Brandon Kleyla of the Indyfans
documentary and the fine folks at LegoLand teamed up on March
29th for a day to celebrate the return of Indy, entertain fans and
also bring smiles to everyone there, especially some extra special
kids! Brandon sent me these report and some photos to pass along
the event to fans who couldn't make it out for the celebration.
It was a wonderful day that was also covered by USA Today, so
expect to see the article both online and on newsstands on either
Tuesday (April 1st) or Wednesday (April 2nd)!
With a park attendance peaking 11000 guests, INDYFANS DAY at
Legoland California was a huge success. Guests were greeted by
a group of adventurers that were in search of treasure, as well
as Chris Devlin, an Indyfan dressed as everyone's favorite archaeologist,
Indiana Jones. And if you had a quick eye, you could also catch
The Monkey Man running around. But guests were being careful,
as he was more than happy to hold ladies purses all day, or maybe
even trade a monkey for their baby. Throughout the day, guests
could meet Indy, Marion, Belloq, The Monkeyman, Short Round, and
for the first time EVER, Mutt and Spalko!
Guests were also wowed by the skills of bullwhip artist Pony
R. Horton. Mr. Horton showed everyone a few Indy-ish whip tricks,
and also explained in detail what a bullwhip is and how it really
There was also Indy trivia that was taking place throughout the
day! Prizes included Indyfans t-shirts, brown fedoras, LEGO Indiana
Jones Temple sets, signed copies of "Indiana Jones: Off the
beaten path," family 4-packs of tickets to Legoland, and
In association with Legoland , Indyfans gave out over 100 tickets
to the Wishland Foundation. "This is a great organization
and we were very proud to be a part of making this a special day
for the kids" says Brandon Kleyla, Indyfans director. The
Wishland Foundation helps families with terminally ill children.

Thanks Brandon for the report, the photos and for making it a special
