Legoland prank as
boss's car swapped
for a toy
Pieces of the action ... car made from 200,000 Lego bricks is raised on fork-lift truck
THE boss of a Legoland theme park must have been in pieces when staff swapped his car for one made of LEGO.
Peter Ronchetti was stunned to find his real Volvo XC60 had been replaced with a life-sized XC90 made from more than 200,000 of the toy bricks.
The prank was thought up by colleague Tim Petsche, who snuck away Ronchetti's keys and called in a forklift to move in the three-ton model car.
But Ronchetti took the joke in his stride — playing around with the car and pretending to unlock it.
He said: "We have a very fun, creative team here at Legoland California and it really was the perfect prank.
"I can tell you that I won't leave my keys laying around ever again."
Beth Chee, spokeswoman for the park in Carlsbad, California, watched and photographed the prank, saying that Ronchetti thought it was "very funny".
