Set in the futuristic kingdom of Knighton, the 12½-minute film follows five young knights in their quest to defeat Jestro, the Book of Monsters and their Lava Monster Army.

Afterward, kids can go on a quest to discover six shields scattered across the theme park that will unlock exclusive NEXO Powers in the free LEGO NEXO KNIGHTS Merlok 2.0 mobile app, available for iOS and Android devices.

‘Our whole family had a blast!’

LEGO NINJAGO World

Mike, Cameron, Faith and Melissa Allen pose with a giant, brick-built model of LEGO NINJAGO® star Kai outside the site of the new LEGO NINJAGO World theme park land opening in early 2017.

Last week, the Allen family from Michigan enjoyed their Grand Prize from the #BrickOrTreatContest we sponsored with HLN’s “Morning Express with Robin Meade” cable news show several months ago. Making their second visit to LEGOLAND® Florida Resort, dad Mike, mom Melissa, 12-year-old Cameron and 11-year-old Faith got to enjoy all the new fun added since their last trip, including the all-new LEGOLAND Hotel.

Here’s what Cameron had to say about it:

Our whole family had a blast at LEGOLAND Florida Resort! From the moment we stepped off the plane and saw a chauffeur with our name on an iPad, we had a lot of fun. The hotel was awesome!!  The rooms were so detailed and cool! We were in a Kingdoms room, and there was a bag of LEGO® items just waiting on the bed for us! We also got to open a treasure chest in the room with more LEGO surprises!

We were able to meet with the Master Model Builders and WOW, that was so cool to see how things are put together for the park and how they store all of the LEGO pieces.

LEGO prizes

Faith and Cameron were delighted to find a bag filled with LEGO items waiting for them in their hotel room, part of the #BrickOrTreatContest Grand Prize.

There was a LEGO building contest the first night there (which I actually ended up winning) and we met some new friends from Flushing, Mich., and hung out with them all night and then went to the water park with them the next day. The first slides Fischer, Holden, Faith and I went on were the Splash Out and they were a blast!

Project X

Cameron, left, called Project X in the LEGO Technic area his favorite among the park’s themed roller coasters.

“The LEGO Movie™ 4D A New Adventure” was also really cool — there was a lot of water being sprayed at us! All of the coasters were awesome!  My favorite ride in the park was Project X — it was so much fun!  I really enjoyed going into the LEGO stores and trading minifigs with all of the Model Citizens.  We had an amazing time and cannot wait until we go back again.

Thanks again!!!

Welcome, Cameron and Faith!

Cameron and Faith Allen

Cameron and Faith Allen created this mummy and coffin out of LEGO bricks for last fall’s #BrickOrTreatContest.

Last fall, LEGOLAND® Florida Resort partnered with the HLN cable network’s “Morning Express with Robin Meade” to award an awesome family vacation based on the creative kid who built the most monstrous LEGO® model. The #BrickOrTreatContest drew hundreds of entries and because we’re #BuiltForKids we decided to give the Grand Prize to all three finalists.

In January, the Stuchell family visited us from northern Michigan. This month, the Allen family arrives from central Michigan, where daytime temperatures are hovering in the 30s and 40s. (Meanwhile, it’s sunny and warm here in Florida, with temps in the high 70s and low 80s.)

We’re delighted to welcome 12-year-old Cameron and his 11-year-old sister, Faith, for their second trip here. Both are big LEGO fans and much has changed since their last visit. Here’s what Cameron had to say before leaving home:

My sister and I are hyped about our upcoming LEGOLAND vacation! Since we were there in 2013, I heard a lot of attractions were added. We are both huge LEGO fans!  We have a whole room in our house that we call our LEGO Room.

I can’t wait to experience “The LEGO Movie™ 4D A New Adventure” — the attraction sounds really cool! My sister is very excited to see Heartlake City and the “Friends to the Rescue” show.

I will ask the Master Model Builder(s) about different techniques to make my LEGO city unique and how to make it look better. We can’t wait to go!

Cameron and Faith Allen

“We have a whole room in our house that we call our LEGO Room,” says Cameron, 12.

Nick Offerman chats about playing MetalBeard again in ‘The LEGO® Movie™ 4D A New Adventure’

Nick Offerman

Actor Nick Offerman performs the voice of MetalBeard the pirate.

Of all the offbeat roles actor Nick Offerman has played in his career, one of the most memorable surely must be MetalBeard, the craggy, swaggering pirate made of more than 200 LEGO pieces in Warner Bros.’ smash-hit “The LEGO® Movie™.”

Recently, we asked Offerman for his thoughts about returning to the role in an all-new story created for the LEGOLAND® theme parks and LEGOLAND Discovery Centers.

Here’s what he had to say about playing MetalBeard in “The LEGO Movie 4D A New Adventure” for writer-director Rob Schrab, who’s now at work directing “The LEGO Movie Sequel,” due in 2018.

LM4D_XTRA_9

MetalBeard is designed with more than 200 actual LEGO pieces.

Q: What was your reaction when you were asked to voice MetalBeard again for the LEGOLAND attraction?

