LEGOLAND Malaysia has transformed into a racetrack-themed site for the Build The Thrills festival, where a LEGO model of the Ferrari 512 M is on showcase. 

The model is a scaled down version of the actual vehicle, but still weighs a whopping 280kg. Comprising 78,496 LEGO bricks, the 3D LEGO Ferrari 512 M model took a total of 644 hours to design, develop and build.

On top of the iconic LEGO model, LEGOLAND has also prepared an exciting line-up of activities for the event, including car-building workshops using LEGO blocks.

In some of these workshops, participants will be able to build their own cars using LEGO blocks, and even enter their works in on-site competitions where they’ll be able to test them out against fellow participants.

There are also live shows and meet-and-greet opportunities with various LEGO mascots, such as Ninja Kai from Ninjago World and Wyldstyle and Emmet from the LEGO movies.

The Build The Thrills festival runs till Jun 26. A guide to the timings of all shows and events can be found here.
