We went to the premier opening for AAA members on October 8th. The grand opening is on October 15, 2011. It is exciting to be among the first to visit the park and give you a sneak peek of what you have to look forward to if you are going as well.
The park is a 150-acre theme park for families and is located in Winter Haven. The have 50 rides, shows, and other attractions to be enjoyed by Lego lovers. As a kid, I loved playing with Lego bricks especially creating aliens and castles. There is something unique about Lego toys. There intrigue is the reason that 19 billons Lego elements are produced per year!
The Lego creators have really outdone themselves! They have truly captured some of the most spectacular tourist spots in America. Washington D.C is one of my families favorite places to spend vacation. We went there recently which you can see in past entries. I hope you enjoy experiencing a tour of Miniland.
