Merlin will have 30% stake in Malaysian Legoland

Posted Monday, December 15, 2008 9:15 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Danish toy maker Lego will open a multimillion dollar Legoland theme park in southern Malaysia in 2013, the first such international amusement center in the region. The 750 million-ringgit ($210 million) park, based on Lego's colored plastic construction blocks, will be built in the Iskandar development zone in southern Johor state, a spokeswoman for the project said Monday. The park is a joint venture between Iskandar Investment Bhd., an investment holding company which coordinates the development in the zone launched in 2006, and theme park operator Merlin Entertainments.

Looks like I've now got a stopover point for my next trip to Australia :)

I would assume the others are on par, but the one in Carlsbad is a great little family park. I'm kind of cursing buying a Disney annual pass instead of one for Legoland. Legoland is a lot closer and I'm sure there aren't as many blackout dates.

Next year. :)
