LEGOLAND Windsor host special Miniland visual impairment experience

On Saturday 9th April, the Accessibility Experience Team and Paula Laughton, Creative Co-Ordinator at LEGOLAND Windsor hosted Yuen Har and her family for a very special LEGO brick touch and feel session in the Resort's famous Miniland.

Yuen Har, who is registered blind, contacted LEGOLAND Windsor to ask if she would be able to experience Miniland through her hands. Anna Neary, the parks Accessibility Experience Co-Ordinator set about making Yuen's dream to ‘see’ Miniland come true!

Together they organised for Yuen Har to come in before the Park opened to the general public to tour the LEGO world!

Paula spoke Yuen Har through each model as she held them in her hands, explaining the different bricks the team used for Minilander hair, animals, windows and gargoyles as well as the technology behind the animations. Yuen Har was able to feel as trains whizzed past in Scotland and as the NASA rocket launched.

"We were delighted to help a LEGOLAND fan's dream come true with a unique Miniland experience alongside our very own model expert, Paula. It was amazing to be able to offer this to Yuen Har, as it had been something she’d wanted to do for so long and her family were so pleased."
