Legoland California 2008

Legoland California has announced some major ($20 Million) expansion plans for the 2008 season, including another new land in the park and a full Aquarium next to the park.

Land of Adventure will be a new 1 acre area inside the theme park. The area will be set in 1920s Egypt and feature the park's first dark ride, Lost Kingdom Adventure. The ride is interactive, with Laser guns and various targets, features 9 show scenes and sounds cool to me.

The area will also have two other rides for kids, Beetle Bounce and Cargo Ace. The latter is an airplane ride, the former is a 15 ft. mini tower ride. Also included will be Pharaoh's Revenge, a foam ball play area - an attraction that is a hit at many parks already.

The park also announced Sea Life Legoland - a brand new Aquarium next to the park's entrance. The Aquarium will be separate admission and will help to turn the theme park into a resort. There's lots more info on this in the park's press release.

Here is a news article about the expansion as well.
