Legoland California celebrated the 20th anniversary of its opening this morning, with a birthday celebration at the front gate that continued into the park.
The Carlsbad, California park was Legoland's first in the United States, opening March 20, 1999. Over the past two decades, the park has expanded to add a water park and two hotels, plus dozens of more rides, including last year's Lego City Deep Sea Adventure.
The park handed out child-sized minifig hands to the first 1,000 kids through the gate this morning. And Legoland is celebrating its birthday throughout the year, offering free admission to all children ages 12 and under on their birthdays in 2019.
In other Legoland news, I will be in Florida next week for my first visit to Legoland Florida, to cover the opening of that park's The Lego Movie World. Stay tuned!Tweet
