Gotta catch ’em all at #LEGOLANDCA

Who’s new in town?  That’s right…Pokémon, and word on the brick is that LEGOLAND® California Resort is swarming with them.  We understand the desire to catch ’em all when your visiting the Park, we just ask that you follow our safety guidelines to make sure no human or Pokémon is harmed during the process.

Rules for a safe Pokémon GO quest at LEGOLAND California Resort:

For your safety, do what our signs say.  Do not follow the lead of any Pokémon!

Even a Pokémon Master must stay within guest areas. Please don’t climb any fences or follow any Pokémon into employee-only areas.

No catch is worth sacrificing your safety. All play must pause throughout the duration of your ride until you exit the ride.

Be sure not to bump into one of our LEGO® models – that could hurt!

With more than 40 Pokémon to catch, be sure to stay hydrated when exploring the Park.

If hours of play have unleashed the power of your phone, recharge at the various phone charging stations around the Park.

If your wild encounter leads you to Wyldstyle, Kai or any other LEGO friend, keep in mind they may need to stop for a selfie with another guest before you can make your catch.

Nick Offerman Tells of His Experience during ‘The LEGO® Movie™ 4D A New Adventure’

LEGOMOVIE4D_Wallpaper1

“’Really hard’?! Wiping ye bum with a hook for a hand is ‘really hard’!  This be impossible!” -Metalbeard, The LEGO® Movie™

Want to know what Captureisn’t impossible?  Getting to hear more side-splitting pirate lingo from Metalbeard, this time in a whole new kind of experience. Returning as the voice of Metalbeard  in “The LEGO® Movie™ 4D A New Adventure” is actor, Nick Offerman. We were able to sit down with Nick and ask him about his behind the scenes experience.

Q:  What was your reaction when you were asked to voice MetalBeard again for this unique LEGOLAND attraction?

A: I sincerely love voicing MetalBeard for the LEGO projects, as it reminds me of the animated characters of my youth, like Popeye and Grape Ape and The Flintstones. I also love working with Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the writer/directors. They operate from a place of love and decency, with just a little mischief thrown in the mix.

Q: What was it like working with Rob Schrab and the team behind this attraction?

A: I have worked with Rob on Children’s Hospital and Parks & Recreation, so it was like a nice reunion of old pals from summer camp. We just tried to make each other laugh with silly renderings of dead-serious pirate-y mayhem.

Rob Schrab directed and co-wrote the attraction and is set to make his feature film directorial debut on “The LEGO® Movie™ Sequel” for Warner Bros.

Q: If you were to create your own LEGO version of Nick’s MetalBeard…what kinds of items would you have attached to your Minifigure?

A: A charcoal grill, 2-man bucksaw, harpoon, peregrine falcon, small well-fed pig, fireman’s axe, Offerman Woodshop baseball bat, small keg of rye whiskey

‘The LEGO® Movie™ 4D A New Adventure’ premieres at LEGOLAND California on Feb. 6 and will air several times a day in LEGO® Show Place throughout 2016.
