How are your Lego building skills? Time to gather up the kids and hone them!
North America’s first Legoland Hotel opens April 5 at the entrance to the Legoland theme park in Carlsbad, California. (30 miles from San Diego).
All 250 rooms are decked out in Lego’s three most popular product lines — Pirate, Kingdom, or Adventure. Rooms feature mini-refrigerators, coffee makers, work stations, kids-only bunk areas, and in-room treasure hunts. There’s also free WiFi, HD flatscreen, and of course, lots of Lego bricks.
Other fun elements include a 32-foot high pirate shipwreck (canons blare when the pirate flag is raised), a knight’s castle with a giant burping ogre (yes, you read that correctly), themed elevators (one is a disco theme with mirror ball). There also are interactive Lego features and play areas throughout the hotel.
The hotel will hold Junior Concierge contests in which six winners aged 8-12 receive a free weekend stay and Lego products in exchange for sharing their passion for the park with other young guests.
Another a cool added perk is that hotel guests will be allowed VIP entry to various rides and attractions at the park before it officially opens.
There is also a heated swimming pool, fitness center, pool bar and lounge, Bricks Family Restaurant, and the Skyline Bar.
Opening rates start at $149 at night. You can book online or call 877-LEGOLAND (877.534.6526).
