“We worked in partnership with Kids Industries and 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,” added Bull.
“It’s amazing to see the journey from that point to now and we’re confident Legoland fans will love Lego Mythica.”
F&B offerings at Lego Mythica, which is currently under construction close to Heartlake City, include the Hungry Troll restaurant and Beastly Bites snack bar.
Lego Mythica: World of Mythical Creatures is the single biggest investment and largest expansion at the Windsor theme park since it first opened in 1996.
