LEGO® STAR WARS Miniland Models Arrive at LEGOLAND® Florida

WINTER HAVEN, Fla. (October 24, 2012) – Construction is underway on the newest expansion at LEGOLAND® Florida. Massive LEGO® Star WarsTM models such as the Lambda Shuttle, an iconic spacecraft found in Episode VI Return of the Jedi, have arrived at LEGOLAND Florida and model builders are busy making final adjustments and constructing the animations that are being installed in Miniland USA’s new cluster, LEGO® Star WarsTM Miniland Model Display.

 

“With over 1.5 million LEGO bricks to be constructed, this project required the assistance of our counterparts across the world. The LEGO Star Wars Miniland models were built in model shops in Germany and California. We have now received all 2,000 models that will make up the new Miniland USA cluster and have begun installation,” said Sam Dalessandro, Model Shop Supervisor at LEGOLAND Florida.

 

The new LEGO Star Wars Miniland display area will include a scene from each of the six live-action Star Wars movies, as well as a scene from the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars™ all created from more than 1.5 million LEGO bricks and built in 1:20 scale. Following a chronological path through the Star Wars timeline, guests will retrace the major events of the beloved Saga. Some of the 2,000 LEGO® models will be more than 6-feet-tall. Interactive buttons will allow children to activate animations throughout the scenes.

 

In addition to the amazing LEGO models found in the park, Central Florida’s newest theme park provides a full two day experience for families with children ages 2 to 12. The latest expansion of the LEGO Star Wars Miniland display area is scheduled to open November 9.

 

The new LEGO Star Wars Miniland display area will be included with park admission. The best way to experience LEGOLAND Florida for the best value is with the new LEGOLAND Florida Resident Pass. Pass members receive unlimited admission for 12 months to LEGOLAND Florida and the LEGOLAND Water Park, as well as all other Merlin US attractions (LEGOLAND California & Water Park, LEGOLAND Discovery Centers, Sea Life Centers and Madame Tussauds), free parking and 10% off Food and Merchandise with no black-out dates. A new monthly payment option of less than $10 per month is also available both at the front gate and online. The Monthly Payment Plan includes a down payment of $57.24 for an adult with monthly payment of $9.26 and $46.44 for child/senior with monthly payment of $7.51 (pre-tax).
