Ford Explorer Made Entirely of LEGO® Bricks For the LEGOLAND Florida Theme Park

 

Earlier this month a super unique Ford Explorer rolled off the line at an Assembly Plant in Chicago. This was a unique vehicle in that it was assembled in 2,500 hours and made entirely of LEGOs. In total it was made of 380,000 LEGOs to be exact.

The bright red LEGOLAND Florida edition Explorer, created by 22 designers, weighs 2,654 pounds and is supported by a 768-pound interior aluminum base.

This marks the start of an alliance between Ford and LEGOLAND® Florida theme park. After its debut at the Chicago Plant, which produces the Explorer, the vehicle will be loaded onto a trailer with transparent sides so motorists can see the LEGO Explorer as it makes its way to the new 150-acre LEGOLAND Florida theme park just outside Orlando.

“Ford is excited to support the alliance between LEGOLAND Florida and the Southeast Ford dealers. The LEGOLAND Florida Explorer and the Ford Driving School attraction are great opportunities to showcase our products and safety messages to families and visitors in a unique way,” said Tracy Magee, Ford Experiential Marketing manager.

Ford Driving School at LEGOLAND Florida allows children to experience the fun and responsibility of driving in their own vehicles in a neighborhood setting (at a maximum speed of 3 mph). There will be a Ford Junior Driving School for children ages 3 to 5 years old and a Ford Driving School for those ages 6 to 12.

The New LEGOLAND Florida them park will be the second in the United States and the fifth largest LEGOLAND Park in the world, made of up more than 50 million LEGO bricks and covering 150 acres. I am soooo excited to take Zoe to experience all that this Park will have to offer!!!! I can’t wait until the October 15th Grand Opening!!!!
