The winning landmark was the world famous CN Tower!
TORONTO……The 16-foot, CN Tower replica is built entirely of LEGO® bricks, and was unveiled at CN Tower as the winner of LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre’s MINILAND® Vote.
The CN Tower, the top vote getter in Canada’s first MINILAND contest, will remain on display in the CN Tower Gift Shop to the viewing public until January 28th, 2013, before moving to the MINILAND® attraction at LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre Toronto – to open in Spring, 2013.
"We are very excited to have the CN Tower model in our MINILAND" said Rene Gurtner, General Manager of LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Toronto. "The CN Tower is one of the most famous landmarks in Canada - and possibly the world. To have a replica of this famous Canadian structure in the first Canadian MINILAND is very fitting."
The CN Tower, arguably the most visible landmark in Toronto’s skyline, is now the official winner of LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre Toronto’s MINILAND® contest, which saw a field of 20 landmarks, narrowed to the top ten. Each of these landmarks will be immortalized in LEGO® bricks and featured in the MINILAND® portion of LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre when it opens in Spring, 2013.
The replica took more than three months to build and features LED lights – just like the real CN Tower.
