“I wish to go to Legoland with my best friend, Branden!”
6-year-old Caelen was diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy (type 1), a genetic disease that affects the nervous system resulting in lack of control of muscles. His wish was to visit Legoland with his best friend, Branden, who shares the same medical condition.
Caelen made his own Lego invite for Branden, which was then sent to Branden’s home in Malaysia along with a Legoland map. Once Branden received the personalised handmade invitation, they both got really excited about the trip. The pair of best friends agreed that Ninjago World is their ‘must-go’ attraction, and began counting down to the day they’ll meet at Legoland.
A week leading up to the wish day, Caelen also had the opportunity to build a skyscraper ‘that reaches the sky’ with lego bricks.
Brick designer, Jeffrey, from Artisan Bricks patiently guided Caelen and family along, coaching them on how to piece lego bricks together properly and sketching ideas before building them. With everyone’s participation, a personalised skyscraper over 1 metre tall was completed!
Caelen’s highlight for his wish day was the VIP Expedition Tour, where they enjoyed priority access to rides and attractions, while spending time building Legos at an exclusive workshop.
