Lego - The Wonderful World of LEGOLAND Model Building
In the next step, model designers calculate how many bricks they will need and what
shape and color they should be. These bricks are supplied by a warehouse which
stocks all commercial LEGO elements. Particularly difficult model components are first
made in prototype and then built up brick by brick. For improved durability, all bricks
are glued together, and the finished model is given a coating of UV protection varnish.
Thus completed, the masterpiece is ready to be set up in the LEGOLAND Park, where
electricians, mechanics and gardeners add animation effects and plants to ensure that
LEGO models appear as realistic as possible.
There is Much to Do ≠ Maintaining and Adding to the Models on an Ongoing
Basis
Every morning, before the LEGOLAND Park opens its gates to visitors, the model
designers take a turn round MINILAND, checking the models and their animation,
making necessary repairs, and shining up its tiny LEGO population. What is more,
LEGO specialists have their hands full even during the winter break. Houses and other
buildings are cleaned, the water is drained from the small canals running through
MINILAND, and all animated models of cars, trains, and ships are brought into the
model workshop for safekeeping.
During the months in which the Park remains closed, the designers use their time to
plan and produce new LEGO figures and buildings. Frequently, they follow up ideas
and suggestions proposed by visitors, including the first large-scale project to be
completed in GŁnzburg which has been on show in MINILAND since April 12, 2003:
Neuschwanstein Castle in LEGO format.
A note for the editor:
On May 17, 2002, LEGOLAND Deutschland opened its gates in GŁnzburg, Bavaria. The fourth Theme Park
of the LEGO Company worldwide was visited by more than 1.3 million guests in its first season. On April
12, 2003, the Park will enter its second season with a number of new attractions.
