They are dispatched in hero pods to defeat evil and take on a variety of missions.
Now you can join the fun by building and creating your own heroes! And, don't miss the opportunity to meet and greet with LEGO Hero Factory's bravest leader, Preston Stormer (actual appearance times may vary). For more information, visit herofactory.LEGO.com
Seeds have been planted for a brand new partnership at LEGOLAND® Florida that will bring a new adventure to the park. On March 29, 2012, we'll harvest all the excitement as the all-new Fresh From Florida Greenhouse tour opens. The new attraction will showcase the who, what, where, how and why of “farm to table” agriculture along through an interactive learning experience.
Families can get nose to nose with a variety of Florida fruits and vegetables – strawberries, corn, tomatoes – and learn how they’re grown, harvested, cleaned and eventually eaten in freshly prepared meals. The Greenhouse is the result of a partnership with Fresh From Florida, an initiative of the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
We would like to welcome everyone who wants to come have an adventure at LEGOLAND® Florida during spring break. We're so excited that we couldn't wait to share the good news: LEGOLAND Florida has extended operating hours from 9:30 am to 6:00 pm starting this Saturday March 10th and continuing to April 14th, 2012. Parking opens one hour prior to park opening. Attached is our 2012 calendar with updated operating hours for the rest of the year or see our hours on our website.
Arrive early and get ready to explore!
Partnership will spread important safety messages for kids and families
Streamers flew and smoke alarms beeped as the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) kicked off its long-term partnership with LEGOLAND® Florida to provide lifesaving information to families and kids during a press event and special fire safety day at central Florida’s newest theme park.
NFPA will sponsor the park’s fire safety - themed “The Big Test” live show at the LEGO® City Stage where these messages will be incorporated. “The Big Test” is an acrobatic, comedy show in which a cast of characters goes through a series of hysterical antics as they try to become firefighters. There will also be special activities throughout the year that stress the importance of fire safety and acknowledge the critical work of the fire service.
“This partnership allows us to combine kids’ love of the fire service and LEGOLAND to build life-saving knowledge,” said Adrian Jones, LEGOLAND Florida general manager. “We are proud to play this important role for our community.”
“The majority of fire deaths happen in homes where there are no working smoke alarms,” said NFPA President Jim Shannon. “We are excited to join with LEGOLAND Florida to impart two extremely important messages - test your smoke alarms and have an escape plan.”
We look forward to seeing you at The Big Test soon!
A Day in the Life of Jeremy Mini-"Lin"-der: What the Knicks Star would be doing if he didn't have All-Star plans this weekend.
Those with sharp eyes might also spot a cameo appearance by one extremely tall player from the Orlando Magic.
LEGOLAND® Florida is the home of Miniland USA. A crowd favorite, Miniland USA has seven themed areas, including New York City - home to the Knicks, each recreated out of LEGO® bricks and home to hundreds of Minilanders.
This Thursday, February 23rd, come to LEGOLAND® Florida to visit with local firefighters and learn about fire safety at "The Big Test" in LEGO® City. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) will join LEGOLAND Florida as the official partner of "The Big Test", an acrobatic, comedy show in which a cast of real characters goes through a series of hysterical antics as they try to become firefighters.
Arrive early as the Winter Haven Fire Department will have an active fire truck in the LEGOLAND Florida parking lot with local firefighters and NFPA staff on hand to answer questions. Then, thirty minutes prior to each showing of "The Big Test" there will be four interactive stations open in LEGO City where park guests can learn fire safety from local firefighters and NFPA representative.
We invite you to join us at the 12:45pm performance of "The Big Test" where the official partnership announcement will be made.
We would like to congratulate the winners of the LEGOLAND® Florida February Junior Master Model Builder Competition: (left to right) ages 9 & Under - Tommy C. with "Big Head", ages 10-15 - Caleb W. with "Double gun", and ages 16 & up - Aris B. with "Phoenix."
