LEGO® Travel Adventure Asks “What Will You Build?”
Columbus, OH – There are many different ways to travel where you need to go and in the LEGO Travel Adventure exhibit, visitors are invited to create vehicles capable of flying, driving, and floating – or all three! To go on a travel adventure to exotic locations, children are asked to think creatively, plan, and build vehicles to move through all kinds of terrain – mountains, oceans, jungles, deserts, and more. Dioramas featuring Florida, Hawaii, Paris, and San Francisco will help serve as inspiration for creating vehicles with wheels, wings, masts, and more. LEGO Travel Adventure features creations by LEGO Master Builders including recreations of the driving of the Gold Spike in the Transcontinental Railroad, the building of the first Model T, the Wright Brothers flight at Kitty Hawk, and an ocean liner. Children can also have their photo taken behind the wheel of a kid-size racecar created entirely out of LEGO® DUPLO® bricks.Also included in the exhibit is a diorama featuring the Travel Adventure Vehicle (T.A.V.), a hybrid LEGO brick vehicle created specifically for the new exhibit by LEGO Master Builder Stephen Gerling. In keeping with the theme of the exhibit to create vehicles capable of taking children and families anywhere their imagination can go, the T.A.V. is equipped with all of the right vehicle parts to travel across land, underwater, and in the air. The diorama includes several versions of the vehicle traveling across many terrains including over roads, up a mountain, underwater and taking off for a ride through the sky! In addition to the diorama, a full-size version of the T.A.V. is also available for families to go on an adventure together inside.

Age-appropriate build tables featuring LEGO systems bricks and LEGO DUPLO bricks are available in the exhibit for children to create their own vehicles. Visitors are also invited to take photos of their exhibit creations to share in social media using #LEGOatCOSI.
