Video: The building of Legoland Dubai – Episode 1

The following video details the construction of Legoland Dubai’s Miniland dome, which houses Lego replicas of iconic structures from across the Middle East

The following video details the construction of Legoland Dubai’s Miniland dome, which houses Lego replicas of iconic buildings from across the Middle East.

Legoland Dubai is the first Legoland theme park in the world to feature an indoor Minliand dome.

Dubai’s Miniland boasts 14 different clusters, which feature Lego models built at model shops operated by Legoland’s parent company, Merlin Entertainments.

More than 20 million Lego bricks were used to build Legoland Dubai’s Miniland structures.

Siegfried Boerst, general manager of Legoland Dubai, said: “What we did in Dubai is very unique; we decided to build the very first indoor Miniland dome we have ever built in any Legoland park.

“Once the dome itself was constructed, we built the pedestals. We have 14 different clusters here in Miniland at Legoland Dubai.

“We are building iconic features of the region, and the models that we find in Miniland [Dubai] are built with more than 20 million Lego bricks,” he added.

The following video, which offers a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the building of Legoland Dubai’s Miniland, is one of five films that ConstructionWeekOnline will publish during the course of the coming week.
