As the LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort opens its doors for the new season; the Park has released an exclusive drone’s eye view of the iconic new additions to its world-famous Miniland attraction.

Giving a unique first look at the famous landmarks from across the world, the drone footage explores every brick of Miniland’s brand new LEGO sights including recreations of the Taj Mahal (Agra) St. Basil’s Cathedral (Moscow), the Sydney Opera House (Sydney) and the Forbidden City (Beijing).

Taking 55 LEGOLAND Model Makers more than 12,000 hours to build, the footage gives a first glimpse of Miniland USA; a whole area dedicated to the United States. Iconic American landmarks recreated from hundreds of thousands of LEGO®bricks make up the New York City skyline, with the Empire State Building standing at a huge 4.4 metres tall, and the world-famous Statue of Liberty made from 44,000 perfectly matched ‘Yoda Green’ coloured LEGO bricks.
