Legoland has released a first look inside its exciting new multi-million pound attraction, which opens next month.
The popular tourist attraction in Windsor has unveiled pictures of models and rides within Lego Mythica: World of Mythical Creatures, which will begin welcoming visitors from May 29.
Amongst the attractions is the UK's first ever flying theatre ride called Flight Of The Sky Lion which stands at over 25 metres tall.
The resort's team say they are now in the final stages of work to get the new experience ready, which includes carrying out final tests and being able to try the ride for themselves, ahead of the much-anticipated opening which is just in time for this May's half term break and bank holiday weekend.
The Flight of the Sky Lion is a 4D experience, with wind, mist and smells synchronised with an animated film to fully immerse families in the world of Lego Mythica.
Other new rides include Fire and Ice Freefall - a 13 metre drop ride - and with warmer weather hopefully on the way Hydra's Challenge could also be a popular stop for thrill seekers who will have to get wet to steer their own vessel through the water attraction.
Helen Bull, Divisional Director at Legoland Windsor said: “We’re thrilled to give our guests a first look at Lego Mythica: World of Mythical Creatures and showcase some of the attractions, experiences and models that will be unveiled when we open in May.
“We worked in partnership with Kids Industries and spent a year discussing and testing ideas and concepts with seven to 11-year olds and their parents who influenced everything from the final ride experiences, names and characters. It’s amazing to see the journey from that point to now and we’re confident Legoland fans will love Lego Mythica."
Whilst model makers are hard at work putting the finishing touches to an array of Lego Mythica models young budding brick builders will also be amused with a new feature called Creature Creation where guests will be able to build their own Lego Mythica characters.
A new adventure play area called Lava Dragon Play, a character meet and greet experience combined with new restaurants and snack stops are set to make the new land extremely popular with theme park fans.
