I am so excited to share this brand new email which just rolled into my mailbox a few minutes ago! A gigantic Red Dragon model made of more than 230,000 LEGO bricks is now set up at LEGOLAND! It is almost 4 meters long, weighing more than half a tonne! It will be one of the largest LEGO models in the park! They say that it will have animated glowing eyes, a moving head with an opening and closing mouth billowing smoke out of it’s nostrils as it guards the King’s treasure!
It is the first of 15,000 LEGO models made from 60 million LEGO® bricks that will be found throughout LEGOLAND Dubai’s six themed areas, along with more than 40 interactive rides, shows and attractions.
As of now the park has it’s first roller coaster installed and now the Red Dragon model. The park is scheduled to open this coming October 2016.
Scheduled to open in October this year, LEGOLAND® Dubai, together with LEGOLAND® Water Park, is part of Dubai Parks and Resorts which will also feature motiongate™ Dubai – a unique theme park showcasing some of Hollywood’s most beloved characters from DreamWorks Animation, Sony Pictures Studios and Lionsgate. Committed to bringing together the best of the East and West, Dubai Parks and Resorts will also feature Bollywood Parks™ Dubai, the first ever theme park based on the sights and sounds of Bollywood. The entire destination will be connected by Riverland™ Dubai – a retail, dining and entertainment walkway and guests can stay at the Lapita™ Hotel, a Polynesian-themed resort catering to families.
