Legoland Florida: Everything is Awesome!
I made my first visit to Legoland Florida recently and I have to admit that it wasn’t what I expected! Of course, I was ready to add the four coaster credits, but I also wanted to check out historic Cypress Gardens. In exchange for my visit to Legoland I was given media passes to attend for the day.
Is the Central Florida theme park worth a visit?
Legoland Florida is heaven for anyone under ten or anyone that loves Lego bricks. There’s a lot to do for fans, including checking out all of the Lego sculptures. I only spent a day, but it was a great way to experience many of the rides (some I was too big for).

Legoland Florida Thoughts
The Lego fan is going to love seeing all of the Lego sculptures throughout the park. There was Lego food, Lego people, Lego animals, Lego cars and so much more.
Ninjago and Lost Kingdom Adventure were two dark rides that the whole family will enjoy. Ninjago was a dark ride shooter, like Toy Story Mania except that you use your hands as the controller. It was really pretty amazing and a great next step in interactivity.
Legoland Florida Roller Coasters!
Legoland does have four coasters, but I only was able to ride three of them during my visit. Coastersuarus is a wooden coaster with new Mini-llenium cars that are made for young riders. Anyone over 5′ 11″ is going to enjoy the ride, but you will need to cushion your knees. It’s a classic wooden coaster that offers some great airtime.
Flight School is a standard suspended coaster, like the Great Aerial Chase at Carowinds. It’s a junior coaster that offers a bumpy ride for grown-ups. But kids do seem to love it.
The mouse coaster was closed, so I guess the means that I need to make a mother trip.
Dragon was a complete surprise and is much fun. The first half of the coaster is a dark ride. It transitions into a short, but fun coaster for the second half.
I recommend that families with children under ten spend the day at Legoland Florida. It’s a quick 45 minute drive from Walt Disney world. Lego fans will have a great time, since there are some amazing Lego displays.
