Legoland Japan opened in April 2017 in Nagoya. This newest theme park for Japan is aimed at young children however there are attractions for accompanying adults as well. Visitors can expect large Lego models, rides, building stations and dining areas.
The amusement park is separated into seven themed areas, matching the different universes in the Lego world. Right in the middle of the park is “Miniland Japan”. Visitors can stroll down a miniature town Miniland, which has models of Japanese landmarks including Tokyo Station, Kiyomizu Temple in Kyoto and a 2-meter-high version of Nagoya Castle. Some 10 million plastic Lego blocks were used to complete Miniland
Factory and Bricktopia are two themed areas that are located right by the entrance of the park. Factory offers a factory tour where visitors can learn more about how Lego bricks are manufactured, including the types of machinery used. Bricktopia has rides as well as a hands-on area where visitors can attend workshops to learn more about model and robotics creation, and a model building and testing room. l. An official Lego shop, The Big Shop, sells Lego sets and products from across the Lego universe. The remaining four areas, Adventure, Lego City, Knight’s Kingdom and Pirate Shores offer a range of attractions and scheduled shows.
A pleasant collection of shops and restaurants is found just outside the entrance to Legoland. Furthermore, a Legoland Hotel and aquarium are currently being built and are expected to open in 2018.
