"" The Exhausted Mom: Legoland Fun

November 22, 2011

Legoland Fun

My boys are Lego enthusiasts and couldn't wait to step into a world devoted to one of their favorite toys!  Therefore, this past weekend, we took a trip to the newly built Legoland Florida.  This vast amusement park is located in Winter Haven, Florida, just 45 minutes outside of Orlando (ya know, the city where that really famous theme park is!!).

The park is mainly geared toward children 12 and under...which was just fine by me!  Sometimes teenagers tend to run the little guys over. 


"Little Ricky" and "The Nag" were just the right height to ride all of the rides and were even tall enough to do some completely solo!  "Little Ricky" is more of a daredevil and chooses the fast roller coasters, while "The Nag" needs more coaxing before going on what he likes to call "The big boy rides." 

Legoland had a great mix of all types of rides and play areas.  There were also many areas designated to children under 7.  This would have REALLY come in handy when my kids were younger.  These areas were well intermixed throughout the park so you didn't have to separate as much.

South Beach (Miami) made completely of Legos...girls in bikinis included!

Of course almost everything was made completely of Legos!  Sooo cool!  I really wish I had the creativity to come up with some of these designs!

Vegas baby, Vegas!

A Ford Explorer made out of Legos....and it was life sized.  WAY TOO COOL!

The kids had a BLAST! I really enjoyed myself as well.  The park wasn't overly huge and we were able to ride everything we wanted.  I do wish the park would stay open longer, though.  Right now the hours are only from 10am-6pm on weekends.  But I am sure that as the park grows in popularity, the hours will extend.

And any trip to Legoland wouldn't be complete without a chance to build with, you guessed it, LEGOS!

So the next time you are planning a trip to sunny Florida, plan to stop by Legoland.  It's a MUST SEE for everyone!



  1. so cute! the boys look like they had a great time!!!

  2. We love Legoland! We went to the one in San Diego last winter when my brother got married and it was fabulous! I loved that the kids were tall enough for all their rides too! We can't wait to visit the one near Orlando on our next trip. We'll have to meet there!

  3. How fun.
