Our family LOVES Legos, yet none of us have ever been to Legoland in California or Florida! I know, it’s ridiculous, right? For our California trip this October we’re hoping to visit there are check out all the fabulousness ourselves – until then, we can enjoy these Fun Facts about Legoland!
Any Star Wars lovers out there? It’s obvious we are, so we’re thrilled about the largest LEGO® Star Wars™ Miniland model display (so far) coming to the California resort! The Death Star is 8 feet wide and 13 feet high, weighing over 1900 pounds! Dang, I don’t want to lift that – but I sure can’t wait to SEE it!
My girl is a HUGE fan of LEGO Friends, so she’ll be thrilled to see LEGOLAND® California Resort’s newest area, LEGO® Friends Heartlake City! Heartlake City is based on the popular LEGO® toy line, LEGO Friends, which focuses on the adventures and lives of five girls: Andrea, Emma, Mia, Olivia and Stephanie. She’s going to love this area (along with all the others, too)!
Ten More Legoland California Facts:
1. There are more than 30,000 LEGO® models throughout LEGOLAND® California Resort created out of more than 60 million LEGO bricks.
2. The largest model is a giant dinosaur named “Bronty” created out of more than two million LEGO bricks and the smallest model is a pigeon on a building in Miniland Washington, D.C. which is made of a mere four LEGO bricks!
3. A Master Model Builder secretly hid a tiny LEGO brick mouse hidden in the belly of the lion in front of the MGM Grand in Miniland Las Vegas.
4. LEGOLAND California has more than 60 rides, shows and attractions including three rollercoasters. Coastersaurus, in Dino Island, is considered a “pink knuckle” coaster meaning children won’t get white knuckles from riding it, but will get excited enough for them to turn pink!
5. Behind the reception desk in the lobby at LEGOLAND Hotel, there is an entire wall created out of more than 5,000 LEGO Minifigures!
6. THE LEGO MOVIE EXPERIENCE at LEGOLAND California, which opens February 20, 2014, took a team of 10 Model Builders 2,000 hours (full time throughout 5 weeks) to build.
7. The marquee attraction in the new LEGO Legends of Chima Water Park presented by Cartoon Network is the Lion Temple Wave Pool where guests make their way through a LEGO lion archway as Mount Cavora releases 400 gallons of water every minute from 30-feet above the wave pool.
8. All Model Citizens (employees) at LEGOLAND California Resort will trade their mini-figures worn on their brick name badge with any young guest who requests it!
9. All of the freshwater fish living in SEA LIFE® Aquarium can be found in California lakes and streams, and the cold water marine animals are all native to the California coastline.
10. Pirate Reef, the only ride that can be accessed by both LEGOLAND Water Park and LEGOLAND theme park, holds 155,000 gallons of water as guests plummet down 25 feet between the 30-foot long pirate ships of Captain Red Brick and Captain Blue Brick.
BONUS FACT! LEGOLAND California Resort is part of Merlin Entertainments Group, the world’s second-largest visitor attraction operator with 99 attractions, eight hotels/holiday villages in 22 countries across 4 continents.
