LEGOLAND Florida Announces Largest Expansion in Park History
In a brief rapid fire style but still very fun presentation LEGOLAND Florida announced five new additions to the resort, all debuting withing the next year or so!
First up was LEGOLAND Beach Retreat:
The concepts for this resort look great with colorful duplex bungalows and more!
Next up we were nearly attacked by a ninja who was here to tell us about Ninjago The Ride:
The ride layout will be different from it California counterpart but will employ the same interactive technology to shoot fireballs, lightning and more using nothing more than your hands!
This ride will be a whole new area in the park near the wooden roller coaster Coasterasaurus, Lego Ninjago World will open in early 2017:
Next up was the highlight of already open Creative Cove featuring build a boat races at LEGOLAND Florida Waterpark:
Kids can build and race boats down a winding channel, this looks like a very neat addition to the waterpark:
A third movie will be coming to the Well’s Fargo Theater in late May as the Nexo Knights join in an 4D battle for the kingdom!
The other 2 shows will remain in the theater as well and the shows wil alternate throughout each day so you will be able to see all 3!
In the final announcement we learned of a new nighttime event coming weekends in the summer to the park! LEGOLAND Night Lights! The resort will debut its latest all-new event in June, a celebration of summertime fun featuring extended park hours, meet-and-greet opportunities with favorite LEGO characters, exclusive opportunities to build alongside LEGO Master Model Builders and a spectacular, brick-tacular NINJAGO fireworks display that will light the night above Lake Eloise with brilliant colors and triumphant music. Held exclusively at LEGOLAND Florida Resort, the party is included with park admission and will take place every Saturday and Sunday from June 18 to July 31.
The exciting new projects represent the largest period of growth in the nearly 4½-year history of LEGOLAND Florida Resort, a rapid trajectory of expansions that has included LEGOLAND Water Park (May 2012), LEGO STAR WARS™ Miniland Model Display (November 2012), LEGO World of Chima™ (July 2013), DUPLO Valley (May 2014), LEGOLAND Hotel (May 2015), Heartlake City (June 2015), and phased restorations of the historic Cypress Gardens botanical wonderland, which recently celebrated its 80th anniversary.
With all of these additions the park has definitely given us plenty to talk about! Look for more coming soon on each of these projects!
