The new Legoland theme park — the 10th in the world — will feature 40 rides, shows, and attractions in seven themed lands: Bricktopia, Brick Street, Lego City, Lego Ninjago, Pirate Shore, Lego Castle, and Miniland.

Legoland Korea Resort’s Themed Lands:

  • Bricktopia – Enter a world built of Lego bricks and find out what it’s like to be a Lego Minifigure on the Lego Factory Adventure.
  • Brick Street – Work with Lego Master Model Builders, take a spin on DJ’s Dizzy Disco Spin, and skip along the Stepping Tones to trigger music from Lego instruments.
  • Lego City – Kids ages 5-12 can learn to navigate through a metropolis of Minifigures at the Lego City Driving School (The land also features Junior Driving School for kids ages 3-5).
  • Lego Ninjago – Train in the art of Spinjitzu at Kai’s Fire Spinners, Jay’s Lightning Drill, and Cole’s Rock Climbing, then use what you’ve learned to defeat the Great Devourer in 4D on Lego Ninjago: The Ride.
  • Pirate Shore – Engage in a Splash Battle, join a swashbuckling crew at Pirate Playscape, and go on a Lego treasure hunt.
  • Lego Castle – Follow a quest through Merlin’s Castle, face the Dragon Coaster, and compete in a Royal Joust.
  • Miniland – Visit the heart of the park to see animated and interactive Lego cities — several that have never been seen before at any Legoland park.

“Legoland Korea Resort will be positioned as the nation’s key family travel destination, providing an authentic Lego experience through more than 40 rides, shows, and attractions in addition to a unique 154-room Legoland Hotel,” said Young Pil Kim, divisional director of Legoland Korea Resort. “[It] will be the ultimate Lego experience for kids aged 2-12 as well as adults who love Lego.”

On opening day, the main theme park will cover 12.8 hectares (about 32 acres); however, additional space already earmarked for expansion space gives Legoland Korea Resort the potential to become one of the largest in Legoland’s portfolio.

“Whichever way you look, it will be unmistakably a Legoland experience,” said Candy Holland, senior creative director for Legoland Resorts. “I think as it establishes itself, it will have a similar vibe to the California park.

Legoland Korea Resort - 1st to Play Pass

Legoland Korea Resort marked its opening date announcement with the release of a limited edition “1st to Play” annual pass. This unique pass can only be purchased when a new Legoland Park opens and comes with the once-in-a-lifetime experience of being invited to the theme park before it officially opens.
