its a merlin entertainments deal- get entry to a multitude of merlin entertainment attractions via vouchers in the sun newspapers...

 the manchester  attraction is the legoland discovery centre in the trafford centre- ( an indoor legoland )- built into the trafford shopping centre- somewhere for dad and the kids to go whilst SWMBO is doing retail therapy.... ( you need between 2 and 4 hours to enjoy this place- and its totally unaffected by the weather)

the legoland in windsor is outdoors set in 150 acres- you need all day to get round,  - more rides and lots of different attractions  and its very much weather dependent !!!

took 32 modelmakers in the UK and about 48 in denmark 3.5 years to  build windsor park as it was at the time of opening in march 1996.....

 much bigger now of course....ithere is a team of 24 at windsor now to build and maintain the exhibits.....

the legoland discovery centre in manchester was my 'baby' - we started in early part of 2009 designing it, we  brits ( 8 of us modelmakers and 4 animation engineers) and some danes built it - and it opened in march 2010

 we are building another now to go into dallas- its a 9 month project, the idea is we do 2 of these a year from now on going forward........

yes and no.....

 plum productions were tasked by the BBC to investigate and go onto actually produce tyhis TV programme,

they came to us to ask if it could be done..... and for some input.

we came up with a plan, a design and an estimation of the numbers of bricks required.....

 plum did not believe us and said they would do  'their own design' with 30% less bricks...... they had an expert on staff now ( a chap i had trained 8 years previously )

 and they started out on their own design - they kicked us into touch.... <:(

 approximately 20 % the way through they started to add timber stud frames to support the house... they also  suddenly worked out they were short of bricks as thier calculations were wrong....

they came to us to see if we could provide a further  'couple of million bricks'  - we again helped them out.....( they now had the similar number of bricks as we had estimated originally....  O0)

we were then asked if we would display the finished article at windsor once filming was complete.......i started the ball rolling at this end and got the relevant planning forms which asked for dimensions and detail of the structure....plum productions could not give me finished dimensions for the planning document.... %%

 needless to say the whole thing went sour.... they suggested the building would be chain sawed up into panels for us to reconstruct once at windsor, but as you know once the stud frame is cut the strength is gone, plus we would need to take the lego off the frame to rejoin the studs to give it strength and allow it to be rebuilt, the strcuture was not suitable to let thousands of kids to goupstairs and view the structure so the house came to windsor in a shpiing container ( full of boxes of bricks)

 every year we get the bricks out and do a public building event at windsor so the house lives on... ( its just a car and a helicopter and a tower, and a fish, and a cat and...... and a .... now   :} )
