Legoland Florida Resort and Kidz Bop recently announced a multi-year alliance that will make popular kids’ music brand the “official music partner” for the Lego theme park. The partnership announcement coincides with the launch of Lego Ninjago World, a new theme park land set to open Jan. 12, 2017, where kids will “become the ninja” in their very own martial arts adventure inspired by the long-running Lego franchise.
To celebrate the Florida park’s expansion, The Kidz Bop Kids recently recorded an original version of the high-energy Lego Ninjago theme song, “The Weekend Whip.” In its music video, the Kids are joined by brother-and-sister ninjas Kai and Nya while demonstrating five “signature” ninja hand moves guests can use to defeat villains and capture the high score on Lego Ninjago The Ride, a groundbreaking attraction featuring technology never seen outside a Legoland theme park. The video will debut Friday, Dec. 30, and play in-park at Lego Ninjago World.
Kidz Bop music and imagery will be seen and heard throughout the Winter Haven, Fla., resort, in a first-of-its-kind collaboration for the multi-day vacation destination and music brand. Legoland Florida Resort will name its main performance venue “The Kidz Bop Theater,” where The Kidz Bop Kids will perform annually, along with other kid-friendly talent. As the resort’s official music partner, Kidz Bop will write and produce an original theme song for the Florida site, to be titled “Built for Kids.”
Kidz Bop recently shot a music video and national TV commercial for their latest album, Kidz Bop 34, on location at a LEGOLAND theme park. A “Kids Go Free” coupon for a free child’s admission to Legoland Florida Resort will be included in all physical copies of the album.
The partnership also will be supported by extensive social media activations, including a sweepstakes in which one lucky fan will win a trip to Legoland Florida Resort to see The Kidz Bop Kids perform.
“As the premier vacation destination built for kids, Legoland Florida Resort is thrilled to join with the talented team at KIDZ BOP to deliver memorable musical experiences for our guests both inside the theme park and beyond,” said Rex Jackson, vice president of marketing and sales for Legoland Florida Resort. “We look forward to showcasing Kidz Bop in many creative ways together.”
“This partnership is the beginning of a tremendous collaboration that will bring KIDZ BOP to life in a completely new and meaningful entertainment experience,” said Victor Zaraya, president of Kidz Bop. “We’re honored and thrilled to be working with Legoland Florida Resort in this way and think that the next couple years are going to be a lot of fun for kids and families.”
The park known for yellow plastic people became a little more green on December 14, as Tampa Electric unveiled a 1.8-megawatt solar canopy at Legoland Florida Resort that is producing electricity — and shade — for visitors at the Winter Haven attraction.
The seven rows of Tampa Electric solar panels over the resort’s preferred parking lot, adjacent to the Legoland Florida theme park entrance, can produce enough electricity to power more than 200 homes and enough shade for more than 600 vehicles. It’s Tampa Electric’s second large-scale, community-sited photovoltaic (PV) array to be installed in its territory, and its first large-scale array in Polk County.
“We are proud to be a partner with Legoland Florida Resort on this project,” said Gordon Gillette, president and CEO of Tampa Electric. “This is an exciting example of how community partners can work together to demonstrate the benefits of solar energy and the role it plays in our energy future.”
Tampa Electric owns the PV array, and the electricity it produces goes to the grid, benefiting the company’s 730,000 customers. The solar array can generate enough electricity from the sun to power the resort’s 152-room Legoland Hotel.
“We’re delighted to partner with Tampa Electric on this smart, innovative project,” said Adrian Jones, general manager of Legoland Florida Resort. “It not only benefits guests with shade for their vehicles, but it’s also a terrific demonstration of what can be achieved when businesses combine their skills and resources.”
Tampa Electric’s new system at Legoland Florida Resort joins a smaller PV installation already in its theme park. In 2014, the company installed solar panels atop Imagination Zone, a large, indoor attraction filled with hands-on science and engineering-based activities for kids. Tampa Electric has installed nine community-sited solar PV arrays that offer the public an opportunity to see solar up close and to learn about the technology.
