Star Wars Miniland debuts at Legoland California

Published: March 31, 2011 at 9:18 PM

Legoland California today opened a new Star Wars-themed addition to its Miniland collection of Lego models.

This is the first addition to a Miniland from the world of fiction, though many other fictional and storybook models adorn other sections of the Legoland theme parks.

Star Wars Miniland will debut later this year at the Legolands in Germany and Denmark. (There are no plans, as of now, to add a Star Wars section to the Miniland at Legoland Florida, now under construction for an October opening.)

Here's a time-lapse video from Legoland of the new Star Wars attraction under construction:

I'm hoping to get down to Carlsbad early next month for a look, and will file more photos then.

Looks really cool.

Is the park worth seeing for adults without kids?

Unless you're a Lego Fanatic, I wouldn't go to Legoland without bringing kids. I haven't been with the new Star Wars Miniland yet, so that may change as I'm a Star Wars geek for sure. The attractions/ rides however are either for kids only, or encourage families to use them. Maybe if you can get discount tickets? And then work your way to Sea World the next day, or Disneyland the next day?
