Legoland Windsor Resort in England — now celebrating its 25th anniversary — has revealed some of the amazing attractions, experiences, and Lego models guests will see when the park’s new multi-million-pound attraction opens to the public on May 29, 2021.
“We’re thrilled to give our guests a first look at Lego Mythica: World of Mythical Creatures and showcase some of the attractions, experiences, and models that will be unveiled when we open in May,” said Legoland Windsor Resort Divisional Director Helen Bull. “We worked in partnership with Kids Industries and spent a year discussing and testing ideas and concepts with 7- to 11-year-olds and their parents who influenced everything from the final ride experiences, names, and characters. It’s amazing to see the journey from that point to now, and we’re confident Legoland fans will love Lego Mythica.”
The first-look reveal included the magical portal and entrance to the parallel universe of Lego Mythica where — having already proven their bravery — the Resort’s Model Makers have crossed over and are hard at work applying finishing touches to vibrant models like the Greek Mythology inspired Chimera, Troll, and The Hydra.
As previously announced, Lego Mythica: World of Mythical Creatures will be home to the U.K.’s first-ever flying theatre ride — Flight of The Sky Lion — but now guests can see first-hand the epic scale of the lead attraction (which stands over 82 feet tall) and its impressive exterior featuring Maximus the Sky Lion constructed from 685,530 bricks. The 4D Flight of the Sky Lion experience will immerse riders in the world of Lego Mythica with wind, mist, and even smell effects that have been synchronized with the attraction’s animated film.
Along with the exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the ride, the Resort has also released a teaser of the animated film that will allow guests to swoop, duck, and dive over an incredible landscape and come face-to-face with the realm’s many characters, including the Hydra and the Alicorns.
Additional attractions will capture the imagination of both adults and children alike, including the Fire and Ice Freefall drop ride that stands nearly 43 feet tall (the equivalent of 325 Lego Minifigures) and is defended by one of Lego Mythica’s guardians — Crystal Flame — and the Hydra’s Challenge, a thrilling water attraction guarded by Duo, another Lego Mythica guardian.
The new land will also feature an adventure play area called Lava Dragon Play; the Creature Creation where guests can build their very own Lego Mythica creatures; a character meet-and-greet experience, Creature Encounter; and The Hungry Troll restaurant and Beastly Bites snack bar. Plus, with the Augmented Reality App Experience, guests will be able to scan the Lego creatures and watch them come to life.
Day tickets start from about $40.00 per person (kids under 36 inches are free). Families can also book an overnight stay at the Legoland Windsor Resort Hotel or the Legoland Castle Hotel starting from approximately $475.00 for a family of four (two adults and two children) staying on selected dates in June 2021. A one-night hotel stay includes breakfast and one-day park entry.
