Legoland owner buys Cypress Gardens

What this means? Your guess is as good as mine. Stuck in a lousy location away from Florida's major highways, Cypress Gardens has never had great success, though its won fans during its various incarnations over the years.
Some folks seem to hope that Cypress Gardens could become the site of a new Legoland Florida. Merlin's been rebuffed so far in its attempts to find a site for a second U.S. Legoland in the Midwest. And Legoland did select Carlsbad in Southern California for its first U.S. park, rather than building in more traditional tourist areas near Anaheim, San Diego or Los Angeles.
But Merlin owns many brand names, so there's no reason why the company couldn't try to give a Cypress Gardens-branded amusement park a go.
