Where: 1 Legoland Way [map], Winter Haven, FL, United States, 33884

Theme park openings are awesome, and today we plan to bring you all the latest and greatest as the fine folks of Legoland take the cellophane off their latest park in Winter Haven Florida and let us take a look around today.

It is media day, and Legoland Florida was kind enough to invite us and let us have a look around a day before the park opens to the public.

Miniland, Aqua Wave Racers, and maybe even some Lego Battles await -- so sit back relax and get ready to be awash in the inimitable Lego color palette -- live blog style.

I want a LEGO hybrid car!!! Is it only for kids to drive around, like a go-kart or one of those old battery-powered jeeps everyone had in the 1990s? If that's the case, I would wear ankle & shin protectors while walking around.


i used to work in the bertelsmann building in times square so that is kinda freaky.

as for vegas, i bet they didn't put in the Wynn because it wasn't gimmicky enough. Did you see any Sirens at TI though?

and yes, agree with @Jetsetcd, having kids drive around the park in those cars, however hybridy they may be, is a baaad idea.

@Juliana @JetSetCD

TI for sure, tons of it. The kids can only drive in the two driving parks, guessing they were just "fueling up" the cars where I saw them coming into the park.
