LEGOLAND FLORIDA RESORT BEGINNINGS & HISTORY
The Beginning does not have any attractions, although it does house the park’s primary gift stores, eateries, and administrative offices. The Legoland Florida Hotel is situated outside the park’s main entrance.
Moreover, Legoland will be located on the site of Cypress Gardens theme park, which closed permanently in 2009. Merlin Entertainments announced plans for Legoland in January 2010. The revelation leaked a day before a press conference after a local newspaper got an email from governmental authorities.
Legoland Florida opened on Saturday, October 15, 2011, after a relatively quick development phase (when compared to parks constructed from the ground up).
In addition, Legolands Florida’s first on-site hotel, the LEGOLAND Hotel, opened to the public on May 15, 2015. So, the most recent development was the introduction of the world’s first Lego-themed theme park section, which opened in 2019. It opened on April 7, 2017, 34 miles east of the theme park on the western side of Lake Dexter.
Everyone is a Hero!!
LEGOLAND Florida is the world’s biggest interactive LEGOLAND Park, covering 150 acres. It has more than 50 rides, shows, and attractions, restaurants, shops, a beautiful botanical garden, and the LEGOLAND Water Park, all oriented at families with children aged 2 to 12.
Pink-knuckle roller coasters, the Imagination Zone, Miniland USA, and LEGO® City, where children can learn to drive by freely piloting their own boats and LEGO automobiles, are among the attractions.
What is the location of LEGOLAND Florida Resort?
Busch Gardens Tampa is about an hour north of Anna Maria Island. With thrilling roller coasters, fantastic live concerts, and animal exhibits, this theme park is well worth a day’s visit. The 7-mile-long barrier reef is one of the world’s most popular tourist attractions.
Theme Parks Attractions
On October 15, 2011, the Legoland Florida theme park opened. The park is 145 acres (0.59 km2) in size, making it the second-largest Legoland park in the United Kingdom after Legoland Windsor.
The park, which is designed for families with children aged 2 to 12, contains over fifty rides, shows, attractions, restaurants, and shops, as well as the original Cypress Gardens, which pays respect to the park’s historical use. Unlike some other Legoland attractions, no children are required to enter.
Peppa Pig Theme Park
Merlin Entertainments announced on February 25, 2021 that it would build a Peppa Pig theme park in 2022. It will be the first freestanding theme park based on the children’s property, as well as the second dry park and first non-Lego-related theme park to open in a Legoland Resort.
The park’s six primary attractions will be revealed on August 13, 2021.
A year after the park’s initial announcement, on October 13, 2021, it was confirmed that it would open on February 24, 2022.
Legoland Water Park
The Legoland Water Park began as “Splash Island,” which opened in 2005 with five rides within Cypress Gardens. Also, Splash Island was the only water park in Polk County when it first opened. After buying Cypress Gardens, Merlin Entertainments redesigned Splash Island, replacing Polynesian themes with Lego attractions. So, the Legoland Water Park has included a sixth attraction, Duplo Splash Safari, a toddler water play area with slides and fountains in a small pool. On May 26, 2012, the park reopened under its new name.
Entry to the Water Park requires the purchase of a theme park admission ticket. The initial supplementary fee for entrance to the water park was $12 for ages 4 and up, with the intention of luring tourists back for a second day at Legoland.

H2O is the way to go! From answering my emails about availability, to giving us pointers on where to go for the smoothest ride (had my little one with). Dale did an awesome job explaining the jet skis to us and was very thorough with the handling and operation of them. Chris & Blossom run a stellar business and when we come back to Anna Maria, we will definitely rent from them again.
