Theme Park News

LegolandRumor has it Legoland Florida is planning some exciting new additions to their park in the next coming years. Could a new mini Star Wars area be coming to the park? What about a new Legoland Florida hotel? According to some recently posted Legoland Florida photos there are quite a few additions brewing at the Orlando theme park! To keep you completely up to date on the possible expansions here’s what’s rumored to be coming to Legoland Florida very soon:

Legoland Florida has only been open for 7 months and already the newest Orlando theme park has proved its place in the theme park mecca of the world having made a whopping $11 million! That’s pretty significant considering Legoland Florida expected to lose $3 million during its first year. With families flocking to the park from all over the nation, it’s no surprise Legoland Florida is considering opening a hotel to accommodate its guests. Rumor has it that the park had been trying to purchase the Admiral’s Inn/Parkview Hotel and the deal recently went through. That means guests should plan on making their Legoland Florida day trip a weekend getaway!

Star Wars fans ears are probably burning with the rumor that a Star Wars expansion for Miniland U.S.A. is expected to blast into the park in the coming years. Legoland in Carlsbad, California opened a Star Wars Miniland last March that has proved to be very popular amongst guests of all ages, especially since it features seven scenes from the popular movie series. And since Legoland Florida likes to mirror Legoland California and with all of the Star Wars fans who flock to Walt Disney World ® annually for Star Wars Weekends (This year Star Wars Weekends starts May 18th), people can’t help but assume the well-liked Star Wars area from Legoeland California will head to Legoland Florida very soon.

Aside from adding new attractions, Legoland Florida is rumored to be expanding two of its already existing attractions and areas – Coastersaurus and Pirate’s Cove. The wooden roller coaster that takes guests on a prehistoric adventure through life-sized LEGO brick dinosaurs, Coastersaurus is expected to add a second train to its lineup. 

Arrgh! It’s been rumored for a few months now that Pirate’s Cove, the area that houses Legoland Florida’s own water ski and stunt show, The Battle for Brickbeard’s Bounty and Cap’n Brickbeard’s Burgers will be adding more pirate-like attractions. Does that mean we can expect to see the pirate-ship water battle ride like the one at Legoland California? We hope so!

Stay tuned to see if any of these rumors pan out. In the meantime you can enjoy Legoland Florida as it is with discounted tickets right here on Orlando Fun Tickets.
