Welcoming The New Year at Legoland California

How did you spend your New Year’s Eve? I spent it at one of the coolest places on earth: Legoland California. Legoland is a 128-acre park geared specifically towards youngsters ages two through 12 (which is about my age level). With over 50 family rides, “hands-on” attractions and shows, Legoland California provides education, adventure and fun in this first park of its kind in the United States.

In addition to Legoland California, there are currently three other Legoland parks in the world – Legoland Billund in Denmark marked its 40th anniversary in 2008; Legoland Windsor outside of London opened in 1996, and has been awarded the British Government’s top honor for excellence in academic programs and Legoland Deutschland in Germany opened the Spring of 2002. Legoland Florida will open in the fall of 2011.

Legoland California also features a waterpark and the Sea Life Aquarium. The waterpark was closed because California isn’t hot enough in December for water sliding. However, the aquarium provided tons of additional fun for Sally and her friends. I asked Sally which she liked better: Legoland or Disneyland? She replied that she liked them equally and that we needed to go to both every time we’re in California. She is one smart kid.

    Santa Claus lego looks pretty neat. Hope i can visit this place someday 🙂 Happy 2011 John!

      Legos have come a long way from when I played with them as a kid. They have all the unique blocks to build custom stuff now, but then they only had the basics.

      They were a blast then and look even more fun now

      1. Hey John,

        I didn’t know that Legoland has an aquarium and waterpark.
        Sally is getting to be a fast thinking child.

        Soon you’ll have a hard time staying at her level if she keeps it up.

  2. This is the best way to start your new year.

    Family and smiling face all around.

    Simply great,
