New Measures in places at Legoland Malaysia
ISKANDAR PUTERI, 28 May 2020 – With the strong support from the government and frontliners, Malaysia has been making huge strides in handling the Covid-19 pandemic. As economic activities continue to resume in phases, many businesses and industries are preparing ahead to reopen while adjusting to a new normal that prioritises public health.
LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort is excited to present a glimpse of the new era for theme parks and resorts, where there can be a semblance of normality that guests can return to. LEGOLAND believes that the road to reopening starts with setting a new standard for safety and hygiene, before reinvigorating domestic travel by introducing attractive offerings with flexibility at core.
“Our goal is to keep everyone safe, including our LEGOLAND team and community. We have cautiously evaluated and set new protocols that will allow us to meet and exceed the guidelines put in place by the Ministry of Health. Once the Conditional Movement Control Order has been eased and theme parks are allowed to reopen, we will be ready to welcome our guests to the ultimate all-in-one destination for a fun and adventurous family vacation,” said C.S. Lim, Divisional Director at LEGOLAND® Malaysia Resort.
“The safety measures, flexible booking policies and promotional deals are critical as part of the move to revive domestic tourism while ensuring visiting families a balance between safety and leisure. As one of Malaysia’s leading holiday destination, we have a role to play in restoring and reenergizing the tourism industry, an important segment that will contribute to the nation’s economic recovery,” Mr. Lim added.
Ramping up Safety and Hygiene
Throughout the temporary closure, the resort has taken the opportunity to step up its preventative measures as it prepares to welcome guests back. Safety and hygiene will continue to be LEGOLAND’s top priority in the ‘new normal’. As such, guests will be seeing new measures during their next visit, including:
- Social distancing and crowd control
- Hygiene and disinfection protocols
- Enhanced cleaning and sanitization
Guests will still enjoy the unique LEGOLAND experience with peace of mind knowing that their families are in good hands at the resort.
“As much as we are excited to resume our operations, we will take the lead from the Malaysian government when theme parks are allowed to reopen. It is our responsibility to comply with the requirements and work closely with relevant authorities to ensure that our resort is safe for the public. As part of Merlin Entertainments, we have also been sharing and applying many learnings and best practices among our sister attractions in a collaborative effort to align ourselves with the highest level of compliance,” Mr. Lim concluded.
Reinvigorating Tourism by Extending Flexibility and Value
LEGOLAND is announcing a variety of attractive pre-opening ticket and accommodation offers where families can pre-book and plan for their next holiday. The promotions also come with extended validity period that is relatively longer than the usual packages. Some of the offers include:
