Merlin Entertainments has revealed the first images of the new multi-million-pound Lego Mythica: World of Mythical Creatures zone at its Legoland Windsor theme park.

Opening to the public on 29 May, the new family area is currently under construction and is located between Heartlake City and the resort’s Lego-themed hotels.

It will be home to the UK’s first ever flying theatre ride – called Flight of The Sky Lion – which stands at more than 25 metres tall.

The 4D experience will include wind, mist and smell effects, which have been synchronised with the animated film to fully immerse families in the Lego Mythica world.

Flight of The Sky Lion will be accompanied by an array of other attractions and rides, such as the Fire and Ice Freefall, a drop ride standing at 13 metres tall; and Hydra’s Challenge, a water ride protected by one of Lego Mythica’s guardians Duo.

Aspiring explorers will need to prepare to get wet on Hydra’s Challenge as they steer their own vessel on this thrilling water attraction.

Other attractions include Creature Creation, where guests can build their very own creatures; an adventure play area called Lava Dragon Play; a character meet and greet experience called Creature Encounter and The Hungry Troll restaurant.

Helen Bull, divisional director at Legoland Windsor Resort said: “We’re thrilled to give our guests a first look at Lego Mythica and showcase some of the attractions, experiences and models that will be unveiled when we open in May.

“We worked in partnership with Kids Industries and spent a year discussing and testing ideas and concepts with seven to 11-year olds and their parents who influenced everything from the final ride experiences, names and characters."
