LEGOLAND® Malaysia Resort Ready to Welcome Families Back on 25 June
ISKANDAR PUTERI, 18 JUNE 2020 – LEGOLAND® Malaysia Resort has announced that it will reopen to families and visitors on the 25 June 2020. The reopening plan is in line with guidelines released by the Malaysian government and authorities following a host of relaxed restrictions across the country.
Families can once again immerse themselves in the awesome world of LEGO® at LEGOLAND Theme Park and LEGOLAND Hotel with new health, hygiene, and safety protocols in place. During this period, LEGOLAND Water Park will continue its temporary closure in adherence to the government’s directive.
“We know how much Malaysians have been looking forward to travelling again. At LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort, we have been planning and preparing for this opportunity to invite families back to our resort. We have in store a selection of promotions and packages that offer the convenience of an all-in-one destination while helping people stretch their vacation budget.” said Mr C.S. Lim, Divisional Director at LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort.
“Guests can expect to see new protocols and operational changes at the resort. Our hope is for the guests to feel reassured of safety and hygiene throughout their vacation, but nothing short of a fun, entertaining and adventurous experience with their loved ones,” C.S added.
Prioritizing Safety and Hygiene
Despite the implementation of safety protocols, guests will still be able to enjoy the unique LEGOLAND experience with peace of mind knowing that their families are in good hands at the resort. To provide the assurance to our guests, LEGOLAND has installed new facilities, processes, and manpower in line with the safety protocols and procedures, this includes:
- Social distancing and crowd control
- Limitation of capacity to 30% of normal operations
- Temperature screening and guest registration
- Hygiene and disinfection protocols
- Enhanced cleaning regimes
LEGOLAND’s parent company, Merlin Entertainments Group has had many successful reopenings around the world such as LEGOLAND Japan Resort, LEGOLAND Deutschland Resort, LEGOLAND Billund Denmark, LEGOLAND Florida, and SEA LIFE Shenyang which saw strict and consistent adherence to health and safety SOPs at the highest level. LEGOLAND Malaysia is ready to welcome visitors with the same guidelines in place, in addition to the necessary measures as required by the Ministry of Health. The full list of LEGOLAND’s safety measures is available on the official website.
C.S. explained, “During the temporary closure, our team has been working tirelessly to refresh our properties and train our employees in addition to implementing the health and safety protocols. We have also been sharing and applying many learnings and best practices among our sister attractions in a collaborative effort to align with the highest level of compliance. We are ready to play and make LEGOLAND a safe and memorable place for families again.”
Stimulating Tourism by Extending Flexibility and Value
LEGOLAND has also announced a variety of attractive and flexible offers where families can book ahead and plan for their next holidays. The promotions come with an extended validity period that is relatively longer than the usual packages. This is part of LEGOLAND’s effort to further support the government’s efforts to reinvigorate the tourism industry. Some of the offers include:
- 3-month extension for all Annual Pass – Valid for passes that have expired or are expiring between February – December 2020
- Limited Time Annual Pass Renewal – Annual Pass renewed from now onwards will be valid until December 2021
- Limited Time Free Hotel Stay – Book 1 night and get the 2nd night for free

LEGOLAND Malaysia upholds a long-term commitment in driving more visitors to experience Johor as a family-friendly holiday destination. We hope Malaysians will take full advantage of our flexible offerings,” said C.S.
