Legoland - Fun Town
As you pass out of The Beginning, you enter Fun Town, the LEGO village where you will find shops, restaurants and a 4-D theatre. A lot of the buildings in Fun Town including the Island in the Sky are originally from the days of Cypress Gardens. From Fun Town the park opens up to most of the other “lands" in Legoland Florida.
The Gazebo in Cypress Gardens days has been replaced by a double decker Grand Carousel featuring LEGO horses.
Guests less than 48 inches must be accompanied by a responsible rider.
Wells Fargo 4D Theater
The Wells Fargo 4D Theater (formerly the Royal Palm Theater and LEGO Show Place / Fun Town Theater) caters for different age groups by showing three different movies throughout the day:
- A Clutch Powers 4D Adventure
- LEGO® Movie 4D: A New Adventure featuring Emmet, Wyldstyle, Unikitty, MetalBeard and Benny
- LEGO® Legends of Chima featuring Laval the Lion Prince and Cragger the Crocodile King
Each show lasts between 10 and 15 minutes. The theatre is the largest in Legoland with seating for 700 guests.
A new 4D movie experience called LEGO Nexo Knights will be shown, starting May 26, 2016. It is 12.5 minutes long and features 3D plus special effects including wind, water and fog.
Granny’s Apple Fries
Granny’s Apple Fries are a signature LEGO dessert. Made from slices of crisp Granny Smith apples, powdered with cinnamon and sugar, deep fried and served with a sweet vanilla cream sauce.
The Studio Store sells a number of LEGO licenced toys, souvenirs and apparel including Star Wars™, Batman™, Indiana Jones™, Thomas & Friends™, SpongeBob™ Square Pants, Bob the Builder™, Prince of Persia, Ben 10 Alien Force and Clutch Powers.
You can see some of these characters at the 4D Theater.
Shopping & Trading
If you collect the LEGO minifigures then you can both buy minifigures and also trade complete figures with LEGO employees (Model Citizens).
You can also purchase many of the special bricks and accessories.
The Magnolia Mansion (also known as Snively) was formerly a hospitality centre back in the days when Anheuser Busch owned Cypress Gardens. Built in the 1940s, today it resembles the plantation house Tara in the famous southern film, Gone with the Wind and most recently was used for weddings and corporate events.
Legoland plan to keep the building and it may again be opened to the public one day, possibly as a hospitality centre again or for special events.
