Bob the Builder 4-D film to debut at Legoland

Bob the Builder In 4-D: Bob the Builder and the Roller Coaster will debut at Legoland California and Legoland Windsor in March 2009. The film will open in Germany and Denmark in April.
In the movie, which is a co-production of SD Entertainment and Threshold Animation Studios, Bob the Builder and his crew build a roller coaster, starting with a Lego brick model and then working up to the real thing. Of course, there are a few problems, and lessons about teamwork along the way.
But can they build it? Yes, they can. (And in the sequel, Bob and his friend David Axelrod will help a Chicago politician run for U.S. president.... Sorry, easy joke.)
Seriously, Bob the Builder is a perfect fit for the Legoland parks, and his inclusion in a park attraction is long-overdue. Legoland's 4-D theater is not as technically advanced as those at other parks, with fixed bench seating instead of moveable chairs. But Legoland's target market of younger visitors isn't looking for an intense thrill experience, either. We'll see how the film plays when in debuts in Carlsbad this spring.
