The latest in the Warner Bros.

LEGOLAND California Announces New LEGO City: Deep Sea Adventure Ride and 4D Ninjago Movie

LEGOLAND California

Earlier today, I was invited to LEGOLAND California for some big announcements for the park coming in 2018. The main attraction announced was the LEGO City: Deep Sea Adventure which is slated to open summer 2018. General Manager of LEGOLAND California, Peter Ronchetti, stated that the attraction is the park’s largest ride investment and it’s the first of its kind in North America. The ride is a 12 person submarine that takes you on a 4 minute journey though a 300,000 gallon aquarium that is filled with sea life including stingrays, sharks, and other fish.

Another thing that was announced for LEGOLAND California is a new 4D experience movie called LEGO Ninjago: Master of the 4th Dimension. There wasn’t much information about this movie but it does show the ninjas in their Hands of Time outfits.

Finally, Ronchetti talked about the new Castle Hotel that will be opening in spring 2018. Construction is well underway with the first level already completed and they’re working on the next level. There will be 200 new job openings for the Castle Hotel and for those interested in applying, you can head over to http://jobs.legoland.com/ for more information. The hotels will start taking reservations in September.

CARLSBAD, Calif. (August 24, 2017) – LEGOLAND® California Resort’s General Manager Peter Ronchetti announced at today’s press conference that 2018 will be a year of enormous growth! In January, a new 4-D movie launches, followed by the opening of LEGOLAND® Castle Hotel in the spring and, just announced, LEGO® City Deep Sea Adventure submarine ride is opening in the summer! LEGO® City Deep Sea Adventure is Merlin Entertainment’s single largest investment in any LEGOLAND® Park and will take passengers aboard a real submarine where they will be submerged underwater and immersed in an ocean habitat.

“I’m extremely excited for our guests to experience LEGO City Deep Sea Adventure submarine ride,” said Ronchetti. “For the first time in the United States, we are bringing our guests onboard a real submarine where they’ll go underwater to discover a truly amazing world filled with more than 2,000 different real sea animals, including several species of stingrays and a variety of exotic sharks.”

The ride will open in summer of 2018 and takes guests on a submarine ride looking for lost treasure on a sunken LEGO shipwreck. Among the real sea animals are bright LEGO octopi, marine tropical fish and LEGO scuba divers. Touchscreens at each porthole inside the sub are used by guests to help the LEGO minifigure dive team identify gems, pearls, LEGO gold coins and more throughout the journey. Up to 12 guests will board one of eight submarines that are designed after the LEGO City Deep Sea Adventure line of toys.

The summer exploration ride is opening shortly after LEGOLAND Castle Hotel opens in the spring of 2018. “We are excited to expand our LEGOLAND kingdom with LEGOLAND Castle Hotel, not only for the new adventures it will bring to our guests, but also the new jobs it will create for the community,” said Ronchetti. Ronchetti announced the hiring will start today for 200 new Model Citizens (employees) to work at new premium themed 250-room hotel. Thirty leadership roles are needed including Head Chef, Front Office Manager and Food and Beverage Manager. “We’ll be starting to recruit the other positions as early as December as we’d like to have everyone royally trained and ready to go by the Hotel’s opening in spring!” Some of the positions needed include cooks, valet, housekeepers, entertainers and more. Interested individuals can visit http://jobs.LEGOLAND.com/.

LEGOLAND Castle Hotel will feature three room themes: Knights and Dragons, Magic Wizard and Royal Princess. Bookings for LEGOLAND Castle Hotel begin in September. For more information, visit: www.LEGOLANDVacations.com.

Also opening in 2018: “LEGO® NINJAGO® – Master of the 4th Dimension” starting Jan. 12 in the LEGO® Showplace Theater. The short film combines dazzling 3D computer animation with 4D real-world effects offering guests the chance to go on an amazing new adventure with their favorite ninjas: Kai, Jay, Cole, Zane, Lloyd, Nya and Master Wu.

LEGO City Deep Sea Adventure submarine ride and LEGO NINJAGO – Master of the 4th Dimension are both included in the cost of admission to LEGOLAND California Resort.

LEGO Ideas Old Fishing Store (21310) Available at LEGOLAND California

If you can’t wait for the LEGO Ideas Old Fishing Store (21310) to become available at LEGO Stores and on [email protected], you may want to head on over to LEGOLAND California if you live close to it. I’ve been told that they have it for sale early at The Big Store. It’ll officially be released on September 1 and there are some The LEGO Ninjago Movie promos but there’s also a chance that it’ll sell out very quickly so you’ll have to weigh the pros and cons of getting it at LEGOLAND.

Thanks to Charlie for the heads up.

The LEGO Ninjago Movie Sets Available at LEGOLAND California

We’re still a few weeks away from the official release of The LEGO Ninjago Movie sets but if you’re near LEGOLAND California, you can get your hands on them a little early. A user over on Reddit has found that LEGOLAND has already started putting out some of the sets including the Collectible Minifigures (71019).

If you’re nowhere close to LEGOLAND, don’t worry as they should start hitting store shelves at major retailers very soon. We’ll be reviewing all of the sets once they are available so stay tuned for that as it should be a very exciting time.

LEGOLAND California Expanding in 2017

Earlier today, LEGOLAND California announced the park will be expanding next year and in the next few years. The first thing that was announced by General Manager Peter Ronchetti was that the LEGOLAND Hotel will be having LEGO Ninjago themed rooms which will open in Spring 2017.

Speaking of the themed rooms, the Kingdom themed rooms at the hotel have become so popular that LEGOLAND will be building a new LEGO Castle Hotel. Construction will begin next year and will open in 2019 in front of the Sea Life Aquarium.

Probably the biggest news of the day, at least for me, is the expansion of the LEGO Star Wars Miniland. Opening in March 2017 just ahead of Star Wars Days, the area will have a new area for Episode VII: The Force Awakens. There will be six scenes from the first 30 minutes of the film including Kylo Ren’s capture of Poe Dameron at Jakku, Rey’s rescue of BB-8, and Poe and Finn’s escape from the Star Destroyer Finalizer. With an expansion at a limited space, The Force Awakens area will be replacing the Clone Wars Christophsis scene.

Finally, the water park will also be expanding with a new area called Surfer’s Bay. There will be a water slide with six lanes going 17 feet high and more than 100 feet of track. There will also be an area where water is sprayed up from the ground where kids can run through called the “spray ground.”

LEGO Star Wars Rebel A-Wing Pilot (5004408) Available at LEGOLAND California as Star Wars Days Promo

LEGO Star Wars Rebel A-Wing Pilot

A couple of weeks back, it was revealed that there was a new LEGO Star Wars Rebel A-Wing Pilot (5004408) minifigure polybag. There was no details on how to obtain it until today. My friend John was at LEGOLAND California today for Star Wars Days and one of the promotions in the shop was a free gift with purchase of $30 or more on any LEGO products which was the Rebel A-Wing Pilot.

As of this point, this weekend is the only way to obtain the minifigure that I know of so if you know any people who live close by to LEGOLAND California, you may want to ask them to pick it up for you. I’ll let you guys know if this polybag will be available anywhere else.
