the moment the Lego Town area of Legoland only has the train
station, a shop and an elaborate facade of theming. One of the
buildings is called the Magic Theatre, and there was a time you
could enter the backstage area for a tour.
This led to a relatively modern type of attraction I don't know a
genuine term for. You could say a fun house, but instead of the
traditional floors and obstacles it consisted of
obstacles you could interact with. I'd guess you could call it an
interactive house or a fun museum.
Two exhibits particularly stick out in my mind. One was a fun X-ray
machine at the beginning that you had to power with some pedals.
This turned on a light that revealed your X-ray, actually a model
skeleton made of lego, that peddled in sync with you.
The other one I remember was a room at the end, quite a few people
walked past, that contained a nice light show. I remember other
exhibits with holes you'd reach in to guess the theatre prop inside,
and a box you'd look in and see a Lego model frog change into a
model prince, and
points where you could pose for photos.
For a while it was a mystery why it closed, as it always seemed
popular, and I imagine it was relatively cheap to run. The space is
now occupied by an X-box gaming zone, I'm guessing as the result of
some sort of sponsorship deal. I will definitely miss this old
attraction when visiting the park.
