7 Detailed Replicas Of Mini Cities Made Entirely Out Of Lego Blocks





Family theme park Legoland recreated seven mini-cities in what could be the most famous attraction in their California Resort yet – the Miniland USA. The creations, loyal to its place of reference up to the last detail, used more than 10 million Lego bricks all in all to create genuine replicas. It has brought Lego, the toy-building bricks designed for imaginative play, to a whole new level. Miniland USA not only attracts tourists, but it also has re-inspired kids and grown-ups alike to explore their creativity using Lego bricks.

Built at a 1:20 scale, it features more than 8,000 Minilanders roaming the streets of Miniland. It is a walk-through park where you can take a stroll and explore the avenues as if you’re touring the cities they represent, only smaller. To make it more realistic, you can even hear real-life sound effects as you go around. Here are the 7 mini cities featured in Legoland California:

The Big Apple is made up of more than 2 million Lego bricks. The sights include the One World Trade which stands at 26 feet and is considered the tallest Lego model in the US. And of course, another highlight is the iconic Statue of Liberty.

The incredible detail is nothing short of impressive. Look at the streets, and you will see the Minilanders bustling in daily life, some are skating, practising Tai-Chi, riding carriages, sunbathing, sailing boats and some like you, are just out for a stroll.

2. San Francisco

Miniland USA began its exquisite display since the park opened in 1999. Some of the models have stood there for as long as 20 years.

What makes Miniland remarkable is its realistic portrayal of the places it represents. While it has significant, extremely detailed building structures, there are also little sights along the streets that have references to daily life.

It’s reality in minuscule pieces.
