In 2024, Legoland California will celebrate its 25th anniversary with new attractions, entertainment and experiences for guests.
In the spring, the park will debut a new land, Dino Valley, with three rides and an interactive zone with a reimagined Dino Dig space and costume character meet and greets. And during the summer, families can experience North America’s first-ever Lego World Parade, exclusively at Legoland California Resort.
“As the first Legoland Park in North America, it’s remarkable to see how Legoland California’s legacy of play has inspired generations of families over the last 25 years,” says Kurt Stocks, president of Legoland California Resort. “I can’t wait to see what families discover, build, imagine and create with us in the year ahead.”
Dino Valley will be located near the entrance of the park and will feature three rides, a reimagined Dino Dig area and prehistoric fun. Highlights include:
Duplo Little Dino Trail: This four-seater ride journeys through the Lego Duplo Dino safari. Kids can use cameras to “capture” the dinosaurs and play hide-and-seek with them along the way.
Explorer River Quest: Embark on the river expedition to interact with Lego dinosaur models. Beware, you just might see a T-Rex!
Coastersaurus: Everyone’s favorite dinosaur ride will continue to bring guests through the prehistoric jungle of Lego dinosaurs. Circle around the 1,100-pound Brachiosaurus and whiz by the 10-foot-tall Parasaurolophus scavenging for food.
Interactive Dino Area: Dust off the dirt to reveal fossils in the Dino Dig area and meet and greet with all new characters.
The park’s new parade, slated to run throughout the summer, will include a Lego City Firetruck, a swashbuckling pirate ship and floats inspired by Lego Ninjago, Lego Friends, Lego City Deep Sea Adventure and Lego Duplo. Entertainers with glittering costumes will march hand-in-hand, dance and sing as the parade makes its way through the west side of the park.
“From the moment families step into Legoland California Resort, they’ll be immersed in a celebratory atmosphere, surrounded by special birthday décor and new experiences that all serve as a constant reminder of our 25-year legacy and the timeless wonder and appeal of the Lego brand,” says CEO of Merlin Entertainments Scott O’Neil.
