Theme parks are important to Orlando. Parks bring tourists, and tourists bring money — in 2009, 46,583,000 visitors to the tri-county area brought in $27.6 billion, according to Visit Orlando.
So when a new theme park opens in the area, it’s a big deal. In honor of the opening of Legoland Florida, the Orlando Sentinel recreated its nameplate completely out of the tiny plastic bricks.
The newspaper’s website tells the story of how the graphics and multimedia staffs built it. There’s even a time-lapse video of the construction. Clearly the project took quite a bit of patience and time.
Kudos, guys. I think the final outcome was worth it.
