Make-A-Wish kid claims victory against NASCAR great Casey Mears in MINILAND 400

Earlier today, 10-year-old Layla Popoff of Orlando, Fla., zoomed to victory in the MINILAND 400 against veteran NASCAR driver Casey Mears, during a special event #BuiltForKids to celebrate the giant new Daytona International Speedway model at LEGOLAND® Florida Resort.

Driving the No. 00 car in honor of the Coke Zero 400 Powered By Coca-Cola, which returns to the “World Center of Racing” on July 2, Layla was a tough competitor for Casey, who drove a kid-sized version of his No. 13 GEICO car for Germain Racing.

MINILAND 400After taking off from between LEGO® models of the Statue of Liberty and the U.S. Capitol in MINILAND USA, Layla and Casey quickly reached a top speed of nearly four miles per hour in the electric vehicles borrowed from our popular Driving School attraction.

MINILAND 400

Casey’s dreams of a MINILAND 400 victory came to abrupt end when he crashed into a wall of giant LEGO bricks near the finish line.

Neck-and-neck they zoomed past the New York City skyline, remaining close as they barreled down the Las Vegas Strip.  With the finish line in sight at the new Daytona display, Casey suddenly plowed into a pile of giant LEGO bricks near Kennedy Space Center while Layla raced ahead to claim victory.  Her prize? A giant LEGO trophy accepted with a triumphant smile. Take a look:

Layla was selected for the one-of-a-kind race with the assistance of Merlin’s Magic Wand, a global charity that has helped nearly 300,000 children and their families enjoy a magical day out at more than 100 attractions operated around the world by Merlin Entertainments, parent company of LEGOLAND. Earlier this year, Layla’s dream of a huge backyard playhouse was fulfilled by Make-A-Wish Central and Northern Florida.

MINILAND 400Afterward, the friendly competitors headed to the theme park’s new Imagination Zone.  Let me tell you, this place is what your LEGO dreams are made of.  It’s filled with hands-on LEGO building activities where kids can put their imaginations into overdrive.

Imagination Zone

After the MINILAND 400 race, Casey and Layla headed to the new Wheels Zone inside Imagination Zone, where they built and tested LEGO race cars.

Since Casey is a racing expert (even if he did get beat by a 10-year-old) he gave several young fans great tips for building creative LEGO vehicles to race down timed ramps in the new Wheels Zone. I wonder who had more fun, Casey or the kids?

MINILAND 400

Layla helped Casey and Chip Wile, president of Daytona International Speedway, place Minilander likenesses of the two men into the giant new LEGO model of the “World Center of Racing.”

2016.06.20_LEGOLANDFLORIDA_DIS_0064Casey’s fans can watch him in the Coke Zero 400 at the real Daytona International Speedway on Saturday, July 2. Good luck, Casey!

Inside the mind of Risky Business

Patton Oswalt

Actor, writer and comedian Patton Oswalt voices Risky Business, brother of movie villain President Business.

Late last week, LEGOLAND® California Resort welcomed celebrities and VIP guests to its own gala premiere of “The LEGO® Movie™ 4D A New Adventure.” Stars including John Michael Higgins, Ali Landry, Emmy Perry and pro skateboarder Andy MacDonald strolled the red carpet before entering the LEGO Show Place Theater to celebrate the return of Emmet, Wyldstyle, MetalBeard, Benny and Unikitty.

Joining the festivities was actor, writer and comedian Patton Oswalt, who voices the scheming Risky Business, a new character created exclusively for the new attraction.

When asked how it felt to join a “family” of well-known characters from “The LEGO Movie,” he responded, “It’s beyond flattering. It’s a clever, creative way of looking at, of all things, LEGO, and I was touched to be a part of it.”

Since Risky Business is a character that fans of “The LEGO Movie” haven’t seen before, he said he approached the acting challenge of hiding Risky’s true intentions “with the wiles of a LEGO coyote.”
