UPDATE December 2013
- Legoland Florida is adding a new hotel to its theme park operations
at Winter Haven in Polk County, Florida. This begins a transformation
to a resort destination. The Winter Haven theme park said it will
build a 152-room Lego-themed hotel just steps from the Main entrance
to LegoLand Florida. Expected to open in 2015, the multicolored, four-story
Legoland Hotel will immerse families with young children in the world
of Lego, with bright décor based on the popular play sets. Although
small compared with Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando, the 2-year-old
Legoland Florida is following an example set by those giant resorts,
which have built on-site hotels where guests stay longer and spend
more time and money.
It marks a shift
in our emphasis on our marketing and moves us into further markets,
overnights and internationals that will stay here and use Central
Florida as a base for other activities," said General Manager Adrian
Jones. He said the expansion is a testament to the success of Legoland
Florida, which opened in 2011 on the site of the former Cypress Gardens.
The Legoland Florida Theme Park has expanded twice, first by opening
a water park and later a new "signature themed land" called the World
of Chima. Legoland's target market is families with children ages
2 to 12 years old.
There are currently
four other LEGOLAND Parks in the world – LEGOLAND California in Carlsbad,
LEGOLAND Billund in Denmark, LEGOLAND Deutschland near Günzburg, Germany
and LEGOLAND Windsor outside of London. The LEGOLAND theme parks are
a part of Merlin Entertainments Group, the second largest attractions
operator in the world. For the most current information, visit www.LEGOLAND.com.
