After a successful debut this year at sister park Legoland Florida, Legoland California has announced that Emmet, Wyldstyle, Unikitty and all their friends will arrive in The Lego Movie World next spring.

The new two-acre land will be themed to Bricksburg and feature three attractions, a interactive play area and a meet and greet section.  The addition will mark the park's 20th anniversary, quite a nice birthday present.   “The Lego Movie World is Legoland California Resort’s largest Park addition ever and we are thrilled to create an interactive experience that fully immerses guests into a world that was so brilliantly created by Lego and celebrated by the hugely popular Lego film franchise from our friends at Warner Bros.,” said PeteRonchetti, the park's general manager.

The largest attraction in The Lego Movie World is the Masters of Flight flying theater attraction, seen above.  Riders sit on triple-decker couches and fly into the Lego World which is projected all around them.  The couches rotate 180 degree after loading to take flights, and the California version will feature two theaters to allow for more capacity than the one theater in the Florida version.  The ride not only takes guests on a soaring adventure, but it also includes 4-D interactions like wind, mist and as the scent of pine and cotton candy, among others.

The park's will also build their own copy of Unikitty's Disco Drop, a family sized free fall.  Standing 35 feet tall, the Disco Drop will gently drop riders down after giving them an aerial view of Bricksburg.  The land's third attraction will be an exiting carousel that will be totally rethemed to fit The Lego Movie World.

The expansion will replace Legoland California's existing Duplo Playground (already relocated) and Lego Friends areas when it opens next year.
