Legoland Opens Saturday Near Winter Haven
MIAMI (CBSMiami.com) – If you’ve ever meticulously put together sculptures and other items with Legos, then the new Legoland opening in Central Florida this weekend may be your dream destination.
The theme park was built where Cypress Gardens used to be located. That puts Legoland roughly 40 miles away from the big parks of Disney, Sea World, and Universal Studios.
Legoland was designed for kids from ages 2 to 12 and operators believe the park will draw upwards of 2 million visitors per year.
Admission to Legoland will be $75 for adults, $65 for kids 3-12 and adults over 60.
But, the park will only be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. for roughly six months per year and also be closed on Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s.
During summer, holiday weeks, and around six weeks during spring break time, the park will be open seven days a week and later in the evening, according to CBS4 news partner the Miami Herald.
