A tiny team marks a big success as LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort creates miniature LEGO® England squad
To celebrate England’s biggest success in the FIFA Men’s World Cup since 1990, the LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort has added a tiny LEGO® squad to its world-famous Miniland attraction. The miniature team, made up 704 LEGO bricks, stands pride of place outside a LEGO model of St. Basils Cathedral.
The Resort’s talented Model Making team have even included a 10cm tall Gareth Southgate, wearing his famous waistcoat made up of just 7 LEGO bricks. Miniature England fans also join their heroes in the Russia area, a new addition to the Miniland attraction for 2018, including a colourful St. Basils Cathedral made up of a staggering 28,816 LEGO bricks.
The iconic building was recreated by 4 model makers, standing at just over 1m tall, and was just one of the new landmarks added to the world-famous Miniland attraction for the 2018 season. Other additions include a staggering 4.4m tall Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, and the Taj Mahal made up of over 47,000 LEGO bricks.
Lauren Moss, Senior PR Manager at the LEGOLAND Windsor Resort, commented ‘Ahead of England’s last 2018 World Cup match, we felt it was only right to mark the efforts of this fantastic team. Our Model Makers had great fun creating the tiny scene, from the 23 LEGO brick England flags, to the tiny football made from just 6 bricks. We can’t wait to see our guest’s reaction to the new scene, which will be on display until the end of the summer.’
The scene has been added to the attraction just before the England heroes enter their final match of the tournament, however guests will be able to come and see the miniature team in place until the end of August.
