STAR WARSTM MINILAND MODEL DISPLAY OPENS JUNE 8, FOR A LIMITED TIME ONLY!
Be the first to experience LEGOLAND® Discovery Center Dallas/Fort Worth’s LEGO®
Star Wars™ Episode IV MINILAND Model Display set to open June 8.
Young Padawans and their families are invited to the Grand Opening of LEGOLAND Discovery Center Dallas/Fort Worth’s first-ever LEGO®
Star Wars MINILAND – a large-scale, interactive LEGO model display, chronicling the adventures of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. Join the Rebel Alliance as they plot to destroy the Galactic Empire’s powerful Death Star.
Embark on a journey through the world of the classic film and experience the epic duel between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader and watch in awe as the Millennium Falcon rises from the deserts of Tattooine. Explore the bustling city of Mos Eisley and take in the busy cantina where the band plays its familiar tune and dangerous characters lurk in dark corners. View down streets and over dunes to see recognizable characters and scenes before heading off to the mighty Death Star that rises ominously above the dusty planet. When there, peer into its fortress like depths and see the adventures unfold before taking on the interactive game to destroy this planet base or bring down the attacking X-Wings. Will you join the Rebel Alliance or will you turn to the dark side?
