Legoland Windsor unveils first creature for new Mythica Land


he Legoland Windsor Resort has revealed the first mystifying mythical creature, made from 109,522 Lego bricks, which is set to feature in its new multi-million-pound land – LEGO MYTHICA: World of Mythical Creatures. In a new time-lapse video, viewers get an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the Chimera creature coming to life. Inspired by Greek mythology, the Chimera features four different heads – a shark, snake, eagle and lion – and weighs a whopping 334kg and took 12 talented Model Makers 653 hours to build.

The Chimera is the first of 13 new giant Lego mythical models being created in Lego’s master workshop and gives a glimpse into what guests can expect when they enter the parallel universe of LEGO MYTHICA, due to open this season. Marianne McGoldrick, marketing director at the LegolandWindsor Resort, said: “It’s been an amazing experience to watch the team build such a diverse set of large-scale Lego models which have

been inspired by the imaginations of children. Each mythical character is so unique and like nothing else we’ve ever featured at Legoland Windsor before. “It takes our model makers many hours to intricately turn thousands of different sized and coloured LEGO bricks into these incredible models and we can’t wait for families to meet the Chimera and learn more about its role in the story of LEGO MYTHICA when the land opens later this year.” Expected to open in spring 2021, LEGO MYTHICA: World of Mythical Creatures marks the Resort’s single biggest investment since the gates opened 25 years ago and will feature thrilling new attractions and experiences, including a never- before-seen UK ride.

Working in partnership with Kids Industries, the Legoland Windsor team behind the new land spent a year discussing and testing ideas and concepts with 7 to 11-year-olds and their parents, who influenced everything from the final ride experiences, to names and characters.

SUZOHAPP announces separation of cash handling business

Suzohapp has announced the separation of its gaming and amusement business from its cash handling business, effective immediately. The new cash handling business will be called PayComplete. Suzohapp will

focus solely on its core gaming, amusement, and sports betting business. “As our offerings grew in number and complexity, it became apparent that we could operate more efficiently and serve our customers more effectively by separating into two independent entities,” said Sim Bielak, Global President of Suzohapp. “The increased focus we can now bring to our Gaming & Amusement business will bring us closer to the customer as we align our offerings more directly with their needs.”

With its 60-year history of serving the gaming and amusement industry, Suzohapp is returning to its roots. This renewed focus on its core business will bring value to both the business and its customers.
