LEGO Movie World Opens at LEGOLAND California
Summer is here and Everything is Awesome! Streamers filled the air, sparklers burst into the sky and entertainers packed the stage at the Grand Opening for The LEGO Movie World at LEGOLAND California. Based on the blockbuster films The LEGO® Movie™ and The LEGO® Movie™ 2: The Second Part, the new land fully immerses guests into the LEGO movie universe and places them onto the streets of Bricksburg.
“We are so proud of this land because families aren’t just stepping into another brilliant, LEGO® filled world, but also into a popular world based on the huge film franchise that kids and parents love,” said LEGOLAND® California Resort President Kurt Stocks.
The land is the largest addition to the park and features six interactive attractions. Emmet’s Flying Adventure Ride is a crowd pleaser as riders hop aboard Emmet’s triple decker flying couch for a thrill-seeking adventure. Surrounded by a full-dome virtual screen, guests feel the sensation of flying above memorable lands such as Middle Zealand, Cloud Cuckoo Land, Pirates Cove and the Sistar System. You even smell different smells as you fly along. Along the way, riders will see some familiar faces including Sweet Mayhem, a star character from THE LEGO®MOVIE 2: The Second Part. Emmet’s Flying Adventure features cutting edge technology including a 180-degree turn in the ride experience.
Unikitty was quite the scene-stealer in the movie so it made perfect sense for her to have her own ride… Unikitty’s Disco Drop. The new ride launches guests to the top of Cloud Cuckoo Land, then drops, spins and bounces them back down to earth, creating a thrilling and fun experience. Perfect for the older kids and if you have little ones, Queen Watevra’s Carousel will be something you’ll definitely want to give a whirl.
When you want a break from rides, or the lines are too long, guests can explore Benny’s Playship, a fun play structure, splash in a splash pad or create at Build Watevra You Wa’Na Build zone. Or head on over to Emmet’s Super Suite, where you can meet Emmet and all his friends. There are also lots of great photo spots throughout Bricksburg for your family to create their own memories.
We are elated to partner with LEGOLAND California, a leader in kids and family entertainment, to bring THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD to the West Coast,” said Peter van Roden, SVP, Global Themed Entertainment for Warner Bros. Consumer Products. “This highly-themed, colorful land is faithfully inspired by the characters, adventures and landmarks made popular in THE LEGO MOVIE films, and we are proud to be extending our reach into another family friendly experience.”
Just as Stock mentioned, the movies and the park are family favorites with Risen and so when we attended the Grand Opening we got into the spirit from head to toe! We though it was only appropriate to wear Adidas x LEGO shoes. There are several different colors and styles to match your LEGO personality and the kids loved the LEGO details including, a LEGO® brick-inspired Torsion bar to support the midfoot. We got our LEGO shoes from Dicks Sporting Goods.
Emmet’s favorite show may be “Where are my pants?” but we certainly did not forget ours! Legoland is full of color so we knew we wanted to be too! Appaman is a favorite when it comes to unique, stylish and comfortable… from pinks and pineapples to yellows, reds, and colorblock inspired bricks, we fit right in with all the characters bringing cheer as we celebrated the Grand Opening of Lego Movie World at Legoland!
