This weekend LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort reopens for the festive season and the much of the park has been transformed into a winter wonderland. Beginning this Saturday, enjoy a festive-themed makeover of Miniland, take a trip on the Christmas Hilltop Train, check out a number of Christmas Big Builds and of course, visit the big man himself, as Santa’s Grotto will be open. Santa’s Little Helpers have been busy adding those finishing touches to the park ready to welcome back guests.
SANTA’S LITTLE HELPERS ADD FESTIVE FINISHING TOUCHES TO THE LEGOLAND® WINDSOR RESORT
With the countdown to Christmas well and truly on, LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort’s expert Model Makers, along with assistance from some of “Santa’s Little Helpers”, have been hard at work ensuring that the park is full of festive sparkle ahead of re-opening for the Christmas season on Saturday 1st December.
“Santa’s Little Helpers” have been busy overseeing and helping the park’s Model Makers put the finishing touches to the park and some of the spectacular Christmas LEGO® models, including an incredible 8-meter LEGO Christmas tree, two life-sized LEGO reindeer, a brick-built Santa Claus that took over 190 hours to build, along with exciting festive additions to Miniland including a bustling Christmas market in London’s Covent Garden.
Standing an impressive 8 meters tall, the LEGO Christmas tree, built from over 300,000 LEGO bricks, returns to take pride of place at LEGOLAND for the Christmas season – with guests invited to build their own festive decorations to take home.
Other festive additions helping to spread Christmas cheer in the park include nine Christmas puddings made entirely of LEGO bricks, each weighing 4.7kg – the equivalent to nearly ten real Christmas puddings – two life-sized reindeer made from a combined 126,000 LEGO bricks along with a huge 54,000-brick Santa Claus weighing over 120kg for little ones to discover!
“Christmas is always an extra magical time of year at LEGOLAND Windsor and this year is no different”, commented Lauren Walton, Head of PR at LEGOLAND Windsor Resort. “Our team of Model Makers have been working hard preparing the park for the festive season – with some extra special help from “Santa’s Little Helpers” – ensuring all is just right to welcome guests through our gates on the 1st December.”
Whilst at LEGOLAND this Christmas, guests can discover an enchanted Christmas land, where little ones will meet Father Christmas in his magical grotto and receive a LEGO Christmas gift. LEGOLAND will also be offering a special Secret Shopping Service for all parents stocking up on LEGO goodies for Christmas. When staff members hear the word ‘Rudolph’ they will jump into action, distracting kids with a range of diversion activities to allow parents to shop without worrying about their little ones getting a peek at their Christmas gifts.
