The submarines have arrived at Legoland California, in preparation for the launch of the park's new "deep sea" adventure this summer.
Legoland California announced today that its Lego City Deep Sea Adventure ride will open in July. Previously, the park has said only "summer" for an opening date. The attraction will be the first North American installation of the ride that Legoland has opened as Submarine Adventure at Legoland Dubai and Atlantis Submarine Voyage at Legoland Windsor in the United Kingdom. It's also Merlin Entertainments' largest single investment in any ride in a Legoland park to date.
Legoland has installed eight 22,000-pound submarines in the ride's 300,000-gallon tank. From those subs, visitors will be able to see more than 2,000 real sea animals, including several species of stingrays and a variety of sharks. The subs will be equipped with touch screens, powering an interactive element where riders can direct a Lego minifig dive team identify ocean treasure throughout the four-minute ride.
Let's take a first look at the subs and the tank:Tweet
