Parts of Las Vegas have always seemed so outrageous, you sometimes feel you’re in a theme park. Excalibur, for example, with its giant King Arthur’s castle, sandwiched between a giant black pyramid and New York New York with a rollercoaster.

Now, though, that theme-park feeling has been brought vividly to life, courtesy of Lego. At their Californian LegoLand themepark, they’ve built a gigantic replica of the entire Vegas strip out of 2 million Lego bricks. It took their designers over 3 years to make, and features a 20 foot tall replica of The Stratosphere, working rollercoasters, and Lego showgirls.

Also amongst the amazing features of MiniLand Las vegas, as it’s called, is a working monorail and miniature wedding chapel.

“Miniland is the heart of LEGOLAND California where kids and their families can see all that can be created with LEGO elements. As a visually stunning United States landmark, Las Vegas is a shining example of creativity and imagination,” said President and General Manager John Jakobsen. “Las Vegas is recognizable around the world and we are excited to give our family visitors the chance to experience the city in a kid-friendly environment.”
