An awe-inspiring new land which transports children and their families to a parallel universe of epic adventures and mythical creatures, is now open to guests at the LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort.
LEGO® MYTHICA: World of Mythical Creatures opened to guests just in time for May half-term on Saturday 29 May and features incredible rides, attractions, and experiences, including the UK’s first flying theatre ride – Flight of the Sky Lion.
Investing £20m into the Resort, this awe-inspiring mythical world was created by kids for kids and is the single biggest investment in the park since it first opened its doors 25 years ago, this year.
“We are so excited to welcome children and their families into the incredible world of LEGO MYTHICA; the first and only land of its kind on earth. Guests can build, create, and let their imaginations run wild, whilst making incredible memories together as a family once again. We are really proud to launch LEGO MYTHICA during our 25th anniversary year which is a huge achievement for all of the team who have worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic to bring this magnificent world to life.”Helen Bull Divisional Director, LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort
Standing at a whopping 25 metres tall, the Flight of the Sky Lion ride is at the very heart of the multi-million-pounds new land. The mind-blowing ride and 4k film are perfectly synchronised with immersive effects, whilst guests are flown through a LEGO portal soaring over the stunning animated landscape of LEGO MYTHICA. They will feel mist as they swoop over the ocean; wind as they dive down to the depths and even smell the baby LEGO lava dragon’s burp!
As well as the Flight of the Sky Lion ride, mini thrill seekers can also test out the 13-metre tall (the equivalent of 325 LEGO Minifigures) Fire and Ice Freefall drop tower ride. Meanwhile, the Hydra’s Challenge will measure explorers’ mettle as they prepare to get wet and steer their own vessel on this exhilarating water ride, with a 481,000 LEGO brick model of the Hydra Sea Monster bursting from the depths below.
Aside from the rides there are also plenty of opportunities for families and children to build their own mythical creatures at Creature Creation and see some of the 13 new LEGO MYTHICA models that have taken a team of Model Makers nearly a year of building and over 1.76 million LEGO bricks to create.
If that doesn’t get guest’s creative juices flowing, the Lava Dragon Play; a character meet and greet experience with the loveable character Bits and Bobs and The Hungry Troll restaurant are also available.
Finally, guests can brave the LEGO MYTHICA Augmented Reality Experience in the LEGOLAND App, which enables guests to scan LEGO models in the land and watch them come to life, open up a portal at home and even collect a limited-edition POP Badge providing a spy hole into the world of LEGO MYTHICA!
Day tickets start from £29 per person and children under 90cm go free. For more information and to pe-book tickets at www.legoland.co.uk.
