on the build-a-raft river. Legoland have life jackets to give out to non-swimmers in the wave pool.

Wait times weren’t bad and there were plenty of lifeguards to keep an eye on everything.

There is food in the park, gloriously junky. More of those gloopy cheesy potato wedges for me please! Like Legoland, the water park sells Ribena, we’ve all re-discovered how good Ribena is thanks to Lego.

Mmm…cheesy junk food!

At the centre of the park is a huge children’s water play area, possibly the biggest I’ve ever seen. My boys ( 7 and 9) spent hours in there. It would be absolutely fine for smaller children under supervision. There are small slides, water squirters and, of course, the giant Lego bucket of doom! We loved that having gallons of cold water poured over our waiting heads every few minutes.

Our Tips For Visiting Legoland Water Park Malaysia

Lots of sunblock and keep reapplying. We were there on a really cloudy day and still the children went home with red faces. They kept swiping at their eyes to get rid of water and took most of their sunblock off at the same time.I didn’t realise until it was too late. There’s not much shade, but you can hire little shade cabanas for the day.

You don’t have to leave shoes in your locker, you can take flip-flops into the park, it’s less slippery in shoes than in bare feet. There are racks to stash shoes near some of the rides.

If you have a nylon/lycra rashie, wear it. Some of the lifeguards didn’t like my son’s cotton top, he had to take it off occasionally. You’ll be fine in tight nylon. When choosing attire for Legoland Malaysia, think about the sun and pick accepted fabrics for swimming pools, there was some confusion over this when we were there, new employees weren’t adequately trained in swim attire recognition.

Think about who’s finger prints you’ll use to open the locker. The same person will be going to the locker each time. I tried to unscrew my hand and give it to the husband so he could go, but it just didn’t work!

Some surfaces are slippery under foot, walk carefully and keep a close eye on your children.

It Was a Fabulous Day Out!

As with all the Lego parks, the theming is fantastic, we love all the little Lego touches. It’s a great water park for a family audience and that, as with Legoland next door, is exactly what they’ve set out to achieve. It’s not about parents watching kids have fun, the whole family has fun here. Well done Lego!

Would it suffice to just spend half a day in the water park?
