Legoland Dubai has taken delivery of its first Lego model in the form of ‘Red Dragon’.

The 4m-long bricked beast is made from more than 230,000 Lego pieces, and weighs in at over half a tonne.

Once installed, Red Dragon will comprise the centrepiece of Legoland Dubai’s ‘The Dragon’ roller coaster.

Commenting on the arrival of the theme park’s newest resident, Siegfried Boerst, general manager of Legoland Dubai, said: “We are particularly thrilled to be announcing the arrival of the iconic Red Dragon model – not only because this is a significant milestone for Legoland Dubai, but also because this is one of the biggest and most animated models in the park.

“It’s fantastic to see Legoland Dubai coming together with the park’s first roller coaster installed and now our first Lego model,” he added.

Red Dragon will take centre stage in its new home, the Legoland Castle. With animated glowing eyes, a moving head, and an opening-and-closing mouth, visitors will witness smoke billowing from the creature’s nostrils as it guards the King’s treasure.

The half-tonne dragon will be the largest model in the Lego Kingdom area. In total, Legoland Dubai’s six themed areas will become home to 15,000 models, made from around 60-million bricks. The Lego models will accompany more than 40 interactive rides, shows, and attractions at the site.

Situated within the Dubai Parks & Resorts (DPR) master development, Legoland Dubai and Legoland Water Park are scheduled to open in October of this year.

DPR will also feature film-inspired theme parks motiongate Dubai and Bollywood Parks Dubai, as well as the Riverland Dubai retail, dining, and entertainment district.
