Streamers soared through the air as kids and families cheered with excitement during the ribbon cutting ceremony, officially opening LEGOLAND California Resort’s DUPLO Playtown.
The colourful LEGO town, geared towards children five and under, features ten interactive playhouses for kids to climb, slide, and explore. Children can explore a barn, fire station, grocery store, hospital and maze complete with an interactive scarecrow. It is also home to the new LEGOLAND Express Train Ride.
More than 30 families from the Southern California and San Diego chapters of Ronald McDonald House Charities joined the opening ceremony festivities and were treated to a fun-filled day at LEGOLAND California Resort. Kids were outfitted in train conductor hats and received commemorative buttons as they boarded the LEGO locomotive which for many was their first ever theme-park ride!
As part of the opening event, LEGOLAND California donated $80,000 to Ronald McDonald House Charities, benefitting the San Diego and Southern California chapter.
“Here at LEGOLAND California Resort we like to be the first for everything. For many of our young guests, this will be their first time riding our train, climbing Kid Power Towers, and playing with all the interactive play houses here at the new DUPLO Playtown. It’s an honour to have families from the Ronald McDonald House enjoy the new area and spend the day creating memories.”Peter Ronchetti, LEGOLAND California Resort General Manager
For the older siblings, Kid Power Towers stands tall in the middle of DUPLO Playtown – kids and parents alike can ride to the top of one of three towers to get an incredible view of the entire Park and enjoy a thrilling “free-fall” down to the bottom.
