The UK’s only LEGOLAND Discovery Centre, located in Manchester, played host last week to a LEGO City themed speed build – ‘the Brick Factor’. Children had ten minutes to use as many bricks as they needed to build their creation, with Master Model Builder Alex Bidolak on hand to judge the entries. Each Brick Factor winner received a prize package including annual passes and LEGO City sets.
The winners were announced in a press release from the LLDC team:
Among the winners on the day was Mustafa Khan aged six from Longsight, Manchester whose fantastic model of a Batmobile and Batmobile parking space took the judges breath away. A LEGO Master Builder in the making! Mustafa said: “I’m really happy that I won, I love playing with LEGO and creating different sculptures and I’m really glad the master model builder liked my Batmobile!”
Dean Feasby, Marketing Manager at LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Manchester added: “The event has been a huge success and we just want to say well done to all of the youngsters that took part. Some of their creations rivalled even that of the Master Model Builder himself! We’re so pleased to have been able to get the young people of Manchester involved with LEGO and we have been blown away by their inventiveness and ingenuity.”
It has also been a bumper week for the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre as it welcomed its two millionth ticket holder through the door on Friday 26th August. The family were awarded with over £500 worth of goodies from the LEGO shop, a Merlin Annual Pass each and a VIP experience at the centre.
