LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort unveils giant, LEGO themed sand sculpture
The LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort unveiled its first ever giant sand sculpture in July, depicting a family of huge LEGO® Minifigures enjoying the summer sun on the beach. The enormous creation has been hand-crafted over four days by professional sand sculptor, Raymond Wirick to celebrate their new ‘Summer of Fun’ event.
Set to wow children with its size and scale, the sculpture is constructed from 20 tonnes of sand – the equivalent of a whopping four million LEGO bricks – with the sandy LEGO Minifigures standing at 48 times bigger than their tiny real-life counterparts at six-foot tall.
Lauren Moss, Senior PR Manager at The LEGOLAND Windsor Resort, commented: “We’re well used to creating spectacular LEGO builds at the Resort, thanks to our talented team of Model Makers, but working with Raymond to create this awesome sand sculpture is completely new for us and our guests, and hugely exciting.”
Raymond Wirick, Sand Sculptor, commented: ‘It’s been fantastic seeing the reactions from the guests during the past four days as I’ve been sculpting the LEGO Minifigure family. Little ones have been asking lots of questions, if it’s real sand, and how can they make their own sand sculptures. I can’t wait to see the guest’s reactions now the sculpture is complete, and hope it will inspire lots of sand castle creations at LEGOLAND’s pop-up beach nearby.’
