At Legoland California Resort, families went from theatre to theme park as it debuted The Lego Movie 2 Experience at the family theme park in Carlsbad. Guests experienced movie magic by stepping onto an actual Lego set as seen in “The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part,” that recently opened. Returning heroes Emmet, Lucy, and their Lego co-stars can be spotted in their hometown of Apocalypseburg in miniature scale and Park guests can meet the characters in person as well. Here they will find the details that go into making this new big-screen Lego animated adventure.
Opening of the attraction kicked off with streamers exploding as the stage doors were finally opened by Legoland California Resort General Manger Peter Ronchetti, officially opening the new Lego Movie 2 Experience. Guests were treated to movie clips, Lego characters and an unveil of a new Lego costume character, General Mayhem, before entering the new attraction. The Lego Movie 2 Experience offers behind-the-scenes thrills that can be enjoyed by Lego fans.
Following the morning’s opening ceremony, writer and producer of ‘The Lego Movie 2’, Chris Miller, and his family, were one of the first guests to see The Lego Movie 2 Experience. When asked about what fans can expect from the new attraction, Miller said, “They’ll get to feel like they’re inside the movie and also notice all the detail work that the set designers, prop designers and everybody else put in. You know I spent a lot of time in this basement set for the first movie and the second movie – and in Bianca’s room set, in the second movie, so I’m having real flashbacks to six months ago when we shot this stuff.”
The Lego Movie 2 Experience features more than 500,000 Lego bricks and took Master Model builders more than 960 hours to assemble for the film. The new attraction offers guests an up-close look at Apocalypseburg and models from the Systar System. Movie fans can stand in the same place as characters from the film and imagine being in the action.
