The Force is coming to LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort, March 2012

Posted by ,

Star Wars minilandIf you've been to one of the mainland European or US LEGOLAND parks recently you've probably seen the Star Wars themed areas in miniland.

Now, this year, we're getting one at Windsor. We've been sent this image and a press release to whet your appetite:

March 2012 will see the opening of LEGOLAND Star Wars™ Miniland Experience at LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort.

The new indoor fully themed Star Wars Miniland Experience will painstakingly recreate seven of the most famous scenes – six from the beloved Star Wars films and one from the smash hit animated series: Star Wars: The Clone Wars, using around 1.5 million LEGO bricks.

Planned in close consultation with Lucasfilm Ltd, Star Wars Miniland Experience will follow a chronological path through the Star Wars timeline and feature around 2,000 LEGO models in 1:20 scale from the planets Naboo, Geonosis, Kashyyk, Mustafar, Tatooine, Hoth, Endor and Christophsis. Created by dozens of model designers and builders, landscapers, animation electricians and technicians, the area will also feature authentic Star Wars sounds, actions and lighting effects further immersing visitors into the Star Wars saga and bringing the experience to life.

Sue Kemp, Divisional Director of LEGOLAND Windsor Resort commented, “We are delighted to have Star Wars as a permanent part of LEGOLAND, having successfully tested the water with our extremely popular Star Wars events. The Saga’s universal story about the battle between good and evil has transfixed adults and children over many decades and we expect it to be phenomenally popular with our visitors of all ages.”

LEGOLAND Star Wars Miniland Experience will be located in the centre of the Resort, which is set in 150 acres of beautiful parkland. The park features 55+ interactive rides, live shows, building workshops, driving schools and attractions and a LEGOLAND themed hotel which is opening in March 2012.

I'm sorry, but what's the difference between putting a SW Miniland display in the Resort and in the actual park? Are they putting the display in the Hotel? Is the LEGOLAND Windsor Park called a Resort? Because the LEGOLAND in Billund is actually called a Park, but they have a Resort. Is it the same in Windsor and I'm just getting mixed up?

This looks totally awesome and I'm really looking forward to it. Have exactly no idea where in the park it's going though.

I think, now it has a hotel it's a 'resort' rather than just a 'theme park'.

Having seen the one at Billund in 2011, damaged and with bits missing (i.e. stolen); I'm not surprised they've gone for an indoor setup this time.

@energyarrow: actually, it's Obi Wan holding a light saber, and he's standing next to a clone.

^Yeah. I almost thought it was a clone, then I took a closer look.

Im looking at the droids and they different is some way, are they a different design to make it easier to place lots of them??

@rolomolo123454 All the figures are brick-built and more like 10 cm tall--they're not normal minifigures.
I look forward to seeing this if and when I'm back in the country.

the clones are not brick built If you view full size you can see that they are minifigs
