Legoland Florida

Legoland Florida is a theme park in Winter Haven, Florida. It opened on Saturday, October 15, 2011.[5] Merlin Entertainments Group operates the park which encompasses 145 acres (0.59 km2) of the former Cypress Gardens amusement park, making Legoland Florida the world's largest Legoland park.

More than 50 rides, shows and attractions are featured in the park based on those at other Legoland parks. The Jungle Coaster ride from Legoland Windsor was transferred and relocated to the park and was renamed Test Track.[citation needed] Additionally, the historic gardens which Cypress Gardens was known for are maintained as part of the park.[10] The Splash Island Waterpark was kept and will be a separately ticketed admission. In addition, 4 attractions originally from Cypress Gardens were renovated, renamed and incorporated into the park including The Triple Hurricane wooden rollercoaster, the Okeechobee Rampage family coaster and Swamp Thing a Vekoma family inverted coaster. The Starliner coaster, formerly of the Miracle Strip Amusement Park in Panama City, FL was dismantled for sale. The Island in the Sky ride was also kept and updated for 2011.[7] The park is divided into 11 sections.
