A relative newcomer to the world of Florida theme parks, Legoland Florida nestles in Winter Haven, 47 miles south-west of Orlando. Aimed firmly at tourists aged three to 12, it has 18 rides, including four gentle rollercoasters, as well as the kitsch charm of Miniland USA, where US landmarks like the Statue of Liberty are constructed from the ubiquitous plastic bricks. Duplo Valley, with mini tractor and train rides, is new for 2014.
Price: One-day tickets cost £40 for adults, £36 for three- to 12-year-olds. Passes that include the resort’s waterpark cost £49 for adults and £45 for children.
