Operator Merlin Entertainments is to bring a second Legoland resort to China in Sanya, Hainan Province, to add to its already under construction development in Shanghai.

Merlin will again work with public equity firm China Media Capital on Legoland Sanya, having partnered with the company on the Shanghai destination, which will be completed in 2021.

Aimed at children aged 2-12, the park will offer interactive puzzle classes and will have a mini version of Sanya built from thousands of Lego bricks, as well as water parks.

The new Legoland is part of an aggressive push into the Asia-Pacific region in the past few years from Merlin, with other Legolands either recently finished or under construction in Japan, Malaysia and South Korea.

Hainan Province governor Shen Xiaoming, Sanya Municipal Party committee secretary Yan Chaojun, Sanya mayor A Dong, CMC chairman and CEO Li Ruigang, CMC vice president Xie Li and Merlin Group Asia project general Manager Ray Dubowa were all involved in the deal to bring the new Legoland to Sanya.

A statement said the two companies are partnering to “create a world-class integrated tourist resort” that will “stimulate children's imagination and wisdom”.
