Master Model Builders Create a Scene of LEGO® Revelers Celebrating in Miniland New York Complete with Toilet Paper and Vaccine Distributions
CARLSBAD, Calif. (December 17, 2020) – Needless to say, this has not been the “bricktastic” year we were hoping for … so before Christmas even arrives, Master Model Builders Tim Sams and PJ Catalano are ringing in 2021 early at LEGOLAND® California Resort with a classic LEGO® brick drop in Miniland New York!
The family theme park in San Diego has been closed since mid-March and while guests and Park staff will have to miss the traditional and popular Kids’ New Year’s Eve celebration, hundreds of LEGO Minilanders are already ringing in the new year in a way that’s all too appropriate. The LEGO Miniland revelers are standing six LEGO studs apart (as close to 6 feet in Miniland terms as possible) as they wait in line to receive toilet paper and vaccine shots – the perfect party favors to end 2020
The scene includes a nearly 9-inch long LEGO brick cascading down into Times Square as the partying Minilanders – wearing masks, of course – await a merciful end to 2020 and make their New Year’s resolutions including seeing guests back in the Park in 2021! Last-minute holiday shoppers can stroll into Miniland U.S.A. to view the scene as they come to the Big Shop for the widest selection of LEGO products on the west coast! Check out the DIY mixed-up LEGO Minifigure station with specialty pieces never-before-seen in the Park and sets that have sold out at other retail locations.
