Like every good Florida theme park, you need a castle and LEGOLAND Florida is no exception with an enchanted castle that is visible from the main road.

Originally called Castle Hill, the LEGO Kingdoms land has a medieval theme with a castle, courtyard, knights and damsels, dungeon hideaways, dragons and a variety of rides and attractions. You can even dress up as a princess.

The Dragon

The Dragon in an indoor/outdoor steel roller coaster that takes you on a humorous spin through the Legoland Castle. Formerly the Okeechobee Rampage junior roller coaster at Cypress Gardens, the Dragon has been re-themed to fit in with the medieval look.

Minimum rider height is 40 inches and guests less than 48 inches must be accompanied by a responsible rider.

The Dragon was built by Vecoma, the length of the track is 1099 feet (335 metres) and the ride runs for 1:06 minutes at speeds of up to 28.5 mph (46 kph). There are no inversions.

The Royal Joust

The Royal Joust is a LEGO themed horse ride through a series of medieval scenes and enchanted forests where you encounter other riders in a simulated knight’s joust.

Minimum rider height is 36 inches and guests must be between 4 and 12 years of age.

Merlin’s Challenge

The Merlin’s Challenge is a fast spinning carousel merry-go-round style ride with “wooden” carriages each holding four riders. As the ride spins around a central Merlin character, the carriages undulate up and down.

It is similar to the Caterpillar ride found at other LEGOLAND parks.

Minimum rider height is 36 inches and guests less than 48 inches must be accompanied by a responsible rider.

The Forestmen’s Hideout

The Forestmen’s Hideout is a tree and rope climbing play area.
