November 7, 2020 – Construction of a Shaghai Legoland theme park will start in 2021. With an investment totaling $550 million, it is set to become one of the largest Legoland parks globally when it opens to the public in 2024, according to officials at the signing ceremony held at the Shanghai Tower.
The park, to be built in a partnership of the Jinshan government, Merlin Entertainments, Kirkbi Invest A/S and CMC Inc, will be constructed in the 700-year-old town of Fengjing.
Interactive visual, audio and other technologies will be used to make it an immersive storytelling theme park. Designers will draw inspiration from popular destinations from Jinshan and surrounding areas in the Yangtze River Delta region to create iconic attractions.
The design will feature Chinese culture, Shanghai flavor and unique Jiangnan (regions south of the Yangtze River) elements and the park will have Lego-themed hotels and restaurants, making it a world-class resort that will attract families from across the region.
