Some of you may recall that I have extolled the virtues of Legoland last year. I’m not in the habit of repeating myself consciously but this place is really worth talking about. As per, I was invited to go to the Adult Night at Legoland. One can compare the different themes by reading both posts. Or just looking at the pictures if you can’t read, no judgment here.
The fabulous above picture is in the building room adjacent to the Master Builder’s Office (featured image) I imagine this is in connection with the Sealife Centre which is just around the corner. I recommend this place also, just not on a weekend. There are only so many screaming toddlers one should tolerate at once.
What amazed me most about this month’s theme is the references to cult films scattered around Miniland. Observe the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man from Ghostbusters and the little Ghostbusters themselves tending to him lovingly by the Birmingham Library.
Observe the angry Octopus coming out of Edgbaston Reservoir heading straight for the Waterworks Tower (which was Tolkien’s inspiration for Sauron’s Tower in Lord of the Rings franchise – Matthew informs me this is in Barador, no now he is telling me it is called Bar a Door. Now he informs me it is not spelled thus and is deploying numerous expletives).
Observe the frightful spider’s web on the Wesleyan Building in Snow Hill. Even the detail of the authorities at the foot of this building is well thought out. I am thoroughly impressed with this month’s display.
I really hope you will go to Legoland this month. Therein lies a feat of the imagination which few places in this town can boast.
