LEGOLAND CALIFORNIA INVITE CHILDREN TO TAKE PART IN A ‘LEGOLAND BUILDING CHALLENGE’

 BY GABRIELLE

In a drive to help families find fun and educational things to do while at home during the ongoing pandemic crisis, Legoland California are inviting kids to participate in a ‘Legoland Building Challenge.’

Each Wednesday, the theme park announces an instructional video that includes a new theme that youngsters are to build around. The videos are hosted by a Master Model Builder. Every Friday, Legoland California highlights the Lego builds posted by followers on the park’s social media pages. The resort also asks participants what they would like to build next.

Kurt Stocks, general manager of Legoland California, said: “So many children are missing out on birthday parties and celebrating their birthday at the park, so we thought a birthday theme seemed fitting as our inaugural build.”

As well as the building challenge, children are invited to take part in trivia, colouring in, word games and more.

The activities are available at the Legoland Building website and are free for everyone to take part in.

LEGO MOVIE WORLD TO DEBUT IN LEGOLAND CALIFORNIA ON APRIL 1

 BY GABRIELLE

April 1, 2020 will see the highly anticipated debut of Lego Movie World at Legoland California in Carlsbad.

The opening of the new, two-acre Lego Movie World will be the biggest transformation Legoland California will have undergone in its history.

Lego Movie World is aimed at young families, with the action taking place in Duplo Village and Heartlake City.

One key attraction of the new world is Emmet’s Flying Adventure, a triple-decker “flying” couch, which soars under a domed virtual screen that omits sensory experiences, including the spraying of saltwater, sweet smells and glitter.

Another focal attraction is Unikitty’s Disco Drop, a tower ride which features a 30-foot descent. Space fans will also be at home with Benny’s Play Ship, a 40-foot-tall space-themed playground structure with slides and more.

Other highlights of Lego Movie World include the Queen Whatevra Wa’nabi’s Carousel and Emme’s Super Suite, where guests can meet-and-greet much-loved characters from the Lego movies.
