Legoland Korea Resort – the nation’s first global theme park and the world’s 10th Legoland – held a commemorative key ceremony to mark its completion ahead of its official opening on Children’s Day, May 5, 2022.
During the celebration, Nick Varney, CEO of Merlin Entertainments (the operators of Legoland Resorts), John Jakobsen, COO of the company’s Legoland Resorts Group, Gangwon Province Governor Choi Moon-soon, and Chuncheon City Mayor Lee Jaesoo participated in a key handover ceremony and tour of the park’s seven themed areas – Brick Street, Bricktopia, Lego Castle, Lego Ninjago World, Pirates Shore, Lego City, and Miniland.
“As we gear up towards the official grand opening of Legoland Korea Resort, it brings me immense joy to host today’s Key Handover Ceremony and to meet in person everyone who has helped us in this endeavor, as well as share our hopes and expectations for the future,” Varney said.
During the ceremony, Merlin Entertainments’ Group Development Director for Legoland Parks, Ray Dubois, presented a “golden” key made of Lego bricks to Legoland Korea Resort’s Young Pil Kim, symbolizing the official handover of the park.
The 28,000-square-meter Legoland Korea Resort is the first Legoland to be built on an island, and includes more than 40 rides, shows, and attractions and a 154-room Legoland Hotel.
