Legoland California contains about 50 rides and attractions at the main park.  The original LEGOland park was developed in June 1968
and was called LEGOland Billund in Denmark.  Next came LEGOland London, built in the UK in 1996 and then LEGOland California in
Carlsbad on March 20, 1999.  LEGOland is operated by Merlin Entertainments Group which is the 2nd largest theme park operator in
Europe.  LEGOland California is a 128-acre park designed with children in mind with the ages of 2 through 12 years of age.  There are  
15,000 detailed lego creations built entirely of lego blocks in the theme park.  Some 20 million LEGO bricks are assembled to include
entire city landscapes to reproductions of a full size Volvo SUV.  This park has a few amusements that adults can enjoy, but most of the
park is designed strictly for kids.   

Lego was developed by a wood toy maker named Ole Kirk Christiansen in Billund, Denmark in 1932.  In 1934, Ole Kirk called his toys
LEGO, a contraction of the Danish words for playing well ('leg godt'). After buying a plastic injection molding machine in 1947 and after
much experimentation the first type of LEGO brick was developed.  These bricks were call 'Automatic Binding Bricks' when introduced
and later in 1958 inner tube circles were included in the bricks (which completed the transformation to the modern LEGO block we know
of today).
