LEGOLAND Windsor has installed a towering LEGO Christmas tree ready for the holiday season.
A giant LEGO Christmas tree has been installed at LEGOLAND Windsor Resort in time for this year’s festivities. It’s 33 feet tall and is made of regular LEGO bricks and DUPLO bricks. Model Makers spent almost 3,000 hours putting the enormous holiday monument together.
There will be an official light switch-on on November 27, when the park opens with an almost full slate of attractions for Christmas weekends. Visitors will be ready for the holiday, as according to a survey 31% of Brits will put up their Christmas tree earlier than usual.
The LEGO star on top of the tree is comprised of 5,251 LEGO bricks and weighs 80kg.
Blocks reviews 10293 Santa’s Visit in Issue 85 and hears from the designer of the set in Issue 84.

‘We’re really excited for what is set to be one of LEGOLAND Windsor’s biggest Christmas celebrations yet, as our guests and their families plan to make up for lost time and enjoy some magical memory making this winter which they couldn’t do because of restrictions last year,’ says Chief Model Maker Paula Laughton.
‘Nothing marks the start of getting into the festive spirit more than putting up the Christmas tree and our giant tree made entirely out of thousands of LEGO and DUPLO bricks will leave families awe-inspired by its size and intricate details. We can’t wait for the lights switch on ready for when we re-open from November 27.’
LEGOLAND at Christmas runs from 27 November to 3 January. The event promises lights, snow dusted trees and a sprinkling of LEGO magic throughout the theme park. There’ll be the opportunity to meet Santa Claus and enjoy special festive shows among the regular attractions that will be open, including the new MYTHICA rides.
