Somewhere, in an undisclosed location at their secret model shop in Carlsbad, California, Lego designers are assembling a Lego Star Wars Miniland model that will feature characters like Kylo Ren, Rey, BB-8, Finn, and the planet Jakku.

Plans are also afoot for a 16-foot Star Destroyer Finalize, which will become the longest Star Wars-themed Lego model.

Visitors will be able to relive the first half-hour of the film in Lego form, with key scenes from the opening that will portray Kylo Ren's capture of Poe at planet Jakku; Rey's rescue of BB-8, Poe and Finn's escape from the Star Destroyer Finalizer; and the escape from the Starship Graveyard.

For the full effect, the display will also be accompanied by lights, sound effects and animation.

The water park area will also see the addition of Surfer's Bay that will feature a water slide raceway allowing kids to compete against each other down six slides and a new "spray ground" with multiple water jets.

Overnight guests can likewise slumber in Ninja-themed hotel rooms from the Lego Ninjago universe, with characters Cole, Nya, Kai and Lloyd.

The Ninja rooms are part of a larger hotel expansion plan, with a premium 250-room castle-themed hotel slated to open in 2018.

The Star Wars miniland is scheduled to open in March, 2017 in time for spring break, while the water park addition will open in summer.
