The Italian supercar icon takes on a LEGO look.
While interest in anything automotive grows at a young age, the goal of a brand like LEGO is to provide a creative building experience that incorporates automotive inspiration. Being one of the most successful sections in the huge collection of buildable sets, LEGO is proud to launch the Ferrari Build and Race experience in Legoland, California. In the new attraction, guests can virtually change their own engine, tires, power and aerodynamics. Once the fine-tuning is complete, the cars are digitally scanned, where they appear in a virtual race on Ferrari’s iconic Fiorano circuit in Maranello. In addition to all the interactive attractions, the highlight of the Ferrari build and race is a full-size LEGO Ferrari F40 located in the center of the three-event zone.
