Following Six Flags Magic Mountain’s announcement that it will be the first California theme park to fully reopen on April 1, Legoland California will now reopen on the same day — and ditch its scheduled special event in the process.
The Carlsbad, California park will be open from April 1-12 to “Park Preview Days,” then transition to a Thursday through Monday operating calendar on April 15. The park won’t be open daily until May 20.
Priority will be given to annual passholders and guests with existing tickets. That latter group will include anyone who purchased admission to the Build ‘N Play Days special event from April 1 to May 2. Advance reservations will be required.
“It’s been a long and challenging year for all of us and we are extremely excited to be able to start reopening our Resort not only to our guests so they can build family memories, but for our staff who have been patiently waiting to return to work, “ said Legoland California Resort President Kurt Stocks.
San Diego County is currently in the “red” tier” of California’s reopening guidelines, which would allow Legoland to operate at 15 percent of its pre-pandemic maximum capacity. The capacity limits goes up to 25 percent when a park’s home county reaches the “orange” tier.
Since California’s theme park reopening guidelines were adjusted earlier this month, reopening timelines have also been announced for Disneyland and Knott’s Berry Farm. Out of the major parks in Southern California, only Universal Studios Hollywood and SeaWorld San Diego have yet to announce when they plan to reopen rides and attractions.
