LEGOLAND Malaysia has kickstarted 2018 with the construction of its latest attraction: a Lego-themed aquarium resort called Sea Life Malaysia. The new resort is expected to its doors to keen marine enthusiasts by the end of the fourth quarter.
Brick-my-brick the resort will be built with the iconic children’s toy brand in mind and offer the ultimate experience of discovering the depths of the ocean through stunning and sometimes bizarre-looking marine life.
Sea Life Malaysia will have a total 25 aquariums, all of which containing fascinating sea creatures, from ferocious sharks to squidgy jelly-fish and bobbing seahorses to smiling stingrays. In total, there will be 11 habitat zones, all with different water temperatures, feeding schedules, and tank furnishings.

This addition to the theme park is coming at a crucial time, as the world’s oceans remain under threat from pollution and over-fishing. Never has it been so important to educate the future generations on the importance of the oceans.
They account for 97 percent of the planet’s water and absorb most of the carbon in the air, to give us oxygen to live.
This new development will give adults and children the opportunity to learn and rethink their living habits, to ensure no further damage is done to the ocean, but also have a lot of fun while doing so.
