Legoland Florida Plans Expansion for Lego Movie World Attraction


Legoland Florida appears to be gearing up for additions to its newest attraction, reports Veronica Brezina-Smith for the Tampa Bay Business Journal. The theme park, which is located in Winter Haven and owned by Merlin Entertainments Plc, has filed an environmental resource permit with Southwest Florida Water Management District for a project called LEGO PEMB #1.

Some are speculating that the 3,600-square-foot metal building included in the plans will be for storage, although Legoland Florida’s Public Relations Manager Brittany Williams has not confirmed this. Said Williams of the project, “It will be the most immersive world yet. There will be three rides and one is going to be the new theming for The Quest for Chi, a boat ride, and the other two rides have not yet been announced.”

According to earlier applications, the new Lego Movie World attraction will a new outdoor ride and a new ride building, as well as a new activities building. Architect WMB-ROI Inc. in Lakeland is completing the expansion, and the Legoland Movie World is expected to open in the spring of 2019.

Legoland Florida is also planning a 150-room expansion to their hotel property, perhaps in anticipation of the traffic the new attraction will bring.
