THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD at LEGOLAND Florida

It’s not often we let our son skip school, but when we do, we go to LEGOLAND! If you’re a fan of LEGOLAND Florida, I’m sure you already know that as of today the new and highly anticipated THE LEGO® MOVIE™ WORLD is finally open to the public. Yesterday my family had the opportunity to get a sneak peek, enjoy the new rides and even sample the food. We. Had. A. Blast! And here’s everything you need to know about the new addition. (BTW…my son hasn’t missed any days at school this year, so missing one day for a bit of fun isn’t going to hurt.)

THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD let’s you step right into the middle of Bricksburg, the city where Emmet lives in THE LEGO MOVIE. Everywhere you look and listen, there are sights and sounds that help to fully immerse you into the movie, in a way that only LEGOLAND could do. Before I get into the specifics, and because I need you to be ready for this, check out my short recap video of my family’s visit.

Okay, now that you’re ready and can’t stop singing, let’s get down to it.

New Rides

The marquee attraction and my favorite ride in THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD is Masters of Flight. It’s a first-of-its-kind attraction that takes you on a suspended ride aboard Emmet’s Triple Decker Couch, surrounded by a full-dome virtual screen. It gives you the sensation of flying through a world created completely from LEGO bricks, and is the first attraction in the world to embed a 180-degree turn in the ride experience.

I wasn’t allowed to take any personal video on the ride and the wait for point of view video was a bit long, so this was the best I could do. But if you ride no other ride in THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD, you MUST ride this one!

Ya’ll…this is legit the coolest virtual ride I’ve ever been on. If you’ve ever wanted smell-o-vision to be a real thing, now it is. As you’re flying through the different lands in this LEGO world, you can smell the trees and cotton candy, and at one point you fly right through a waterfall, feeling the splash of the cool water as you do.

One of the highly advertised rides in THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD is Unikitty’s Disco Drop. I rode this one with my son, and don’t ask me how I got him to because he isn’t the biggest fan of rides like this. Maybe Unikitty just didn’t look very intimidating. Anyways, on Unikitty’s Disco Drop, you swoop to the tiptop of Cloud Cuckoo Land, then drop, go up again, spin (all of this on repeat) and then finally bounce back down to earth.

It’s a short ride, but it’s quite a thrill and fun experience (for most). I think my son really thought he was going to fall because he started freaking out. I had to grab his arm and reassure him he was strapped in and wasn’t going anywhere. We actually took some point of view video on this ride, but I don’t want to embarrass my son too much, so we’re just going to keep the clip to ourselves. I know I’ll be laughing at it later in life and hopefully he will too.

Everything is awesome! Everything is cool when you’re part of a team! Everything is awesome when we’re living our dream!

My kids’ favorite ride in THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD is the Battle of Bricksburg. Someone has to stop DUPLO® aliens from invading and stealing LEGO bricks, so why not us?! How do we do this? Step aboard the Battle of Bricksburg, and spray water at targets placed throughout the ride and the enemies on land.

You can catch video of my kids on this one in my recap video.

I know my kids like this ride the best because they get to shoot water at people, while getting wet themselves. And boy do you get wet! The kids rode it once with daddy and then again with me. We were soaked! But since it’s Florida, it’s usually pretty hot out so it’s a fun way to cool down.

Battle of Bricksburg was also the only ride my daughter was able to get on because she was literally a 1/2″ shy of the 40″ height requirement for Masters of Flight and Unikitty’s Disco Drop. So keep that in mind when visiting with small kids.

On the flip side, right in the middle of THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD is Benny’s Shaceship. It’s a crazy tall, fun play place for kids to climb up to the top of the spaceship and then slide down, only to do it again.

Character Sightings

On any given day, you never know if you’re going to encounter a LEGO character throughout the park. On our first visit we didn’t see any at all, which was kind of a bummer; but at Emmet’s Super Suite, located right as you walk into THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD, you’re sure to have some fun meet and greets with characters from THE LEGO MOVIE. We got to meet and take photos with everyone except Unikitty.

Taco Everyday

My dream has come true. Tacos aren’t just for Tuesday anymore. They’re for everyday! At Taco Everyday, your taste buds will enjoy some amazingly delicious tacos and some sweet treats too. During our sneak peek of the THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD, we stopped by Taco Everyday to try the chicken and seafood tacos.

Okay, so the lighting here was horrible. My bad. We were all so hungry after our 2.5 hour drive and it was hot, so we ate under the shade. Don’t let this fool you, though. The tacos were DELISH!

The chicken taco is hot and packed with tomatoes, cilantro, cheese and more. The seafood taco is cold, every bite filled with a cabbage slaw and chunks of crab meat. Add a squeeze of lime and add a few bites of tortilla chips (that come on the side) and…I honestly can’t decide which I like better, so I recommend just getting both. For real…you’ll thank me later.

Everything is awesome! Everything is cool when you’re part of a team! Everything is awesome when we’re living our dream!

These are made completely out of LEGO bricks! So AWESOME!

Now that I know you’ll be singing this all day, like I’ve been, tell me what you’re most excited for in THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD. Then go get your tickets! And one more time for good measure…

Everything is awesome! Everything is cool when you’re part of a team! Everything is awesome when we’re living our dream!
