From Nick MarkhamSure it is! Legoland has this coll attraction called Miniland where you take this boat past miniaturized lego versions of national monuments like the Golden Gate Brisge, New York City, ETC.

From Zack McDonaldIt's geared towards boys (5-12) and is a great place for kids. Adults enjoy it with the kids; however Adults by themselves would only need a few hours to cover the park.

From Tiffany J. L. AlfonsoIf it's really popular for adults and kids, then it's not only for kids. I speculate that if it's very popular, I think that the turismos (South American youth travel groups, including the Brazilian tour groups) would check this out!

From Tracie SheldonI'd say it depends on many things. First the Florida park is suppose to be the largest Lego theme park yet, so I'm assuming that it is going to have more/different rides than we have seen in their past. I go to Legoland California on at least a monthly basis with my two kids (ages 4 and 2) I love it there. I can see myself going without the kids, not for the rides but to walk around see what they're building, plus I think they have the best theme park food by far!! If you want to know more about my feelings on Legoland California I have posted a few Blogs about it at mymommymusings.com

From Tony DudaLegoland Florida is taking over (and really rebuilding) Cypress Gardens and will keep a lot of the gardens and water shows or so I heard. This should be a world class new park when done with stuff for all ages.

From Sue TyeHi, I have seen the recent enquiries about Legoland coming to the USA. We have a Lifetime Pass for the one in the UK, and have used it on numerous occasions each year since we bought it, some 5 years ago. No-one in my family are high thrill ride seekers, so if you are used to the really high adrenaline type rides, then Legoland may not be for you. Having said that, we do still enjoy all the rides it has to offer, and the queues are not too bad as many of the teenagers etc, who want a high thrill ride do not bother to ride on them. In all fairness we do not actually stand in the queues because our daughter has special needs, but even the guests who have to queue do not seem to take very long to get to the ride. Overall, I think it is good value for money, or otherwise I wouldn't have purchased a Lifetime ticket. Hope this helps.

Does yours have like Miniland UK or something?
Ours has a whole boat ride that tours around miniature, perfect, Lego models of US monuments!
From Sue TyeHi, yes the UK one does have a miniland, which is well worth a few hours spent just walking round that, let alone doing the rest of the park. As lifetime pass holders we get to go on preview nights when the new ride is being launched and get to ride with just a few other families when the park opens just for us. (We also have our name made out of lego at the entrance on a brick wall which is really cool!). It would be nice to have the new finished by next year as we holiday in Florida and would get in free!! Have fun!
