If you and your family had an infinite supply of LEGO bricks, what would you build?
That’s the theme of a new contest being co-sponsored by Airbnb and LEGO. One lucky winning family will be flown to Denmark and get to spent a one-night stay in the new LEGO House in the city of Billund, which is where LEGOs were invented in the 1930s.
The winner will stay at the house from November 24 to November 25. As per the LEGO contest page of airb&b’s website:
Your journey will start when Jamie, one of the finest master builders in the world, welcomes you into the LEGO House and sparks your imagination with top-secret LEGO tips and tricks. Then he’ll join you for lunch served by two friendly robot waiters—but first you’ll have to build your meal order out of bricks.
Next, the doors will close to the public and Jamie will lead you on a private expedition. You’ll stand at the foot of the Tree of Creativity, built by hand from over 6 million bricks, and then explore the Masterpiece Gallery, showcasing LEGO creations from fans all over the world. From there, you’ll head to the Experience Zones, where you can direct your own LEGO movie, engineer robotic cars and send them flying over jumps, design cities, and much more.
Since all this creativity will no doubt bring up memories of your favorite childhood LEGO creations, the next stop is the basement, where you can trace the timeline of LEGO history and rediscover the most iconic sets ever produced.
Finally, you’ll reach your destination: a bedroom floating in a pool of bricks underneath a 6-meter-tall LEGO waterfall. Everything around you is made out of LEGO bricks: armchairs, lamps, the alarm clock, the TV, your favorite story book, and even the cat. But before you drift off into your most colorful dreams ever, there’s building to do. After all, it was your winning idea that brought you here. Drawing on Jamie’s expertise, you’ll use the endless supply of bricks to make your vision a reality.
The next morning, after breakfast and before the doors reopen to the public, there’s one final surprise. We won’t reveal it here, but let’s just say that in some small way, your family will leave your footprint in LEGO House long after you leave, just like the memories of your time here.
The LEGO House took four years to build and opened this past September. It boasts three restaurants, a Lego creation gallery, a Lego store, outdoor terraces and playgrounds, a bedroom beneath a Lego waterfall, a pool of bricks and much more.
“It has been a dream for me for many years to create a place that will give our visitors the ultimate LEGO experience. With LEGO House, we celebrate creativity and the strength of learning through play. When they play, children learn the basic skills that they need, such as creativity, collaboration and problem-solving abilities,” says third-generation LEGO owner, Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen.
Describe your dream creation between November 1, 2017 at 9:00pm Pacific Time (5am GMT) and 11:59pm Pacific Time on November 16, 2017 (17 November, 7:59am GMT), and you could spend the night among an infinite supply of LEGO bricks, and create a version of your entry with a LEGO Master Builder.
Winners will be flown in from around the world.
Guests should be a group of 2-4 people. All children must be at least 4 years old. You must be able to travel to Denmark for spending the night at the LEGO House on November 24 of 2017. Note that the experience involves some moderate physical activity and you may need to already have a visa to enter Denmark.
You must be able to spend the night at LEGO House on November 24, 2017.
