Help set a record at Legoland

Each Lego mandarin orange is
assembled using 37 Lego bricks
Legoland Malaysia Resort will usher in the Year of the Goat, also known as Sheep or Ram in the Chinese zodiac, and celebrate Chinese New Year with guests this February.  This festive season, guests can expect to enjoy attractions like traditional lion and dragon dances and a range of unique experiences for the entire family.  For a start, guests are invited to join in the fun to build Lego mandarin oranges in an attempt to set the record for 1888 Lego mandarin oranges! 

Like mandarin oranges, Lego mandarin oranges also symbolize abundance and good fortune.  Each Lego mandarin orange is assembled using a total of 36 orange Lego bricks topped by one green brick as its leaf, making a total of 37 bricks.  Guests’ Lego oranges will be floated in the pond at the park entrance along with other Lego oranges in an attempt to set a record for the most number of Lego mandarin oranges built by park guests.  The number of Lego oranges will be counted and verified on March 6.

As Legoland Malaysia Resort wishes guests abundant good fortune in the Year of the Goat, guests are invited to write their wishes on wish cards that will be hung on trees at the park entrance.  Wishes may be in the form of festive greetings or a deep desire for a particular item.  The park will hang up every guest’s wish and on March 6, Legoland Malaysia Resort will announce the winner of one lucky wish!

“We continuously strive to be a one-stop destination for fun and unforgettable experiences and I can’t think of a better way to usher in the lunar new year than to enjoy the park’s festive activities and the excitement at the recently refurbished China Miniland cluster,” said Legoland Malaysia Resort Director of Operations, Casper Bonavent.

Master Model Builder, Stefan Bentivoglio, introduced the recently refurbished China Miniland cluster designed with the Great Wall of China as a backdrop to a magnificent structure that resembles the Forbidden Palace in Beijing.  

He pointed out new Lego models and special festive scenes like an auspicious greeting in Chinese and a mother presenting ang pau or fortune money in red packet, to a child.  He said the new Lego models of a dancing dragon and prancing lion, complete with drum troop in the front courtyard, are the handiwork of his colleague, Model Builder Yeo Hock Chai, better known as Bok.
