Whether you love or hate physics, you cannot deny the appeal of Albert Einstein. Who cannot help but love that shock of wild white hair that belies the brilliant mind underneath? Or perhaps his crowning glory is actually a testament to his brilliance. Whichever way you see it, Albert Einstein IS the guy who led the way to physics as we know it today. And what better tribute to the ultimate physics geek than to create a LEGO Einstein head?
That’s exactly what the guys at Legoland Florida did. This amusement facility has only recently opened, and while entertainment may be its focal point, Legoland Florida stays true to the idea of bringing out the creativity in kids of all ages. The giant LEGO Einstein head is positioned strategically at the entrance to the Imagination Zone, which “emphasizes exploring and creation, while showcasing seven of the most visually exciting LEGO models in the world”. Indeed, what better to see before you enter than the bust of Einstein?
Just to give you a better idea of how ginormous this LEGO Einstein head is, take a look at this other photo.
Inside the Imagination Zone, you can see the following rides and attractions:
- Hero Factory – immersive interactive play area based on LEGO’s popular Hero Factory line.
- Build & Test – Build a LEGO car and test it against the competition on the digitally timed track.
- LEGO MINDSTORMS™ – Build and program cutting-edge, computerized LEGO MINDSTORMS™ robots.
- Kid Power Towers – Kids and parents alike hoist themselves up to the top of a tower to get a great view of the entire park and lovely Lake Eloise, and then enjoy a fun “free-fall” to the bottom. (Minimum rider height of 40″, riders less than 48″ must be accompanied by a responsible rider of at least 48″ in height.)
You guys based in the US don’t know how lucky you are!
