“The images and sounds will be of complete immersion and will give life to the ‘The Lego Movie’ franchise in a way that only Legoland Park could,” said Rex Jackson, general manager of Legoland Florida Resort, in the press release.
According to the entertainment center, the new park, which does not yet have an exact opening date, will offer three new attractions for children, meetings with the characters of “The Lego Movie”, including the protagonist Emmet, and will be connected to the attraction ” Quest for Chi “, inaugurated in 2013 and that by the 2019 launch will be completely transformed.
