Legoland Windsor resort unveils Lego Mythica first look
The Legoland Windsor Resort has released a first look inside its new multi-million-pound attraction, LEGO Mythica: World of Mythical Creatures.
For the first time ever, LEGOLAND Windsor showcases some of the awesome attractions, experiences and LEGO® models guests will see when LEGO MYTHICA opens to the public on 29 May this year.
Following on from the announcement that LEGO MYTHICA will be home to the UK’s first ever flying theatre ride – Flight of The Sky Lion, guests can now see first-hand the epic scale of the lead attraction which stands at over 25 metres tall!
As well as its magnificent exterior, guests can also now see a glimpse inside this UK first, as the Resort’s team experience the new ride themselves and carry out the final tests before opening. The Flight of the Sky Lion is a 4D experience, exciting the senses with wind, mist and even smell that has been synchronised with the animated film to fully immerse families in the world of LEGO MYTHICA.
Along with the behind the scenes look at the ride, the Resort has released a teaser of the animated film that will transport guests into the world of LEGO MYTHICA when they board. They will swoop, duck and dive over the incredible landscape and come face to face with the realm’s many characters including the Hydra and the Alicorns.
Joining The Flight of The Sky Lion at LEGO MYTHICA will be an array of other attractions that will be sure to capture the imagination of both adults and children alike. Unveiled for the first time today is the Fire and Ice Freefall, standing at 13 metres tall (the equivalent of 325 LEGO Minifigures) this drop ride is defended by another one of LEGO MYTHICA’s guardians Crystal Flame.
With the weather warming up, guests will be thrilled at the reveal of Hydra’s Challenge, an exhilarating water ride that is also protected by one of LEGO MYTHICA’s guardians Duo. Aspiring explorers will need to prepare to get wet on Hydra’s Challenge as they steer their own vessel on this thrilling water attraction.
The first look reveal includes the magical portal and entrance to the parallel universe of LEGO MYTHICA where – having already proved their bravery – the Resort’s Model Makers have crossed over and been hard at work applying finishing touches to the LEGO MYTHICA models. Guests will see detailed and vibrant LEGO models such as the Greek Mythology inspired Chimera, Troll and The Hydra.
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 guests can build their very own LEGO MYTHICA creatures; an adventure play area called Lava Dragon Play; a character meet and greet experience, Creature Encounter and The Hungry Troll restaurant and Beastly Bites snack bar.
LEGO MYTHICA: World of Mythical Creatures is currently under construction and will be found between Heartlake City and the Resort’s LEGO-themed Hotels. As the UK plans for a booming summer of staycations, this new addition to the hugely popular Resort, now celebrating its 25th anniversary, will be a huge hit with parents and kids alike as they enjoy more freedom and fun following a difficult period of lockdown for families across the UK.
