Trying to find more things you can do in Johor Bahru (JB)? Now, you can add one more thing to your constantly-growing list.
Legoland JB has opened Sea Life Malaysia, a Lego-themed SEA Aquarium almost similar to Singapore’s S.E.A Aquarium. Especially useful for Singaporeans who want a short getaway but still interested in doing tourist-related activities.
Housed in a double-storey building right next door to Legoland, the new Sealife Malaysia aquarium lets you get up close to approximately 13,000 marine creatures – over 120 species spread out over 11 different habitat zones.
Play spot the Lego characters as you venture through the aquarium; they could be hiding in fish tanks or various nooks and crannies of the place.
The family-friendly attraction means you can introduce your young ones to the diverse marine life. In addition, the mini starfish petting zoo lets them visualise what Patrick from Spongebob Squarepants would look like in real life.
Why would you want to go all the way across the causeway just to see fish, you ask?
Well, for one, the interior is completely different from the one in Singapore. Curated to fit Malaysian culture, you can find hut shaped fish tanks in the Kampung House exhibit or study the life in the Malaysian rainforest in the Southeast Asian section.
It’s only an hour drive away from Singapore, however, if you’d like to spend the night to conquer the other Lego-themed attractions, it’s only fitting that you stay in the Legoland Hotel.
Legoland offers an Annual Double Park Pass which allows for access to the theme park and the aquarium for RM336 (approximately S$111) for adults and RM279 (approximately S$92) for children and senior citizens.
Another option if you’re a huge Lego buff, the Annual Triple Park Pass which includes access to the waterpark. Prices are RM371 (approximately S$122) and RM308 (approximately S$101) for the respective age groups.
A day ticket to the Legoland Aquarium (depending on the combination of parks) ranges from RM221 to RM313 (around S$73 to S$103).
I mean, they always said “there’s plenty of fish in the sea” so here’s one more aquarium to add to your repertoire of fish-ducation.
