Legoland Florida celebrates its grand opening
This morning at 10 am local time, the world's largest Legoland officially opened it's doors to everyone in Winter Haven, Florida.
features 50 rides, shows, and "pink knuckle" attractions built for kids and also has hundreds of displays made up of over 50 million lego bricks.
Check out my two photo galleries and see everything there is to see at Legoland Florida:

Im going next weekend! Ill probably post some blog entries about the park.
CHANGE OF PLANS: Im going tomorrow! :D Do they have video recording rules?
I didn't see anyone getting told they couldn't record, so I don't think they have any. Other than hopefully the usual don't record on a roller coaster (even though I did see people break that rule already and they weren't stopped).
They probably don't care much about cameras on the coasters since the odds of a camera becoming a dangerous projectile on those rides are pretty minute (kinda like how Disney doesn't seem to care much - heck, I've gotten angle recommendations from cast members in the past).
Thanks for all the pictures.
James, if you had been to the park prior to the transition to Legoland, the scenery is much the same. Where there are trees, it is very immersive, but there is a lot of open, non-shaded areas at the front of the park. It is quite amazing to see how nature and scenery was incorporated into the park. Also don't forget the old Cypress Gardens are still there and preserved the way they have been for years. There is apparently still a lot of clean up to do from the tropical storms a few years back and so there is still a lot that you cannot access. But overall, there is more scenery than those pictures show. Side note, I love Miniland USA, but can they put like a giant sunscreen over it, it is hot out there. Don't forget the sunscreen!
Just came back! I will be posting an article about the parrk later, and an in-depth look at Miniland (I caught almost every little detail!). Right now, its time to review some rides!
Thanks Domenik. I have never been to Cypress Gardens, never seemed to be a reason to go for a bunch of midway rides and kiddie coasters. However, Legoland might be worth a visit, even though my kids might be just out of the perfect age range (they still love Legos).
Domenik - My 11 yr old is a LEGO fanatic, and we're planning a trip to the park in November. My biggest questions to which I can't find an answer is...Will we need 1 or 2 days to fully enjoy the park? I don't want him to feel rushed, yet I understand it's not a huge park.
126.96.36.199 - I would say you should be able to get everything done in one day. Now the park isn't that enormous (like Disney), but it isn't small either and does involve quite a bit of walking. Don't underestimate it.
