Scandinavia’s first flying theater to open as part of LEGOLAND Billund’s newly announced LEGO MOVIE World in 2020

On June 27, LEGOLAND® Billund revealed the park’s largest investment so far in the form of THE LEGO® MOVIE ™ World, opening in 2020. The new 5,000 m2 themed land, featuring three new rides aimed at different age groups, is being made in collaboration with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, and is inspired by the characters and themes of the global hit films The LEGO Movie and The LEGO Movie 2.

“We are very pleased to have another new land and three new rides here in LEGOLAND. It will be a unique and thoroughly exhilarating experience, and our guests will no doubt feel that they are entering the amazing universe they know from the LEGO films,” said Christian Woller, director of LEGOLAND Billund.

The first flying theater in Scandinavia

Guests will not sit still in front of a giant screen when LEGOLAND Billund becomes the first amusement park in Scandinavia to get a flying theater. They will float around while watching an engaging movie on a huge 180 degree screen. The effects have also been increased, so they can expect wind, fog and scents in the new attraction.

“It will be exciting to have an amusement like this one. The big screen and the movements make it feel like flying inside the film, and then the LEGO theme just works really well for this type of amusement, where you are drawn into the LEGO universe,” said Woller.

During the flight, guests can, among other things, look forward to a trip into space, fly past pirates and experience some of the well-known areas of the LEGO films.

Fly around at a height of 14 meters

THE LEGO® MOVIE ™ World also offers another high-flying ride that caters to the bigger children. Here they control their own aircraft and decide for themselves how much the aircraft should rotate.

“It will be a really fun and flying attraction, which caters to the slightly larger children, where there must be a bit of speed, and where you can well get a bit crazy before landing with the plane again. So you should not be too scared to get your head down,” says Woller.

Fun for the whole family

Another central part of the area will be a huge playground with a 10 meter high play tower. Outer Space is the theme, and the children can, among other things, try two large roller coasters.

There will also be the opportunity to enjoy the view from a 12 meter high drop tower that builds on the Unikitty character from the LEGO films.

“THE LEGO® MOVIE ™ World gets a really good combination of something for the whole family, so there is no doubt that we are looking forward to adding another fantastic country to the LEGOLAND experience,” says Christian Woller.
