Is it though? That DUPLO looks suspiciously like cardboard cutouts on sticks.
The train itself is clearly made from DUPLO bricks...
I'll give you that. Still...
By the looks of this one that can only be a good thing!
Who on earth is in charge of this marketing campaign?
A "world first" that literally nobody could care less about and concept art which makes the coaster look simultaneously barren and hideously garish.
IMAscore have uploaded the Haunted House Monster Party music!
So...... let me get this right poultons park a family run park develop and promote a whole new area for 2020 with regular updates and photos. And Merlin ( a company second only to Disney remember! ) develop a catapilar ride themed to duplo to replace the busy water play area. Errrrrr is this what their development and marketing team can come up with? Are they planning on developing a waterpark for the hotel?
Duplo dream coaster is being placed in an area not used by any attractions or water play areas. It's a bit of grass with nothing previously there
Sorry I thought I had read it was replacing the Duplo splash play area somewhere. I apologise for the inaccuracies
Confirmed on Twitter this afternoon that Star Wars miniland is to shut on 31st December 2019. Interesting this comes just after Lego California announced they're removing the star wars mini land there.
I believe that Star Wars is being removed from all Lego parks worldwide. Suspect Disney pulled the plug?
Star Wars is a joke hence them pulling out.
Rocket Racers 3?
I'm guessing there are plans for a new attraction (or shop) to take its place in the parks. To be fair it was pretty hidden away and no where near the Miniland area.
They just need to do what LEPIN do and change the name to Star Wnrs and claim it's totally unrelated to Disney IP
Guessing the contract came up for renewal, and Disney weren't too keen for it to continue after there rediculously huge investment in Star Wars attractions. Not too unsuprising really. I guess LEGO will continue to own the rights to make the toy sets though.
So as well as the new kiddie coaster for 2020 it looks like Atlantis Submarine is getting a refurb/retheme.
Also, the Castle is getting a repaint, finally. This has looked terrible for the past few years.
It looks set to be a good year down at Legoland in 2020, I'm so happy to see the castle being repainted because it looked shocking this year, it had got past looking weathered and just looked grubby and dirty, so this is a huge improvement.
It's nice to see the park getting so much TLC lately, with The Beginning, Laser Raiders, Vikings River Splash, Legoland Express, Submarine Voyage and other parts of the parking being refreshed I think Legoland looks the best it has done in a long time, hats off to them!
(I've also noticed Raft Racers has been repainted as part of the Duplo Valley refurb as well)
The Dragon Castle deffientley needed it. And the colours are Lego legal too! Was afraid of an all grey or offcoulour repaint.
I wonder if this surge of winter TLC is a rapid response from Kirbi, now they have taken over?
The Lego brand is obviously the one they understand best, so the one they could get on with quickest if they saw presentation as being an issue to them.
If it is, then lets hope they have a look at TLC at the bigger UK parks in 2020 too... the other UK parks all need improvement around their look and atmosphere.
