Inside The LEGO Vault & Idea House Revisited

As I checked my phone this morning, a ‘memory’ flashed up to tell me it was four years ago to this very day I was in Billund, Denmark wandering around the fabled LEGO® Idea House vault. I shared this on Twitter, which seemed to be popular so I’ve gone through the pictures I took of my visit and added them to previous articles detailing my time in the LEGO Idea House and its special vault.

One such game was LEGO Racers, a fairly primitive looking, racing adventure, which introduce the world to driver extraordinaire and Master Builder Rocket Racer.
