LEGO® Movie World CA

LEGOLAND® • Amusement Parks & Attractions • April 2020

Take center stage and hang with the stars at LEGOLAND’s LEGO Movie World in CA. It’s showtime…


The LEGO® Movie World is LEGOLAND California Resort’s most massive two-acre park addition ever, creating an interactive experience that fully immerses guests into a phenomenal land of amusements and attractions on the streets of Bricksburg. More than 1,300 people spent two years designing and building the area, including the Design/Build team from A&ES. The land is isolated from the rest of the park by 35-45 feet towering buildings and billboards, making it feel immersive—the direction the theme park industry is heading. To make room for the massive new land, Legoland had to move Duplo Playtown and the attractions in Heartlake City to a different part of the park. The CA version is the second iteration of this land, as The LEGO Movie World also opened at LEGOLAND Florida in 2019. Open in Carlsbad, CA, 2020, The LEGO Movie World is based on the popular films The LEGO Movie and The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part, both created by the hugely popular LEGO film franchise at Warner Bros.

A&ES Build Highlights

The marquee attraction is Emmett’s Flying Adventure. During this movie theater-style ride, guests sit on Emmett’s signature triple-decker couch while soaring through locations from the movies for which A&ES provided the themed construction and fabrication. The screen is 50 feet tall, and the ride will have 4-D technology with wind and scented air blowing at riders during the presentation. The beginning of the ride is what sets it apart from other, similar movie-theater attractions. Guests start facing away from the screen in a pitch-black theater. As the ride begins, the gondolas rotate a full 180-degrees, feet dangling over the edge, and then the larger than life screen goes LIVE for an unforgettable WOW moment! The ride’s sister-attraction in Florida is the only other movie style-ride in the world that features a 180-degree turn. The flying theater attraction whisks guests away on a suspended ride with a full-dome virtual screen, giving the sensational feeling of flying above Middle Zealand, Cloud Cuckoo Land, Pirates Cove, and Outer Space. Along the way, riders see familiar faces and some new ones like Sweet Mayhem, a star character from The LEGO Movie: The Second Part.

In addition to Masters of Flight, kids and families enjoy the rush of falling from Unikitty’s Disco Drop and experience this fearless feline’s many personalities. The new ride launches guests to the top of Cloud Cuckoo Land, then drops, spins, and bounces them back down to earth, creating a thrilling and fun experience. The adventure never ends! Guests can explore Benny’s Play Ship, ride a fully reimagined carousel, and meet Emmet and all his friends in Emmet’s Super Suite apartment. Guests also meet and greet characters from the movie in a particular area, purchase memorabilia from a store that sells “Awesome Stuff,” and enjoy excellent eats at a restaurant, a Lego brick play area, and several small food carts.
