Farm Animals Arrive at DUPLO Valley!

A herd of cows, goats, chickens, and sheep have arrived at LEGOLAND Florida to graze about in their new homes in the park’s latest expansion, DUPLO Valley! The new area specifically geared to toddlers ages 2 to 5 will officially open to guests on May 23, 2014, just in time for family-fun over Memorial Day weekend! The DUPLO farm animals will be key features in two of the attractions, the mini tractor ride and the water play area.

Farm animals arrive2

The central feature of DUPLO Valley will be the DUPLO Train where toddlers will be able to 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 will be able to jump on a tractor their size and help the farmers plow the cornfields and hunt for missing farm animals. 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.

Farm animals arrive

Another key element will be the existing DUPLO Barn which will feature significant enhancements to allow kids to play indoors in the comfort of air conditioning. Existing attractions will be enhanced with additional DUPLO farm-themed play areas and a toddler room where parents can relax while kids build with DUPLO bricks. The barn’s Baby Care Center will continue to provide all the amenities to take care of young children. It offers private nursing stations, rocking chairs, microwaves, bottle warmers, high chairs, changing stations, cell phone charging stations and more.

Farm animals arrive3

The new DUPLO Valley will add more excitement to LEGOLAND Florida’s line-up of more than 50 rides, shows and attractions dedicated to children of ages 2 to 12.
