Legoland yesterday unveiled plans for a $20 million expansion that includes a two-story aquarium and an Indiana Jones-like adventure in 1920s Egypt. Ground has been broken on the nearly 36,000-square-foot aquarium, dubbed Sea Life Legoland, in an area near the Carlsbad amusement park's ticket booths. The complex will feature creatures found in California waters, from a freshwater stream in the Sierra Nevada to the San Francisco Bay to the Pacific Ocean. The aquarium will be a separate gate.
