We checked out what's new in theme parks this year

With Memorial Day weekend ushering in the start of summer, we take a look at what the Sunshine State's many theme parks and attractions have to offer new this season. Among the goodies are new water park attractions at Legoland and Wet 'n Wild, as well as the start of the Disney Fantasyland remodel, the nation's first zip line roller coaster and Universal's Despicable Me ride to go with its movie-themed parade and lagoon show.

And being a Florida resident gets you a price break at most of these attractions if you jump on the Internet early and use your tickets before the height of vacation season.

Please keep your arms and legs inside the vehicle as we embark on a tour of this year's hottest new attractions.
