Last month I attended an exciting press conference at Legoland where we learned that coming in January of 2018 a new 4-D movie (LEGO® NINJAGO® – Master of the 4th Dimension) will launch, followed by the opening of LEGOLAND® Castle Hotel in the spring. We also were told that a brand new underwater ride called LEGO® City Deep Sea Adventure submarine ride will be opening in the summer!
LEGO® City Deep Sea Adventure is Merlin Entertainment’s single largest investment in any LEGOLAND® Park and will take passengers aboard a real submarine where they will be submerged underwater and immersed in an ocean habitat.
Facts About LEGO City Deep Sea Adventure submarine ride
- The submarines are real.
- Water will be filled with more than 2,000 different real sea animals, including several species of stingrays and a variety of exotic sharks.
The ride will open in summer of 2018 and takes guests on a submarine ride looking for lost treasure on a sunken LEGO shipwreck. Among the real sea animals are bright LEGO octopi, marine tropical fish and LEGO scuba divers. Touchscreens at each porthole inside the sub are used by guests to help the LEGO minifigure dive team identify gems, pearls, LEGO gold coins and more throughout the journey. Up to 12 guests will board one of eight submarines that are designed after the LEGO City Deep Sea Adventure line of toys.

Legoland Characters were out in full force after the press conference and we had a chance to mingle with Kai and Nya as well as sit on the royal throne! Then we made a quick run for some apple fries because no trip to Legoland is complete with out them. Am I right?
