Legoland Florida success in Orlando

OrlandoFunTickets.com is proud to add Legoland Florida to its repertoire of theme parks! The newest Orlando theme park officially opened in October 2011 and has quickly become one of the most sought after theme parks in Central Florida.

The first major theme park to open in the United States in more than a decade, Legoland Florida is the largest Leogland Park in the world and has been deemed “the ultimate kid-friendly amusement park.” And it’s no surprise why. With a unique mix of over 50 rides, shows and attractions, including ten one-of-a-kind zones the kids are sure to love, and many other hands-on and interactive attractions, Legoland Florida will win the kids over every time! Here are just a few of the zones kids ages 2-12 are sure to enjoy:

The Beginning is the grand introduction to Legoland with one of the largest LEGO stores and genuine imported Danishes. From here, you can enter Island in the Sky, a 150-foot rotating platform ride, and see the majestic 360 degree view of Legoland ® Florida.

 Fun Town houses the LEGO Factory Tour, an inside look at how LEGO bricks are made from beginning to end. Also, there’s the two-story Grand Carousel and the Fun Town Theater, where three different 4D movies are showcased throughout the day.

 LEGO Kingdoms is a trek back to the medieval times where the Legoland Castle stands and even dragons roam. Featured rides and attractions include: The Dragon, Royal Joust, Merlin’s Challenge, The Forestmen’s Hideout and Princess Makeover.

 Miniland USA features recreations of the country’s most prominent landmarks built with LEGOs. See the towering buildings of New York or the world-famous strip of Las Vegas. Venture to our nation’s capital, Washington, D.C., for the cherry blossoms and monuments or explore Florida LEGO style with the Kennedy Space Center and the Daytona International Speedway. Plus, there’s a pirate-themed section where two pirate ships have a confrontation in the high seas.

 Land of Adventure includes attractions from the prehistoric era, Egyptian times, and explores the wildlife of Africa. Adventures include: Coastersaurus, Lost Kingdom Adventure, Pharaoh’s Revenge, Beetle Bounce, and Safari Trek.

So far, company leaders have been pleased with the reception the new park has already received from Florida residents.

“In essence, we’re establishing an entirely new visitation category in this market because every ride, show and attraction within LEGOLAND Florida has been designed exclusively with kids ages 2 to 12 in mind,” said Nick Varney, CEO for Merlin Entertainments Group.
