LEGO Star Wars Miniland leaving LEGOLAND California

LEGOLAND California’s LEGO Star Wars Miniland is leaving the resort in January, Merlin Entertainments has announced.

The miniature land from a galaxy far, far away has been a mainstay of the park for the past eight years, depicting scenes from Star Wars: Episodes I-VII in 1:20 scale. The display includes recreations of Naboo, Geonosis, Kashyyyk, Mustafar, Tatooine, Hoth, Endor and Jakku – but you only have until January 6, 2020 to check it out for yourself.

“Since opening in 2011 with additions made year after year, the LEGO Star Wars Miniland model display has been popular for children and their parents,” said LEGOLAND California Resort General Manager Peter Ronchetti.

“We are thrilled we were able to bring this generational experience to our guests and hope those who have yet to see it, or want to revisit with their friends, will come experience LEGO Star Wars Miniland before it leaves us in January and before we prepare to build new memorable experiences for guests.”

There’s no word yet on whether a replacement attraction is in the works, nor whether the LEGO Star Wars Minilands at LEGOLAND Windsor and LEGOLAND Malaysia will be following suit and shutting up shop.

Update: The press release states that LEGO Star Wars Miniland will be leaving “LEGOLAND Parks” on January 6, 2020, which sounds like it’s vanishing from Windsor and Malaysia, too.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
