The new multi-million-pound land created by children, LEGO® MYTHICA: World of Mythical Creatures, will feature new rides at LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort, opening next spring.
The themed world is the theme park’s biggest expansion since it opened 25 years ago, with schools able to make use of new attractions and experiences, as well as a never-before-seen UK ride.
Created for kids, by kids, LEGOLAND® has said that the parallel universe will see children’s creativity run wild as mythical LEGO® creatures come to life in front of their eyes.
The team behind the new land spent a year discussing and testing ideas and concepts with seven to 11-year-olds and their parents who influenced everything such as the final ride experiences, names and characters, meaning pupils of a similar age will be able to relate to the themed world.
Fancy creating your own creature?
The team are giving one lucky winner the opportunity to shape the world of LEGO® MYTHICA forever by creating their very own creature to be brought to life and featured in the new world - it will be the first time a model of this scale will have been built in the park.
Children are encouraged to come up with their own story of the creature, how they move, what they eat and if they have any special powers. Entries can be submitted in any form too, whether it be a drawing, a model, a project or a story.
The competition closes on January 31st, 2021. More information is available here.
Thomas Jellum, divisional director at LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort, said: “What better way to celebrate our 25th birthday than by unveiling a completely unique experience like nothing else we have launched at the Resort since we opened.
“At the heart of LEGO® MYTHICA: World of Mythical Creatures will be epic rides, including a UK first, and breath-taking mythical creatures designed to capture children’s imaginations and inspire them to build and play.”
School tickets to the theme park usually include full day entry to the resort, free teacher tickets for groups of certain sizes, free coach parking as well as a range of optional workshops to choose from.
