They’re going off the rails on this Lego train.

When a “walking pace train ride” derailed at the yet-to-be-opened Legoland Malaysia, security from the park reportedly did everything in its power to prevent one visitor from photographing the incident, Relax.com reports. As you can see below, they failed.

"Security prevented me from taking photos and wanted me to delete them from my camera,” writes GeneralStomp, the alias of the visitor who took the photo, on discussion site MyCarForum.com. “Their desire to shut the public social media out made me want to share it all the more,” the visitor added.

The hiccup is indeed somewhat of an embarrassment, but Legoland officials are playing it down, pointing out that “no one was injured in the incident” in a statement quoted on Relax.com.

The park is set to open September 15th and will be the first of its kind in Asia, but it isn't the first Legoland to ignite controversy over dealings with its guests. Most recently, Legoland Florida issued an apology to a mother of three after staffers asked her to move while she was breastfeeding.
