    Re: Become a LEGO Master Model Builder!

    How is progress going on the Dubailand Lego (Miniland, etc.) projects? The park is projected to open in 2011 but with the current financial crisis, I'm worried it might get pushed back. Legoland style rides are relatively easy (compared to Disney or Universal) to put together, the biggest issue for Legoland parks are all the intricate Lego models. If the Dubai models are getting built expeditiously then that would be a good sign.

    Unfortunately I do not have any news on the LEGOLAND Dubailand project that I can share. I'll be blunt, I'm not a PR person, so I am not authorized to speak about that project at the moment. We are hiring more Model Builders however, and that is a good sign that our model production is increasing for current and future projects.

    That was my extrapolation as well, hiring more builders should be a good sign for everything Legoland...
