We went to Legoland California again last week and they were in heaven. Legos, Legos, everywhere you turn. Their eyes get so big looking at the creations and imagining what they would build if they had access to the millions of Legos that make up the creations around the park. Not to mention the fun rides, shows, and water park. There were quite a new features since we were last there a year ago – new Star Wars scenes in Miniland; the Pirates Cove water area was going and soaking visitors with all their fun activities; the new Chima line had a fun 4-D show to watch plus snap a picture with one of the characters.
But the most exciting addition to Legoland California is the Legoland Hotel that just opened the first weekend of April. My kids have a stay there on their “must-do” list in the near future. Even though we only live 30 minutes from Legoland, they are determined to convince us to stay at the hotel. And I have to admit, it does look like a lot of fun for the kids. They have themed rooms – Pirate, Adventure, and Kingdom – to choose from with a queen-size bed for the adults, plus semi-private sleeping areas for the kids with a bunk bed and pull-out trundle bed to sleep 3. My boys could not decide which room they would want to sleep in; they all look so fun! And each room has an in-room treasure hunt plus bricks to build with!
And if you ever leave the fun of your room, you will find interactive Lego features throughout the Hotel. Additionally, the kids will love the pool and play areas, and the kid-approved buffet restaurant.
Just from the view of the hotel on the outside and watching the video presentation about the hotel, one of my sons asked, “How much would it cost to live there?” The Legoland California Hotel is almost a destination within itself! But guests get to go into the park before it opens, so be sure to enjoy both. Your Lego-lover is sure to have a blast at the new Legoland California Hotel. Come on, Summertime!
