LEGOLAND® Castle Hotel

LEGOLAND® • Amusement Parks & Attractions • April 2018

At LEGOLAND® Castle Hotel, discover a family adventure fit for royalty with only LEGO® characters and impish interactive surprises…


While parents register in the LEGOLAND® Castle Hotel magic spellbook, kids slide down to the Grand Hall lobby passing by a waving Queen on her balcony. Every brick is bursting with LEGO enchantment and captivating tales of kingdoms from distant lands! LEGOLAND Castle Hotel dazzles the park’s main entrance and features Knights & Dragons, Royal Princess or Magic Wizard themed rooms, each with a separate sleeping area for the kids. Guests also enjoy interactive LEGO features throughout the hotel, nightly children’s entertainment, and an in-room treasure hunt with LEGO surprises for the kids!

A&ES Build Highlights

At the entrance to Legoland Castle Hotel’s Grand Hall, lords a giant Merlin statue taking more than 1,200 hours to construct using over 250,000 LEGO pieces. Discover 2,100 LEGO models A&ES created three million-plus vibrantly colored bricks on property. Hidden surprises include talking portraits, musical seats, and the jester’s joke door. Even the elevators are entertaining as Merlin magically lifts and lowers hotel guests. From LEGOLAND® fanfare flags to the WOW model LEGO® Grand Royal Statue feature, to a drawbridge to the Grand Staircase, LEGO® wagon-wheel chandeliers that light the magical wizard atop a LEGO® brick pit plinth, this hotel is a castle that ROCKS! The Dragon’s Den Restaurant & Bar, one of the A&ES builds, features the Jester Bar with LEGO® arches and stone wall graphics. One jester pops out of a box. Another plays the guitar on the self-playing piano. Guests practice juggling or play with giant cards, musical instruments, puppets, toys, costumes, tickle sticks, tabletop games, and brick builds. Or, they can take a spin on the wheel in front of the wobbly mirror on the Royal Wall of Fame at the Jester’s Joke Inn. A fascinating Knock-Knock Joke Door button triggers a jester’s endless jokes. On the way to a suite or guestroom, guests pass colorful corridor graphics by A&ES creatives on the Knight Wall and Carpet on the Dragon Knight, Wizard, and Princess floors.
