Exciting Additions for 2017 and Beyond Coming to Legoland California

Legoland California has announced new additions for both its upcoming 2017 season as well as the future beyond that.  Let's take a look at all that is coming to the resort and theme park.

Legoland California will expand its water park offerings in time for summer 2017, with the addition of Surfer's Bay.  Seen above, kids will be able to "surf" their way down a six-lane mat slide, competing to be the first across the finish line as they go.  The attraction will be a part of a "California beach themed" expansion to the already diverse Legoland Water Park offerings.  There will also be a new "spray ground" with "multiple water jets splashing on and off and plenty of new Lego models to create a fun place to cool off."

The excitement of Star Wars will be felt at Legoland California next year, with the addition of Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens miniland model display.  The display will feature six scenes that represent the first 30 minutes of Star Wars: The Force Awakens - and will be focused mostly on the planet of Jakku and its inhabitants and a 16 foot long model of the Star Destroyer Finalizer.  The expansion will open in March of 2017.

The existing Legoland Hotel will also create new Lego Ninjago themed rooms, allowing them to "sleep in the company of Cole, Nya, Kai and Lloyd" in 18 of the hotel's rooms.

The park also gave a first look at their next big expansion, a brand new Lego Castle themed hotel.  The 18 Ninjago themed rooms in the existing hotel will be replaced because they currently hold a castle theme.  The new hotel's entrance is seen above, showing how the "premium themed" resort will immediately immerse visitors into another world as they arrive.

The castle themed hotel will hold a total of 250 rooms, complete with this expansive pool area, restaurant and other amenities.  The park plans to break ground on the expansion in early 2017 with no opening date yet announced.
