What’s New: LEGOLAND Florida has announced that their Miniland USA section of the park is now fully open AND fully shaded, as part of its 10th-anniversary celebrations.
The tweet stated: “Did anyone else notice how much COOLER things were in MINILAND today? THAT’S RIGHT, PARTY GUYS! MINILAND HAS REOPENED WITH A BRAND NEW SHADE STRUCTURE!”
The park announced a slew of fun for the park’s 10th-anniversary celebrations in October 2020, including new shows, events, a 4D Movie, and shade structures installed over the park’s Miniland. More news came during the 10th-anniversary celebrations in September 2021, along with the opening of The LEGOLAND Story and other festivities; Miniland was set to reopen on October 15th.
Only a portion of the park’s area was reopened with completed shade structures at the time. Despite this, many of the city landmarks and skyline models remained inaccessible as work on the land continued.
Now that the work is finished, guests can return to Miniland and see models of:
- California, including Los Angeles and San Francisco
- Florida, including Daytona International Speedway and Kennedy Space Center
- Las Vegas
- Washington, D.C.
- New York City
The area, known to park visitors as a great place to get a tan (at best), provides a glimpse into the brilliant work of LEGO Builders and, thankfully, a relief from the Central Florida sun.
