LEGOLAND Florida opens DUPLO Valley!

2014.05.21_LEGOLANDFLORIDA_DUPLO_096

It’s a very exciting time for us here at LEGOLAND Florida! We have expanded the park with a new addition, DUPLO Valley.  Now our 2-5 year old guests will have even more to do on their visit with us.

New attractions at DUPLO Valley include a train, a mini tractor ride, and a water play area. The central feature is the DUPLO Train where toddlers can board a train on their own or with their parents to explore countryside-themed scenery passing through farms, fishing holes and campgrounds. Just across the way, toddlers can jump on a tractor just their size and help the farmers plow the cornfields and hunt for missing farm animals.photo

For those looking to cool off, the new splash and play area will be refreshingly fun with intermittent water spouts and interactive water elements set among larger than life farm animals with a soft deck for safety.  The DUPLO Snack Bar will have caramel popcorn, regular popcorn, water and soda available for purchase.

The Baby Care Center, presented by Winter Haven Hospital, provides a nursing and changing area, a cell phone charging station, bottle warming and more! Located inside the Duplo Farm.

Guests can also purchase the new ‘Preschool Pass’, including weekday (Monday-Friday) admission to LEGOLAND Florida and standard parking for both one child under five and one adult for a full year at $90, plus tax. Assigned to the child, the pass allows an adult parent or guardian to attend the park with the toddler. The pass is transferrable to multiple adults in the family, allowing, for example, a mother to visit one day, and a grandparent the next, making it ideal for families to bring their little ones to LEGOLAND Florida during the week.

Below are the height restrictions for each ride in DUPLO Valley:

  • DUPLO Splash & Play: No height requirement
  • DUPLO Farm: No height requirement
  • DUPLO Train: Guests under 34” must ride with a responsible person 48” or taller, guests 34” and above may ride the DUPLO Train unaccompanied
  • DUPLO Tractor: Guests 36”-48” can ride with a responsible person 48” or taller, guests 48” and above can ride the DUPLO Tractor unaccompanied

LEGOLAND Florida Becomes First U.S. Theme Park to Run Completely on Renewable Energy on Earth Day!

LEGOLAND Florida is “going green!” To mark the beginning of a groundbreaking partnership with Tampa Electric, LEGOLAND Florida became the first theme park in the US to run completely on renewable solar energy in celebration of Earth Day.

Earth Day with TECO (3)

As part of the partnership, LEGOLAND Florida will also permanently power a section of the park, Imagination Zone, on renewable energy. The celebration was part of existing and new conservation initiatives, including installations that will educate park guests about solar energy. A 30-kilowatt solar panel array has been mounted atop the Imagination Zone attraction venue and is funded by Tampa Electric, The system supports Tampa Electric’s Renewable Energy program that lets the company’s customers purchase a portion of their electricity from renewable sources.

Earth Day with TECO (1)

“This is a historic day for LEGOLAND Florida,” said LEGOLAND Florida General Manager Adrian Jones. “With our new partnership with Tampa Electric, we will give guests a whole new way to learn about renewable energy while also doing something that no other theme park in the U.S. has done before.”

Earth Day with TECO (5)

A celebratory moment was held just prior to park opening Tuesday, with both Jones and Bruce Narzissenfeld, vice president of Marketing, Customer Service, Business Development and Fuel Operations for Tampa Electric, proclaiming the partnership and special green initiative. Even the confetti was eco-friendly! The initiative will result in environmental savings equal to removing three cars from the road for one year or planting six acres of trees!

Earth Day with TECO (2)

“This is a partnership built on doing the right thing for the environment,” said Narzissenfeld. “Together, we’ll teach the next generation about the benefits of investing in renewable fuels like the sun to produce electricity.

As part of the partnership, a new display will be placed inside the park starting in June, featuring an interactive 6-foot LEGO ® Earth model that educates guests on solar technologies. Located outside Imagination Zone, visitors will be able to affect the rate of LEGO Earth’s rotation with tactile solar panels. Guests will also enjoy an interactive zone that features LEGO mini model communities running on renewable energy inside the Imagination Zone.

Pre-Earth Day2

The new areas add to the multiple educational aspects already within LEGOLAND Florida. The park gives kids a chance to learn and play with STEM-based activities such as LEGO MINDSTORMS robots, Build & Test and Power Towers.

Pre-Earth Day3

LEGOLAND Florida has made a consistent effort for conservation since the park opened in 2011, including:

  • The park recycled nearly 60 tons of bottles and cans in 2013, along with 176 tons of cardboard
  • Throughout the park, guests can find over 180 recycled-made benches, with each made out of 800 recycled milk jugs
  • Each of the park’s 310 trash cans (consisting of both waste and recycle only at a 1-to-1 rate) are made out of 330 recycled milk jugs
  • LEGOLAND Florida has map recycling stations to avoid the waste of park maps that guests can acquire at the beginning sections of the park
  • The LEGOLAND Water Park holds 26 benches and 88 trashcans made entirely out of      recyclable materials

LEGOLAND Florida Foodie Blog: February Edition

For this month’s Foodie Blog we decided to switch things up a bit! We asked Buddy’s Brick Bunch to share with everyone their favorite snacks and restaurants at LEGOLAND Florida. As young advisors and kid reporters on a variety of items related to LEGOLAND Florida, they are quite the experts when it comes to the park! Check out what they recommend to other park guests.

Buddy & friends walking Miniland

A favorite place to dine among the park guests is Pizza & Pasta Buffet; it is also a favorite among Buddy’s Brick Bunch! This all-you-can-eat buffet is Alexander’s favorite restaurant because “the pizza is delicious and cheesy”. Angela says she always eats pepperoni pizza when she visits the park. Buddy’s Brick Bunch also suggests trying the cinnamon bread sticks for dessert.  Another favorite choice is a restaurant located in LEGO City. “I love the Fried Chicken Co. restaurant. The chicken and fries are tasty!” says Aiden.

Out of the many snacking options found at LEGOLAND Florida, Alek’s favorite quick snack item is popcorn, which can be found in LEGO Technic and LEGO Kingdoms. On a hot summer day, Alexander loves to indulge in a slushy from Fun Town Slushy. Sounds like a tasty way to cool off in the Florida sun! Aiden chose Ice Cream from Sunny’s Ice Cream Shop in Fun Town. Creating your own sundae makes the ice cream treat even better! For a healthy snacking option, Angela recommends the apple and grape fruit packs found around the park.

At LEGOLAND Florida, we offer special dietary options. Alek recommends checking the LEGOLAND Florida website or the signage around the park to see which dining options have allergy-free meals. LEGOLAND offers gluten-free meals as well, and Alexander’s favorite is Granny’s Apple Fries because he can share them with his whole family!
