It is that time of the year again when fans of Star Wars and LEGO collide at LEGOLAND Malaysia to celebrate all things from a galaxy far far away.
It is the 40th anniversary of Star Wars this year as well and LEGOLAND Malaysia is going all out by hosting the largest Star Wars Costume parade featuring over 100 costumed characters from the franchise.
Both the 501st Legion Malaysia and Singapore Garrison along with Cathar Base Singapura – Rebel Legion graced the park with a procession that started from the front entrance, ending at the Star Wars miniland.
The LEGO Star Wars Miniland has also been upgraded with costumed storytelling guides accompanying you as you tour the largest LEGO Star Wars display this side of Asia.
A tribute to Princess Leia in the form of a gorgeous LEGO Mural by the awesome Legolads was unveiled at the opening ceremony to honour the passing of actress Carrie Fisher.
There is also a little LEGOLAND Malaysia Star Wars activity sheet that you and/or your child can complete which will take you through the activities located around the park.
Kids can sign up for the Jedi Academy at the City Stage area where Jedi Masters instruct these young padawans in the ways of the Force and defeat LEGO Lord Darth Vader.
There is a free build activity in the Academy where you can construct pretty much anything and add it to the ever expanding world of LEGO Star Wars.
Pit yourself against other park patrons to be the fastest builder to construct a BB-8 out of 2×4 bricks. There are instructions so don’t worry and you don’t actually have to follow the same colour scheme but I did anyway.
Attend the LEGO Star Wars Miniland tour and you will get a stamp for your efforts which should complete the passport.
There are some questions on the back of the passport which should not be a problem for any casual Star Wars fan to answer.
Once you have completed , you will receive a stamp and once you have collected them all, you can submit the passport back at the “Build a Giant LEGO R2-D2” station to redeem a LEGO Star Wars poster, a couple of buttons and the exclusive LEGOLAND Malaysia Star Wars Day commemorative Duplo brick.
There are quite a few changes to LEGOLAND Malaysia to look forward to in the later part of the year. They will be unveiling brand new Ninjago themed rooms for the hotel resort as well as installing a new 4D roller coaster attraction.
There will also be a major addition to LEGOLAND Malaysia that will be ready only next year. I have been sworn to secrecy on what it is but I’m quite sure it will definitely be a welcome inclusion to the park.
See you all at the next event!
