Let’s say you’re a big company with arms in film/TV media and the amusement industry. You score a popular movie or TV series based on your brand or franchise; wouldn’t you get the idea of adding an attraction based on that media to your theme park?
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.
Near the end of April last month, we covered how the UK LEGOLAND theme park in Windsor celebrated the birth of Prince Louis, third child of Prince William and Kate, Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, with a Royal Baby presentation scene on a LEGO Buckingham Palace in their Miniland area.
In case you missed out on the festivities of the grand opening of the very first Castle-themed LEGOLAND hotel in North America, then you might want to check out this video uploaded by LEGOLAND California. Needless to say, it’s a sight to behold: with royal trumpeters announcing the opening of the hotel’s gates, nobel knights mounted on valiant steeds, a little knight and squire formally cutting the ceremonial ribbon, and a majestic hawk handing over the key to the Castle to the legendary Merlin.
It’s finally happening. The LEGOLAND California Resort will officially open its LEGOLAND Castle Hotel to welcome visitors beginning tomorrow Friday, April 27. This latest addition to the LEGOLAND franchise is the first of its kind in the US that follows the classic LEGO Castle theme which will engage the whole family in a magical world of brick-built dragons, magicians, and other kingdom royalties.
