LEGOLAND Discovery Center Michigan Announces Top 10 MINILAND Finalists
LEGOLAND Discovery Center Michigan announced the ten finalists from the recent MINILAND public vote. More than 1100 votes were casts for landmarks in the Detroit area. A new round of voting opened Monday November 2nd, where voters will decide the winner that will be unveiled in a special ceremony held on November 18th. Voting end November 16th. All 10 of the landmarks listed below will be made out of LEGOs, but only one will be crowned the MINILAND winner.
The top ten finalists are (in no order):
GM Renaissance Center
Spirit of Detroit
Belle Isle Park
Uniroyal World’s Largest Tire
Michigan Central Station
The Heidelberg Project
I am happy to see at least one Detroit sports stadium make the list in Comerica Park. I would have also loved to see Joe Louis Arena or Ford Field make the top ten. Perhaps the way the Detroit Lions are playing contributed to the stadium not making the list. Joe Louis Arena is in its later stages as a new arena is being built to house the Detroit Red Wings.
I love seeing Spirit of Detroit, Motown Museum, and Fox Theatre on this list as the sight of all three immediately takes people to thoughts of Detroit.
In the meantime, be sure to vote for one of these 10 landmarks starting Monday. Also be sure to sign up for the LEGOLAND newsletter and follow LEGOLAND Discovery Center Michigan’s Facebook page for more information.
