Flight of the Sky Lion is the UK’s first flying theatre and stands at more than 25 metres tall. It takes visitors to a parallel universe brimming with mythical LEGO creatures, including the two-headed Hydra and the Chimera. Brogent Technologies, a leading manufacturer of media-based attractions, supplied the flying theatre ride system.
Legoland Windsor has also released information about the other rides at Lego Mythica, including two drop towers called Fire and Ice Freefall and a water attraction named Hydra’s Challenge.
The land includes 13 mythical creatures created from more than 1.7 million Lego bricks. The resort’s new augmented reality (AR) technology bring the Lego creatures to life.
Lego Mythica: World of Mythical Creatures is the single biggest investment and largest expansion at Legoland Windsor since it opened in 1996.
