Visitors to the park will be able to get into the Christmas spirit when the massive tree is fully unveiled on November 27. The construction at the Windsor attraction is made of 364,481 LEGO and Duplo bricks and stands nearly 33ft tall.
In total the LEGO Christmas tree took 2,909 hours to put together and features baubles, candy canes and candles. On top of the tree is a large LEGO star which weighs 80kg and is itself made of 5,251 LEGO bricks.
“We’re really excited for what is set to be one of LEGOLAND Windsor’s biggest Christmas celebrations yet,” said the resort’s chief model maker, Paula Laughton, “as our guests and their families plan to make up for lost time and enjoy some magical memory-making this winter, which they couldn’t do because of restrictions last year.”
A special festive lights switching-on event will take place at LEGOLAND Windsor on November 27. Visitors will get to see the attraction transformed into a winter wonderland, meet Father Christmas in his magical log cabin and make themselves a LEGO mini train at the Christmas building workshop. LEGOLAND Windsor is due to reopen for the Christmas season on select dates up to January 3, so check the park’s website for more information.
