The autumn school holidays are coming up here in the Netherlands (herfstvakantie) and we’re getting ready for one of our must-do events of the year: LEGO World in Utrecht.
For an entire week, the conference venue the Jaarbeurs (next to Utrecht Central Station) is filled with LEGO. To give you an idea of the scale, here are some LEGO World facts:
- To create LEGO World, 23 transport trailers bring more than 14 tons of LEGO bricks to Utrecht;
- More than 5,000 LEGO creations are made every day at LEGO World;
- Over 100 people are needed to break up all these creations at the end of every day, and prepare for the following day’s visitors.
If you have LEGO fans in your house, you have to do this. Last year, we stood under a LEGO shower, played in swimming pool sized tubs of LEGO and trained as Nexo Knights. Going for the first time? See our review of last year’s event for useful tips.
