What to expect from the Lego Festival 2020 in Dubai
There will be seven Lego-themed zones at the festival, located across the mall and a never before seen Lego scene.
In this zone, you can play in the ice fishing holes of the ice caps filled with blue-colored Lego bricks but beware of the swimming Polar bear! You could also explore the Penguin Igloo and build your very own Lego Snowman and even join in to build a huge fire engine. The live build instructed by their builders will support you to create a life-sized fire engine made of hundreds of thousands of Lego bricks.
This is your chance to meet Andrea, Emma, Mia, Olivia and Stephanie. You can even visit their home in Heartlake City. These five exploring, creative, funny and quirky characters all bring heart to every solution.
This zone caters to the youngest of visitors and lets them unleash their unlimited potential. Learn, fun and play, they can build pits, tables and a Duplo train all set in a park themed space. It can also be treated as a family bonding session with the Duplo animal models.
In this zone, you can test your ability to tame the dragons and become a master. Take on the Ninjago challenges, or perfect your building skills in the brick arena. The Lego Ninjago theme comes to life in the rustic backdrop of gates, lanterns, posts and crates. Lego Ninjago is a rich story universe that inspires both engaging roleplay and creative building. A team of young ninjas confronts the forces of evil in this popular Lego theme designed for kids who love adventure. Spectators will be able to watch the Ninja’s battle against the powerful sorceress, Aspheera. This show is a real treat for the Lego Ninjago lovers as they watch their heroes come to life in a 3D show complete with lights and lasers. Throughout the festival, the Imagine Show will take place hourly from 6pm, daily.
This is both a fun zone as well as one for the experienced/older builders. Children here will get to build, race and jump a car while taking a picture in the podium with the Lego Champion’s Cup. You can also test your skills and build a tower that will go in the ever-growing skyline. If you are more of an experienced builder, it is a zone that allows you to create perfectly engineered buildings or test your mechanical skills by creating different structures using Lego Technic bricks.
LEGO Shadow Runner
This is a unique experience that allows participants to race against a life-size Lego Minifigure in Augmented Reality. The race is displayed live on a large screen and other smaller screens. It captures a time for a leaderboard, replays instantly and posts to a social stream or a private download link is emailed direct to the racer! So if you have what it takes to beat the Lego Minifigure, here’s your zone!
A jungle full of Lego animals from a life-size elephant to a gorilla, a snake and meerkats, this is a great exhibition zone that will make an amazing opportunity for photos.
The entry fee for this Lego Festival in Dubai is AED30 and the entry RFIDs are available at the customer service desk. The Imagine Show is free to watch.
