A new attraction has opened at Legoland Florida Resort – the Florida Prepaid Schoolhouse, an indoor play area that invites younger guests to explore learning and future careers.
This new attraction was built in partnership between the Central Florida theme park and Florida Prepaid College Savings Plans. The Florida Prepaid Schoolhouse features a new entertainment stage, school-themed play equipment, Duplo brick play areas, and a touchscreen where kids can practice their numbers and letters while exploring future careers.
There’s also a fun photo-op outside the schoolhouse, located in Duplo Valley, that features Duplo cutout figures depicting careers like marine biologist, doctor, and teacher.
“Florida Prepaid and Legoland Florida Resort want to encourage Florida families to support their children’s imagination, while saving for their college education,” said John Rood, board chairman. “When children are building with Duplo and Lego bricks, college can seem very far away. But the earlier families start building a college savings plan, the less stress and debt they have to face later.”
To celebrate the new attraction, Florida Prepaid is giving away 10 college scholarships, sponsored by the Florida Prepaid College Foundation. Now through Nov. 24 at 5 p.m., families can enter to win one of 10 packages that each include a 2-year Florida College Plan Scholarship and two tickets to Legoland Florida Resort. All entrants are automatically entered to win one of four Legoland Florida Resort weekly prize packs.
“A college education is truly one of the greatest gifts, and we look forward to giving that gift to 10 Florida students,” said Kevin Thompson, executive director of Florida Prepaid.
