Video: The building of Legoland Dubai – Episode 3

In the following video, the brains behind Legoland Dubai explain what it took to replicate iconic Middle East construction projects in Lego form

In the following video, the brains behind Legoland Dubai explain what it took to replicate iconic Middle East construction projects in Lego form.

In addition to UAE landmarks such as Dubai Marina and Burj Al Arab, Legoland Dubai’s Miniland features replicas of Petra in Jordan and the Egyptian pyramids.

Siegfried Boerst, general manager of Legoland Dubai, said: “I believe that anybody who walks into the Miniland dome at Legoland Dubai will be overwhelmed by what they are seeing.

“There’s so much detail; so many iconic features and everything built out of Lego bricks. It’s just awesome.”

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

The structure houses 14 different clusters, which feature Lego replicas of iconic buildings from across the Middle East.

Each model was built at workshops owned by Legoland’s parent company, Merlin Entertainments, and shipped to the UAE via air freight.

The following video, which outlines the recreation of some of the Middle East's most iconic construction projects, is the third of five films that ConstructionWeekOnline will publish this week.
