Milpitas community briefs for the week of Oct. 16

New opening date for Legoland

The opening of the Legoland Discovery Center Bay Area at the Great Mall in Milpitas was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but its operator now says the attraction is on track to open next spring.

“Our No. 1 priority is to create a fun and educational experience while ensuring the health and well-being of our guests and staff,” said Legoland Discovery Center Bay Area General Manager James Judy. “We are taking every step necessary to prepare for a safe and exciting opening.”
In addition to following safety regulations, the local Legoland  plans to implement enhanced cleaning measures throughout the day at high-frequency touchpoints, play areas and Lego bricks.

The 31,000-square-foot Legoland Discovery Center includes themed build stations, master classes in the Creative Workshop from Legoland Discovery Center Bay Area’s master model builder Sam Suksiri, and a Miniland area featuring Lego models of San Francisco Bay Area landmarks such as the Winchester Mystery House, the Golden Gate Bridge and Levi’s Stadium.
