Legoland California and other California theme parks are unlikely to resume full operations until the spring or summer, in accordance with state-issued COVID-19 health and safety reopening guidelines.

Legoland is the latest theme park in Southern California to launch a special limited-time event while waiting to reopen – joining Disney California Adventure, Knott’s Berry Farm, Six Flags Magic Mountain and SeaWorld San Diego.

Build ‘N Play days will include Lego building activities, adventure play areas, character-meeting opportunities, live entertainment and food. No amusement park rides or attractions will be open during the event.

Kids can climb play structures at Castle Hill, Ninjago World, and Duplo Playtown.

Creative endeavors include a Lego building activity in Fun Town and a minifigure design experience on the roof of the Miniland Model Shop. Disinfected bricks will be provided.
