Probably one of the biggest tourist attractions in Denmark. Legoland Park in Billund opened on June 7th, 1968.
Over 45 million tiny lego blocks have been used to build the theme park, portraying scenes from all over Denmark and the rest of the world, such as townships from Sweden and Holland, Amalienborg Palace, NASA Space station and a lot of other places and buildings.
There are also plenty of rides in the park both for adults and children alike.
Everything in the park is constructed out of Lego blocks; you’ll walk past cities built in small scale, not to mention castles, airports and even famous people like Hans Christian Andersen, all built in Lego blocks.
You're allowed to bring your own food into the park but there are countless (although a bit expensive) food stands and cafes.
At Legoland you’ll find rides for young and old and even a traffic school for kids and most of the rides are included in the entry price.
Legoland opened a new ride the last Saturday in April 2012, it is the world’s first ride with a drop of 5 meters. The Polar X-plorer has a length of 499 metres and is a real family ride. The ride lasts just under 2 min.
The Polar X-plorer is located in the brand new Polar Land at Legoland Billund where you can also find penguins and just in case you were wondering the penguins are not made from Lego blocks they are real live ones and they have 17 of them.
If you don’t want to queue up too long for the rides, arrive early just when they open and go for all the rides first and then walk around and take a look at the rest of the park after.
At Legoland Billund you will find the largest Lego Shop in the World.
1000 m2 of Lego bricks small or large in all kinds of colours, small Lego people, Lego games, mini tyres and wheels, yes anything Lego you will find here.
