Displayed at the LEGO Technic McLaren Formula 1 Pop-Up, the giant build is truly a one-of-a-kind piece of engineering excellence created using 288,315 LEGO bricks that took 1,893 hours to assemble, and measures 5.7 metres in length and 2.4 metres in width!
There will also be 3 interactive activities at the pop-up to test your (and your child's) speed and memory! From challenging the fastest timing to complete a half-assembled 42141 LEGO Technic McLaren Formula 1 Race Car set to a memory game where you will need to remember as many functions of the many buttons on the steering wheel - there will be prizes to be won too! Families can also get a complimentary photo printout with the giant build at the photo-booth too!
