Legoland Florida Construction on Schedule

Legoland Florida is on track for its Oct. 15 opening, featuring new attractions and familiar favorites from its predecessor, Cypress Gardens, according to WESH Orlando.

Hundreds of people are at work readying the 150-acre attraction, a process that included the relocation of many old oak trees. Photographs show Legoland figures in place, buildings taking shape and roller coasters under construction.

Kim Isemann, director of marketing and sales, says there are four roller coasters, more than 50 rides, several shows, plus the ski show and Cypress Gardens from the old park. There’s also the newly refurbished Island in the Sky, which will give visitors a view of the park and far beyond — from the roller coaster at Castle Hill to Miniland with its view of the New York skyline a la Legoland — from a rotating platform 150 feet in the air.

For that privilege, adults will pay $75 per day and children, $65. An annual pass is $129 for adults and $99 for children; a lifetime pass costs $2,500. That’s a lot of Legoland.
