Let’s Play: At the Legoland 1

I have no idea when I became a person who goes to amusement/theme parks. Probably an unexpected side effect of becoming a parent and family cultures. We were not a family that went to theme parks. In fact, the only one I ever visited was the original Legoland in Denmark when I was six years old on a holiday with my parents. Mr’s family usually didn’t have money for a holiday, so their holidays were occasional day trips that included amusement parks*, so when the two merged and the kids learned about the concept of theme parks, we became people who go there.

Since the Easter holidays were badly timed, we decided against a week in nearby France and instead booked a two days trip to the Legoland in Bavaria. The very redeeming feature there is the wonderful Lego creations, which I’ll share with you, together with the anecdotes of the Giliell family at a theme park.

Our first attraction was the Safari, where you sit in little cars that roll on trails through the savannah.

Interestingly, the grey animals come out looking like badly pixelated images from the dawn of computer graphics in the pictures.

You could get a nice shower there.

*We do come from families that are remarkably similar and different at the same time.

    I have first seen the picture and I got awfully confused as to why the zebra is so pixelated when the plants around it are not. Then I read the text.

    Yes, my eyes have been very frustrated with these photos, especially the elephants. :D I think the crocodile looks most natural.

    Wow. They’re amazing.
    I wonder if they’re made like regular at home Lego things or if they’re an industrial grade Lego made just for the parks?
