Merlin Entertainments has announced that “everything is awesome.” At least, it will be for those who take a holiday to Legoland Florida, where it is launching “The Lego Movie” in its 4D Cinema. This is going to be more than just a movie; it’s going to be an interactive experience. This announcement was made to the public on February 25.
Instead of just watching “The Lego Movie,” guests at the park will get to live it. This will be done with special lighting effects, wind, water and smoke, bringing the characters to life for the people watching the movie. Merlin Entertainments says that this is one adventure that everyone will think is awesome.
Despite the new interactive movie just being announced, Merlin Entertainments did not say when this new movie will debut. It also noted that the movie will not be limited to only the park in Florida. Over time, it hopes to roll out the 4D experience to parks in Asia and Europe as well. The goal is to have the movie at 11 Legoland Discovery Centers and five other Legoland parks.
It should come as no shock that the Legoland parks want to keep milking this popular movie. In fact, “The Lego Movie” grossed nearly $69 million in its opening week at the box office. On top of that, the movie stayed at number one for three weeks straight.
There will be plenty of places for people to stay when they visit the Legoland park in Florida. This is because the park is getting ready to open a new 152-room, on-site hotel on May 15. This is not only going to give people plenty of places to stay, but will also create nearly 150 new jobs. It’s perfect for people who are travelling from overseas or wish to spend more than one day at the park.
