As fun as it might seem, even Lego model-makers have deadlines and budgets.
"We have to buy in all our bricks, the same as everyone else, so we have to work out how many hours and bricks each model will take".
"Everything here is what you can buy in the shops; it's just that we're very lucky and have a lot of them.
The idea is that if you come to the park and you see something you like, if you have enough bricks, you could produce that yourself.
The models are glued together, but every brick has to be "Lego-correct", placed stud to stud without any cheating.
Legoland (trademark in uppercase as LEGOLAND®) is a chain of Lego-themed children's/family theme parks.
They are not fully owned by Lego Group itself; rather they are owned and operated by the British theme park company Merlin Entertainments.
It has over 55 interactive rides, attractions, live shows, building workshops and driving schools, not to mention a staggering 80 million LEGO® bricks, all set in 150 acres of beautiful parkland.
The parks are marketed to families with younger children (11 and under), and although the attractions include a number of roller coasters, the roller coasters are not as numerous or as extreme as those in other parks, and there is a greater emphasis on rides suitable for younger children.
Legoland parks are split into various areas, which are consistent among the chain's parks. For example, all six of the parks include a Lego miniland, a model village which includes models of landmarks and scenes from around the world, made from millions of genuine Lego bricks.