“I sincerely love voicing MetalBeard for the LEGO projects, as it reminds me of the animated characters of my youth, like Popeye and Grape Ape and ‘The Flintstones.’ ”

Q: What was it like working with Rob Schrab and the team behind the attraction?

“I have worked with Rob on ‘Childrens Hospital’ and ‘Parks and Recreation,’ so it was like a nice reunion of old pals from summer camp. We just tried to make each other laugh with silly renderings of dead-serious piratey mayhem.”

IMG_6378Q: If you were to create your own version of MetalBeard, what kinds of items would you have attached to your minifigure?

“Charcoal grill, two-man bucksaw, harpoon, peregrine falcon, small, well-fed pig, fireman’s axe, Offerman Woodshop baseball bat, small keg of rye whiskey.”

“The LEGO Movie 4D A New Adventure” is now playing multiple times per day in the Wells Fargo Fun Town Theater at LEGOLAND Florida Resort.

Everything was, well, awesome!

Sage Stuchell

LEGO fan Sage Stuchell, 10, was one of three Grand Prize winners of last fall’s #BrickOrTreatContest.

One of the many VIPs who joined us for the recent red carpet, world premiere of “The LEGO® Movie 4D A New Adventure” was 10-year-old Sage Stuchell of Petoskey, Mich., making his very first visit to a LEGOLAND® theme park. Sage was one of three lucky Grand Prize winners of the #BrickOrTreatContest we sponsored with HLN’s “Morning Express with Robin Meade” cable news show last fall.

During a whirlwind visit to LEGOLAND Florida Resort, Sage and his family — dad Stephen, mom Emily and 7-year-old sister Sienna — enjoyed the theme park, a private session with our Master Model Builders, accommodations in our brand-new LEGOLAND Hotel and an invitation to be our special guests for the world premiere of the new attraction.

The Stuchell Family

Sage and his family: dad Stephen, mom Emily and 7-year-old sister Sienna.

The Stuchell Family

Sage and his family attended the world premiere of “The LEGO Movie 4D A New Adventure” alongside several kid celebrities and social media stars.

How was it? Here’s what Sage had to say after returning home:

I liked LEGOLAND® very, very much.

I could tell the first night we stepped out of the car at the hotel it was the best hotel I’ve ever been to. There was a huge LEGO® clock and a dragon all made out of LEGO. Behind the front desk was a whole wall full of minifigures and a big pit of LEGO to build in the middle of the lobby.

Sage Stuchell

Sage and his sister enjoy the “LEGO loot” from the treasure chest in their LEGOLAND Hotel room.

Then we went into the elevator. What? A disco party! We got one of Brickbeard’s pirate rooms and I thought the LEGO builds on the walls were very cool. There was a LEGO lizard, spider, cannonball, parrot, mouse and pirate artifacts. We decoded a lock and opened a treasure chest full of LEGO loot.

When I saw the LEGOLAND theme park I thought it was the most amazing place I’ve ever seen!  All the rides were awesome! My favorites were The Dragon and Coastersaurus, because they are very high and I like to be up high. There is even an Island in the Sky.

I thought Miniland was going to be smaller but it was huge! So much to see. The Star Wars battle of Geonosis was super realistic. The Darth Vader, Darth Maul and R2-D2 were life-size and very accurately built. I was very impressed!

Sage Stuchell

We watched Brickbeard’s water ski show and ate Granny’s Apple Fries in the Florida sunshine. My sister loved Heartlake City and Mia’s Riding Adventure. We even got our LEGO driver’s license.

The “LEGO Movie™ 4D” premiere was my FAVORITE! There were so many awesome treats like cookies and cupcakes! I saw many of the Nickelodeon and Disney stars I see on TV every day. It made me feel very special to be part of the red carpet event.

During the movie, I loved the all “4D” effects, especially when the lemonade stand squirted us! It felt like I could touch everything, and LEGO were right in my face. I loved meeting all the LEGO characters, even Lord Risky.

I couldn’t believe all the bricks in the LEGO Master Model Builders’ workshop. It was cool to see where and how Master Model Builders work. All the hard work the designers do makes it fun to put together these amazing LEGO sets.

Inside the mind of Risky Business

Patton Oswalt

Actor, writer and comedian Patton Oswalt voices Risky Business, brother of movie villain President Business.

Late last week, LEGOLAND® California Resort welcomed celebrities and VIP guests to its own gala premiere of “The LEGO® Movie™ 4D A New Adventure.” Stars including John Michael Higgins, Ali Landry, Emmy Perry and pro skateboarder Andy MacDonald strolled the red carpet before entering the LEGO Show Place Theater to celebrate the return of Emmet, Wyldstyle, MetalBeard, Benny and Unikitty.

Joining the festivities was actor, writer and comedian Patton Oswalt, who voices the scheming Risky Business, a new character created exclusively for the new attraction.

When asked how it felt to join a “family” of well-known characters from “The LEGO Movie,” he responded, “It’s beyond flattering. It’s a clever, creative way of looking at, of all things, LEGO, and I was touched to be a part of it.”

Since Risky Business is a character that fans of “The LEGO Movie” haven’t seen before, he said he approached the acting challenge of hiding Risky’s true intentions “with the wiles of a LEGO coyote.”
