Legoland Florida opens Space City attraction for lunar mission experiences
A liftoff into space exploration is one of the last imaginary thrills offered at Legoland Florida for would-be astronauts from all over planet Earth in search of a spaceship full of memories.
“Come celebrate Space Exploration Day with us by testing your astronaut skills as you explore the lunar base and blast off to the Moon where you can build Lego rovers and rockets!” said a Legoland invite ahead of the attraction’s opening on Wednesday.
Space exploration is one of many summertime celebrations at Legoland during its impressive 10 weeks AWE-Summer of scheduled events and themed experiences for park visitors, according to its website.
These events include family activities, character meet-and-greets, new food items, and weekend events through August 7. AWE-Summer events are included with regular park admission.
Space Exploration Day Wednesday at Legoland Florida Resort is located in the Lego City space inside the theme park’s Imagination Zone.
“It’s an immersive experience that lets families create their own lunar adventure inspired by America’s upcoming space missions,” Legoland said in a press release,
Park visitors will receive a mission briefing before venturing through the airlock onto the moon’s surface, according to the statement.

Once on the moon, families have the choice between two missions, building a rover or a Lego rocket before testing their space vehicle. A weightless photo shoot giving the illusion of floating in space is also part of the attraction.
In other fun AWE-Summer experiences, Legoland said families can “play their way on planet LEGOLAND” as part of The LEGO Group’s 90th anniversary, order a boat for a redesigned Coast Guard Academy, get refresh by booking one of the new Twin Chaser Cabana rentals at the water park or catch a show including Robots to the Rescue, Time to Learn and School of Spinjitzu.
Until August 1, the theme park is offering four for the price of three annual passes, which have been branded as Awesomer or Awesomest annual passes.
Legoland is located in Winter Haven between Orlando and Tampa on 150 acres and features more than 50 rides inspired by Lego characters, a year-round water park, and three hotels.
