WINTER HAVEN, Fla. — Legoland’s newest expansion is a hit.

Hundreds lined up Wednesday to see 'The Lego Movie' brought to life in Legoland’s ‘Lego Movie World.'

It features new rides like Unikity Disco Drop, Masters of Flight, Battle of Bricksburg and shops inspired by The Lego Movie and The Lego Movie 2.

“It was a happy coincidence we were here for opening day,” Susan McNally brought her three young kids to Lego Movie World during spring break.

Legoland Florida Resort says the theme park and Warner Bros Consumer Products came together to create Lego Movie World and its new attractions.

“It really feels like a bunch of different parts of the movie one spot,” Luke McNally, Susan’s son, says he was super impressed by the park.

Polk County brings in more than a billion dollars in tourism sales each year, and representatives say they’ve seen Legoland’s contribution in the community.

“I’ve just watched the community grow and Legoland contribute to Winter Haven here so it’s been nice to see,” Chloe Boehm, with Legoland Florida Resort, said.

ABC Action News discovered ticket prices have not gone up since November of 2018 but the park representatives say they will be evaluating the cost in the coming weeks.
