    It's Official!!! Cypress Gardens to become Legoland Florida!

    This is going to be great for the region and for tourists.

    Can't wait to see the progression of turning the park around and I am sure it will be a hit!!!


    Legoland Florida: Details of new Legoland park revealed - OrlandoSentinel.com

    Central Florida will be home to the world's largest Legoland by the end of 2011, Merlin Entertainments Group said Thursday.
    The park, which is planned for the former site of the historic Cypress Gardens, is expected to create more than 1,000 jobs. The historical gardens will stay intact, according to Nick Varney, Merlin's chief executive officer.

    Varney announced the details of Florida's newest theme park at a news conference attended by government and tourism officials, including Florida Governor Charlie Crist.

    Varney kicked off the event by calling Legoland Florida's "worst-kept secret," referring to the fact that details of today's announcement leaked out Wednesday, after an email surfaced confirming that it was indeed Legoland that was coming to Polk County.

    Legoland, Varney said, "is without question one of the strongest brands in the world."

    A good way of revitalizing an old park...

    Wonder what will happen to the Lego shop at Downtown Disney? Will it remain in a rival resort?

    Well the Lego stores are owned by the Lego Company whereas the Legoland Parks are owned by Merlin Entertainment.
