The other problem with the first Legoland park in Asia is that people don't seem to care. Yesterday, the park opened to some 10,000 visitors. It had more or less that number of soft-opening day last Sept 15 and about 11k on the second day. On the third, the number almost touched the 15,000-people capacity!
I didn't grow up with Lego but my youngest is a big fan and I suppose many Malaysians must have grown up with Lego. PM Najib Razak, who accompanied the Johor Sultan and Raja Zarith to the opening last night, seems to be one of them. And since none of his political opponents have raised any objection about the ambitiousness of "bring the world to Malaysia through Legoland", I suppose they, too, must love Lego!
This school holidays, general election or no, we plan to come to Legoland for the rides with our big fan. It's going to be hot but since when did that stop us from having fun when we were kids, right?
