Building Lasting Memories and Awesome Friendships at LEGOLAND® Malaysia Resort
The resort’s largest fun-filled Friendship Fest kicks off, emphasising the importance to connect and interact with friends
ISKANDAR PUTERI, 3 December 2021 – Theme parks ignite a certain joy for many people regardless of age, making visits a lifelong memory. As 2021 draws to an end, LEGOLAND® Malaysia Resort spotlights the celebration of friendship, presenting guests with a fun way to reconnect and share new experiences.
Taking on the theme “Largest Fun, Built on Friendship”, LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort’s Friendship Fest is set to begin on 3 December till 9 January with a list of fresh activities that is sure to keep everyone buzzing with excitement.
“Friendships are built to last, provided there are efforts to keep the connections going and enjoy special moments together. The months of isolation have made it difficult for children and adults alike to do all of that,” said CS Lim, Divisional Director at LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort.
He added, “LEGOLAND itself is a safe and excellent destination for children and families to spend quality and build awesome memories. By extending the Friendship Fest as our latest attraction, we want to bring different ways to help children rekindle drifted connections and make new friends, reminding them again the value of treasuring their BFFs.”
Childcare experts report that friendships are important for a child’s happiness, health, and development. Friendships benefit children by in many ways, including improving social skills as well as developing learning capabilities like collaboration, problem-solving, and communication.
All activities throughout the festival are designed to help them loosen up once again to play and interact with their closest friends and even make new ones. The event is themed around the LEGO® Friends TV show with its main characters – Mia, Emma, Olivia, Andrea, Stephanie – a super group of girls that are funny, smart, problem solving, fun, quirky, silly, sarcastic and are the kind to not take themselves too seriously. The group also embodies various personality traits, making it easy for anyone to relate and connect with.
This event marks one of the biggest partnerships between LEGO and LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort in recent times. The festival was designed for a journey of fun with colours, performances and even science experiments that entice senses while leaving nothing but a smile on our guests’ faces all day. It is truly an event that has something for everyone.
