Legoland Florida breaks ground on the Legoland Hotel, opening in 2015
The Legoland Hotel will open in 2015, according to Legoland Florida General Manager Adrian Jones. The announcement was made alongside community leaders with a ceremony at the site where the hotel will be built, directly to the left of Legoland Florida’s entrance, just steps from Lake Eloise.
“The opening of a Legoland Hotel will transition Legoland Florida from a single-day visit theme park to a multi-day resort destination,” said Jones.
Welcoming guests with a multicolored exterior and entrance, the four-story The Lego-themed hotel will feature 152 brightly colored and highly themed rooms and suites, Lego décor; interactive play areas; a pool and a restaurant.
Legoland Florida Hotel will add 250 construction-related jobs during the construction, and another 250 jobs to its employee base to staff the new hotel upon completion.
This will be the fifth Legoland Hotel in the world joining Legoland California, Legoland Windsor and Legoland Billund hotels. Legoland Malaysia Hotel will soon open its doors.
At Legoland Florida, guests enjoy more than 50 rides, shows, attractions, a water park and the all-new Lego World of Chima presented by Cartoon Network. At the World of Chima, the whole family can board an interactive splash battle ride, The Quest for CHI, and children can play in Cragger’s Swamp and race handheld rip-chord powered vehicles at the Speedorz Arena.
