In June 1968, LEGOLAND® Billund, a Lego-themed theme parks.owned and operated by the British theme park company Merlin Entertainment.opened for the first time on a 9 acre site. All buildings, landscapes and vehicles were built using standard LEGO bricks. The parks are marketed to families with younger children ages 2 through 12. Each park is 100+ acres with more than 50 rides shows and attractions.
