After years of imitation, Vegas is about to be imitated: Legoland California will debut its Lego Las Vegas in spring 2007. What does it mean for reality when a city built out of interpretations of Paris, Venice, and New York gets its own imitation? My guess is that there will be far fewer showgirls and a lot less alcohol, though Legos have gotten much more advanced since I last played with them.
Legoland’s version of Vegas will include the erupting volcano in front of the Mirage and the pirate ships at Treasure Island. And, it’s likely to be more family friendly than the real Sin City.
