Legoland Florida Opens Doors

17 Oct

Hey everyone,

Legoland Florida got off to a busy start on Saturday with thousands of visitors lining up near the park’s entrance before dawn for the 10 a.m. opening ceremony.

Families began arriving at 5:30 a.m. and the crowd grew as the countdown continued. At 9:58 a.m., General Manager Adrian Jones flipped the ceremonial switch to “power up” the park.

About 50 minutes from both Orlando and Tampa, the park includes more than 50 million bricks. Its 50 rides, shows and attractions put kids in the center of the action by giving them the opportunity to drive, fly, build and climb their way through 150 acres of fun.

Like other Legoland Parks, the Florida destination is divided into 10 zones. Four junior coasters have been built to offer many young theme park-goers their first thrill experience, including Coastersaurus, a wooden roller coaster that anchors Land of Adventure, and Lego Technic Test Track coaster which joins the splash-tastic Aquazone Wave Racers in the Lego Technic Zone.

Other zones include Lego Kingdoms, which features knights, princesses and dragons – as well as the newest “castle” in Central Florida – and the interactive Lego City where kids freely drive cars and boats by themselves. Miniland USA is the heart of Legoland and features landmarks from Washington D.C., New York City, Las Vegas, and major points of interest across Florida including Kennedy Space Center and the Daytona Motor Speedway, all built at 1:20 scale.

Legoland tickets cost $75 for adults and $65 for children 3-12, $10 less than other major Central Florida attractions. Annual passes may be purchased for $129 for adults and $99 for children and seniors over 60.

    We saw some people walking around with some very large LEGOLAND bags on our last trip to Orlando a couple of weeks ago. Very excited to see what people think!
