Legoland Billund - Polar X-plorer
Polar Land will be the name of this completely new area at LEGOLAND® Billund. The main attraction will be Polar X-plorer, the first roller coaster in the world to combine a 5-metre-drop with an outing among live penguins.
In addition, the area holds a penguin display, a restaurant and the existing Power Builder, which will be transformed into a flight simulator. The expansion is the largest expansion in the history of LEGOLAND Billund and needs a 75 mill. DKK investment (about 10.1 million EUR)
The new area has been developed by the LEGOLAND Park’s own designer Tom Christiansen: “New young polar researchers can expect quite a ride in the Polar X-plorer. The coaster has a top speed of 65 km/h and leads guests through an ice-waterfall, past impressive polar animals built of LEGO® bricks, into a giant mountain, just to crash through the ice in a 5-metre-drop. Then speed decreases, allowing guests to enjoy the view of live penguins”, Tom Christiansen tells. He is looking very much forward to testing the ride himself.
Only two roller coasters with drops already exist in the world, but this is the first to combine the experience with a zoological element. Polar X-plorer will be the fastest roller coaster in LEGOLAND Billund and will take guests 20 metres up in the air.
