Most recently we attended a media preview of the new LEGO Friends Heartlake City. Based on the LEGO toy line, LEGO Friends Mia, Emma, Stephanie, Andrea and Olivia bring their world to life at LEGOLAND California Resort in Carlsbad, California! There’s a new stage, carousel, building station, fountain, new restaurants and more! Mia’s Riding Camp is LEGOLAND® California’s first carousel! Designed to accommodate 1,000 people per hour, it consists of 60 horses and two Jeeps and set for three speeds to recreate the feeling of learning how to gallop on a horse. Heartlake Stables is a new shaded LEGO building trough! Heartlake Fountain is a large fountain in the shape of a heart located in the center of Heartlake City. It’s a fun spot to cool off and splash around. Friends Forever Stage is home to the new “LEGO® Friends to The Rescue” show! With 5-6 performances per day (depending on park hours), the stage rotates to provide different backdrops for different live shows. TIP: Stop by the Meet and Greet in between the shows to meet the LEGO friends!
New Amenities inside Friends Heartlake City include:
- City Park Crêperie includes dessert crepes with Powdered Sugar, Nutella, Nutella & Bananas (pictured), andBerries.
- Wok ‘N’ Bowl Ramen offers ramen noodles with pork belly or chicken and fresh vegetables, stir fry and kids meals.
- Heartlake City Boutique is based on the Heartlake Mall LEGO building set. Guests can shop for LEGO Friends toys and products. There’s also a LEGO Friends hot air balloon featured inside the center of the store.
More than 50 LEGO models have been built, and it took about 150,000 LEGO elements for Master Model Builders to create all five LEGO Friends models including lady bugs, rabbits, flowers, carrots, microphones, and first place ribbons. Each LEGO® Friends Model is made of 30,000 LEGO bricks (there are 5 friends) = 150,000 bricks total.
LEGO Friends Heartlake City is located on the west side of the Park in between Fairy Tale Brook and DUPLO® Village. The new LEGO Friends Heartlake City offers a great addition to LEGOLAND California. The songs are catchy, and the Friends are super-friendly. My kids love LEGO, and we always have a great time when we go!
