Guests can experience The Lego Movie World starting March 27!

This park expansion features three new rides and other attractions, all inspired by “The Lego Movie” and its new sequel, “The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part.”

The creative minds behind Legoland Florida have re-created Bricksburg for the park, complete with its characters, new and creative dining spaces, and an authentic cityscape where guests can experience Emmet’s Super Suite.

“The Lego Movie World is our largest addition to date and will provide guests around the world with the ultimate movie-to-theme park experience,” said Keith Carr, project director of Merlin Magic Making. “The park just screams fun everywhere you look; kids and families alike can interact with various characters, enjoy ride technology that’s the first of its kind and dine on tasty tacos at Taco Tuesday Everyday. Not to mention, we have a spaceship playground!”

The immersive land’s three new rides will, of course, stay true to Legoland Florida’s kid-friendly experience.

“The rides truly capture the whimsical fun and quirky nature of the popular Lego movies,” said Rex Jackson, general manager of Legoland Florida. “The Masters of Flight ride will be iconic to our park, Unikitty’s ride sings and spins with her ever-changing emotions and the Battle of Bricksburg is themed around huge Lego Duplo aliens. With great partners in Warner Bros. we’ve developed a park that will bring a lot of smiles to children and their families. We’re thrilled to be the only location for fans to experience The Lego Movie World.”

Highlights of the new themed land include:

The Lego Movie Masters of Flight

This attraction takes guests on a suspended ride aboard Emmet’s Triple Decker Couch surrounded by a full-dome virtual screen, giving them the sensation of flying through a Lego world. This is the first attraction at any major theme park in the world to have a 180-degree turn in the ride experience. The ride’s animation will feature a fun and magical adventure as guests travel through Middle Zealand, Cloud Cuckoo Land, and Pirate’s Cove.

Unikitty’s Disco Drop

This ride takes guests on a magical journey based on Unikitty and her many moods. Once onboard, guests will rise to the top of Cloud Cuckoo Land, and then spin, drop, and bounce back to the ground below.

Battle of Bricksburg

This is the only water ride in The Lego Movie World. It will challenge riders to stop Duplo aliens from invading and stealing Lego bricks by spraying water at targets from guests’ boats. Outside of the ride will be water cannons, which other guests can use to spray the aliens and help riders save the day.

Eateries, shops and more

The Lego Movie World will also feature the dining location Taco Tuesday Everyday; The Awesome Shop, filled with plenty of collectibles; and a space-themed playground inspired by Benny’s spaceship that will include photo-ops and character interactions.
