Legoland’s Water Park Opening

23 May

Legoland Florida’s water park officially opens this Saturday, but there’s a chance to preview it for  free (and set a world record) on Thursday.

Folks wanting to participate must be at Legoland Florida’s main entrance at 9am on Thursday. The first 400 guests will receive free admission  plus a free T-shirt and beach ball. The park, which opened in Winter Haven in October, will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for “most beach balls in the air at one time.” The current mark is 400.

Participants will be allowed to stay in the water park and the rest of Legoland for the entire day. Be aware though…no free admissions will be allowed after 9:30 a.m.

The water park — featuring a lazy river, slides, water playground and such — will be an area within Legoland Florida.

Legoland announce water park opening

4 Feb

Legoland theme park, which opened in Winter Haven last October, has announced the opening date for its water park.  The attraction, which includes remodeled versions of Cypress Gardens’ old Splash Island, will open on 26th May, the Saturday before Memorial Day.

The water park area is incorporated into the main portion of Legoland.  To experience the slides, waves pool, lazy river and other elements, guests must purchase a $12 ticket on top of regular Legoland admission. There is no water-park-only option.

Will be great to hear what you all think of the new attraction once it has opened.

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.
