LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort has unveiled a series of life-size LEGO Frontliner Murals as a tribute to the admirable contributors in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. Adding to its colourful surroundings, the stunning creations will be displayed at LEGOLAND Theme Park to inspire visitors and Malaysians at large to remember their merits for the nation.
Initiated by the resort’s employees with the help of the Malaysian LEGO Building community, a total of five murals were completed in 9 days using over 150,000 pieces of LEGO bricks. Wow, that’s impressive!
These inspiring displays depict portraits of frontliners who have dedicated themselves to ensure safety and restore the lives of Malaysians, including doctors, medical practitioners, government officials, policemen, and the armed forces.
Not to forget, the murals also feature various essential workers from delivery riders to cleaners and media personnel!

In addition to the murals, we have given 3,000 park access tickets to frontliners from government departments such as the Johor State Government, Royal Malaysian Police Johor , Malaysian Armed Forces, Fire and Rescue Department Johor and the Johor State Health Department.
