It’s Party Time! LEGOLAND California Resort Celebrates 25th Birthday with Two Awesome New Experiences
In 2024, the Carlsbad, CA, theme park will open a new Dino Valley land AND debut North America’s first LEGO® World Parade
CARLSBAD, CA (November 15, 2023) – Happy 25th BRICK-day! What kid wouldn’t want a parade and dinosaurs for their birthday? Today, LEGOLAND® California Resort announces that 2024 – the Park’s 25th birthday – will include the opening of a new land, Dino Valley, and the debut of North America’s first-ever LEGO® World Parade
“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 President of LEGOLAND California Resort 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.”
In spring 2024, dinosaurs are coming to life in Dino Valley. The new land near the entrance of the Park will feature three roar-some rides, a reimagined Dino Dig area and tons of prehistoric fun. Highlights include:
The excitement doesn’t end there! The 2024 season will also feature North America’s first-ever LEGO® World Parade, launching next summer. The Park’s awe-inspiring parade floats include a LEGO City Firetruck, a swashbuckling pirate ship, and floats inspired by LEGO® NINJAGO®, LEGO® Friends, LEGO® City Deep Sea Adventure, and LEGO® DUPLO®. Entertainers with glittering costumes will march hand-in-hand, dance, and sing as the Parade makes its way through the west side of the Park. The perfect finale to a day spent riding, climbing, splashing, and building throughout LEGOLAND California’s 60+ rides, shows, and attractions, visitors will love grooving along to the Parade’s all-new, original soundtrack. Once it debuts, the Parade is slated to run throughout the summer.
“As we look towards 2024, we anticipate a year of unparalleled excitement and boundless creativity, echoing the very essence of the core values of LEGO," says CEO of Merlin Entertainments Scott O'Neil. "From the moment families step into LEGOLAND California Resort, they'll be immersed in a celebratory atmosphere, surrounded by special birthday décor and new experiences that all serve as a constant reminder of our 25-year legacy and the timeless wonder and appeal of the LEGO brand. The unveiling of Dino Valley and the brand new LEGO World Parade will showcase an extra dose of celebratory cheer, inviting families to join us and build together in another quarter-century of laughter, play, and the timeless art of memory making."
In 2024, LEGOLAND California Resort will bring back beloved signature experiences including:
