LEGO DREAMZzz is the imaginative new theme that is story driven but also has a strong creative component. It sees Mateo and Izzie discover the power of dream crafting, as the brother and sister explore the dream world while unlocking their abilities. As well as new sets and streaming episodes, there’s a new 4D movie at LEGOLAND Windsor Resort (and other LEGOLAND locations around the world).
LEGO DREAMZzz: Z-Blob Rescue Rush premiered on July 29 and will be screening several times a day at LEGO Studios 4D. You’ll wear 3D glasses to watch the 15-minute short, which also feature atmospheric effects including water, smoke and ‘snow’. It begins with Mateo falling asleep and entering the dream world, where he and his friends are throwing a huge part. Unfortunately, the Night Hunter turns up to spoil things and starts kidnapping children in giant bubbles. The gang attempt to stop the Night Hunter, but in the process he captures Z-Blob – and Mateo gives chase to rescue his little green friend.

It’s great fun and a well-made piece of animation, with the team behind the streaming series clearly involved. There’s minimal dialogue, presumably to allow the short to be comprehendable internationally, but this works well for a theme park, where children in the audience are likely to vocally react to being splashed with water.
There are two further DREAMZzz additions to LEGOLAND Windsor Resort; Izzie and Mateo are appearing as walkaround characters for families to meet. Fans can then build their own dream creature at a dedicated build station, then place it on the relevant wall inside the DREAMZzz room, which will cause fun light effects to go off. As they leave, participants are given their own Dream Agent ID card.
