‘Lego Masters’ brings top three models to Legoland Florida Resort

by Susan and Simon Veness

“Lego Masters,” the brick-building competition show, finished its second season on Fox just in time to display the first, second, and third place models at Legoland Florida Resort as part of the park’s 10th anniversary celebration.

The competition between 12 two-person teams was fierce during season 2 of “Lego Masters,” but in the end, brothers Mark and Steven Erickson of Atlanta, Ga. walked away with the coveted Lego trophy and a $100,000 cash prize for their build, titled “Warden of the Woods.”

The country’s newest recipients of the title of “Lego Masters” and “most talented amateur Lego builders” also won the honor of having their outstanding build displayed in The Big Shop at Legoland Florida, starting on Oct. 1.

Also on display starting Oct. 1 is Zack and Wayne Macasaet’s “Pagoda of our Lives,” representing the brothers’ heritage and key moments in their lives.

Already on display is the outstanding “Lands of Time” build, created by third-place winners Caleb and Jacob Schilling, and can be seen in The Big Shop.

All models will remain on view as part of the park’s ongoing birthday surprises.

Among the brick-building challenges teams participated in were an earthquake tower challenge, a demolition derby, a fashion show of enormous Lego brick hats, and the finale, a build in which models had to transform from a daytime look to a nighttime look.

It was a “battle of the brothers” as the final three sibling teams were given 24 hours to create their models during the season finale. Ultimately, judges Amy Corbett and Jamie Berard, along with show host Will Arnett and his alter-ego “Will Puppet,” granted the “Lego Masters” title to Mark and Steven.

Open displays of the top three models are designed to encourage guests to explore and be inspired by the builds through full 360-degree views.

Kids (and adults!) can then take that inspiration into the park and put their own Lego building skills to the test through various Lego building activities.
