Japan’s first Legoland theme park is coming to this city next spring, which will include a replica castle and a hotel for families.
Legoland Japan, an outdoor facility under construction in Minato Ward, is scheduled to open on April 1, 2017.
The operator of the theme park said May 19 it expects to attract about 2 million visitors during its first year of operation.
The 9.3-hectare park will feature a giant reproduction of Nagoya Castle made from more than 200,000 Lego toy bricks, and other outdoor displays.
It will be the world’s eighth Legoland. The Legoland Discovery Center in Tokyo’s Odaiba district and another in Osaka’s Tenpozan area are indoor facilities.
Denmark, where Lego bricks originated, the United States and other countries are home to other outdoor Legoland theme parks.
The price for an annual ticket for Legoland Japan will be 13,300 yen ($120) for children between ages 3 through 12, and 17,300 yen for individuals 13 and older, including tax. The sale of annual passes began on May 19.
The price for a one-day pass will be announced at a future date.
Legoland Japan will open a hotel with 250 guest rooms sometime after the park opens. The interior and exterior of the hotel will incorporate the designs of Lego bricks.
