Imagine a town where all the buildings and animals are made of LEGO. How many LEGO bricks do you think it would take to build? A model size of that town would consist of 60 million LEGO bricks and can be found in Denmark, where LEGO was invented. Today we went to check it out at LEGOLAND one of the top amusement parks in the world. The park is filled with activities for the entire family with a focus on challenging you to set your imagination free and embrace your inner child. The park started off with just the miniland opening in 1968 however has evolved since then with additions, rides, and waterparks.The largest model in the park is of Mt. Rushmore, built out of 1.5 million LEGO bricks.
The park is divided up into themed areas. The most recent addition to the park is the Polar X-Plorer, their largest roller coaster. The surprise 5 meter free fall near the end is completely unexpected, giving you quite the adrenalin rush! Throughout the roller coaster you encounter animals from the arctic made out of LEGO bricks. Pirate Land is another fun area where you can sail through a Pirate’s cave as they fight over stolen jewels and treasure. Even the trains and boats within the park are made of LEGO! Visiting the amusement park was the perfect end to our trip to Denmark.
