In 1999 the most popular baby names were Jake and Emily. Those babies have all grown up, and so has Legoland California, who revealed their plans for a massive 20th birthday celebration, and two new characters…Jake and Emily.

The characters were on hand to introduce the all new 20th Birthday Dance Party. The new interactive show features the Park’s newest LEGO Characters, Jake and Emily, who were named in tribute to the two most popular boy and girl baby names the year the Park opened in 1999. The special 20th Birthday Dance Party show can be seen daily starting March 16 through Sept. 1 and is filled with singing and dancing for all families to enjoy.  

That’s not all… for LEGOLAND California’s birthday on March 20, 2019, the first 1,000 kids entering the Park will receive free child-size minifigure hands and guests will be treated to a special birthday-themed Park opening ceremony where one lucky child celebrating their birthday will get an opportunity to officially open the Park for the day.

The LEGO birthday cake, created out of more than 51 thousand LEGO bricks, will also be on display showcasing the many attractions that have been added to the family theme park since it was “born” 20 years ago.  The year-long celebration also includes a new LEGO Friends Birthday show, exclusive birthday desserts, pop badges and more. And as LEGOLAND California’s gift to its younger guests, all children ages  12 and under  get in for free on their  birthday all year long.
