LEGOLAND HOTEL OPENING DAY TRIP REPORT (and a general park update)

2nd part of the update can be found here: http://themeparkreview.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=218&start=166
001.png
This is what this update is all about! They moved the captain from the front entrance to Crossings Road so he can be hit by cars.
002.png
Look at the hotel! Look at it!
003.png
As you can see, nobody was here today.
004.png
YOLO! Vroooom!
005.png
Legoland Hotel's entrance.
006.png
Let's go inside!
007.png
Inside of the hotel is a giant play structure. Legoland did a very good job with this as they really didn't need to do it.
008.png
Here is the indoor portion of Minis Lounge.
009.png
Angry ogre! Why can't the ogre be nice like Shrek?
010.png
Looking UP!
011.png
That isn't gum on the bottom of the blimp.
012.png
A reminder of what building this is. You know, some people walk into buildings without knowing what the heck the building is.
013.png
Some random theming that is very random in the most random location, though it looks nice.
014.png
Here is the entrance to Bricks Restaurant.
015.png
Here is a table at Bricks Restaurant. It looks really nice and you don't need to give kids a coloring sheet, the whole table is one!
016.png
In case you don't know where the heck anything is...
017.png
SMASH!
018.png
The weather cooperated well today.
019.png
Here is the clock tower at the entrance of the hotel.
020.png
You can kind of see the pool. I could've gotten a better picture, but I didn't want to look like a stalker.
021.png
Two Flags > Six Flags
022.png
This is the outdoor portion of Minis Lounge.
023.png
The back of the hotel used to be very bare during construction, but Legoland put a ton of theming onto it to make it look great!
024.png
Heading into the park. The sign was recently repainted.
025.png
When I came today, two new models were put up that I didn't see on Monday. Here is the first one.
026.png
Here is the second model of a bull/ox/something that gives Coast Cruise another model to look at.
027.png
Build and Test was recently re-themed to LEGO City Build and Test.
028.png
New wallpaper was put up around LEGO City Build and Test.
029.png
Las Vegas Miniland re-opened recently after a long five month rehab. Most of the models were replaced with new ones and some of them were sandblasted to make them look new.
030.png
Look at shiny Treasure Island!
031.png
The Mirage volcano now spews a lot more water out that it can actually get you a little wet!
032.png
A close up on Tropicana! You can see how the model was just sandblasted rather than replaced as the bricks are a little worn out.
033.png
High Roller did not survive the rehab. :(
034.png
The two red buildings in Washington DC were sandblasted or replaced recently.
035.png
The two Smithsonian Castle buildings were also recently sandblasted or replaced. Here is the first one.
036.png
Here is the other Smithsonian Castle building. It looks like this one is made with new bricks.
037.png
This is why you don't go to Legoland on Spring Break.
038.png
The Thinker returned! He used to be above the Model Shop and he is now in Fun Town.
039.png
Here are the models I made at the LEGO Clubhouse. (I didn't make the car)
040.png
The water park is now open!
041.png
Single Rail Technic Coaster!
042.png
Since everybody loves Mack mice supports, here's a close up on one of them.
043.png
LEGO Chima 4D-Xperience opened four weeks ago. The film is good, though I wouldn't recommend seeing it unless you have a lot of time on your hands.
044.png
Here is a LEGO model of one of the Chima characters.
045.png
Here is a "ride sign" for the 4D film.
046.png
As you can see, LEGO Chima 4D-Xperience sure has a lot of showtimes. Though, it usually has less.
047.png
Aim for the sky!
048.png
A rare photo of Coastersaurus' first drop! Oooh!
049.png
As I was walking out of Legoland, I saw an ad of Aquatica on a bus. This is the end of the update. Thanks for reading and comments are wanted!

Today was a great day to be a Model Citizen. I got to work in the Lego Clubhouse today teaching classes, so I got to talk to a lot of guests and there was a lot of excitement about the hotel. There was a definite excitement in the air with the hotel opening and I really think the resort is looking the best it ever has.

One of the things I think Legoland always has had going for it is the food. The breakfast buffet at the new Bricks Restaurant was not only the best buffet I've ever had, it was the best breakfast I've ever had. So don't miss it where you're here.

If you were teaching the classes at the Lego Clubhouse today, you should know me. I'm the person who made the model of KidPower Towers last week & Sky Patrol today (as seen on my update).

Thanks. Renate told me a few weeks ago to make some creations on the "Cool Creations" shelf, so I have been building something there every time I visited Legoland.

I can see why she did! Have you thought about building any more ride models?

Most likely, more ride models will come. The problem with a lot of the rides at Legoland is that they are difficult to make out of LEGO bricks (which is funny since most of them are themed to LEGO bricks). Though, whenever I find something that I can built rather easily out of the simple bricks at the Clubhouse, I usually do it. I'll build something when I'm coming on April 20th or 21st (or earlier).

Dang this looks awesome! Sadly, I used to go to LLC alot when I was younger because my aunt lived in the area and got us season passes every year, but I haven't been in probably 4 years now. The new hotel opening and all the other new stuff that was added looks great so I'll definitely have to make my way down there this summer to check it out :).

Is my model of Technic's Car & Track still on display in the Clubhouse? It took forever to model, especially since the reference picture I used was a tiny one from a Lego Club magazine. :p
