In terms of attendance, 2008 was a banner year for Legoland California in Carlsbad. According to their internal stats, the theme park is claiming 2009 as another record breaking year.
As a result of all of this good news (in the toughest of economic times I might add) they are posed to announce some big news come January 8th. At that time, the public will be informed of the details surrounding a 5 acre waterpark expansion for 2010! As if the Sea Life Aquarium addition in 2008 wasn't enough to get me excited!
Some Micechatters have been highly cynical toward the notion of a Disneyland Resort waterpark. Knott's has one, as does Magic Mountain.. and now Legoland. It's only a matter of time before Seaworld and Universal each have one as well. Disney builds the best.. and has even announced it's intention to build one at DLR a few years ago. Disney was the first theme park to have waterparks in the Orlando area.
Why is it that some MCers seem to desire for our resort to be a "Johnny come lately".. or "miss the boat" all together? The weather has been just fine to keep the water parks going well at nearby competing parks.
Well, now that I've got that off my chest.. Go Legoland! Your plans for a new waterpark rock!
