Legoland Florida is a kid’s paradise, especially for youngsters who love Lego bricks. There are plenty of adult Lego fans, too, and they marvel at Miniland and enjoy the impressive Lego models throughout the park.
What if you’re an adult without kids and you’re curious about the park? Will you enjoy it, or will you be bored? I personally like it so much that I have an annual pass, and I find that there’s plenty for adults to do. Here’s a sampling:
-Rides. Yes, some of the rides are limited to kids, but most accommodate adults, too. No, the roller coasters aren’t huge and thrilling, but I still enjoy Coastersaurus, Technic Test Track, Flight School, and the Dragon (see video at left). I don’t view them in the same way I view the “big boys” like Cheetah Hunt and SheiKra at Busch Gardens. They’re more like a fun return to the Kiddieland rides of my youth, but with a Lego flair.
Miniland USA: I don’t know how anyone, Lego fan or not, could fail to be impressed by Miniland USA. There’s something fascinating about the detailed Lego reproductions of major Florida cities, as well as other places like Las Vegas and New York. I see new details every time I visit. Legoland even adds little details for the holidays, like lots of Santas at Christmas and kissing couples for Valentines Day.
-Shows. The shows are definitely geared to kids, but the 4-D presentations in the Wells Fargo Theater are a nice place to relax and cool down after hanging out in the sun in Miniland. No, they’re not state-of-the-art CGI, but they’re cute and I enjoy the wind, snow, and other effects.
There are also live shows, like Brickbeard and The Big Test. Brickbeard is worth seeing for the water skiing, and The Big Test has some funny moments that adults can appreciate.
-Cypress Gardens: I love the Cypress Gardens section. It’s a nod to the park’s history and a nice place for a laid-back stroll in the shade. I especially like visiting it during different seasons to see how the foliage and flowers have changed.
I’ve written an entire Legoland Florida guide geared especially for adults. It’s available on Kindle and Nook. I also have a general guide to the park on Kindle and Nook.
