Carlsbad, CA, USA (April 4, 2013) — After years of anticipation, LEGOLAND Hotel at LEGOLAND California Resort is officially opening its doors to the public. On Friday, April 5, 2013, General Manager of LEGOLAND California Resort Peter Ronchetti and LEGOLAND Hotel General Manager Frank Idris join a cast of characters at a ceremony officially opening the Hotel. LEGOLAND Hotel is the largest expansion in Resort history and is designed to extend the LEGOLAND experience by bringing children’s imaginations to life.
The three-story, 250 room hotel immerses guests in a creative LEGO world and every room is themed after one of three popular LEGO toy lines in the Park: pirate, adventure or kingdom. Children have their own sleeping area in every room complete with bunk beds, a trundle bed and their own TV. The hotel’s entrance is guarded by a smoke-breathing LEGO dragon created out of 400,000 LEGO bricks. Each room has at least eight LEGO models and theming can be found on the walls, carpeting and bedding. There are more than 3,500 LEGO models throughout the Hotel using more than three million LEGO bricks. Interactive features include a Castle Play area, a talking and spraying dragon on the patio, LEGO play pits in the reception area and a treasure hunt inside the rooms where younger guests search for clues then open a locked safe to find LEGO treasure. Guests staying at LEGOLAND Hotel have exclusive early access to LEGOLAND California.
