Legoland California attendance up 28% with new aquarium

Posted Thursday, July 16, 2009 11:31 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Merlin Entertainment Group is reporting 28% annual growth in visitors for Legoland's 57 attractions. The numbers no doubt have been bolstered by the addition of the Sea Life Aquarium with its 36 displays enclosed in a 36,000-square-foot, two-story building.

28% is a very significant number. Maybe Six Flags should look into opening aquariums next door to their struggling parks...

Pass da' sizzrup, bro!

Crazy.. Who would have thought Lego Bricks could hold back 250,000 gallons of water..

With a combo ticket only ten dollars more than general admission to Legoland, it's a no brainer. Pay an extra ten bucks and see the fisheys next door, or drive a half an hour south and pay fifty plus bucks a head (plus $12 parking) to get into Seaworld. I can see where a lot of families on budgets opt for this alternative. It's no wonder their attendance is up.

That's awesome! That's a neat little park that totally blew me away when we visited a few years ago. An aquarium sounds like a nice bonus! Well, it's obviously worked so far. :)

I think Six Flags should have built an aquarium next to Geagua Lake. ;)

CP already has wildlife. Have you seen all the carp ald wild guests running around.

THe morning entry rush was refered to by the staffers as the "Running of the Bulls."
