The Star Wars Miniland within Legoland California is to be closed on 6th January 2020, with an as yet undisclosed replacement to take its place.
“We’re always creating new adventures for our guests and excited to bring new experiences in the upcoming years. We haven’t announced yet what will take the place of LEGO Star Wars Miniland but know it’s been a popular area which is why we wanted to give our guests a heads up to come visit before it’s gone,” a park spokesperson said.
Kids and adults have visited Legoland’s “Star Wars” Miniland for almost a decade now. More than 1.5 million Lego bricks make up seven scenes from the franchise’s first six films, including displays of the Millennium Falcon on Tatooine, a battle on the frozen planet Hoth, and an imposing Death Star surrounded by X-Wings and TIE Fighters.
The area’s last major addition came in 2017 with the opening of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” in 2017. A 16-foot-long Star Destroyer Finalizer made of more than 350,000 Lego bricks was installed as the Miniland’s longest Lego model ever created.
The park did not say what would happen to the gigantic models displayed throughout the land or what prompted the decision to close the area.
