CARLSBAD (CBS) - The Legoland Californian Resort kicks off the Fourth of July weekend with the unveiling of a new Lego model.

Therefore, Legoland created the One World Trade Center to be the country's tallest Lego model standing at 26 feet high and consisting of 250,000 Legos. Eight master model builders spent 1,200 hours to construct the Lego building.
Thursday's unveiling also honors Independence Day and the park's annual Red, White and BOOM!
