New Legoland California manager sees bright future for the attraction

Posted Monday, February 9, 2009 9:14 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Peter Ronchetti has a sunny view of what lies ahead for Legoland California, and it's not just because he arrived from a theme park that gets half as much annual sunshine. Ronchetti, who took over as Legoland's general manager Jan. 1, said an aquarium that opened at the park last summer has its annual visitor count on track to break 2 million for the first time, even as many other tourism businesses are hunkering down. He hopes to launch one new attraction at the park this year and a major expansion next year, he said.

I hope so too. I really enjoyed the park the last time I was there. :)

They've been pretty good at making regular investments. They are usually small, but it all adds up. We'll definitely be back this summer.

Unless they changed the policy from 2 years ago, what I really enjoyed about Legoland is that you can go in the park and look around for an hour free of charge. We just went to the ticket booth and told them we just wanted to go in the stores. They took an imprint of our credit card and said if we weren't back in an hour we would be charged full admission. We had enough time to walk around the entire park and take lots of pictures as well as going in the stores.
