LEGOLAND® CALIFORNIA RESORT KICKS OFF HEROES WEEKEND WITH A PATRIOTIC SPLASH! Print
Family Theme Park Partners With National Fire Protection Association With Fire Safety Tips, Activities and More!
CARLSBAD, Calif. (June 14, 2019) – School’s out for summer and LEGOLAND® California Resort is celebrating summer break with its Heroes Weekend sponsored by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). The family theme park kicked-off the weekend-long event focused on fire safety with the help from some firefighters and their families from Los Angeles Fire Department and Carlsbad Fire Department who were invited to spend the day at LEGOLAND® Water Park and join in some friendly competition.
Firefighters from both fire departments, along with the help of their kids, competed for the title of fastest fire station in Southern California by racing down the Water Park’s latest addition, Riptide Racers. By the slimmest of margins, the home town team from Carlsbad Fire Department took home the coveted LEGO® trophy and bragging rights, of course, for the inaugural race. The crews were also treated to exclusive access to Surfers Cove, a steel drum band, LEGO characters and LEGO gifts before spending their day enjoying the more than 60 rides, shows and attractions at LEGOLAND California Resort.
“NFPA is so proud to be working with LEGOLAND California Resort to bring fun and fire safety together for children and their families,” said NFPA Senior Director of Public Education Andrea Vastis. “It’s a great opportunity to honor our first responders and drive home the message that safety is a part of our everyday lives and can be fun!”
Heroes Weekend takes place June 14-16 and is one many celebratory weekends in honor of LEGOLAND California’s 20th birthday. The event is filled with interactive activities for guests to enjoy including a special heroes pop badge challenge, character meet and greet appearances with LEGO® Officer Brickhouse, scavenger hunts, plus, the action packed new LEGO City 4D: Officer in Pursuit! 4D film, and much more.
