LEGOLAND just keeps taking our breath away!
Only a few days away from its official opening (October 31, people!), Time Out got the chance to check out one of the latest and coolest additions to MINILAND.
As you can see from the pics, it’s none other than our much loved Burj Al Arab, smaller but just as impressive.
Made up of 268,176 bricks, it took 768 hours to build, measures 1.5 metres in height and weighs 680 kilos.
It stands in front of another Dubai landmark that’s also its neighbour in real life - Jumeirah Beach Hotel.
LEGOLAND creators have done a fantastic job recreating the surroundings, with life-like water and miniature LEGO figurines on jet skis and speedboats.
The Burj Al Arab replica is one of countless LEGO structures on display in the fully air-conditioned MINILAND, a vast 25-metre tall dome, set to impress children and adults alike with everything it has to offer.
Last week Time Out Dubai reported on the arrival of the world’s tallest LEGO structure to the city – appropriately a replica of the world’s tallest building – the Burj Khalifa.
There’s also a copy of Sheikh Zayed Road, the Gold Souk, Mall of the Emirates and other Dubai landmarks you’re sure to recognize.
But MINILAND is not just an homage to Dubai. You probably remember the awe-inspiring Taj Mahal replica we reported on last August (it’s made up of a whopping 280,741 pieces) as well as a display of the tallest buildings in the world, including the Makkah Royal Clock Tower, Taipei 101 and Shanghai World Financial Centre.
