This morning Legoland and Merlin Entertainments have announced a new expansion coming to their Florida theme park. Lego Movie World will allow fans to immerse themselves in the world of the Lego Movie and also bring 3 brand new, world class attractions to the park.
“THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD at LEGOLAND Florida Resort is the only place in the world that you can experience the pure wonder and imagination inspired by THE LEGOMOVIE universe,” said Rex Jackson, general manager of LEGOLAND Florida Resort. “We’ve been hard at work, building brick-by-brick, to create state-of-the-art experiences that bring THE LEGO MOVIE to life.”
The new area is set to open in Spring 2019 and will be heavily inspired by the original movie as well as the yet to be released THE LEGO MOVIE 2: The Second Part. As well as a new meet and greet location the expansion will also include the following attractions:
- THE LEGO MOVIE Masters of Flight: Hop aboard Emmet’s Triple Decker Flying Couch! This flying theater attraction whisks guests away on an action-packed adventure on a suspended ride with a full-dome virtual screen, giving the sensational feeling of flying alongside some familiar and some new faces like Sweet Mayhem, a character set to debut in the upcoming feature THE LEGOMOVIE 2: The Second Part. The one-of-a-kind experience is the first attraction at a major theme park in the United States that embeds a 180-degree turn in the ride experience.
- Unikitty’s Disco Drop: Enter through the rainbow portal to join the fun with Unikitty and her many personalities. This ride swoops guests to the tiptop of Cloud Cuckoo Land, then drops, spins and bounces them back down to earth, creating a thrilling and fun experience.
