Legoland announces new theme park for 2013 in Malaysia

Following the announcement earlier this year of a new Legoland in Dubai, this week Merlin officials announced that a sixth Legoland park will be built in Malaysia. The $200-million theme park will be built across from Singapore, as part of the multi-billion-dollar Iskandar Development Region in Malaysia's Johor state.
Merlin will own 20 percent of the park, though it will design it and operate it. The park is scheduled to open in 2013.
Update: Interesting local reaction. In short, people not happy. They wanted Disney instead.
