Ski show surprise celebrates soldier’s homecoming in time for July 4th

Sgt. Tom Cruz received a brick-tastic LEGOLAND® “welcome home” from a stadium full of guests in Pirates’ Cove on July 3.

The U.S. Army veteran slipped into the cast of our “Battle for Brickbeard’s Bounty” water ski show to surprise his unsuspecting family, who were visiting the theme park at the invitation of a family friend who was in on the secret.

Cruz returned from a six-month deployment in the Middle East a few days early to reunite with his wife, Heather, daughter Jaidyn and son Holden at a place where they’d made happy memories together a few years ago.


Following their emotional reunion, the Cruz family planned to spend Independence Day together enjoying the theme park and LEGOLAND Hotel.

Here’s how the big surprise was covered by Orlando’s Fox 35 TV station (WOFL):

…and on ABC Action News (WFTS) in Tampa:

Meanwhile, LEGOLAND Florida Resort is proud to honor active-duty U.S. service members all year long with free theme park admission and discounted tickets for their guests.

Happy 4th of July from the place #BuiltForKids!
