Heroes wanted! – In keeping with the LEGOLAND® Deutschland motto, this year’s event calendar is once again dedicated to real heroes. From May to November, the events at the park allow everyone to slip into a dream role and become a pilot, professional footballer or spook. Furthermore, two exciting new shows await LEGOLAND fans of all ages in the 2008 season: in the LEGO® Arena, visitors can look forward to interactive experiments in “INCREDIBLE – The bumper show packed full of amazing surprises”. In “Sam Sinister and the secret of the magic light” in the Puppet Theatre, the new LEGOLAND hero Sam Sinister takes the audience on a magical journey to ancient Egypt.

31st May: Bayern 3 - Family Day

Music fans wanted! – Everyone knows what they sound like, but what faces go with the voices of the popular Bayern 3 - presenters? All visitors can find out the answer at the Bayern 3 - Family Day at LEGOLAND on 31st May. There will be a fun-packed programme with the team from Bayern 3 at the Family Day: fantastic live shows on the stages, with a whole host of interactive games and workshops to take part in. The Bayern 3 - children’s reporters will be roaming the park all day long, providing visitors with exciting back-stage reports.

However, the Bayern 3 - Family Day would not be complete without doing something for a good cause. On 31st May, LEGOLAND will be donating 1 euro to the hospital clowns from Clown Projekt e.V. for every ticket sold. These clowns regularly visit the children’s wards of hospitals to give the young patients something to laugh about. They will of course be present at the park for the Bayern 3 - Family Day, providing fun and entertainment.
