POLK COUNTY (CBS4) – Florida’s newest kid-friendly amusement park, Legoland, will officially open on Saturday, October 15th.

The new 150-acre theme park, located midway between Orlando and Tampa, will cater to kids’ ages 2 to 12 with more than 50 rides, from roller coasters to race cars, as well as family-focused shows and attractions.

The park is being built southeast of Winter Haven on the former site of longtime Florida attraction Cypress Gardens.

Legoland Florida is the second park in the U.S. built by the Danish-owned company known for its signature plastic building blocks and stubby action figures. The first park is in Carlsbad, Calif., and there are also Legolands in Great Britain, Germany and Denmark, where parent company Lego Group is based.

Another Legoland is under development in Malaysia.

In addition to announcing the opening date, the park also unveiled a new online reservations program where travelers can book tickets, accommodations, airlines and rental cars through the Legoland Florida website.

One-day admission to the park is $65 for ages 13 to 59 and $55 for ages 3 to 12 and 60 and older. A standard annual pass for all ages is $99. A premium annual pass, which includes parking and discounts on food and merchandise, is $159 for adults and $129 for children and seniors. Parking will cost $12.

    OMG!!! Its so expensive! With parking it would be almost $200 for Mom & Dad and 2 kids under 12. Then theres food and souvenirs.
    Don’t think we’ll be visiting there and we only live 4hrs away.

    Get an annual pass and go a few times during the year. It should be a lot of fun.
