We are only 20 minutes from the new Legoland! Here’s the news:
Merlin Entertainments Group, which bought the property earlier this year, rolled out its plan Thursday to reopen the theme park as Legoland Florida in late 2011.
With up to 50 new rides, shows and attractions, it will be the biggest of five Legolands worldwide. The park is packaged to entice parents and kids 2 to 12 years old to spend a day immersed in a world that revolves around plastic Lego bricks, one of the world’s most popular toys.
The plans include reopening the historic botanical garden that founders Dick and Julie Pope carved out of a cypress swamp in 1936 and fashioned into what was claimed to be Florida’s first theme park. The once-famous water ski shows could return in the form of a Lego-themed stunt show, and the park will get its own studio with a full-time staff of Lego model artists.
The centerpiece at Legoland Florida will be a town-square-sized hub with detailed, miniature replicas of cities, sites and people like the White House, Mount Rushmore and Abe Lincoln modeled from more than 40 million plastic Lego bricks.
