The kids were up at 7am. I did not sleep well either. Like what I told Mr H and our friends, the price tag of the room was for a 5-star hotel, the hotel facade seemed like a 4-star hotel but the actual rating was a 3-star. The bed and pillow were rather poor quality. Even the toilet bowl was shaky.
However, the decor appealed to the kids and they really loved it.
With the convenience of the location, i had to say I would probably stay in the Legoland Hotel again despite my grouses about the bed.
When we woke up, it was raining. Z was stunned and upset to see that.
The solemn moment as the boy watched the rain fell over the park
However, the rain cleared by 8am!
We headed down for breakfast. The selection was modest but the Asian cuisine was pretty good.
As hotel guests, we could enter the park earlier at 930am. However, only the Lego city section which we had covered the day before was opened. The kids got to drive at the Driving school again and repeat some of their favorites while their younger brothers hung out at the Miniland.
The boys played with the Wave Rider and Z had to sit out two rides in this area as he could not fulfill the minimum height requirement. He had brooded over it, especially when his bestie was able to go on the rides.
We popped over to the Kingdom area where Z took the mini roller coaster. Though he could take the main roller coaster, he chose to give it a miss. There was a magic show and the boys caught the entire performance. We completed another two rides before heading to the pizza restaurant at Duplo city.
Post lunch, we caught a 4D movie. The 3D effects were good but there was too much cold water sprays which got X very upset and he bawled in the theatre.
The boys played Kid’s Power Tower (second time for Z) and the poor boy suffered rope burns because the daddies were racing to see who reached the top first.
Thankfully the Lego Build Test centre was nearby. I still could not quite believe we spent 1.5hours to play Lego!
I built 2 Lego race cars for Z and X. Mr H also built 2 more race cars for Z.
We finally left at almost 4pm and spent another 30min shopping in the Lego store. We bought a 1600-brick box for RM259. It seemed like a fair deal because the others were a lot more expensive and we had not seen this option at general retail.
We rushed back to the room and changed the boys for the water park. That was the beauty of staying near the park. The younger boys only played at the junior water playground and the “Build A raft” stream while the older boys conquered the water rides all over again.
By 6pm, the boys took in the “Lego bucket” splash and we were hustled out of the water park. We changed the boys out of the swimsuit and went back to Legoland again. We played and shopped till the last ride stopped operations at 7pm.
We truly played hard.
We rounded up dinner at Manhattan Fish Market. We washed up and it was our turn to pop down to our friend’s room which had a pirate theme.
We spread the blanket for the boys to play and snack
It was midnight when we concluded our card games of Bridge and Big Two.
Z and X slept till almost 9am the next day. We were horrified by the number of people at the hotel’s breakfast. It was an indication of the surge in crowd.
Thankfully we were checking out and had the tiny hotel pools to ourselves.
These kids were such great pals that they had fun together nonetheless. We checked out at 12pm and had lunch at Secret Recipe before our driver came to fetch us home.
Look who we bumped into
X was tired and cranky on the way home. The boys were still in high spirits. They continued to play and sing in the car on the way home, so much so that X was hoo-haa-ing along to the songs.
The short holiday was definitely a blast.
