In the following video, the brains behind Legoland Dubai offer a behind-the-scenes tour of the theme park’s Miniland area.

More than 20 million Lego bricks were used in the construction of Legoland Dubai’s Miniland structures.

It took more than 200 model builders from around the world to complete the area.

Siegfried Boerst, general manager of Legoland Dubai, said: “[Legoland Dubai’s] Miniland has been a project that has been in the making for over three years.

“More than 200 model builders around the world were working on it. I’ve seen many Minilands, but this is by far the best Miniland that we have ever built in any Legoland park.”

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 and beyond.

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 offers a behind-the-scenes tour of Legoland Dubai’s completed Minland area, is the last of five films that ConstructionWeekOnline has published this week.
