Visitors to Legoland Malaysia theme park will be greeted by Asia’s first ever Lego Christmas tree.
The Christmas tree adorned with ornaments, is made entirely out of 427,695 Duplo Lego bricks and weighs a total of 6,057kg.
Legoland Malaysia’s installation leader Libor Udzral said that a crew of 20 put together the Christmas tree model in Czech Republic before the parts were shipped to Malaysia and assembled here.
“The tree is designed to withstand the wind, heat and rain because there is actually a steel frame in the middle supporting the tree,” he said during the unveiling of the tree here yesterday.
Udzral added that the three storey tall tree is decorated with 260 ornaments such as snowflakes, pretzels, candy canes, bells and snowmen as well as more than 100 LED candles, which are all made of Lego.
“The Christmas tree here is the third one after similar ones at Legoland in California and Florida and it is also the tallest one among them,” he said.
Udzral also said that there will be a tree-lighting ceremony tomorrow evening.
In conjunction with the festive period, the theme park’s operating hours would be extended to 8pm so that visitors have a chance to take photos with the tree when it is lit up.
