Miniland Las Vegas debuts at Legoland California

Published: March 29, 2007 at 11:08 PM

My apologies for my lack of posts this week. I've been preparing for the online journalism conference I run at USC each spring. I've been so busy that I was not able to make it down the road to Carlsbad for Thursday's debut of Miniland Las Vegas at Legoland California.

More than two million Lego bricks went into the recreate of 10 hotels from the Las Vegas Strip, including the Luxor, New York, New York, Tropicana, Excalibur, MGM Grand, Paris, Mirage, Treasure Island, Venetian and the Stratosphere. (No Palms? No Hard Rock? Where will they put the little Lego Hilton sister getting plastered then?)
