A note with a "concerning message" was found inside of a family bathroom at Legoland in Winter Haven on Wednesday, prompting a very large police response. 

After a brief lockdown, guests are allowed to leave and enter the park after officers swept the property multiple times and found no threat or anything concerning.

The Winter Haven Police Department and Polk County Sheriff's Office responded to the park and walked through the park to check for anything unusual. 

As a precaution, the park guests and staff were not being allowed out of the park and guests and staff were not allowed in the park. Complete sweeps of the park and the hotel were conducted and the threat was deemed not credible.

The park is back to normal operations and residual law enforcement will remain throughout the afternoon.
