Now the California-based Legoland has a sister theme park on the other side of the American continent. At Winter Haven, on the property that once featured the famed water ski beauties, the new facility is now open. Just 80 miles from Orlando, it will display fun and games associated with the popular block-building toys.

Legoland’s 150 acres of Florida fun has all kinds of interactive games, rides and exhibits, most designed for kids between the ages of toddler and teen. Of course, parents and grandparents are welcome to join in, too.

In addition to the Florida and California Legolands, there are branches in England, Denmark, Germany. For more information, go to florida.legoland.com.
