    Third Legoland in China is now officially under construction!

    Located in Fengjing town, Jinshan District, the LEGOLAND Shanghai Resort is on the southern side of Jinshan North Station and north of Tingfeng Highway. Covering approximately 31.8 hectares, the Resort has been invested in by JUIC, KIRKBI, Merlin Entertainments and CMC Inc., with the park expected to open in 2024.

    As the first family-focused international IP-based theme park resort in the Yangtze River Delta area, it is designed to provide 2- to 12-year-old children and their families with unique theme park experiences which integrate local Shanghai features and traditional water town elements.

    It is also the first LEGOLAND Park to have a land themed on a famous LEGO product line inspired by a timeless Chinese legend. Based on the classic novel Journey to the West and the 500-year-old legend of the Monkey King, Monkie Kid™ is designed to connect Chinese children with their heritage and unleash their creativity. Based on this popular story, LEGOLAND Shanghai Resort will build a unique Monkie Kid zone that takes on references from traditional Chinese architectural style and China’s iconic nature landscape.
















    Legoland Shanghai Resort will also introduce world-class rides, use VR, AR, and other new technologies and elements to create a brand-new amusement experience, and combine the Lego spirit of “hands-on, interaction, and sharing” with edutainment. Lego's concept is integrated into it to provide tourists with a fun experience of technology-enabled play.

    That was fast - here's the full detailed layout of Legoland Shanghai - it's very similar to Shenzhen and Sichuan.

    Under the guidance of government functional departments such as the Municipal and District Development and Reform Commissions, the Market Supervision Administration, and the District State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission, the Shanghai Legoland Resort Project Joint Venture Company successfully passed the anti-monopoly review of the State Market Supervision Bureau and completed the industrial and commercial operation before the Spring Festival of the Year of the Ox For registration, the business license was obtained one and a half months earlier than originally scheduled. Both the first registered capital of the joint venture company and the first foreign investment of the project were paid in place on the first day after the holiday, and the "good start" of the New Year was successfully achieved.
