Merlin Entertainments, a global leader in branded entertainment destinations, announces LEGOLAND® California Resort will be expanding with two new experiences in 2024. This includes the opening of a new land, Dino Valley, and the debut of North America’s first-ever LEGO® World Parade.
In spring 2024, dinosaurs are coming to life in Dino Valley. The new land near the entrance of LEGOLAND California will feature three roar-some rides, a reimagined Dino Dig area and tons of prehistoric fun. This will include:
The 2024 season will also feature North America’s first-ever LEGO® World Parade, launching next summer. The Park’s awe-inspiring parade floats include a LEGO City Firetruck, a swashbuckling pirate ship, and floats inspired by LEGO® NINJAGO®, LEGO® Friends, LEGO® City Deep Sea Adventure, and LEGO® DUPLO®.
Entertainers with glittering costumes will march hand-in-hand, dance, and sing as the Parade makes its way through the west side of the park. The perfect finale to a day spent riding, climbing, splashing, and building throughout LEGOLAND California’s 60+ rides, shows, and attractions, visitors will love grooving along to the Parade’s all-new, original soundtrack. Once it debuts, the Parade is scheduled to run throughout the summer.
“As we look towards 2024, we anticipate a year of unparalleled excitement and boundless creativity, echoing the very essence of the core values of LEGO. From the moment families step into LEGOLAND California Resort, they'll be immersed in a celebratory atmosphere, surrounded by special birthday décor and new experiences that all serve as a constant reminder of our 25-year legacy and the timeless wonder and appeal of the LEGO brand. The unveiling of Dino Valley and the brand-new LEGO World Parade will showcase an extra dose of celebratory cheer, inviting families to join us and build together in another quarter-century of laughter, play, and the timeless art of memory making."Scott O'Neil, CEO of Merlin Entertainments
“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. 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.”Kurt Stocks, President of LEGOLAND California Resort
