Winter Haven, FL-- If you felt a disturbance in the force today, it may have been coming from LEGOLAND in Winter Haven. A legion of pint-sized Darth Vaders in ebony robes and shining masks marched for the official opening ceremony of LEGO® Star WarsTM Miniland Model Display.
The new Star Wars themed Miniland took 1.5 million LEGO bricks to recreate scenes from each of the Star Wars movies, The Clone Wars.
"Star Wars is just a hugely popular brand. The LEGO Star Wars brand and the product are one of the best selling toy products in the world. So making a Star Wars Miniland display was an obvious choice for us," said Adrian Jones, LegoLand Florida's GM.
You can also find the famous Cantina scene from the original Star Wars movie and replicas of Luke Skywalker's x-wing and the Millennium Falcon.
The new Miniland will be included with park admission. For more information, visit the LEGOLAND Florida website.
