Join us at LEGOLAND Florida for Red, Brick & Boom our first ever Independence Day celebration! We’ve scheduled not just one, but four nights of family fun and fireworks, July 4-7, 2012. But, this isn’t a typical fireworks show. LEGOLAND Florida’s special 3D glasses turn ordinary fireworks into millions of exploding bricks making this show a must-see.
Fireworks viewing glasses will be distributed to park guests starting at 7pm in Miniland and Technic, as well as both ski stadiums. The best viewing spots are the north and south ski stadiums and Miniland USA at the edge closest to the water. Please obey all barriers in the area as they are there for your safety.
A special all-American blow-out bash is reserved just for the 4th with special entertainment, backyard games on the Mansion Lawn and a Party in Miniland USA. Families can also build their very own star to add to LEGOLAND Florida’s first American Flag made out of thousands of LEGO bricks.
Red, Brick and Boom is included with park admission. This independence celebration is perfect for families with children ages 2 to 12. The park will close each of the four nights with a fireworks show at 9pm. Guests will also enjoy extended summer hours where families can stay and play until 8pm daily Jun. 23 through Sept. 2.
We hope to see you there to help celebrate our first Fourth of July and our nation’s independence!
Its official. The all-new LEGOLAND® Florida Water Park officially smashed the Guinness World Record for the most people keeping beach balls in the air. Guinness confirmed that LEGOLAND Florida Water Park beat the previous record of 401 and set a new Guinness World Record with 1,294 bouncing beach balls in the air.
The record breaking attempt took place on May 24, 2012 to celebrate LEGOLAND Florida’s all-new water park attraction. After setting the record, guests were able to enjoy the rest of the day at splash-filled water park attraction, a “park within a park,” that includes a Build-A-Raft River, where guests can build their own LEGO® inner tubes and float down a 1,000-foot lazy river. For the little ones, the DUPLO® Splash Safari is a toddler haven with perfectly sized slides and a zero-depth wading pool. Guests of all ages can play for hours at the Joker Soaker water playground, a riot of brightly colored ladders, levers, pumps and slides of every length and type. And a 583,000-gallon, crystal-clear wave pool and five slippery-fast water slides will thrill families all day long.
Also this summer guests will enjoy LEGOLAND Florida’s extended summer hours allowing families to stay and play until 8 p.m. daily from June 23 through September 2, 2012.
