You can get official mobile apps for several of Florida’s theme parks and now Legoland Florida have released a Legoland Florida mobile app; free on both the iTunes and Android Stores.
Features include an interactive park map showing all the rides, shows, restaurants, shops, first aid centres, lost parents locations and ATMs. For each location it shows you its position on the park map and if you are actually in the park, tells you how far away you are.
You can zoom in or out and the map has three display options:
- a regular colour perspective “brochure” style map (the default)
- a satellite image or
- an augmented reality view if you are actually in the park
Clicking on a location icon on the map brings up an information box which you can then click for further details. For each attraction there is a star rating, a short description and details of any height or age restrictions so you can plan according to the make up of your party. For shows, it will show you the next show time.
Before you visit Legoland Florida, you can plan your day at the park by creating a customised trip and choosing which rides, shows and attractions you want to see. When you get to the park, you can then click on each of your specified attractions to get further details.
Other options include getting driving directions, the weather forecast, checking operating hours and days, special offers, upcoming events and even buying tickets including the special round trip shuttle bus from Orlando to Winter Haven. Remember unlike most other Florida theme parks, Legoland Florida is not open every day during the winter months.
There is also section with frequently asked questions, a Lego quiz and trivia and even an option to mark the location of your car on a satellite map before heading into the park to make it easier to find it at the end of the day.
If you are into social media, you can connect to Facebook or Twitter right from the application. If your device has a built in camera then you can take a photo from within the app.
Note that some features of the Legoland Florida mobile app need access to your network whilst you are in the park, to be able to operate.
