LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort has unveiled the first ever images of its new multi-million-pound attraction, LEGO® MYTHICA: World of Mythical Creatures, with workers making the final touches for its planned opening date of 29th May.
As pictured above, the attraction has shared some snaps which show builders making some slight adjustments to the attractions, experiences and LEGO® models that schools will see when they’re able to visit.
Standing at more than 25 metres tall, LEGO® MYTHICA will be home to the UK’s first ever flying theatre ride – Flight of The Sky Lion. The ride will be at the heart of the new themed land which marks the park’s single biggest investment since the gates opened 25 years ago.
Once aboard the flying theatre ride, LEGOLAND® has said that people will quite literally be taken under the Sky Lion’s wing and transported to the parallel universe of LEGO® MYTHICA, where the creatures from the new land come to life.
Riders will swoop, duck and dive over the landscape of the parallel universe and will meet many of its characters along the way, including the two-headed Hydra (Duo), Fire and Ice Bird (Crystal Flame) and the Greek mythology inspired Chimera creature.
Some of the pictures show the resort’s team taking part in the the new ride themselves to carry out the final tests before opening.
Workshops for all ages
The team offers a range of educational workshops to accompany a schools visit to the resort. Some examples include:
- Science of Rollercoasters (KS2 & 3): build and design a LEGO Rollercoaster and explore how forces and energy act upon them.
- Underwater Creatures (KS1 & 2): dive into the amazing underwater world of the LEGO City Deep Sea Adventure.
- Around the World (KS1 & 2): Identify and locate the Earth’s Continents and Oceans on our bespoke LEGO® map.
Joining The Flight of The Sky Lion will be several other attractions including the Fire and Ice Freefall, which stands at 13 metres tall and is defended by another one of LEGO MYTHICA’s guardians Crystal Flame. A new water ride will also see visitors steer their own vessel.
Helen Bull, divisional director at LEGOLAND Windsor Resort, said: “We’re thrilled to give our guests a first look at LEGO MYTHICA: World of Mythical Creatures and showcase some of the attractions, experiences and models that will be unveiled when we open in May.
“We worked in partnership with Kids Industries and spent a year discussing and testing ideas and concepts with seven to 11-year-olds and their parents who influenced everything from the final ride experiences, names and characters. It’s amazing to see the journey from that point to now and we’re confident LEGOLAND fans will love LEGO MYTHICA.”
Also set to feature in the new land will be the Creature Creation where children can build their very own LEGO MYTHICA creatures; an adventure play area called Lava Dragon Play and a character meet and greet experience.
