For the first time ever, Legoland Malaysia Resort transforms all three of its theme parks into a world of racetracks, making way for the all-new “Build The Thrills” festival.

The event marks one of the largest partnerships between Lego and Legoland Malaysia Resort, designed for visitors to embrace the love of speed, cars, fun, imagination, and of course, Lego.

Until June 26, visitors get to enjoy the festival, which brings together a list of buzzing activities and entertaining shows to keep everyone’s engines roaring with excitement, including a chance to witness and take photos with the iconic scaled-up Lego Ferrari 512 M model.

Weighing a whopping 280kg, at 2700x1200x700 mm, the life-sized 3D version took 164 hours of design and development and another 480 hours to build with 78,496 bricks.

Guests can also flex their creativity and imagination to build, test and race the Lego vehicles of their dreams.

It is one of the most anticipated events of the year for children, for its live shows, meet and greets with Lego characters, special appearances and activities such as Track Attack and stunt shows.

The best part about Build The Thrills - sneak peeks of Lego characters such as Emmet, Wyldstyle, Wizard, Mariachi, and Bricky are scattered throughout all three theme parks to make way for their special appearances at certain hours of the day.

Kids can go for a meet and greet with the Lego racers - the Technical Builder, the Speed Champion, and the City Racer - all while looking out for unique Lego vehicles in each theme park.

Depending on how lucky you are (or how closely you follow the itinerary), you may be able to catch a glimpse and dance along to live performances by all five of the Lego friends, Olivia, Andrea, Emma, Mia, and Stephanie.

This time around, the Lego friends are all geared up in their brand new racing outfits and ready to go on their bikes, scooters, and cars for Vehicle Parade, followed by a new dance specially choreographed and prepared for Build the Thrills.

“Every activity we have curated for the festival at Legoland Malaysia Resort was done with passion.

“We want to create memorable moments for kids and their families as they spend quality time together and learn through play,” said Legoland Malaysia divisional director CS Lim.

Guests can look forward to a fresh and enhanced experience on popular attractions within the theme park. This includes the all-time favourite Driving School, featuring a wider variety of vehicles safe for children to drive and a chance to earn the "Best Driver Medal".

Those who wish to take the challenge up a notch can drop by the "Lego Mindstorms" zone for a series of STEM-based workshops, robotic maze racer, as well as building and testing a vehicle using "Lego Technic".

Besides that, a limited edition car dinner plate will be available during the entire event, where kids meals will be served at both the Food Truck and The Cafe.

“As children return to schools after a prolonged break, the event complements learning through play by enabling an immersive build experience, unleashing their imagination and stimulating their creativity.

“At Build The Thrills, we are generating both exciting and creative experiences such as pit stop building activities and testing centres, allowing children to embrace expressing themselves while interacting with others,” he added.
