Legoland California celebrates its 25th birthday in 2024, and that calls for presents and a party, namely the new Dino Valley and the North American debut of the Lego World Parade.
Earlier this fall, Legoland California announced Fairy Tale Brook would close at the end of October, and now we know its replacement. Cue the John Williams music, “Welcome, to Dino Valley…”
Dino Valley at Legoland California Resort
Dino Valley will open in spring 2024 right at the front of the park with new rides, a reimagined Dino Dig area, and lots of Lego-sauric fun. Attractions in the new Dino Valley include the Duplo Little Dino trail, Explorer River Quest, and Coastersaurus.
Coastersaurus is a Legoland classic, and the family-friendly roller coaster will continue to delight guests in the new Dino Valley. Families circle the 1,100-pound Lego Brachiosaurus and whiz past the 10-foot-tall Parasaurolophus scavenging for food.
The Duplo Little Dino Trail will be a new four-seater ride through a Lego Duplo dinosaur safari. The interactive attraction allows kids to use cameras to play hide & seek with dinosaurs and capture the creatures along the way.
Explore River Quest is a water ride where families will float through a prehistoric world filled with Lego dinosaur models. Along the way, kids should be alert as a T-Rex is rumored to be on the hunt.
Legoland has also reimagined their Dino Dig area where kids can dust off the dirt to reveal Lego fossils. This area will also become the spot where families can meet and greet all new dinosaur characters.
Lego World Parade
Dino Valley is not the only new addition coming to Legoland California. The park will add North America’s first-ever Lego World Parade in the summer featuring several floats, including a Lego City Firetruck, a swashbuckling pirate ship, and floats inspired by Ninjago, Lego Friends, Lego City Deep Sea Adventure, and Lego Duplo. Costumed entertainers will march, dance, and sing as the parade makes its way through the west side of the park all summer.
“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 Legoland California Resort President Kurt Stocks. “It’s a privilege for us to debut North America’s first-ever Lego World Parade in 2024, alongside our newest land, Dino Valley, where the past comes roaring to life in Lego form. I can’t wait to see what families discover, build, imagine and create with us in the year ahead.”
