“The LEGO Movie 2” may have already concluded its theatrical run, but the franchise experience is only just starting. The best place to immerse oneself in the world of Bricksburg is in the LEGOLAND Resorts. In particular, LEGOLAND Florida has had the honor of getting the first LEGO Movie World themed area. Announced months ago, it finally opened this week.
As the song goes, “Everything is Awesome” as LEGOLAND Florida Resort finally opened the doors of LEGO Movie World to guests this Wednesday, March 27. Repurposed from the old “World of Chima” land, LEGO Movie World is easily LEGOLAND Florida’s biggest expansion, almost a theme park in and of itself.
Three rides dominate LEGO Movie World: Unikitty’s Disco Drop which is the tallest feature in the area, the Battle of Bricksburg splash ride-and-shoot, and the LEGO Movie Masters of Flight flying theatre ride. Minifigure characters from the films hang out there for meet-and-greets, while other amenities include the Taco Tuesday restaurant, a retail store, children’s play area and a performance stage where the opening program was held, with “Catchy Songs.”
Project director Kieth Carr of Merlin Entertainment’s “Magic Making” division, which designed LEGO Movie World, noted that the new area will serve as a game-changer.
“The immersion and theming that we’ve incorporated into the area is unlike anything we’ve ever done,” Carr relates to Florida Today. “Our guests will have so much fun on all three rides, but the land’s marquee ride, The LEGO Movie Masters of Flight encompasses the only 180-degree turn on a flying theater in the world.”
