LEGO Oculus Building Unveiled

Ready for LEGOLAND New York's Miniland

As thousands of people streamed in and out of New York’s newest transit hub at the World Trade Center, LEGOLAND® New York Resort unveiled a LEGO® version of the Oculus building, the giant building in which all of this was taking place. The reveal was hosted by the lucky winners of the park's Kid Reporter Search.

Created out of more than 40,000 LEGO® bricks, the three-foot-high Oculus model took Master Model Builders about 555 hours to design and build. This is the first LEGO model that has been announced to be installed in LEGOLAND New York Resort as part of Miniland, a massive panorama of interactive, animated LEGO built cities from across the country.

“Just as the Oculus is among the newest iconic additions to the New York City skyline, our LEGO Oculus model is one of the newest iconic additions to LEGOLAND New York Resort,” said LEGOLAND New York Public Relations Manager Matt Besterman. “We’re building the ultimate LEGO theme park experience just 60 miles away from New York City, and we’re proud to feature this amazing structure as part of it.”

Also unveiled were the details of the limited edition “First to Play” pass, which comes with the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience LEGOLAND New York Resort before it officially opens.

LEGOLAND New York Resort will open in spring 2020. Check out the reveal in the video below!
