CARLSBAD, CALIF.-Legoland California is the first of three Legoland Parks to launch a new Star Wars Miniland area on March 31, 2011 with seven scenes comprised of 1.5 million Lego bricks. The most famous scenes from the six live-action Star Wars movies, as well as one from the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars are built in 1:20 scale and will appear in six displays.
Bucking the trend of other theme parks, Legoland saw growth in 2010 and reported its best year of attendance to date, according to General Manager Peter Ronchetti. Continuing expansion that now includes the main theme park, an aquarium, and a waterpark, all in one place in Carlsbad, has made the theme park a "stay all day" attraction.
Octopus Garden at Sea Life Aquarium; Splash Zoo at Legoland Water Park; a Lego Hero Factory Experience inside Legoland California and the re-launch of Park favorite Fun Town Fire Academy as Fun Town Police and Fire Academy all have been in the works and are set to open soon.
Legoland California is owned by Merlin Entertainments Group, the world's second largest visitor attraction operator with 69 attractions, 6 hotels and two holiday villages in 15 countries, across 4 continents. The theme park is located near the Flower Fields just off I-5. Legoland California is home to more than 60 rides, shows and attractions. Over at Legoland California's newest area, Land of Adventure, guests can uncover a lost kingdom and hunt for treasure using laser blasters. Pirate Shores offers five attractions, including the high seas action.
