Christmas is coming, and it’s officially started at LEGOLAND Windsor Resort! In the run up to their ‘Christmas Bricktacular‘ the clever model-makers have given the wonderful ‘Miniland’ a festive makeover.
Have a look at the video.
The minute illuminations are exact replicas of the sparkling ball shaped lights that run along London’s Oxford Street hung in Miniland’s 380cm long version of the world famous shopping avenue; but at 3, 4 and 5.5cm in diameter they are 20 x smaller than the real things. Created from 822 transparent LEGO bricks they will light up daily.
Even the Royal Family are in the Christmas Spirit!
Meanwhile over at Buckingham Palace the Miniland Royal Family are wrapped up in specially commissioned miniature knitwear. Ready to brave the cold at an al fresco Christmas dinner. The Queen and HRH Prince Philip are wearing tiny hats and scarves. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and HRH Prince Harry are donning suitably festive Christmas jumpers. Whilst Princess Charlotte and Prince George are keeping warm in miniature mittens and hats with a Santa hat for Lupo, the Cambridge’s Cocker Spaniel.
The table is laid out with a LEGO-licious spread including Christmas pudding, turkey and tiny LEGO Christmas Crackers. There’s even a special bright red LEGO post box for the little Royals to post their letters to Santa.
At dusk, buildings including Edinburgh Castle will be lit up and guests will have fun spotting elves and reindeer. Plus there will be a flying visit from Father Christmas himself.
Meet Father Christmas at LEGOLAND!
The Christmas Bricktacular will see the park open on a limited basis on 3rd & 4th, 10th & 11th and 17th – 24th December 2016. It’s limited in so much that only 20 of the park’s rides and attractions are open. It’s an ideal time to wrap up warm, and enjoy some of the rides, and the Christmas cheer throughout the resort! You can also take the kids see Father Christmas in his magical grotto and receive a LEGO gift too! The ‘Big Shop’ will also be open for you to grab some gifts – the staff can also distract your kids with the password ‘Rudolph’ to give you the time to grab goodies in secret.
We’re heading to the park on the opening weekend to see what’s happening, so be sure to check back for the full low-down. I’ll try and see how the Castle Hotel is looking!
