Location: Winter Haven, FL
If you are not ready for the thrills are Universal Studios or Walt Disney World is not in your budget then there is LEGOLAND Florida in Winter Haven, Florida. Cypress Gardens was sitting dormant after it closed in 2009 until January 15, 2010 when Merlin Entertainments made a press release stating the company's intention to build a LEGOLAND theme park on the former site of Cypress Gardens. Six days later, a news conference was held with Florida Governor Charlie Crist and park officials. Merlin Entertainment wasted no time and got straight to building. During the re-branding to Legoland Florida three roller coasters and all six thrill rides were removed from the park and relocated to other parks. On October 15, 2011 the park re-opened as LEGOLAND Florida. On May 26, 2012 the park’s water park was re-opened.
The park has thirteen themed areas. They are The Beginning, LEGO Kingdoms, Duplo Village, Fun Town, Imagination Zone, Land of Adventure, LEGO City, Miniland USA, The World of Chima, Pirates' Cove, Cypress Gardens and LEGOLAND Water Park. The most unique area of the park is LEGO Technic which boasts LEGO Technic Test Track roller coaster, Technicycle and Project X. Miniland USA boasts many cool LEGO models of landmarks around Florida and the United States. The park’s most unique roller coaster is a LEGOLAND Florida exclusive called Flying School. Flying School is located in the LEGO City area of the park. Flying School was originally opened in 2004 as Swamp Thing.
LEGOLAND Florida has a lot to offer for a small park. In 2014, the park will add Duplo Valley as a new area of the park. On July 3, 2013 the park opened The World of Chima area of the park. Along with the The World of Chima, a new 4-D show called The Legend of Chima also opened in spring of 2013. No matter how old or how small you are. No matter your age you are never to old for LEGOLAND Florida.
