Footage Of The First Legoland Park Opening In 1968

(Video Link)

LEGO was a relatively unknown company in America circa 1968, but in Billund, Denmark they were already constructing the very first Legoland, which attracted over 600,000 visitors in its first year alone.

The power of those little building blocks was put on display in the form of highly detailed scale models- miniature towns, environments and landmarks populated the ten acre theme park and showed that LEGO bricks were more than just toys.

It's interesting to see how the LEGO empire has grown over the last fifty years, and the original Legoland revealed in this vintage footage is a far cry from the chain of LEGO theme parks we know today.

Hey, don't bite my head off, I just go with whatever video my article source has posted. But since you so "kindly" pointed out the official version I have updated it in the post. I hope your life is once again complete Jujube du Vaillant!
