    Default LEGOLAND Florida's Apollo 11 tribute!

    Love this from LEGOLAND Florida:

    WINTER HAVEN, FLA. (July 19, 2019) – LEGOLANDŽ Florida Resort built something out of this world to celebrate and honour the 50th anniversary of the historic landing of Apollo 11.

    The theme park built for kids constructed a life-size LEGOŽ Astronaut model comprised of almost 66,000 LEGO bricks!

    In addition to the eye-catching astronaut model, LEGOLAND Florida also assembled a moon landing-inspired mosaic background built from more than 44,000 LEGO bricks!

    The model will be displayed at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex for a year before moving to its permanent home at LEGOLAND Florida Resort where guests will be encouraged to take pictures with the replica moon lander.

    Facts about the model include:

    • One model designer spent 143 hours designing the astronaut model
    • Five model builders spent a combined 450 hours building the astronaut model
    • Approximately 65,600 LEGO bricks were used to construct the astronaut model


    Facts about the LEGO mosaic background:

    • One model designer spent 58 hours designing the mosaic
    • Six model builders spent a combined 480 hours building the mosaic
    • Approximately 44,500 LEGO bricks and 23 different colors were used to complete the mosaic
