WINTER HAVEN — Legoland Florida will add another brick in its wall of attractions with the opening of The Lego Movie 4D on Friday, upping the ante on a new 12-minute 3D feature by adding wind, fog and water effects.

The film, which features fan favorites Emmet, Wyldstyle and Unikitty, as well as the rest of the gang from the hit movie, will be shown several times a day in the Polk County theme park.

Legoland officials said the new story picks up where 2014's The Lego Movie left off with everyone celebrating their new-found freedom to be individually awesome.

A new character named Risky Business calls the gang back together to share his plan for opening a theme park that looks a lot like Legoland. That's where the wind, fog and water effects come in to take the feature into the fourth dimension.

And every Saturday and Sunday in February, kids can meet and take photos with characters from the movie during extended park hours that culminate in a fireworks show.

Legoland admission is $75, but if you book early you can get up to $15 off your ticket price, and there are Florida resident deals on season passes. For tickets and park hours, visit florida.legoland.com.
