Inside LEGOLAND wraps up with an eclectic mix of stories, from tending to underwater creatures to following the progress of a new ride being installed
It’s already the final episode of Inside LEGOLAND, which has offered an unprecedented glimpse behind the scenes at LEGOLAND Windsor Resort.
The DUPLO Dino Coaster arrived at LEGOLAND Windsor Resort this year, just a week before the theme park was forced to close due to restrictions to limit the spread of coronavirus. While it isn’t the most sophisticated or innovative ride introduced at the theme park, it’s still nice to see the progress of a ride’s design and see where the incredible upscaled models come to life.
Elsewhere in this episode, the Model Makers head to the LEGOLAND warehouse to dig out some old models, with a few of them being originals from when the LEGO Group first opened the attraction. It’s interesting top get a glimpse at how these old models are handled, how they are improved and cleaned up before getting new homes in the theme park.
One of the strengths of this series has been the diversity of teams that have been spotlighted. It’s easy to forget that one ride at the Windsor based attraction is basically a massive aquarium, so seeing how the underwater models are maintained is a nice diversion from the typical above ground activity.
Anyone who’s visited a LEGOLAND park is sure to find one little titbit the most fascinating part of the episode and perhaps the series – when the bottom of a Miniland car is removed, and the secret to how they drive around is exposed.
Inside LEGOLAND has proven to be a worthy addition to the television programmes made about the world of the LEGO brick, genuinely providing a slice of life and showing what goes on in the UK destination. What it has spotlighted in particular is how dedicated the staff working there are – and how that dedication is what keeps it a special place to visit. During these times when days out are limited and restrictions are in place, this has been the perfect reminder of what awaits when this testing time passes.
