Legoland Florida - new destination for themepark lovers


Exciting news for Lego fans, Legoland Florida opens its doors next month - and I have to say it sounds good.

I attended the press launch for the new park this week and the video presentation made it all look very exciting. Mind you, I haven't visited the park in the UK yet, even though it has been on my list of things to do for years (and my daughter keeps bending my ear about it), so I don't know how different Legoland Florida will be or if it will offer something the Windsor park doesn't.

A colleague at the same event who has been to Windsor several times couldn't see anything new in the film but we wait to find out.

So, a few facts about the new attraction and its surroundings...
** It is situated in Polk County, Central Florida, within easy drive of Oralndo (about 30minutes drive from Kissimmee), Tampa and the airport.

** Ideal for families and children aged from 2 - 12.

** More than 50 rides and attractions.

** Ten Lego lands are located on the 150-acre site.

** Attractions close by include Bok Tower Gardens, water skiing, airboat rides and rodeo.
If my past performance on visiting Legoland Windsor is anything to go by it will be a long, long time before I get to the Florida park so if anybody can add to what I've said - how the development is progressing, how it is being received by the local community, and of course what it's like once it opens, I'd love to hear it.
