  1. I read somewhere, possibly in the original press release, that this would be the largest LEGOLAND in the world? That doesn't seem likely given the concept art and the budget. Does anyone know if that's true or how it compares to current open LEGOLAND parks?

    According to the press conference, Legoland Sichuan covers an area of about 365 acres, with a total construction area of more than 120,000 square meters, covering LEGO Factory, Bricktopia, Pirate Shore, Mini World, LEGO Castle, Dino Isle, LEGO City, LEGO Friends, LEGO Ninjago, and LEGO Water Park (under planning). This is the first Legoland in China following Denmark, the United Kingdom, Germany, the United States, Malaysia, the UAE, and Japan, and the ninth Legoland in the world.
    According to a set of statistics, Sichuan currently has 11 world-class tourism resources and more than 400 natural resources above the national level. Since 2014, Sichuan has achieved total tourism revenue growth of more than 100 billion for five consecutive years. Sichuan has a "family base" of resources such as history, culture and nature, and at the same time there are more top-level resources in the world, constantly upgrading and optimizing tourism in Sichuan.

    A Legoland has been in development for the area in China south of Chengdu in the vicinity of Tianfu New Area/Meishan for over two years. The “Legoland Theme Park of Tianfu New Area Signing Ceremony” took place on February 7, 2018. The “Sichuan Tianfu LEGOLAND Project Signing Ceremony” took place on September 15, 2019. Soon after on September 27, 2019 a press conference took place to formally announce ‘Legoland Sichuan Resort’:

    Merlin Entertainments (“Merlin”), a global leader in location based entertainment with brands including LEGOLAND, Madame Tussauds, SEA LIFE and the Dungeons, today announces that it has entered into a partnership agreement with Global Zhongjun Cultural Tourism Development Co., Ltd (“Global Zhongjun”) to build and operate a LEGOLAND Resort in Sichuan Province in Western China. The resort is scheduled to open by 2023.

    Under the terms of the agreement, Global Zhongjun will fund the construction of LEGOLAND Sichuan, as well as the required infrastructure and adjacent commercial developments, while Merlin will partner in the resort development and operate it under a management contract arrangement.

    LEGOLAND Sichuan will be located within the Tianfu New Area in the city of Meishan, approximately 60km south of Chengdu city centre. With good transport links by road and a future metro station planned for the area, LEGOLAND Sichuan will be within a two-hour catchment of 30 million residents. Chengdu and the surrounding region is also a popular tourist destination within Western China attracting millions of international and domestic visitors each year.

    The resort will open with two fully-themed LEGOLAND Hotels, with an estimated capacity of 500 rooms. It will also have scope to incorporate further attractions in the future.




    More recently further progress has been made when on February 27, 2020 the project’s environmental impact report was accepted. The report states “The proposed project is scheduled to start construction in March 2020, and is expected to be completed in September 2023.” When completed, the approximately 40 acre park will have more than 50 themed attractions, rides and more than 10,000 classic Lego models. The theme park will feature nine areas plus a waterpark which may or may not be a separate gate. The areas are shown below in the layout:



    On March 16, 2020, Deputy Governor Yang Xingping led a team to Chengdu and Meishan to investigate the progress of key tourism projects, including Legoland Sichuan Resort. He emphasized that while working to prevent and control the epidemic, construction of these projects should be restored and accelerated to effectively promote local economic development.
