Timelapse video shows first giant creature being assembled for Legoland Windsor’s new Mythica land

A monstrously mesmerising timelapse video has been released showing a gigantic creature being assembled for Legoland Windsor Resort’s new Lego Mythica: World of Mythical Creatures land.

The beast is a suitably mythical Chimera with four heads – a shark, snake, eagle and lion – and is the first of 13 new giant Lego mythical models being created in Lego’s master workshop for the park.

The Chimera, which comes from Greek mythology, weighs a whopping 334kg and took 12 model-makers 653 hours to build using 109,522 Lego bricks.

Expected to open in spring 2021, Lego Mythica: World of Mythical Creatures marks the resort’s single biggest investment since the gates opened 25 years ago and will feature ‘thrilling new attractions and experiences, including a never-before-seen UK ride’.

Legoland Windsor said that the team behind the new land spent a year discussing and testing ideas and concepts with seven to 11-year-olds and their parents, who influenced ‘everything from the final ride experiences, names and characters’.

The Legoland Windsor Resort is also offering children aged between two and 16 the chance to design the 14th Lego Mythica model, to be installed in the new land later this year.

To enter the competition, kids should submit a photo of their Lego creation or drawing of their model to the ‘Create a Creature’ competition page on the Legoland Windsor Resort website. For more information visit www.LEGOLAND.co.uk/Create.

Marianne McGoldrick, Marketing Director at the Legoland Windsor Resort, said: ‘It’s been an amazing experience to watch the team build such a diverse set of large-scale Lego models which have been inspired by the imaginations of children. Each mythical character is so unique and like nothing else we’ve ever featured at Legoland Windsor before.

‘It takes our model-makers many hours to intricately turn thousands of different sized and coloured Lego bricks into these incredible models and we can’t wait for families to meet the Chimera and learn more about its role in the story of Lego Mythica when the land opens later this year.’

Thomas Jellum, divisional director at the Legoland Windsor Resort, said last year when the Mythica land was announced: ‘What better way to celebrate our 25th birthday than by unveiling a unique experience like nothing else we have launched at the resort since we opened.

‘At the heart of Lego Mythica: World of Mythical Creatures will be epic rides, including a UK-first, and breathtaking mythical creatures designed to capture children’s imaginations and inspire them to build and play.

‘Our new land has been two years in the making and co-created with families to make sure it delivers what children and their parents want from a theme park in 2021.’

Legoland Windsor is one of eight Legoland parks across the world.

The others can be found in the Danish town of Billund, California, Florida, Germany, Dubai, Malaysia and Japan.
