WINTER HAVEN (CBSMiami) – Florida’s newest major theme park, LEGOLAND, announced Tuesday that it is expanding this summer and the new area will be based on the World of Chima.

The new area will reportedly have families work on a journey in search of a mystical energy source through an interactive water-ride experience called The Quest for CHI. There will also be a new Speedorz Arena and a new 4-D movie.

“This is the first time a theme park has invested in a major expansion concurrently with the rollout of a new brand and product line, and it was an easy decision based on how well LEGO Legends of Chima has been received by children and those who are young at heart around the world,” LEGOLAND Florida General Manager Adrian Jones said in a statement. “This is also a reflection of the overall success of the park, which has already enabled us to open a new Water Park and build multiple new attractions during the past 18 months.”

LEGO said the Legends of Chima line is the highest tested new theme from the company in more than a decade. The overall experience at LEGOLAND will be presented by Cartoon Network, which airs an animated series based on Chima.
