Polk County Is the Secret Florida Vacation Spot Perfect for FamiliesSponsored
LEGOLAND Florida Resort
Polk County is also home to Florida’s newest attractions, LEGOLAND® Florida Resort. LEGOLAND is a theme park built around, well, LEGOs, offering everything from roller coasters and a water park to 3-D movies and plenty of opportunities to build with those favorites from childhood.
Ongoing is the premier of LEGOLAND Florida Resort’s newest land, LEGO Movie World. Incorporating elements of the smash hit “The LEGO Movie,” as well as the sequel, “The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part,” it continues the park’s focus on play-centric interactive experiences. LEGOLAND Florida Resort is located in the heart of Central Florida, Winter Haven.
Once in LEGO Movie World, kids can hop aboard Emmet’s Triple Decker Flying Couch on The LEGO Movie Masters of Flight ride. Whisked away thanks to a full-dome virtual screen, riders fly along with characters from both the first and the second movies. Or they can walk through a rainbow portal to join in the fun at Unikitty’s Disco Drop, which sweeps guests to the tiptop of Cloud Cuckoo Land, then drops, spins and bounces them back home, all while basking in Unikitty’s many personalities.
Not to be forgotten is the Battle of Bricksburg, which features the aliens from the first Lego Movie who can only be stopped by spraying water at targets. And finally, guests can finish off the day in downtown Bricksburg, the home of Emmet’s Super Suite, a character meet-and-greet experience where guests can hang out with Emmet and all of his friends inside his apartment or stop into the Taco Tuesday Everyday eatery for a quick bite. The downtown area also has a space-themed playground structure inspired by Benny’s spaceship, plus special photo opportunities.
Built for kids ages 2-12, LEGOLAND Florida Resort is a multi-day vacation destination includes an interactive, 150-acre theme park with more than 50 rides, shows and attractions plus a water park, the 152-room LEGOLAND Hotel and the 166-room LEGOLAND Beach Retreat.
No matter what you have in mind as you visit The Sunshine State, a visit to Florida would be incomplete without a visit to Central Florida’s Polk County.
