LEGOLAND Florida just announced the opening date for the new The LEGO MOVIE WORLD. Created in partnership with Warner Bros Consumer Products, the newest expansion to the Orlando theme park will open March 27, 2019. The world will feature three rides and numerous attractions, all inspired by the characters and themes of THE LEGO MOVIE and the animated sequel THE LEGO MOVIE 2: The Second Part.
Merlin Magic Making, the global creative and delivery division of parent company Merlin Entertainment Group has re-created Bricksburg with characters, creative eating spaces and authentic city scape 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 in a statement. “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!”
Even with all of that, it is the three brand new rides we are most excited about.
“The rides truly capture the whimsical fun and quirky nature of the popular LEGO movies,” said Rex Jackson, general manager of LEGOLAND Florida Resort in a statement. “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.”
THE LEGO MOVIE Masters of Flight takes riders aboard Emmet’s famous Triple Decker Couch. The couch is surrounded by a full-dome virtual screen, which will make you feel like you are flying through a LEGO world. The attraction is the first in the world at a major theme park that embeds 180-degree turn in the ride experience. The animation will feature such lands as Cloud Cuckoo Land, Middle Zealand and Pirate’s Cove.
Go on a rainbow-filled journey based on Unikitty’s moods on Unikitty’s Disco Drop. You’ll head to Cloud Cuckoo Land, then drop, spin and bounce back to earth, for a wild adventure.
Battle of Bricksburg is the only water ride in THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD. Riders will board a boat and try to stop DUPLO aliens from invading and stealing LEGO bricks by spraying water at targets. Even if you don’t ride Battle of Bricksburg, you can still enjoy the splashy fun through water cannons outside of the ride.
THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD will also feature Taco Everyday eatery, a merchandise store called The Awesome Shop and a space-themed playground structure inspired by Benny’s spaceship which will include photo opportunities and character interactions.
