Legoland Japan to open in April 2017
December 27, 2016

With its bricks falling into place, Legoland Japan has announced that the new theme park will be opened in 1st April 2017.

With more than 80% of its facilities complete, the new attraction will be Lego’s first attraction in east Asia, and the eighth Legoland worldwide.

Located in Nagoya, the attraction will employ more than 600 staff members and is expected to attract 2 million visitors during its first year of operation.

The 9.3-hectare grounds of Legoland Japan are expected willo house more than 40 attractions, including a rollercoaster, and will feature a 2.1-meter-high reproduction of Nagoya Castle made from more than 225,000 Lego bricks.

A Legoland Discovery Centre opened in Tokyo in 2012 while Legoland theme parks operator Merlin Entertainments opened Madama Tussauds in Tokyo in 2013.
