After the successful, grand opening of LEGOLAND California Resort’s LEGOLAND Castle Hotel, it looks like the brick-inspired, family-centered theme park has now set its sights in adding a new, underwater twist. Starting this July, families and visitors at LEGOLAND California Resort will be treated to a unique, underwater adventure that includes an Interactive Treasure Hunt together with 2,000 real sea animals aboard 8 submarines that were inspired by actual LEGO City sets. Entitled as the LEGO City: Deep Sea Adventure Submarine Ride, the submarine itself features a touchscreen where passengers get to find gems and lost sunken treasure within a humongous 300,000 gallon tank.
Here’s the official press release, followed by a short video of the subs’ arrival at LEGOLAND California Resort.
GET READY TO DIVE! SUBMARINES FOR THE NEW LEGO® CITY: DEEP SEA ADVENTURE SUBMARINE RIDE AT LEGOLAND® CALIFORNIA RESORT HAVE ARRIVED!

CARLSBAD, Calif. (May 08, 2018) – LEGO® City: Deep Sea Adventure submarine ride is getting ready to take its maiden voyage this summer and the submarines have officially arrived at LEGOLAND® California Resort! Eight 22,000 pound submarines were unloaded and installed in the 300,000 gallon tank as construction continues on the interactive ride featuring real sharks, rays and fish. The family theme park’s newest ride is planned to open in July.
LEGO® CITY: Deep Sea Adventure submarine ride is Merlin Entertainments’ single largest investment for a ride in any LEGOLAND® Park. For the first time in the United States, LEGOLAND California Resort brings guests onboard a real submarine where they’ll go underwater to discover a truly amazing world filled with more than 2,000 real sea animals, including several species of stingrays and a variety of sharks. Through the use of touchscreens at each porthole inside the sub, guests can help the LEGO minifigure dive team identify gems, pearls, LEGO® gold coins and more throughout the four minute journey.
The submarine ride will be included in the price of admission this summer at LEGOLAND California Resort.
