WINTER HAVEN, Fla. (WFLA) – It’s been ten years since LEGOLAND Florida Resort opened its doors to the public in Polk County and, to celebrate, the park has a special birthday event planned.
A 20-foot tall cake made with 180,000 LEGO bricks will be on display at the Winter Haven park until the end of the year.
LEGOLAND has also announced the opening of the new interactive exhibit – LEGOLAND Story and the LEGOLAND Coffee Co.
While checking out LEGOLAND Story, guests will learn about how LEGOLAND was built including its history with Cypress Gardens, a theme park that closed in 2009. The original ride vehicle from Cypress Gardens’ Triple Hurricane attraction and an interactive Minifigure trading wall will be on display.
New sweet treats were served during the park’s celebration, including an Apple Fries Cupcake and a birthday latte.
LEGOLAND’S birthday event on Friday revealed several special announcements, including a brand new ride named Pirate River Quest. In 2022, families will be able to take a journey through the waterways of Cypress Gardens and go on a treasure hunt.
Guests filled the park wearing birthday hats and danced along with LEGOLAND characters and performers. Winter Haven Mayor Brad Dantzler also proclaimed Oct. 15 as LEGOLAND Day during the birthday celebration.
The park opens at 10 a.m. every day, you can find more information about tickets on their website.
