Where are you going on your summer vacation? If your answer isn’t Bricksburg, then you need to change plans! No passports or airfare needed for those of us in Polk County! Created in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and LEGO®, the newest expansion features three new rides and numerous attractions, all inspired by the characters and themes of the worldwide blockbuster THE LEGO® MOVIE™ and the exciting big-screen animated adventure sequel THE LEGO® MOVIE™ 2: The Second Part.
THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD marks the largest expansion in LEGOLAND Florida Resort history. The creative masterminds from Merlin Magic Making, the global creative and delivery division of parent company Merlin Entertainments Group, re-created downtown Bricksburg with its lovable characters, creative eating spaces and authentic cityscape where guests can experience Emmet’s Super Suite and many other surprises!
“As we continue to grow our kids business, we are thrilled to partner with LEGOLAND Florida Resort, a leader in kids and family entertainment, to bring THE LEGO MOVIE franchise to life like never before,” said Peter van Roden, SVP, Global Themed Entertainment for Warner Bros. Consumer Products. “This highly-themed, colorful land is faithfully inspired by the characters, adventures and landmarks made popular in THE LEGO MOVIE films, and we are proud to bring this one-of-a-kind experience to our fans.”
Not only will guests feel like life-size LEGO minifigures in the heavily-immersive land, but they’ll also be able to enjoy some of the world’s most-advanced ride technology.
“THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD is a game changer for LEGOLAND Florida Resort,” said Keith Carr, project director of Merlin Magic Making. “The immersion and theming that we’ve incorporated into the area is unlike anything we’ve ever done. Our guests will have so much fun on all three rides, but the land’s marquee ride, THE LEGO MOVIE Masters of Flight encompasses the only 180-degree turn on a flying theater in the world.”
THE LEGO MOVIE Masters of Flight takes guests on a suspended ride aboard Emmet’s Triple Decker Couch surrounded by a full-dome virtual screen, giving the sensational feeling of flying through a world created completely from LEGO® bricks.
Unikitty’s Disco Drop takes guests through a rainbow-filled journey based on Unikitty and her many moods. Once on the ride, guests will swoop to the tiptop of Cloud Cuckoo Land, then drop, spin and bounce back down to earth in sync with Unikitty’s wide range of emotions, creating a thrilling and frenzied experience.
At Battle of Bricksburg, the only water ride at LEGOLAND Florida Resort, riders are challenged to stop DUPLO aliens from invading and stealing LEGO bricks by spraying water at targets from their boats. The riders aren’t the only ones who can enjoy playing in the water, outside of the ride will be water cannons for guests to spray and help the riders save the day.
Guests can also climb, slide and explore a space-themed playground structure inspired by Benny’s spaceship. Once you’ve worked up an appetite stopping aliens, riding on flying couches, climbing on spaceships, you can eat everyone’s favorite food, tacos! In Bricksburg, it’s “Taco Tuesday Everyday!” Refuel at the restaurant where every day is a fiesta! Tasty tacos inspired by THE LEGO MOVIE characters, sweet treats and cold refreshments come together to build a meal sure to satisfy any hunger.
Snap selfies with the stars of THE LEGO MOVIE films inside Emmet’s Super Suite or shop at The Awesome Shop! Guests will discover exclusive THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD gear and LEGO sets inside the retail store where everything is awesome!
THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD will also feature expansive LEGO models made out of nearly 300 thousand LEGO bricks combined. These exclusive new LEGO models will make for picture perfect backdrops. The largest model, the iconic crane from the movie posters, will provide a grand entrance and transport guests to Bricksburg.
“We couldn’t be more excited to officially open THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD,” said Rex Jackson, general manager of LEGOLAND Florida Resort. “THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD is a key piece to our expansion and growth as we further cement ourselves as a multi-day destination.”
To continue the fun beyond the Park, guests can enjoy the ultimate vacation (or slumber party) just steps away at LEGOLAND® Hotel in the new THE LEGO MOVIE themed rooms. Designed with familiar scenery and beloved characters from the movie, no detail is left untouched. Adults can relax in their own room inspired by Emmet’s apartment, while kids dream of spaceship adventures in a separate children’s room themed after Benny’s Spaceship.
Also available on specific event dates, guests can purchase an “Access to Awesome” pass which provides early theme park admission to experience THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD attractions prior to park opening (8:30 a.m.-10 a.m.).
LEGOLAND Hotel is a five-story, 152-room Hotel which immerses guests into a creative LEGO world designed to bring children’s imaginations to life. It is located just 130 “kid steps” from the main entrance of LEGOLAND Florida. LEGOLAND Beach Retreat combines the fun of surf, sand and sun with the creativity of LEGO bricks and offers lakeside views from nearly every room. The village-style, lakefront resort features 83 single-story beach bungalows, offering 166 separate accommodations that sleep up to five. In spring 2020 LEGOLAND Florida Resort will open its third accommodation, Pirate Island, located adjacent to LEGOLAND Hotel.
“Insider Tip” from Shawn Mikus, Head of Public Relations: “Even though we are the park built for kids, parents and older kids can have just as much fun. With over 50 rides, shows and attractions, and multiple beer options throughout the park for adults 21+, there’s fun for everyone at LEGOLAND Florida Resort!”
