Legoland drops pass price by $30 for state residents

Published Feb. 21, 2013

Legoland Florida has dropped the price of annual pass by $30 for Florida residents. The ticket, which has no black-out dates, now sells for $99 from the previous $129, which is what out-of-staters still have to pay.

The pass, found on the Winter Haven theme park's website, legoland.com, includes admission to its new water park and free parking. There are also special events at the park for Halloween, Christmas and Fourth of July.

Legoland also recently introduced a new pricing system for one-day tickets that lets you save as much as $15 off admission depending on how far in advance you buy the ticket.

The park, which opened in 2011, was built on the site of the old Cypress Gardens. Last summer it added a water park, and in December a Star Wars Miniland was added, a 1.5-million-brick ode to the series with a replica of the Millennium Falcon, a life-size Darth Vader and more.

The theme park is geared to kids ages 2-12.
