Legoland Florida

Legoland Florida will have it’s grand opening in October 2011! If you’re booking a Florida villa holiday at this time, you might want to fit this new attraction into your trip. Hosting interactive attractions, shows, over 50 rides, restaurants and shopping  – this is expected to be a great family theme park geared for families with children aged 2-12. This will be Legoland’s 5th park in the world – others currently in Denmark, London, California and Germany and at 150 acres of education, adventure and fun it will also be Legoland’s largest park built to date. Interestingly, for some background on how ‘Lego’ came into being, it all started in 1932 by Ole Kirk Christiansen who started making wooden toys in his small workshop in Billund, Denmark. He later decided to name his trademark toys and workshop ‘LEGO’ with the Danish meaning ‘play well’ and in Latin it means ‘I put together / I assemble’. The park will feature Fun Town, Miniland USA, Duplo village, imagination zone, pirates cove and Lego city to name a few. This latest attraction for Florida will be located in Winter Haven, just 45 minutes south-west of the Orlando theme parks. At the time of writing this, the prices are $65 plus tax for adult one day admission and $55 plus tax for children (aged 3-12) and seniors (aged 60+). We have found a preview video for you to take a look at.
