Stormtroopers manning the turnstiles, Droid workshops and Jedi training camps are just some of the activities in store for guests as the LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort celebrates the official opening of the new LEGO® Star Wars™ Miniland Experience on the 24 and 25 March.  PLUS the first 100 little fans who turn up as their favourite Star Wars characters will get in absolutely free. 

 

The indoor fully themed LEGO® Star Wars™ Miniland Experience will painstakingly recreate seven of the most famous scenes – six from the beloved Star Wars™ films and one from the smash hit animated series: Star Wars: The Clone Wars™, using around 1.5 million LEGO® bricks. Following a chronological path through the Star Wars™ timeline and featuring around 2,000 LEGO® models in 1:20 scale from the planets Naboo, Geonosis, Kashyyk, Mustafar, Tatooine, Hoth, Endor and Christophsis, the area will also feature authentic Star Wars™ sounds, actions and lighting effects further immersing visitors into the Star Wars™ saga and bringing the experience to life.

 

And for one weekend only you can also enjoy the opportunity to climb aboard a life size Landspeeder for a photo. Would-be Jedi juniors can hone their lightsabre skills at Jedi training camp, and all can enjoy the spectacle of a battalion of Stormtroopers marching through the park as they search for their Star Wars™ heroes; Han Solo, Princess Leia, Luke Skywalker, and Chewbacca, who will be roaming the Resort.

 

The event is included in the normal LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort ticket price, FREE for under threes and to Premium Annual Pass Holders. Pre-booking is advised to guarantee entry at www.legoland.co.uk. Booking online means you enjoy a 10% discount on day ticket prices and you can print your tickets at home for quick entrance on the day: adult ticket from £38.88 and child (3-15) from £30.78.
