(eap) Next year, LEGOLAND® California Resort, operated by Merlin Entertainments, will be celebrating its 25th anniversary. To mark the occasion, a new themed area named “Dino Valley” will open in spring 2024, which will be located in the entrance area of the park. The new dinosaur area will include the existing family-friendly “Coastersaurus” roller coaster, the redesigned “Dino Dig Area” and two new attractions. One of these is the “Explorer River Quest” water ride, in which visitors can spot various prehistoric animals. Second is the “DUPLO® Little Dino Trail” safari ride, where up to four persons per car can go on a dinosaur discovery tour. Also as part of the anniversary season program, the “LEGO® World Parade” will celebrate its premiere next summer.

“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.”

“Looking ahead to 2024, we anticipate a year filled with excitement and boundless creativity, reflecting the core values of Lego,” adds Scott O’Neil, CEO of Merlin Entertainments. “As soon as families enter Legoland California Resort, they will be immersed in a celebratory atmosphere surrounded by special birthday décor and new experiences, all serving as a constant reminder of our 25-year legacy and the timeless allure and appeal of the Lego brand. The unveiling of Dino Valley and the all-new Lego World Parade will spread an extra dose of celebration, inviting families to join us and build together for another quarter century of laughter, play and the timeless art of creating memories.” ■
