Actress Jenna Elfman helped light the park's 30-foot Lego Christmas tree, which is built from 245,000 green Duplo bricks and lit with more than 11,000 LED lights.
In addition, the Legoland showed off some animation from its upcoming Ninjago: The Ride, opening next year, and released an image from "The LEGO Movie 4D A New Adventure," which will begin showing exclusively at the park next Feb. 6.
Ninjago: The Ride will feature unique hand-motion technology in lieu of traditional weapons and controllers in an interactive dark ride through a ninja dojo, inspired by the popular Lego franchise. And the 4D show builds off the success of 2014's The LEGO Movie, which also has inspired a sequel that will debut in 2018.
Legoland's Holiday Snow Days and Winter Nights run through Jan. 3, during the park's operating hours. The park also will feature nightly fireworks Dec. 26-31.
