On Star Wars Day, you can ride around Manhattan in the Millennium Falcon.
To celebrate May the Fourth and the anticipated film, Solo: A Star Wars Story, the master builders—and true heroes—at LEGO built the first-ever rideable LEGO Millennium Falcon, and it’s ready to hits the streets of Manhattan. Measuring 9 feet long and 6 feet wide, the rideable LEGO Millennium Falcon pedicab will give fans a chance to hop on board the roving starship in celebration of Star Wars Day and meet Han Solo’s co-pilot and Wookiee BFF Chewbacca, who will be available for selfies.
The Falcon pedicab took a whopping 396 hours to design and build, and is composed of 20,300 LEGO bricks—can you imagine how long that instruction book would be?
Want to take a ride? It’ll be the most glorious 10 minutes of your life. First come-first served rides will pick up and drop off on 6th Avenue between 40th Street and 41st Street between from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on May 4. Rides are on a first-come, first-served basis.
Fans who spot the pedicab or hitch a ride through the galaxy should use #LEGOStarWars and #RoarForChange in their social media posts to drive charitable donations. Roar for Change is a global challenge from Lucasfilm and Star Wars: Force for Change that supports UNICEF’s lifesaving work for children around the world. From May 3 through 25, Star Wars: Force for Chance will donation $1 to UNICEF for each public post, like, or share on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter that includes #RoarForChange.
May the Fourth be with you, especially as you wait in long lines for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
