The new land marks the single biggest investment at the park since its gates opened 25 years ago and Legoland promises it will allow ‘children’s imaginations and creativity to run wild’.
A teaser video for the new attraction, shared on social media this morning, shows a mythical portal to another world opening for the first time at the theme park.
In a hint to the creatures that families may find in this ‘parallel universe’, huge footprints shake the resort, a winged shadow flies overhead and the 30-second film ends with an ice storm engulfing Legoland Windsor’s iconic entrance.
The resort said: ‘Working in partnership with Kids Industries, the Legoland Windsor team behind the new land 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.’
The land is currently under construction and is located between Heartlake City and the Resort’s Lego-themed hotels.
Thomas Jellum, divisional director at the Legoland Windsor Resort, said: ‘What better way to celebrate our 25th birthday than by unveiling a unique experience like nothing else we have launched at the resort since we opened.
‘At the heart of Lego Mythica: World of Mythical Creatures will be epic rides, including a UK first, and breathtaking mythical creatures designed to capture children’s imaginations and inspire them to build and play.

‘Our new land has been two years in the making and co-created with families to make sure it delivers what children and their parents want from a theme park in 2021.
‘We can’t wait to share more details soon.’
Legoland Windsor is one of eight Legoland parks across the world.
The others can be found in the Danish town of Billund, California, Florida, Germany, Dubai, Malaysia and Japan.
