This is the original legoland, opened in 1968 and built next to the original lego factory. Suck it, California. As with any theme park, the place was divided into several ‘worlds’ - Miniland, Duploland, Adventureland,etc. The park may be small (covered it in 5 hours), but it does hold its own. And for the first time, I didn’t see endless junk food stands and giant huge soda cups.
We did a fair amount of stalking and snapping sneaky picture of cute kids. But I must say, some parents go all out. They squish their 1.8m frame into these little mobiles just so the little one has a companion.
The POWER BUILDER targets older kids and adults! You get to pick and choose the intensity of the ride, and the type of moves the coaster does. Naturally, we chose the ones that seemed to fling us all over the place, at the highest speed! Pretty intense, I say.
Miniland is where they recreate notable landmarks. Since I’m not headed to the Neuschwanstein Castle, I’ll just make do with this lego version! Below is the picture of the Bergen fisherman’s wharf. It really does look like the real deal.
FREAKIN’ SINGAPORE AIRLINES, GUYS. This is a model of their A380 plane which took an entire team of professional Lego model builders 600 hours to build. And used over 75 000 bricks!
We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun. Couldn’t ask for better weather. Broke out the shorts, flirted with lego men and screamed my lungs out.
That’s all till June! I have to study now :(
