JPO, Legoland expected to attract millions to Iskandar Malaysia
Wednesday, 11 May 2011 17:45
http://www.bernama.com.my/bernama/v5....php?id=585632

JOHOR BAHRU: Iskandar Malaysia is expected to attract millions of local and foreign visitors when its much-anticipated Johor Premium Outlets (JPO) and Legoland Malaysia open for business.

Iskandar Regional Development Authority chief executive, Ismail Ibrahim, said the RM149 million JPO was expected to open by year-end and Legoland Malaysia next year.

He said the JPO was expected to attract four million visitors during the first year of operation and Legoland Malaysia one million.

"JPO is targeting a wide range of shoppers, locals as well as those from South-East Asia," he told Bernama in an interview recently.

JPO is operated by Genting Simon Sdn Bhd, a wholly-owned unit of Simon Genting Ltd (SGL).

SGL in turn is a 50:50 joint venture between Azzon Ltd, a wholly-owned unit of Genting Plantations Bhd, and Premium Outlets, the outlet division of Simon Property Group.

Ismail said the 17.6-hectare JPO project has a gross built-up area of approximately 330,000 sq ft. It has a gross leasable area of 175,000 sq ft.

He said JPO, the first of its kind in South-East Asia, would have 80 to 90 stores.

"It will offer a wide selection of branded items such as designer fashions, sportswear, children’s wear, jewellery, shoes and fashion accessories at attractive discounts," he said.

There are 52 Premium Outlets in the US, Mexico, Japan and South Korea.

IDR Resorts, a unit of Iskandar Investment Bhd, is responsible for the development of the RM720 million Legoland Malaysia in partnership with Merlin Entertainments.

Some 15,000 model structures made from an estimated 30 million Lego bricks, along with over 40 interactive rides, shows and attractions, will be the main features at Legoland Malaysia.

Legoland Malaysia is the centrepiece of Medini Lifestyle, the lifestyle and entertainment hub in Medini Iskandar Malaysia which will also feature lifestyle retail mall, commercial developments and office buildings.

It is the first Legoland theme park in Asia and sixth worldwide.

Besides the Legoland, Ismail said, Themed Attractions and Resorts Sdn Bhd, together with HIT Entertainment Ltd and Sanrio Entertainment Ltd, were currently developing an indoor theme park, adjacent to Nusajaya's Puteri Harbour.

"Rides and entertainment centred on international children characters such as Barney and friends, Bob the Builder, Thomas and friends and Hello Kitty will be built there," he said.

Ismail said the concepts of other theme parks were still under study to ensure viability and continuity of development. — Bernama

JOHOR BAHARU: Legoland Malaysia is projecting its nearly-completed theme park to attract a million visitors during its first year of operation.
Its general manager Siegfried Boerst said the theme park will be officially opened in the second quarter of this year.

“We are looking at more than one million visitors for the first 12 months of operation, and we hope it increases all the time,” he told reporters after the unveiling of Legoland Malaysia’s dragon mascot made entirely of Lego bricks called ‘Ollie The Dragon’ at Thistle Hotel here yesterday.

The model took 50-man hours to build from approximately 10,000 Lego bricks.
Boerst said construction of the RM700 million theme park is progressing well despite the rainy season affecting Johor, adding he is confident it will be completed on time.

Legoland Malaysia, he said, is planning public relations activities in Malaysia and several other East Asian countries including Singapore and Indonesia leading up to the theme park’s official opening, adding it is also developing Johor as a tourist destination.

On the Annual Pass ticket sales, he said Legoland Malaysia is very happy with the response, with its counters selling more than 300 passes daily, with Malaysians making up 80 per cent of the buyers, although the operator is hoping to attract more Singaporean buyers.

“We have registered several thousand Annual Pass sales, and we intend to keep it open for a few more weeks,” he said.

The annual passes, sold at a discounted price of RM195 (Adult) and RM150 (Children), are valid right into the end of 2013.

Tickets are available online through the AirAsia RedTix and Legoland Malaysia websites.

Legoland Malaysia, the world’s sixth Legoland and Asia’s first, is located in Iskandar Malaysia and will feature more than 40 interactive rides, shows and attractions when it opens.

Other Legoland theme parks across the world are in Denmark, the United Kingdom, Germany and Florida and California in the USA. — Bernama

Legoland M’sia annual passes still on offer
Posted on March 19, 2012, Monday
http://www.theborneopost.com/2012/03...#ixzz1pYqDA365



STILL ON OFFER: Siegfried standing among Legoland ‘friends’ in Singapore.
On its opening day, Legoland Malaysia will be packed full of more than 40 rides,
shows and attractions over an impressive area of 76 acres.


KUCHING: Since the launch of the pre-opening promotional annual passes in December 2011, Legoland Malaysia has received positive response from the public on the sale of these annual passes.

To date Legoland Malaysia, which is especially designed for families with children from two to12 years of age, has sold over 10,000 passes and this number is set to rise. However, the offer of the special discounted rate for the annual passes will only last for a very limited period until April 16.

“We have received fantastic response from families and Legoland enthusiasts since we started the promotion in December 2011. Over the last few months, Legoland Malaysia has sold well over 10,000 annual passes, with approximately 60 per cent of them being sold in Malaysia and 40 per cent in Singapore.

“We experienced a high demand from many Singaporean families we met at the NATAS Fair last month who wanted to take full advantage of our special prices and are eagerly counting down the days to our park’s opening later on this year,” said Legoland Malaysia general manager Siegfried Boerst.

On opening day Legoland Malaysia would be packed full of more than 40 rides, shows and attractions over an impressive area of 76 acres, he revealed.

The park was divided into seven themed areas with each themed area designed to ensure that heroes of all ages would find much to explore and enjoy at the Lego experiment centres, roller coasters, water attractions and shows.

Located in Nusajaya, Legoland Malaysia was just a 10-minute drive from the second link connecting Singapore to Johor. Once completed, the park would be the sixth Legoland theme park in the world and first in Asia.

Management agreement signed to build Asia's first LEGOLAND Hotel

By Bernama
Tuesday, 24 April 2012 13:33

KUALA LUMPUR (April 24): Merlin Entertainments Groups has signed a management agreement with LL Themed Hotel Sdn Bhd to develop and build the LEGOLAND Hotel in Nusajaya, Johor — the first in Southeast Asia and the fourth in the world.

LL Themed is a 51-49 joint venture company between Destination Resorts and Hotels Sdn Bhd (DRH) with Iskandar Harta Holdings Sdn Bhd.

DRH managing director Nadziruddin Basri said: "We at DRH are focused in bringing new, innovative attractions to Malaysia's leisure and tourism offerings and to make Malaysia a destination of choice for both local and international travellers."

The hotel is set to heighten LEGOLAND Malaysia theme park's experience with its fun and interactive designs and facilities, he said in a statement.

Meanwhile, LEGOLAND Malaysia general manager Siegfried Boerst said the hotel was the first to be designed from a child's eye view and was scheduled to open for operations in the first half of 2014.

Dedicated to interactive family fun, the unique hotel will encourage families with young children to extend their visit to the resort and to take between two and three days to really enjoy more than 40 attractions in the theme park. — Bernama
