CARLSBAD, Calif. (Dec. 20, 2017) – Want to give a child a gift they’ll never forget? Invite them to be one of the first to stay at LEGOLAND® Castle Hotel when it opens in spring 2018! While construction teams work to build the nation’s first LEGOLAND Castle Hotel, Master Model Builders are working just as rapidly building the more than 2,100 LEGO® models for the Hotel including the iconic model of the royal statue that will greet guests as they arrive.
A team of Master Model Builders spent 1,243 hours creating this statue that represents all of the key figures of the LEGOLAND Castle Hotel in one monument: A Wizard, Princess, Jester, Knight, King and Queen are all represented in front of the 250-room, entirely castle-themed hotel. The LEGO model is created from 251,565 LEGO pieces, weighs 1,563 pounds and took 750 hours to develop and build! In fact, because of the size of the model, it took 133 hours to carefully disassemble it and pack it up to ship to Carlsbad, California from overseas.
