Park-wide star search and giant LEGO® mural build add to the celebration at LEGOLAND® Night Lights

Your chance to win a special prize pack is just a LEGO® brick away! Pick up a special scavenger hunt form from Pick-A-Brick Factory Store or Imagination Zone and search the park for fallen stars.

Here are a few tips for your search:

  1. Three stars are located where five of our favorite friends call home.
  2. Search kingdoms for five fallen stars, but be careful, one of these is guarded by a dragon.
  3. The buildings of MINILAND USA are great landing spots for stars to fall. Five stars to be exact.
  4. 25 total stars need your help making their way back into the sky!

2016.06.21_LEGOLANDFLORIDA_STARSEARCH_0005See if you can capture them all and make your way over next to Lakeside Sandwich to build a LEGO masterpiece alongside Master Model Builders! Start building at 4 p.m. until the lightiest mural to ever appear is completed!

Don’t miss your chance to light up the night with us! Only two weekends left of LEGOLAND Night Lights!

Taste the possibilities at Firehouse Ice Cream

Since signed into law by presidential proclamation in 1984, Americans have celebrated National Ice Cream Month every July and National Ice Cream Day on the third Sunday in July. (That’s July 17 this year.)

This year, why not celebrate with a scoop, cup, cone or sundae at one of the many locations serving ice cream at LEGOLAND® Florida Resort?

The awesome new Firehouse Ice Cream in LEGO City has a terrific menu of delicious choices, including eight flavors of Breyers ice cream, 15 different toppings and four sauces, plus two signature sundaes. Yum!

2015.06.26_LEGOLANDFLORIDA_HEATLAKE_0152The ultimate indulgence, the Rescue Squad Sundae, is made with a choice of a chocolate chip cookie or brownie, four scoops of ice cream, two sauces, two toppings, whipped cream and served in a souvenir bowl.

That got us thinking — how many different ways are there to create that sundae? To figure out the total number of possibilities, we turned to our resident math whiz and number cruncher, Ken. Here’s the answer:RescueSquadSundaeInfographicB

Pokémon spotted at LEGOLAND Florida Resort

The tremendously popular new app Pokémon GO has kids seeking to “catch ‘em all” all across our resort!  Guests are welcome to play during their visit, but we’ve issued a few ground rules to ensure a safe search.

IMG_1247

Pokémon caught posing with Emmet and Wyldstyle.

Rules for a safe Pokémon GO quest at LEGOLAND Florida Resort:

  • Even a Pokémon Master must stay within guest areas. Please don’t climb any fences or follow any Pokémon into employee-only areas.
  • No catch is worth sacrificing your safety. All play must pause throughout the duration of your ride until you exit the ride.
  • Be sure not to bump into one of our more than 28,000 LEGO® models – that could hurt!
  • With more than 100 Pokémon to catch, be sure to stay hydrated.
  • If you find a Pokémon at the Fun Town Pizza Pasta Buffet, let the nearest Model Citizen know, we prefer pepperoni over Poké Balls.
  • If hours of play have unleashed the power of your phone, recharge in the Imagination Zone.
  • If your wild encounter leads you to Wyldstyle, keep in mind she may need to stop for a selfie with another guest before you can make your catch.

Merlin’s Magic Wand unveils latest ‘Magic Spaces’ project at Orlando facility for kids and families

Merlin's Magic WandMerlin’s Magic Wand, the global charity run by the parent company of LEGOLAND® Florida Resort, recently helped put some magic into the lives of kids who need it most.

Three therapy rooms at The Howard Phillips Center for Children & Families near downtown Orlando, Fla., were given magical makeovers as part of the Merlin’s Magic Spaces initiative, turning the formerly ordinary spaces into extraordinary examples of Merlin Entertainments’ creativity and compassion.

 

LEGOLAND1The whimsical new décor was inspired by Merlin’s Central Florida attractions — LEGOLAND® Florida Resort, The Orlando Eye, Madame Tussauds and SEA LIFE Aquarium — and created in collaboration with Merlin Magic Making, Edd Musgrove Creative and Attraction & Entertainment Solutions.

The rooms are used for therapy and other services offered at the center, which helps kids and families who face overwhelming challenges like child abuse, developmental disabilities and lack of access to medical care.

Merlin's Magic Spaces“These rooms have been dramatically transformed into magical, inviting spaces to the delight of the children and families we serve,” said Marie Martinez, operations manager at The Howard Phillips Center for Children & Families. “Our therapists have been using these rooms for about three weeks now and everyone just loves them.”

COMING THIS FALL: An American classic born in 1964 will be reborn in bricks at LEGOLAND® Florida Resort

This fall, kids can discover the car that re-defined cool when we unveil the next giant LEGO® model here at LEGOLAND® Florida Resort.

In the spring of 1964, the Ford Mustang’s long hood and short rear deck made it an instant sensation when it was introduced to an eager public. More than a half-century later, we’re introducing that American classic to a whole new generation in an awesome way.  In association with Southern Ford Dealers, one of our longtime sponsors, we’re creating a life-sized version of the original Mustang out of thousands of LEGO bricks.

Mustang-CLIP-Working-PD-WhiteThe giant Mustang model will be built at the U.S. headquarters of The LEGO Group in Enfield, Conn., and then will make several appearances around the country before arriving at the theme park this fall. It’s a 1:1 replica of the so-called “1964½” V8 coupe, the very first model that delighted American car buyers after debuting at the New York World’s Fair on April 17, 1964.

Southern Ford Dealers

The life-size “1964½” Ford Mustang model will go on display outside the theme park’s popular Ford Driving School attraction, courtesy of longtime sponsor Southern Ford Dealers. Visiting the park recently were, left to right, Joe Cohen, Global Team Blue; Jim Scott, Jarrett-Scott Ford; Blakeley Vinicky, Global Team Blue; Philip Weikert, Weikert Ford; and Brian Jarrett, Jarrett Automotive Group. Blakeley is holding a LEGO® Ford Mustang GT, from Speed Champions set No. 75871, released in 2016.

Ford Driving School is where this timeless beauty will call home, replacing the LEGO version of the Ford Explorer that has appeared in thousands of guests’ photos since the theme park opened in 2011. Don’t worry — we’ve got plans for the Explorer. After a bit of TLC, it’s going on permanent display at an exclusive location we’ll announce at a later date.

Detroit produced 92,705 versions of the 1964½ Mustang, but only LEGOLAND Florida Resort guests will be able to beam at this original. Don’t be surprised if this pony has a few secrets under its hood!

The LEGO Master Model Builders in Connecticut know approximately how many bricks it will take to re-create the first Ford Mustang. Do you?
