​Planet Legoland, debuting Friday, encourages visitors to “unleash their imaginations.” Passholders will be able to get an early preview of the experience on Thursday.

The build experience will feature four different stations where visitors can their world. Each station has as different theme. A station inspired by dragons, princesses and knights features a Lego model of a castle spaceship. There’s also stations inspired by vehicles, animals and creatures, and ninjas.

For younger visitors with smaller hands, there’s a Duplo station.

Once their creations are complete, visitors are encouraged to take a selfie with their model and share it on social media using the hashtag, #RebuildTheWorld. They will also be able to place their model on a giant globe located at the experience.

“During the past 12 months, we’ve all learned how resilient and creative our children are,” Legoland Florida president Rex Jackson said in a statement. “They can play out stories, discover details and feel the sense of accomplishment when they build and play with LEGO. With Planet Legoland, there are no runs, just unlimited creativity, empowering children to make the world a brighter place.”

Legoland said health and safety measures will be in place at Planet Legoland. For one, visitors will maintain six feet of distance when building their models. Face masks, reduced capacity and the use of hand sanitizer are also part of the safety guidelines.

The build stations will be cleaned several times a day, Legoland said. And the Lego bricks at the experience will be sanitized and then “quarantined” for 72 hours.

The new build experience comes as Legoland Florida celebrates its 10th birthday. The celebration includes new shows and experiences at the resort. Earlier this year, Legoland debuted a new pirate-themed stunt show called Brickbeard’s Watersports Stunt Show. It also announced that Miniland USA would get new shade structures to cover the entire area.
