Legoland Malaysia set for 2012 opening

The development of Legoland Malaysia in Iskandar Malaysia by IDR Resorts and Merlin E ntertainments is gathering momentum for its grand opening in 2012.

Datuk Syed Mohamed Syed Ibrahim, president and chief executive officer of Iskandar Investment Group and chairman of IDR Resorts, said next year would be a significant year for Iskandar Investment with the launch of completed projects
such as Legoland Malaysia under the company's first phase of development in Iskandar Malaysia.

"There will be more job opportunities for all," he said in a statement today.

He said RM200 million worth of contracts had already been awarded, and tourist receipts when Legoland Malaysia opens in 2012 would further boost the local and regional economy.

Iskandar Investment, he said, was committed to creating value for the community and driving Iskandar Malaysia's vision of becoming a sustainable metropolis of international standing.

IDR Resorts, a member company of Iskandar Investment, is responsible for the development of Legoland Malaysia in partnership with Merlin Entertainments.

Over 40 interactive rides, shows and attractions for the theme park are currently being fabricated for Iskandar Malaysia.

Creation of the 15,000 Legoland model structures at the Model Building Centre for Legoland Malaysia in the Nusa Cemerlang Industrial Park is also progressing smoothly.
