The search continues for a site for Legoland's second U.S. theme park

Previously, Merlin's looked at several sites in suburban Kansas City as well as at Columbia, Illinois, another St. Louis suburb.
Merlin executives announced in 2006 that the company would build another Legoland within 3-5 years. That window's closing fast, as no site's yet been secured for the new park. Clearly, Merlin has its eyes set on a building a seasonal park in suburban location somewhere in the Midwest. And they favor the I-70 corridor, as all potential sites mentioned to date have lied within a few minutes' drive from that highway. Merlin's blown through Kansas City and now is working St. Louis.
Hey, Indianapolis, get ready. ;-)
