LEGO® CITY: DEEP SEA ADVENTURE SUBMARINE RIDE TAKES ITS MAIDEN VOYAGE
This is a TV Re-Broadcast to promote: The New LEGO® MOVIE™ WORLD. The new two-acre park, (LEGOLAND’S largest and most expensive investment to date), takes the blockbuster The LEGO Movie and The LEGO MOVIE 2 The Second Part to another dimension with an elaborate re-creation of Bricksburg, complete with the flagship ride — Emmet’s Flying Adventure !
LEGO® CITY champagne bottles were bursting with streamers and the crowd of media and special guests cheered as the submarines were christened for LEGO® City: Deep Sea Adventure submarine ride at LEGOLAND® California Resort. The interactive ride will feature more than 2,000 sea animals including several species of sharks, rays and other tropical fish amid new LEGO® models all themed around a ship’s sunken treasure!
Entertainment & Sports Today was there to be part of this amazing grand opening event, along with our junior Reporter : Sarah Winick – who being only 7 years old – did a great job of interviewing The Submarine Captain, and along with her 5 year old sister – Caroline, was posing for photos, and talking to people all over LEGOLAND® California Resort, that includes LEGOLAND® California, SEA LIFE® aquarium, LEGOLAND® Water Park, LEGOLAND® Hotel and LEGOLAND® Castle Hotel.
“We’ve really passed the industry benchmark with this ride,” said LEGOLAND California Resort General Manager Peter Ronchetti. “I’m so excited to see the looks on guests faces when they experience Deep Sea Adventure for the first time because they honestly don’t know what to expect as there is nothing to compare it to in North America!”
LEGO® CITY: Deep Sea Adventure submarine ride is Merlin Entertainments’ single largest investment for a ride in any LEGOLAND® Park. For the first time in the United States, LEGOLAND California Resort brings guests onboard a real submarine where they’ll go underwater to discover a truly amazing world filled with real sea animals. Through the use of interactive touchscreens at each porthole inside the sub, guests can help the LEGO® mini figure dive team identify LEGO® gems, pearls, gold coins and more throughout the more than four minute journey. Guests can reach one of three levels during each ride: Junior, Senior and Master Explorer.
Being around submarines is nothing new for Senior Project Manager, Thomas Storer, who was a Lieutenant in the US Navy stationed in San Diego earlier in his career. “The biggest difference between the submarines I’ve been on and the ones families will experience here at LEGOLAND California is they’ll be able to see the beautiful sharks, rays and tropical fish on the other side of the portholes!” Five species of sharks and several species of rays including a southern stingray with a five-foot wing span, are among the sea animals guests will discover.
The interactive touch pads aren’t the only feature that utilizes technology within Deep Sea Adventure. Before guests board the 22,000 pound submarines, they are given a briefing on the mission that awaits them by a 3-foot-tall LEGO diver whose face, with the help of a projector screen, is animated as he gives instructions to the explorers. As guests exit the ride, they enter the retail space where they can build their own virtual fish from LEGO and “release” it into the virtual ocean. If they’d like to build their own LEGO fish at home, all of the LEGO elements are available for purchase.
Legoland is geared for families with children between the ages of 2 and 12. At LEGOLAND California, you’ll find more than 60 rides, shows and attractions. The Park also includes LEGO® NINJAGO: Master of the Fourth Dimension 4D film, NINJAGO™ The Ride where guests experience 3D imagery, high-tech sensors and use hand movements in a striking motion to master their skills before battling the Great Devourer, LEGO® Star Wars™ Miniland Model Display and The LEGO® Movie 4D A New Adventure™.
SEA LIFE aquarium is home to more than 5,000 living creatures and incorporates LEGO® models into a child’s voyage to the depths of the ocean featuring play zones, fun facts and quiz trails.
LEGOLAND Water Park features more than seven slides, sandy beaches and the unique Build-A-Raft Rive plus Pirate Reef and LEGO Legends of Chima Water Park comprising 10 acres of water fun! The nation’s first LEGOLAND Hotel features 250 rooms, all themed either as pirate, adventure, kingdom, LEGO® Friends and LEGO® NINJAGO™! New this year, LEGOLAND Castle Hotel features 250 rooms, fully themed as Knights and Dragons, Royal Princess and Magic Wizard.
