Re: New, exclusive 4D Lego Movie to be introduced at Legolan

In another bit of sorta-related-but-not-really-news, it seems that there's gonna be more than one new 4D movie this year... https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CXpdd2PWYAETeW_.jpg To be honest I kinda expected this, seeing as Nexo Knights is Lego's "big bang" (AKA: majorly advertised to a stupid d...

Billund's also posted a video about their version with a model of the ride building there (in lego! :D ) : https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=BHjFbLYQHz4 I can see some elements of the backstory and the rest of the ride (eg: the mad scientist and the other rooms in the house...

The front of the building will probably look like an extended version of this:

I wasn't expecting the back to look like that though. Looks like the Monster fighter's refuge perhaps?

Re: Haunted House Experience Plans Submitted

Sounds like a good idea to have a haunted house at Legoland with a drop tower, but that Monster Fighters Lego theme came out TWO YEARS AGO and only one of the sets from that range is still sold at the moment (this one: http://brickset.com/sets/10228-1/Haunted-House ) and its only available online an...

Re: Oblivion ride vehicle in LEGO. (WIP)

Hello everyone, sorry for the lack of updates recently, I've been incredibly busy preparing for my upcoming GCSEs and stuff like that. Anyway, I've got quite a bit to go through, so I'll get to the point: On April 30th, Lego CUUSOO (that crowd-sourcing site for Lego I mentioned in my first post) is ...

Just to the left of the red angry bird on the catapult.

Re: Oblivion ride vehicle in LEGO. (WIP)

Right, its update time again! :D I've made some significant progress on the seats and nearly finished the front rails. The black slope in the center needs to be improved (and needs a decal too, I'll work on that). https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7449/13886916271_5970d6e64b_c.jpg https://farm4.staticf...

Oblivion ride vehicle in LEGO. (WIP)

You may have noticed by now that I am a very big lego fan, and I've been thinking about this as an idea for ages, so recently I've decided to go through with it: What I'm going to do is build a Minifigure-scaled version of Oblivion with a small section of track as a display base, and when I've finis...

Rocket Racers was by far the best ride there, and its quite a shame that they removed it. :(

Re: What Would You Be Most Surprised To See At Alton Towers?

I would be surprised to see a simulator ride, something like Star Tours but themed around Doctor Who or something.  :D I doubt it would happen though.  I would also be happy if Merlin gave Duel some well needed TLC, but they'll probably just leave it in its current condition.  :(

Using the same track/car system, they could add a new dark ride close by and have it themed around Dr Who, that would work for me. but leave the HH/Duel alone and keep your hands off my blaster!
  Yes, a Dr Who ride would be great,  :D I would like it to be a simulator ride though.

I think that they may just change the orange and grey paint job to Yellow and black, but who knows? They may have something else in store...
