    Is it though? That DUPLO looks suspiciously like cardboard cutouts on sticks.

    The train itself is clearly made from DUPLO bricks... :tonguewink:

    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.

    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.

    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:p

    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.
