Act Like Godzilla at Legoland!!

Legoland 2009

Had the chance to check out Legoland in San Diego for the very first time over Christmas. First, let me get the negative out of the way. It's a fucking rip-off. Adult Tix are $67.00 and Children ages 3-12 are $57.00. So for a family of four, you're looking $250.00 before you even get in the park. That's Disneyland kind of money and for that kind of money, we should be at Disney-fucking-land. Let's just say this, everything about Legoland sucks except for what you see here in "Miniland USA". And for me, Miniland is awesome and almost made the entire visit.

The heart of LEGOLAND® is Miniland USA. A dedication to the ultimate expression of the LEGO® art form, Miniland USA includes reproductions of seven areas of the United States, all constructed with 20 million LEGO bricks in 1:20 scale, that can be seen from many places in the Park.

A primary LEGO showpiece, Miniland USA is a celebration of American achievements, a canvas to illustrate the diversification of its peoples and cultures, past and present. The models demonstrate the heritage of the people, most of whom came from other countries.

Miniland USA presents famous landmarks built entirely from standard LEGO elements. Guests experience the wonders of Washington D.C., New Orleans, New York City, Florida, San Francisco and the Southern California coastline - in miniature - right down to the smallest detail. Also, don't miss Las Vegas which features a variety of whimsical and animated models that replicate scenes found in the actual city. For a nominal fee, you can even navigate your own mini boat in the LEGOLAND Marina.


Check out the video. Ithink what struck me first is that Miniland is not so mini. The New York skyscrapers are HUGE. 20' feet tall. But the attention to detail down to the funny things the Lego people are doing on the street are what makes Miniland.

SF was probably my favorite part for obvious reasons. I thought they captured it quite well.

The photos of the toys are really amazing and nice. Great work. Thanks for sharing it here. By the way I have came across a site named godzilla-toys.net where I found various Godzilla toys and figures which impressed a lot.
