Legoland Florida Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

^ Totally. I just guess I would have expected from Legoland, though to have it all together by now. The videos that they have of each land show a bunch of rides, but I still don't get the feeling that the videos are supposed to showcase EXACTLY what rides will be in each land, or an "idea."


I mean, the videos clearly show things like:


- The Dragon

- Dark Ride

- The Jr. Woodie re-themed to something dinosaur related

- Driving School

- A 4-D Movie


But even still it's all a little ambiguous. I'm patient and I'll wait...


My guess is that with an October opening (versus early in the year) they are taking everything at a calculated pace, so that their "news" is timely when released and not competing with other Florida amusement park news.

I'm a bit surprised they didn't try to keep more of the coasters and re-theme them to fit their Lego concept. I mean everything that was there with the exception of Starliner was allready a family or kid sized coaster. Thos pictures look like the roller skater and the inverted roller skater have both been dismantled. I'm pretty excited for this place to open but having never been to a Legoland before I really don't know what to expect from it.

I konw the Cypress gardens lineup was very mediocre but its not like the other Legoland's of the world have El Toro's and Maverick's either. I thought that the Roller Skater and the suspended family coaster (maybe the mouse) if themed well could really have fit into the overall Legoland concept.


After reading that article it sounds like the Lego City Section will have a "Flight School – An inverted steel coaster that lets kids feel the thrill of flight " so maybe they are saving the Junior inverted coaster after all. If not does anyone want to start a "Save the Swamp Thing" web site with me?

^So that is a bit more encouraging. But am I reading it right that they're keeping the SLC in Training!?!? Ugh!


Seems like it will be a lot like the California one when it opened with way less attractions than it has today, but as long as they keep adding as they've done in California it should be a winner.


One disappointment for me is the lineup for Miniland. Seems VERY similar to California's. I've enjoyed going to all of the different Legolands and seeing DIFFERENT Minilands.

Flight School – An inverted steel coaster that lets kids feel the thrill of flight


It's a wordy article, so I went back and italicized the rides/attractions and put the coasters in red pen.

I'm actually a bit surprised by the inclusion of Lego Batman. I love the game and I love Batman so I tried to buy some Lego Batman stuff at the Mall of America and Legoland Deutschland, but to no avail. I was told that they discontinued the line.


This looks like a pretty good line-up for the park, but no water ride besides the AQUAZONE® Wave Racers, that seems odd.

I totally agree the lack of water/boat rides seems odd.


Also, I would TOTALLY jump on that $99 pass if this park was remotely close to Orlando, or even just right off the interstate. But I'm not sure I would visit twice the first year with its location...it makes me sad, I wish it was more accessible!

I live in Jacksonville and I always think that Cypress Gardens/Legoland is closer to Orlando than it is. When I used to go there it just seemed like it took me forever to get to the park from Orlando. I too wish it was in a better location. I am worried that the location will inevitably cause problems for Legoland.

There was a lot of doubt about Cypress Gardens, but I can't imagine Legoland not working out. People in SoCal go out of their way to visit the one in Carlsbad, which is about 60 miles South of Disneyland and 30-40 miles north of San Diego...basically, it's kind of in the middle of nowhere...just like the one in Florida.


The California one, though, is like 30 seconds off the Interstate.

$2500 for the lifetime pass? This is assuming several things:


1) You will live at least for the next 25 years to get your money's worth

2) You will not move out of where you live for the next 25 years

3) The park will still be around in 25 years.


That's a lot of ??? when dropping that kind of money. I wonder if Hard Rock Park offered the same kind of deal!

I would say that if one were to buy the lifetime pass, they would first add up how often they go to the park, average expense of every visit to the park, and also how long they would be planning to stay within the area of the park. If someone was a frequent visitor, I could see them easily making their money back within a couple years.


At $75 a pop for single day admission, it would take about 35 visits to make up the $2500 plus tax.

I believe there's a £600 lifetime pass at Legoland Windsor - just inside the entrance, they have a wall where Lego mosaic nametags are put up, showing who's bought lifetime passes. I think there were about 20 names up, but there may have been quite a few others who just wanted to preserve their privacy.


I know I'd probably buy a Lego Around the World lifetime pass - hint, hint, Merlin - if they were available, and didn't mean I'd have to sell a kidney or two.


On a probably equally nerdy note, the Lego fan in me is slightly disappointed that the attractions line-up, not just Miniland, is pretty much note-for-note the same as Carlsbad's, but I don't expect any GP will give a Lego monkey's, which is fair in the end.

Same. Having just visited Legoland CA, earlier this year, I don't think it will be worth it for us. I was really, really looking forward to this. We need a cheaper alternative to replace our WDW passes. Now I'm just bummed out.

Anyone else notice the stark lack of a Kuka-Arm like at most of the other parks? Kinda odd, they seemed to be on a bit of a kick with those.

Yes, and my response is also the same with the water rides, that I think it's unrealistic that the park opens with EVERYTHING that the other parks have evolved into over the years.


Remember, the Carlsbad location (or any of the others for that matter) didn't open with the Mouse, they didn't open with the dark ride, and even the Carlsbad park, other than the Aquazone and a kiddie long flume does have any "proper" water rides.


I fully expect that over the few years you'll see expansions that will include:


- Water rides

- Kuka Arm Attraction

- Sealife

- Water park?


I would say that most of the "staples" that you see in other Legoland parks are included...but of course at "Orlando Ticket Prices."
