The steelworks unveiled today gives a glimpse of what will be the main attraction at the theme park. The LEGO TECHNIC Test Track rises to 20 metres above ground level and it will be along the first roller coasters built for young children at the park. The colourful carts of the ride will race through the sharp twists and turns of the test track. The highest point the track will give ride-goers a bird’s eye view of the impressive LEGOLAND landscape and the breathtaking views of Iskandar Malaysia.
Providing more insights into the LEGO TECHNIC Test Track redefines the roller coaster experience for everyone. It is specifically desgined for families who want to enjoy the thrills of being on a roller coaster together. To us at LEGOLAND, we want the little ones to have the experience and to feel included in all the fun and excitement that comes with the theme park.
The LEGOLAND experience underscores the need for entertainment and education. Having fun while playing and exercising a child’s imagination and creativity is a critical component to healthy development.
