LEGOLAND® Florida Resort Unveils New Life-Size
Ford F-150® Lightning™ Truck in Theme Park
New Build is the First and Largest All-Brick Electric Vehicle Model Currently
on Display at any LEGOLAND® Park in North America
Special delivery! LEGOLAND® Florida Resort just unveiled the newest vehicle in its LEGO® brick build fleet – the Ford F-150® Lightning™, now on display in the Theme Park in front of the Ford® Driving School.
A team of 15 Master Model Builders started building the truck in mid-July at The LEGO Group’s U.S. headquarters in Enfield, Conn. The team spent more than 1,600 hours assembling the design, which includes 320,740 LEGO® bricks. The new 3,730-pound build measures in at more than 19 feet long and nearly 7 feet wide, making this the largest (and first!) electric vehicle model currently on display at any LEGOLAND® Park in North America.
LEGOLAND Florida Resort partnered with long-time sponsor Southern Ford Dealers to build the one-of-a-kind, life-size model in celebration of Ford’s all-electric truck launch earlier this year. This 1:1 replica is modeled after the Ford F-150® Lightning™ LARIAT featuring a four-door, crew cab design, complete with a full-size truck bed, runner boards and working headlights and taillights.
This brick Ford F-150® Lightning™ is exclusive to LEGOLAND Florida Resort and will be on permanent display outside the Ford® Driving School. At Ford® Driving School and Jr. Ford® Driving School, little brick fans conquer the rules of the road while pretending to be policemen, firewomen, taxi drivers or any driver they choose in LEGO® City and earn their own personalized LEGOLAND Driver’s License. The Ford® Mustang build, known as the Brick Pony, will be relocated to a nearby courtyard for guests to visit.
The best way for guests to see this new truck build, experience the Ford® Driving School and all the awesome fun of LEGOLAND is to purchase an Annual Pass. Earlier this week, LEGOLAND Florida Resort introduced its own lineup of all-new Annual Passes, starting at less than $13/month after a small down payment.
