Lego-loving families, rejoice! The Legoland Hotel at Legoland California Resort has reopened to guests for the first time in months.
Legoland Park, Legoland Water Park, and Sea Life aquarium are still closed, but the 3,500+ Lego models throughout the hotel “built for kids” — not to mention a treasure hunt to unlock a safe filled with Lego treasure — provides plenty of Lego-themed family-friendly fun. And with room rates as low as $169 a night, it’s a great time to visit the sunny SoCal destination.
Along with the Legoland Hotel, “The Big Shop” inside the park is also reopening with limited hours. The retail store offers the most extensive assortment of Lego products in the west coast, plus shoppers will get an exclusive treat: The first, second, and third-place Lego models from the hit Fox TV show, “Lego Masters” will be on display.
The top three models include:
“Treasure of the Griffin” built by Amy and Tyler Clites of Florida
“Artopia” built by Boone Langston and Mark Cruickshank of Oregon
“The Peacock and the Monkey” built by Sam Hatmaker of California and Jessica Ewud of Connecticut
The Big Shop will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekends, and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on weekdays (parking is free).
The Legoland Hotel, ranked #6 for TripAdvisor’s Best Hotels for Families in the U.S., is looking forward to welcoming back families and is making health and safety a top priority. Therefore, guests will notice some differences when they return, including reduced capacity, cashless payments, social distancing practices, and enhanced cleaning regimes. Face coverings are also required for all hotel staff members and all guests age three and up.
Legoland Hotel general manager Frank Idris said, “this hotel was created to bring children’s imaginations to life.” Because of that, families can choose from five different room themes that will definitely spark imaginations: Pirate, Adventure, Kingdom, Lego Friends, and Lego Ninjago. Guests can book their stay online here.
Legoland Park, Legoland Water Park, and Sea Life aquarium await county and state approval for reopening. For more information, visit Legoland.com/California.
