Celebrities Walk the Purple Carpet for LEGOLAND® California Resort’s Newest Addition LEGO® Friends Heartlake City

Streamers burst through the air, music blasted and celebrities applauded as LEGOLAND® California Resort officially opened its latest addition,  LEGO® Friends Heartlake City.


The family theme park’s new land opened in style as celebrities, Make-a-Wish families and a San Diego Padre walked the “purple” carpet before enjoying the festivities with their families.

Based on the popular LEGO® Group’s toy line and TV show “LEGO Friends,” Heartlake City was brought to life when a little girl helped the city’s mayor turn the key to power up the Friends Forever Stage, spin the carousel at Mia’s Riding Camp and turn on the Heartlake Fountain.  As Heartlake City came to life, the LEGO Friends live girls appeared on stage to perform a song for the guests and get the party started. Guests joined in the fun by singing and dancing, exploring and constructing LEGO horses in the stables and riding the carousel.

Celebrity guests including professional skateboarder Tony Hawk, actress Gena Lee Nolin, actor Barry Sloane from “Revenge”, Briana Rene’e Manson from “Little Women: LA” and San Diego Padres pitcher Ian Kennedy walked down the purple carpet and joined in some family fun by stopping by the LEGOLAND photo booth before starting their adventure in Heartlake City.

LEGO Friends Heartlake City is packed with fun and excitement around every corner. Guests can enjoy living like a LEGO Friend for a day while exploring Mia’s Riding Camp, a 62 horse and jeep carousel ready to take guests on an adventure, the Heartlake Fountain where children and their friends can splash about, and the Heartlake Stables ready for LEGO building activities. Guests can even sing along with the LEGO Friends on the Friends Forever Stage all before enjoying sweet crêpes at the City Park Crêperie. LEGO Friends Heartlake City is included in the cost of admission to LEGOLAND California Resort. For ticket prices, operating schedule and additional information, visit or call 760-918-LEGO (5346).
