Today Theme Park Review was invited to Legoland Florida to check out this year's LEGO Star Wars Days, a weekend special event running this weekend along with May 12th - 13th and May 19th - 20th! LEGO Star Wars Days brings a Star Wars focus to the park with roaming characters, special LEGO versions of Darth Vader and Captain Phasma, a new show and lots of Star Wars-themed activities throughout the park for guests to enjoy in addition to all of the fun you already get during a normal visit to Legoland Florida! And speaking of year-round fun, LEGO Star Wars MINILAND has been expanded with the addition of several new and iconic scenes from Star Wars: The Force Awakens!

All of this Star Wars excitement comes in addition to the park's gigantic lineup of rides and attractions, shows, Cypress Gardens and water park... Not to mention the park's newest additions from the last few years (Ninjago, Chima, etc...). Needless to say, LEGO Star Wars Days is an excellent excuse to get back out to Legoland Florida if you haven't been recently, and there is plenty of reason for you to visit the park in general, especially if you never have before!

https://www.legolandfloridablog.com/2018/05/10/the-lego-movie-world-coming-to-legoland-florida-resort-exclusively-in-spring-2019/

I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to deliver our biggest theme park news since opening in 2011. THE LEGO® MOVIE™ WORLD will open spring 2019! It’s our largest investment yet and it promises to deliver an unforgettable experience as it puts guests right in the middle of Bricksburg, the city where Emmet lives in The LEGO® MOVIE™.

The addition of THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD represents our continuing commitment to providing state-of-the-art experiences specifically designed to create awesome memories for kids ages 2-12. The sights and sounds will be fully immersive bringing THE LEGO MOVIE franchise to life in a way that only a LEGOLAND Park could. We know kids come from all over the world to meet the stars of THE LEGO MOVIE and we can’t wait to see their faces light up as they interact within the imaginative world of Bricksburg.

THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD will be based on THE LEGO® MOVIE™ and the upcoming sequel and feature two new rides, character meet and greets and a giant themed playscape. In addition, the interactive boat ride, The Quest for Chi, will be completely transformed drenching guests in an exciting new experience when it reopens as a key attraction in THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD in spring 2019. Be sure to visit before May 29, 2018 to ride The Quest for Chi one last time!

Is your excitement building yet? Be sure to check back here on the LEGOLAND Florida Resort Blog for the latest news on THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD!

WOW. This park is on the ball, Chima hasn't proved to be a long-term property and seeing they are going to swap it out for something much more popular is an automatic win. I wonder if they are counting the change as one of the two new rides. Good job Legoland!

So For 2019 we now have:
-Harry Potter Motorbike Coaster
-New Show/Attraction in Hollywood at USF
-Mickey's Runaway Railway
-Star Wars Land
-The Skyliners at WDW
-Multiple new attractions at Legoland based off of their second best original IP ( <3 Bionicles).
-Sesame Street at Seaworld
-Unannounced but likely Busch Gardens Project
(and an outside shot that Ratatouille @ Epcot)


What a dream year.

Adam, Do you know if there are any showings of the Lego Movie 4D during Lego Star Wars days or is the theater entirely taken over by Star Wars? I'm heading there on the 20th.
Remember: Get out there and RIDE!

^I’m pretty sure they still had a few showings of the normal films presented in that theater in between the Galaxy of Fun shows.

^ Fantastic, I won't count on it fully but I would love to see that 4D film again, it's probably my favorite I've seen and my pass expires on the 29th. Maybe i'll make two trips before then though, because Legoland is awesome.

Have you ever wanted to fly aboard a Triple Decker Couch? Aspired to ascend the heights of Cloud Cuckoo Land? Fantasized fighting against a DUPLO® alien invasion? You can experience all this and more at THE LEGO® MOVIE WORLD, where guests can step into THE LEGO MOVIE universe and onto the streets of Bricksburg.

Screen-Shot-2018-10-12-at-10.05.02-AM-800x532.png


THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD at LEGOLAND Florida Resort is the only place in the world that you can experience the pure wonder and imagination inspired by THE LEGO MOVIE universe. We’ve been hard at work, building brick-by-brick, to create state-of-the-art experiences that bring THE LEGO MOVIE to life.

Opening early spring 2019, THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD, created in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, will feature three family-friendly marquee attractions, inspired by the characters and themes of the worldwide blockbuster THE LEGO MOVIE and THE LEGO MOVIE 2: The Second Part.

THE LEGO MOVIE Masters of Flight: Hop aboard Emmet’s Triple Decker Flying Couch! This flying theater attraction whisks guests away on an action-packed adventure on a suspended ride with a full-dome virtual screen, giving the sensational feeling of flying alongside some familiar (like Emmet and Wyldstyle) and some new faces like Sweet Mayhem, a character set to debut in the upcoming feature THE LEGO MOVIE 2: The Second Part.

Unikitty’s Disco Drop: Enter through the rainbow portal to join the fun with Unikitty and her many personalities. This ride swoops guests to the tiptop of Cloud Cuckoo Land, then drops, spins and bounces them back down to earth, creating a thrilling and fun experience.

Battle of Bricksburg: Calling all Master Builders! DUPLO® aliens have invaded Bricksburg to come and play! Riders are challenged to stop DUPLO® aliens from invading and stealing LEGO bricks by spraying water at targets.

Screen-Shot-2018-10-12-at-10.05.55-AM-800x533.png


Finish off the day in downtown Bricksburg, the home of Emmet’s Super Suite, a character meet-and-greet experience where guests can hang out with Emmet and all of his friends inside his apartment, the Taco Tuesday Everyday eatery, and The Awesome Shop, filled with take home memories. The downtown area will also include a space-themed playground structure inspired by Benny’s spaceship, plus special photo opportunities.

The fun doesn’t stop in the park. Enjoy the ultimate vacation (or slumber party) just steps away at LEGOLAND Hotel in a new THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD themed room. Designed with familiar scenery and beloved characters from the movie, no detail is left untouched. Adults can relax in a room inspired by Emmet’s bedroom, while kids dream of spaceship adventures in the children’s room, modeled after Benny’s Spaceship. No matter where you stay or how you choose to spend your day, awesome awaits at THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD.

So obviously the splash battle is a retheme, were there any other rides/attractions/food/shopping in this land (Chima I think?) or are the other additions actually new?

There was a small gift shop and some restrooms back by the attraction exit in some kind of bazaar set up, then I believe there was a small splash pad near the entrance with a lego station of some sort.
