It appears a return trip to Orlando may be in the works. With LEGOLAND Florida opening this October and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal's Islands of Adventure, it's definitely time to be a kid again.
Visit florida.legoland.com for all the details. Located on 150 acres of the former Cypress Gardens amusement park grounds, LEGOLAND Florida will be the biggest LEGOLAND park ever opened offering more than 50 rides, shows and attractions including spectacular LEGO models. The other parks are located in California, England, Germany and Denmark, where the toy company was founded.
The heart of every LEGOLAND is the Miniland. This is where the parks draws my interests. Back in 2001 at LEGOLAND Windsor outside of London, I must have used two rolls of camera film (yup, you heard right...film!) to capture as many images of each tiny metropolis.
The miniland at LEGOLAND Florida will include Las Vegas, Washington, D.C., New York City, Kennedy Space Center, Daytona and a Pirate themed section. One feature of New York City will include the Freedom Tower which is still under construction in Manhattan.
Below is a shot of the London section at LEGOLAND Windsor at night. Awesome detail and full of wonder.
