Legoland – A San Diego Hotel Deal Favorite! Honor the Child Within.

Our best deal $10 Off Resort Hopper Tickets Plus 2nd Day Free!

Our first post is about Legoland! For native Southern Californians, Legoland has been a welcome addition to our seaside Carlsbad landscape. Before Legoland, there were few places so friendly to young children. Parents around the world are familiar with the feeling of bringing an eager child to an amusement park, only to find them frightened and wanting to go home. At Legoland, however, young children romp and play in the safety of an overgrown playground, a child’s paradise. The colors are bright, bold and friendly, the rides are on the slower side, and many welcome parents, grandparents, and guardians. When Denmark decided on San Diego county to house their treasure, they hit a bullseye. Amusement parks bathed in sunshine fare much better than those drenched in rain for much if the year, as is the case in colder weather climates. There are a number of interactive rides and attractions for children, where kids make choices, turn knobs, slide doors open and shut, and follow a educating itinerary. Adults delight in the delicious meatballs available on site, and a variety of many fresh foods.

The most memorable aspect of visiting Legoland, whether one is an adult or a child, is taking in the towering life-size creations made 100% of actual legos! There are more than 50 attractions at the theme park, but this is simply a detail compared to the acrobatics of childhood memories that come into play upon any visit. Who hasn’t assembled a row of legos with great delight? This park realizes a child’s dream in living color and with grand proportions. Match a living fantasy with a family adventure and you have material for memory-making days. (This post by B. McDonald)

Some of Legoland’s history can be found on their international website:

Ole Kirk Christiansen started making wooden toys in his small workshop in Billund, Denmark in 1932. Two years later, Ole Kirk decided upon a name for his toys and his workshop – LEGO®, a contraction of the Danish words ‘leg godt,’ meaning ‘play well.’ Coincidentally, it was later learned that LEGO in Latin means “I put together” or “I assemble.” In 1947, the company bought its first plastics injection-molding machine and in 1949 the forerunner to the LEGO brick was introduced, under the name “Automatic Binding Bricks”.

Inner tubes on the bricks were introduced in 1958, which significantly increased the number of possible building combinations. In 1967, the larger DUPLO® bricks for pre-school children were introduced, and LEGO TECHNIC for older children debuted in 1977. LEGO DACTA®, now know as The Educational Division, was set up in 1980. LEGOLAND California is a 128-acre park geared specifically towards youngsters ages two through 12. With over 50 family rides, “hands-on” attractions and shows, LEGOLAND California provides education, adventure and fun in this first park of its kind in the United States.”
