Star Wars is coming to Legoland California's Miniland

Published: January 6, 2011 at 2:33 PM

Legoland California announced new attractions for 2011 today, headlined by the first fictional section of its iconic Miniland attraction.

Star Wars Miniland will debut March 31, 2011. This new section of Miniland will depict in Lego bricks scenes and scenery from the six Star Wars films plus the Clone Wars animated series. Until now, Miniland has depicted scenes from famous tourist sites around the world, though with sometimes fanciful spin. Legoland California will be the first to get the Star Wars Miniland, which is actually being built at the Legoland in Germany. That Legoland, along with the original in Denmark, will get copies of the Star Wars Miniland later this year.

Legoland California's also tweaking its popular Fun Town Fire Academy.

Fun Town Police and Fire Academy

On April 12, the ride will become "Police and Fire Academy" and half the teams competing will be rushing to knock down robbers with their water pumps, rather than put out fires. The switch should help encourage re-rides of an attraction that was already popular for multiple visits, given its competitive nature.

Legoland's also adding a new Duplo Zoo-themed toddler area to its adjacent water park. That will open May 26.

Legoland's press release explicitly said just two other parks getting it this year: Germany and Denmark. So, no, no Star Wars Miniland in Florida in 2011.
