Royal look-alikes visit Legoland Windsor to visit the recently opened Mythica attraction


Dressed in her summer best, Her Majesty the Queen, swapped the Highlands of Scotland for a summer holiday trip with a difference when she was joined by fellow look-a-likes Prince Charles, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, who were all invited to test out the Resort’s majestical new ride, the Flight of the Sky Lion.

Standing at a whopping 25 metres tall, the Flight of the Sky Lion ride is at the very heart of the multi-million-pounds new land LEGO® MYTHICA: World of Mythical Creatures which has been wowing thrill seekers and theme park fans since it first opened at the end of May.

The Royal Family’s reactions were caught on camera as they were strapped on board the flying theatre ride in one of its gondolas and transported to the stunning world of LEGO MYTHICA under the wing of The Sky Lion, Maximus, in which they felt mist as they swooped over the ocean; wind as they dived down to the depths of the forest and even the smells of a baby LEGO lava dragon’s burp!

The excitement was clearly too much for Prince George and Princess Charlotte whose jaw-dropping facial expressions showcased the thrill of this awe-inspiring ride and 4k film which are perfectly synchronised with immersive 4D effects.

The third in line to the throne was so excited, onlookers heard the Prince George look-a-like shout it was ‘awesome’ and ‘it felt like I was flying.’

Helen Bull, Divisional Director at LEGOLAND Windsor Resort, added: “We were so excited to welcome our most famous Windsor neighbour and her family to the incredible world of LEGO MYTHICA for a majestical summer day out.

“LEGO MYTHICA is an alternative universe that is powered by imaginations and there’s no doubt our guests were able to escape their royal duties and enjoy a thrilling adventure on board the Flight of the Sky Lion in this one-of-a-kind, UK first ride.”

Created by kids for kids, LEGO MYTHICA is the Resort’s biggest investment since it first opened its gates 25 years ago.

As well as the UK’s first flying theatre ride, LEGO MYTHICA also features the Fire and Ice Freefall drop tower ride, an exhilarating water ride called Hydra’s Challenge and thirteen new mythical creature models that took a team of Model Makers nearly a year to build and over 1.76 million LEGO bricks to create.
