This is the second Snapshot of a series of short and sweet articles about great places and cool activities we find too good not to share with you. Today’s Snapshot is about Sea Life Legoland Malaysia, which opened a few months ago. Mamasun was at Legoland for the launch of World Friendship Day Lego Friends in July. This gave her the opportunity to visit the newly open Sea Life Malaysia. Read her story below!
What can kids do at Sea Life?
There are 2 floors at Sea Life Malaysia, so if you come with a pram you will need to use the lift, or carry your pram and walk the stairs. We came across a short passage where they’d put a couple of devices with interactive games for the kids to explore.
I would imagine if it is a peak season, you will hardly have a chance to try them, unless you are willing to wait.
There is a rock pool where you can touch star fish, sea cucumber and some bright orange coloured shrimps. Make sure you wash your hands before and after the rock pool.
We loved the stingray pools where you can watch the stingrays dance! I also must mention the Amazing Creations, as my kids spent at least 30 minutes there.
In this area you can choose a sea life template, colour it, scan it and see it appear on the big screen on the wall.
The jellyfish tank is pretty and has colourful lights, but it’s nothing to shout about. There is a tunnel though, yay! We were excited, however it’s not a tunnel like the one in KLCC Aquaria.
Why is it good?
What I like about Sea Life Legoland Malaysia is the displays, which are very ‘child-friendly’. They are either very visible and large or at average children height, so kids can easily view the sea life. You won’t hear your child screaming at you: “I cannot see, carry me!” I also liked the staff, who were very friendly and happy to give information.
Overall, I think it is a nice place to pop into, if you have an hour or 2 to kill or you have bought the combo tickets. The kids definitely had a pretty good time there.
Tips for a succesful visit:
I advise to purchase the combo tickets with the park, as the ticket at Sea Life costs MYR 95 for an adult and MYR 74 for children aged 3-11.
